Reese Witherspoon Admits She Enjoys Being Mistaken As Her Daughter Ava: I ‘Feel Young’

Reese Witherspoon Updates: While Reese Witherspoon appreciates being mistaken for her identical daughter Ava, she admits that it is difficult for Ava to look so much like her famous mother.

Fans of Reese Witherspoon, 45, know that her 22-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe is a stunning replica of her mother. And it appears that Reese approves of the striking mother-daughter similarity! In an interview with Gayle King for InStyle on Nov. 8, Reese said, “I adore being mistaken for her because it makes me feel so young.” She said, “I’m really proud of her.” “She takes it all in stride. I’m sure it’s not simple emulating your mother’s appearance.”

Reese and her daughter, whom she shares with ex Ryan Phillippe, have a particular closeness. Reese told InStyle that she and Ava had spoken to another mother-daughter duo about managing life while appearing so alike.

“We have a lot of conversations with Zo Kravitz,” Reese remarked of her Big Little Lies co-star. “Because she and her mother [Lisa Bonet] have the same facial features, if Ava is frustrated, I tell her, ‘Call Zo, text Zo, she knows what to say.’ That’s another mother-daughter pairing that’s almost identical twins.”

What Reese Witherspoon Shared?


In terms of Ava’s future plans, the Morning Show actress revealed that all of her children, including Deacon Phillippe, 18, and Tennessee James Toth, 9, are maturing differently than Reese. “It’s an odd situation because I didn’t grow up in a well-known household.” So she, like my sons, is going through something I haven’t,” Reese said in her interview.

“We’re fortunate to have pals who grew up in Hollywood and can advise them on how to get about.” Ava is such a down-to-earth person. She aspires to make a difference in the world. She’s researching, learning, and trying to figure out who she is. It’s a major deal in life to try new things and figure out what your true calling is.”

During her interview with Gayle, Reese stated that she will always find time for her three children, despite her hectic schedule. “My children are my first and most crucial priority,” Draper James founder said. “If I told you how much room they take up in my thoughts every day, I don’t think they’d believe me.”

During her eight-year marriage to Ryan, 47, Reese gave birth to her two oldest children (Ava and Deacon). In September 2012, she and her second husband, talent agent Jim Toth, welcomed their son Tennessee. Since then, the multi-talented actress has proudly raised her three beautiful children!
