It’s not uncommon for children to resemble their parents. But Reese Witherspoon’s daughter Ava Phillippe more than resembles her mother, she looks almost exactly like her. And, according to what the famous actress recently said, she is more than okay with that.
You can check out this mother-daughter look-alike duo below.
“Well, I love being mistaken for her because it makes me feel so young,” Witherspoon shared.
“I’m so proud of her. She really rolls with it. I’m sure it’s not easy looking exactly like your mother,” Reese Witherspoon also said.
Fortunately for Ava and her mother, this is another famous mother-daughter duo who also look so very much alike. That other duo is daughter, actress Zoë Kravitz, and mother, actress Lisa Bonet. Zoë’s father is rock star, Lenny Kravitz. Witherspoon said she and Ava have turned to Lisa and Zoë for advice on how to handle this issue.
“We talk to Zoë Kravitz a lot. Because she and her mother (Lisa Bonet) look exactly alike, so whenever Ava is frustrated, I go, ‘Call Zoë, text Zoë, she knows what to talk about.’ I mean, that’s another mother-daughter combo that’s like identical twins,” Reese Witherspoon also explained.
Reese Witherspoon Also Talked About Raising Children As a Celebrity
The movie star is also aware that raising children as a celebrity presents its own unique challenges. To help her along the way, Reese Witherspoon has encouraged her children to listen to people they know who grew up around the entertainment business.
“It’s an odd situation because I didn’t grow up famous. So she’s living an experience that I did not have, and so are my sons. We are lucky enough to have friends who grew up in Hollywood and can help give them advice on how to navigate,” Witherspoon also said.
Reese Witherspoon also praised the person her daughter has become.
“Ava is so down-to-earth. She wants to do great things in the world. She’s studying and learning and trying to find herself. It’s a big thing in life to try different things and figure out what is really your path,” the actress shared.
Ava Phillippe is 22 years old. She is one of two children Reese Witherspoon, 45, had with her ex-husband, actor and “Big Sky” star, Ryan Phillippe, 47. The other is their son, Deacon Phillippe, who is 18 years old. Interestingly, he looks a lot like his famous father.
Reese Witherspoon has a younger son, Tennessee James Toth. This boy is the son of Jim Toth.
