It’s not exactly a Hollywood secret that Reese Witherspoon’s 20-year-old daughter, Ava Phillippe, looks just like her. As Phillippe has grown up, she’s only looked more and more like her superstar mom, but a photo they took this weekend on the slopes might be the most lookalike image they’ve ever captured.
“Weekend ski bunnies 🎿,” Witherspoon captured the selfie of her and her daughter overlooking the mountains.
“I love youuuu ,” Ava wrote in the comments.
The mom-daughter duo have a close relationship, which they often share on social media. In November last year, Witherspoon shared a selfie with Phillippe over their lunch at Sweetgreen.
During the same weekend, Phillippe, who is in her second year of college at the University of California, Berkeley, shared a photo of her mom while she was visiting her at school.
Phillippe is also a big encourager of her mom’s career. In December of last year, she posted a congratulatory caption on Instagram after Witherspoon was honored with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Women in Entertainment gala.
“Major congratulations to my mama, who received an award today for her leadership in the industry that she cares so deeply about improving. I’m so grateful to have a mom this thoughtful, passionate, and courageous, and I’m glad other people can recognize how special she is! 💐,” she wrote.
Phillippe’s dad, actor Ryan Phillippe, told Entertainment Tonight in a 2017 interview that he finds it odd to be told constantly that his kids, Ava and Deacon, appear to be carbon copies of their parents.
“I mean, it’s weird, because isn’t that obvious?” he joked. “Who else are they going to look like, you know? I always find that such a weird thing, like, [Ava] looks exactly like her mother, who else is she going to look like? It’s an odd thing that people fixate on that.”
