See the Lookalike Photo of Reese Witherspoon’s Daughter on Her 17th Birthday
Reese Witherspoon may soon be leaping foward in time by transforming into an old woman for upcoming rumored role in Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, but her teenage daughter, Ava, has us turning BACK the clock today to check out the uncanny resemblance between the two on her 17th birthday.
Posting a photo of her daughter that could’ve easily been Reese herself in her teens, the proud mom wrote, “Can’t believe my baby is 17 today! I love you @avaphillippe. Your gorgeous heart and loving spirit never cease to amaze me! I’m so lucky the universe let me be your mother. #HBD #17dancingqueen.”
While we’ve seen the two side-by-side and have DEFINITELY drawn some twinning comparisons in the past, we couldn’t help but reminisce on this old-school photo of Reese at the Australian premiere of Fear back in 1996, when she would have been 20 years old — just three years older than Ava turned today — and boy, are the similarities striking!
From the striking blue peepers to the knowing, close-lipped smile, it’s official: These two are more than just related: They’re practically the same PERSON.
Can someone PLEASE get Ava an Elle Woods bunny costume for Halloween, stat?
Happy birthday, Ava — may 17 be your best year yet!
