When 40-year-old actress Reese Witherspoon recently posted a pic of herself and 16-year-old daughter, Ava Philippe, on Instagram, followers could have been forgiven for thinking the two were sisters rather than mother and daughter.
But Ava isn’t the only ‘mini me’however!
Actress Katie Holmes recently posted a rare shot of herself with eleven-year-old daughter Suri, Although Suri was regularly photographed when she was younger, her parents have kept her out of the limelight more recently. Looking at the pic, it’s clear that, although Suri definitely bears more than a passing resemblance to her dad, Hollywood hunk, Tom Cruise, she’s also practically the double of her beautiful mum.
Former model Cindy Crawford was one of the first ‘super models’ but still looks amazing at the age of 51! Now, Cindy has passed her mega-beautiful genes to her fifteen-year-old daughter, who is also following in her mum’s modelling footsteps! Kaia Gerber is Cindy’s daughter with successful businessman, Randy Gerber, and the family regularly holidays with the Clooneys – George and Amal. Despite the gorgeous looks, however, Cindy recently said that she hopes that the most important thing she has passed down to her daughter is a sense of self.
‘I think the best thing that I tried to pass on to [Kaia],’ she said, ‘is to just be true to yourself and to feel like you’re good enough just the way you are. And then, anything else that you want to do, just listen to that voice inside.’
Wise words indeed!
When it comes to ‘like mother and daughter’ there can be no greater example than the super-successful acting duo of Goldie Hawn and her daughter, Kate Hudson. Goldie was the ultimate ‘it’ girl, producing a raft of highly successful – usually comedy – films such as Private Benjamin, but Kate has matched her mum’s success and continues to churn out one hit after another. Again, the genes are clear to see…Goldie is now an amazing 71 but certainly doesn’t look double the age of her daughter!
Another ‘model’ team are Kate Moss and her daughter, Lila Grace. Although she had always kept Lila Grace out of the public eye, Moss surprised friends recently by appearing with her daughter on the front cover of Italian Vogue magazine.
As the daughter of another famous actress, Blythe Danner, Gwyneth Paltrow is only too aware of how often daughters follow their mothers into the business but with so many different careers running simultaneously, daughter Apple may not know which one to choose! Just take a look at how similar these two are….spooky!
And lastly, the ultimate in ‘mini mes’…..She hasn’t even turned ten yet, but Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre – Katie Price’s daughter with ex hubby, Peter – is already wearing make-up and recreating her mum’s famous pout!
