A studio manager confused the daughter of Reese Witherspoon with the movie star which looks so much like her mother.
The 40-year-old actress has two children, Ava, 17, and Deacon, 13, with her former husband Ryan Phillippe, and the eldest Ava has a striking resemblance to her mom.
In fact, the two look so much alike that she was misidentified as the Oscar winner at the premiere of the film ‘Sing’ in which Witherspoon voices the character of Rosita.
“There was the premiere of ‘Sing,’ and the head of the studio came up to Ava and congratulated her on the film,” the ‘Wild’ star recently told Entertainment Tonight.
“But I love her so much. I am very lucky to be her mother, and I am very happy that she is in my life, and that I can go everywhere with her. It is truly an honor.”
The resemblance between mother and daughter is obvious, and the star even pointed it out in an Instagram post which she shared two weeks ago. But the actress insists she can’t see the resemblance.
Witherspoon also has another son, Tennessee, with her husband Jim Toth. And even though she’s a mother of three, she still has a lot to learn, including everything about social media.
Fortunately, the actress doesn’t have to seek advice from her kids, fellow actress Kathryn Newton, with whom she stars in ‘Big Little Lies,’ has also been helpful. On the new HBO show Newton plays Witherspoon’s daughter. While on set she helped her to decipher the world of Twitter and Instagram.
“I’m like, what is this thing on Instagram, and what does it mean with this hashtag?,” Witherspoon explained. “She’s like, ‘Oh that’s this!”
‘Big Little Lies’ premieres February 19th on HBO.
