Celebrity doppelgangers aren’t really rare. With 7.53 billion! people on Earth, some of them are bound to look like each other in some ways. But the resemblance that ‘Legally Blonde‘ actress Reese Witherspoon has with her look-alike is on another level. In fact, they look so much alike that the star’s fans are even saying that they could pass off as twins.
Magazine Cover Throwback
Back in the 90s and early 00s, the now-43-year-old Witherspoon is one of the most bankable teen stars around. And she recently called back to those good old days when she shared a photo of her cover of Teen’s September 2001 issue. The photo featured a 25-year-old Witherspoon and her fans immediately went crazy over it.
Looking at the thousands of comments left under the post, her followers seem to notice two things. First is that the now mother of three doesn’t seem to have aged a day since the photo was taken. And second, she looks almost identical to her 19-year-old daughter Ava Elizabeth Phillippe. In fact, one commenter even said that they initially thought it was Ava who was on the cover.
This isn’t the first time though that the Internet was shocked by the mother and daughter’s uncanny resemblance with each other.
In a previous Instagram post, the ‘Big Little Lies‘ actress shared a photo of her together with her son Deacon Reese Phillippe and Ava, and people immediately flooded the post with amazed comments saying how much the three of them actually look alike.
While it isn’t really unheard of, how parents and their kids can look very similar to each other, fans of the actress pointed out how she might have really strong genes. Similar comments have also been left at Ava’s Instagram account where she once posted a tribute photo for her celebrity mom’s birthday last July.
When fans aren’t busy pointing out the resemblance between the mother and daughter, they’re busy wondering how time and aging seemed to have skipped the youthful-looking actress. Fortunately, she is pretty generous with her secrets to ageless skin to the rest of the world. In an interview with People, she revealed that she’s a firm believer of using sunscreen and even said that it would be the one beauty-related product she’d want to have on a deserted island.
As for the rest of her beauty and skincare routine, Witherspoon said that she uses the Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules which she also thanks for helping her fix her uneven skin tone. She’s also a fan of more affordable products like the Revlon Eyelash Curler and the Cetaphil Face Wash.
