Reese Witherspoon doesn't see resemblance between her and daughter

Reese Witherspoon doesn't see resemblance between her and daughter

She's got to be kidding.

Reese Witherspoon says that she just doesn't see it when fans tell her that she and her daughter look identical.

The Legally Blonde actress has been told for years now that she and her daughter Ava could be twins, but the mother-daughter duo can't see what we see.

Reese, 46, was speaking to Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager about all things parenting, as well as her own children Ava, 23, Deacon, 18, and Tennessee, 10 – and it was only a matter of time before someone mentioned the uncanny resemblance.

"Wait, y'all are twins!", Jenna Bush Hager said when Reese shared a photo of her daughter on Today. "She and I don't see it that much", admitted the Academy Award winner.

But even if they don't see it, the rest of us certainly do.

Reese and Ava will often post photos together on Instagram, and every single time they're bombarded with comments about how much they look alike.

Last month, to celebrate Ava's 23rd birthday, Reese shared a snap of the pair smiling together on the beach and wrote: "Happy Birthday to my favourite daughter, Ava !! Every day that I get to watch you become the most amazing woman is such a gift.

"Your gigantic heart, generous spirit, and endless creativity inspire me every day. I love you so much."

Alongside the birthday wishes were countless comments about how much Reese and her daughter looked alike, and could even be twins.

to which one follower commented: "You birthed your identical twin."

Another had written: "I will never not do double takes at this duo." And a third added: "That’s not even normal how exactly alike you look."

Reese shares Ava and son Deacon with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. She also has son Tennessee with her husband Jim Toth.

While speaking on Today, Reese noted that it has been difficult trying to parent three children who are all at totally different stages of life.

"You establish a different relationship," she explained.

"First of all, you're managing them a lot when they're little and it's very physical. And then it's more emotional support. And suggestions, not telling them what to do when they get a little bit older.

"But you have to really nurture your adult relationship with your children too. And give them respect and space to become who they are, not who you want them to be."

Between parenting, her non-stop acting career, her production company, and her book club, it sounds like Reese definitely has her hands full!
