Reese Witherspoon’s Daughter Looks Just Like Her—Especially In This 1997 Oscars Photo

Seeing double yet?

With the 2017 Oscars behind us, we’re doing a little reminiscing on Oscars past. We’re particularly looking back at Reese Witherspoon’s very first Oscar appearance. Witherspoon made her first Oscar appearance in 1997, and there’s something familiar about her photos from that night.

As we’ve mentioned before, Witherspoon and her daughter, Ava Phillippe, look eerily alike. Here’s a picture of the two from Reese’s Instagram showcasing their resemblance. It doesn’t get much closer than that folks!

Mother daughter time ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

And while there’s no denying that the mother-daughter duo look similar today, the resemblance is uncanny if you take a look at Witherspoon back in 1997. Here she is, age 21, at the Vanity Fair Oscar party.

Here’s Ava, age 17, daughter of Reese and Ryan Phillippe. Seeing double yet?

And while we’re reminiscing let’s not forget about Reese and Ryan Phillippe’s debut together in 1999. Remember the classic movie “Cruel Intentions?” It’s also obvious that Ava resembles her father, Phillippe, as well.

But the evidence from 1997 doesn’t lie. Ava is practically her mom’s doppleganger, and we’re a bit jealous. I think it’s safe to say young Ava has a pretty clear picture of what she will look like in her 40s! (lucky girl.)

This just leave us with one lingering question, when will Ava be making her Oscar debut for her own films? We’ll be waiting!
