When it comes to being the daughter of a celebrity, it’s like winning the lottery and for some, it’s a genetic jackpot! Not only do you automatically grow up with a wealthy and glamorous lifestyle, but you’re almost guaranteed to be gorgeous as well. When it comes to certain celebrities, their daughters are practically their twins; they look more like sisters than mother and daughter.
Some daughters think it’s amazing while others aren’t too sure how they feel about looking like their mothers. They want individuality, especially if they too want to become actors — they don’t just want to be known as someone’s daughter. That’s why some of them will change their last names so they aren’t always attached to their celebrity parents when they go on auditions, while others will take advantage of their looks and names.
When it’s all said and done, however, you could hardly have bad feelings about looking like a gorgeous celebrity. In fact, when it comes to these celebs, it’s hard to tell them apart. There are many celebrity daughters, like Rumer Willis on this list, who couldn’t be prouder that they look like their mothers. Judging by the photo, you can see the uncanny likeness to the two of them, it’s almost eerie.
15. Reese Witherspoon And Ava Phillippe
Could these two be more beautiful together? This photo is breathtaking! There is no doubt about it — Ava is definitely her mother’s twin. We have to also acknowledge the fact that she looks a lot like her father Ryan Phillippe — it’s in the eyes. Regardless, Reese and Ryan certainly made an exceptional creature. Right from the beginning, though, she has always looked a lot like her mother, especially these days. The two have a very strong relationship and Reese has always commented on that bond. “This is so dumb, but the other day Ava said, ‘Well, Mom, you said that drinking water with lemon is good for my body,’” Reese commented to Glamour magazine. “I burst into tears going, ‘Oh my God, you listen to me!’ Parenting triumph.”
14. Lisa Bonet And Zoë Kravitz
Wow, talk about two bohemian babes! We weren’t even aware that these two were related up until now — the different last names always throw us for a loop. Lisa Bonet has always been a cool girl and it looks like she passed those vibes onto her daughter. The two share that hippie bohemian vibe, but they do live in Topanga Canyon, California. Not to mention the fact that Zoë ’s father is Lenny Kravitz, she must have grown up in a completely Zen atmosphere. The celebrity world is never an easy one, however, and Zoe at one point suffered from anorexia when she was younger. She has come a long way though, and we are proud of where she is now. The two are a striking match together and it goes to show just how two beautiful people can create something extraordinary. Zoë has said, “My mother’s a… beautiful woman, and I think, in some way, I felt intimidated by that sometimes.”
13. Cindy Crawford And Kaia Gerber
What an honor to be on the cover of Vogue with your supermodel mother, Cindy Crawford. She has the same striking features as her mother, and that fresh-faced look that agencies just love. So it comes as no surprise that Kaia’s become all the rave in the fashion industry. It’s also shocking just how little Cindy Crawford appears to have aged after all this time, so Kaia can be thankful that she has those genes. When it comes to her daughter modelling, Cindy is all for it and is educating her in it as best that she can. Kaia seems to be honored to follow in her mother’s footsteps. “She knows so much about it,” Kaia said of the modelling world to Teen Vogue. “I think it would be hard for her to be on set and not say things like, ‘Psst, Kaia, put your elbow up.’”
12. Demi Moore & Rumer Willis
What?! This is insane. The similarities between these two babes is uncanny. We love how Rumer has grown her hair out just like her mother Demi, and the matching outfits are truly on point. We love everything about this Instagram post. Rumer posted this and stated she finally realized just how much she now looks like her mother, ending the post with #ImNotMad. And we don’t blame her since Demi has also defied age and managed to date men half her age (enter Ashton Kutcher). Rumer was recently one of the Dancing with the Stars champs and has been out in the acting world just like her mother. These days, she’s been on the TV series Empire and has two movies in post-production. Like mother like daughter indeed.
11. Heather Locklear And Ava Sambora
Heather Locklear has always been an iconic beauty, for years she was considered to be one of the most beautiful women in the world. These days, her daughter is stepping into the spotlight and we can’t help but notice that she has her mother’s stunning looks. Ava has that fresh-faced, cute-as-a-button face just like her mother, and the blonde hair and blue eyes certainly don’t hurt her. When Heather was in the TV series Dynasty, she was considered to be “the most desired woman in the world,” so those are some pretty big shoes to fill. Ava has already ventured into the world of modelling; she made her debut last year donning a bikini for a bottled water advertising shoot. It looks like this blonde is having more fun than she can handle, and the modelling world is opening their doors for her.
10. Candace Cameron Bure And Natasha Bure
The two not only look alike, but they dress alike too — their outfits are practically a matching set. These blondes have different shades, but that doesn’t change the fact that they look like they could be sisters. Candace is back in the spotlight these days when she returned to the popular Full House series: Fuller House. Her daughter, who is now 19, is looking to join her in the spotlight as well, but she has a different passion in mind. Natasha is looking to form a singing career instead of an acting one. You may not be aware of it, but Natasha was a former The Voice contestant, and we can’t help but look forward to seeing what kind of music she busts out for us.
9. Kate Beckinsale And Lily Mo Sheen
These days Kate Beckinsale is dating someone that’s just a few years older than her own daughter, so the fact that she has defied age is pretty apparent. We’re not sure how she feels about her mother dating someone so young, but this is Hollywood after all. There’s no doubt about it though, 18-year-old Lily is a spitting image of her mother. As much as Kate wished her daughter would try something else besides acting, Lily has chosen to follow in her parents’ footsteps. Lily’s father is iconic film actor Michael Sheen, and her parents get along very well despite the divorce. Kate has stated in interviews that she can’t be a hypocrite and deny her daughter’s passions, she just wants her to be aware of the good and the bad that comes with acting. Kate loves the fact that she has a mini-me and you will often see them mean mug in Instagram posts.
8. Christie Brinkley And Sailor Brinkley
Another modelling duo, Christie and Sailor Brinkley have posed together on numerous covers over the years and their resemblance is striking. Seriously though, does Christie age at all? Now in her 60’s, we can’t believe how amazing she looks and her daughter is definitely taking after her. Between those blue eyes and the grin that her mother has perfected over the years, this girl hit the genetic lottery. This year, the two of them graced the pages of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Sailor is not only modelling, but she’s also studying at The Parsons School of Design. “I grew up looking at these photos of my mom, never thinking that I would ever be able to do that,” Sailor confesses to PEOPLE. We don’t think that this beauty had anything to worry about — it looks like she’ll have a great career ahead of her.
7. Julianne Moore & Liv Freundlich
Another celebrity child is breaking into the industry and this time it is Julianne Moore’s daughter Liv. She has decided to pursue a modelling career and her mother stands behind her decision. Liv is only 15 and has already walked the runway for J. Crew during New York Fashion Week. Julianne isn’t worried about her daughter in the modelling industry because she feels like she has a firm grasp on what is real. “When she was really little, she said, ‘You know mommy, some people get really scared when they watch movies, but I don’t because I know that they’ve made everything up.’ She always understood the concept of illusion and I think she understands that with fashion as well.”
6. Madonna And Lourdes Leon
While she might not be blonde like her mother, Lourdes did inherit Madonna’s badass, independent spirit. These two look a lot alike, though Lourdes has decided not to become an iconic singer like her mother. She has dabbled in her mother’s clothing line, Material Girl since the young age of 13. She even followed in her mom’s footsteps and went off to study at the University of Michigan. When her daughter left, during a guest appearance, Madonna admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that she was devastated. “I fell into the deepest depression. And I’m always so happy when she calls me and she says, ‘Mommy, I miss you,’ or, ‘I need you to rub my head.’”
5. Goldie Hawn And Kate Hudson
This golden mother-daughter duo is still lighting up Hollywood. Kate Hudson hit the scene in Almost Famous many moons ago and has been following in her mother’s footsteps ever since. Kate hasn’t always believed that she looked anything like her mother, but these days, she is proud of the idea that they have similarities. “The relationship between mother and daughter is very complex, and to be able to talk about the importance of the relationship is something that I look forward to,” Kate explained to the Associated Press. “It really informed such a huge part of who I am and the confidence that I have as a woman. It really does come from the closeness that I have with mommy. Now, as I get questions about mom, it’s so much deeper and so much more complex that I look forward to sharing that more and more with people.”
4. Gwyneth Paltrow And Apple Martin
Both have unusual names, but they are very similar in appearance. Apple has that beautiful but unusual look to her that has made many models famous. The two like to post cute photos together on Instagram; this one is a great example of just that. Paltrow will often call her daughter “little beauty,” and it’s pretty obvious that the two are related. As for her killer dance moves and confidence on stage, let’s just say the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Her father, Chris Martin, loves the fact that she’s dancing right now. And judging by Paltrow’s many Instagram posts of her daughter and her dance mates, it looks like this girl has some serious talent. She often visits her father at his concerts and we can’t help but be jealous! How cool would that be? The girl has a pretty awesome gene pool if you ask us.
3. Susan Sarandon And Eva Amurri Martino
Eva is another celebrity child that grew up wanting to be an actress just like her mother. The resemblance between the two is truly uncanny! Both of them have fiery red hair and that rare sex appeal that is hard to come by in Hollywood; it’s like they don’t even have to try. The two are incredibly close, so much so that they even once took pole dancing classes together! The two have also had the opportunity to work together. They were both on the set of Friends and even worked together on a few movies like The Banger Sisters and That’s My Boy. It will be interesting to see if Eva will eventually make as big as her mother.
2. Lori Loughlin And Isabella And Olivia Giannulli
Raising two teenage daughters can’t be an easy task for Lori, but she seems to be pulling it off flawlessly. She has raised two beautiful girls who look identical to her. She has taken breaks from Hollywood throughout her career and we have to guess it’s because she has stated that parenting is her number one priority. “I’d like to think I’m somewhat their friend, but more importantly, I am their mother and a guiding force,” the actress told PEOPLE. Her daughter Olivia is a Vlogger on YouTube and recently got in trouble for getting in a car accident while recording herself driving.
1. Lily-Rose Depp and Vanessa Paradis
It’s not surprising that Lily-Rose is following in the footsteps of her model mother. With having two huge celebrity parents, it can be hard to have a normal life. Her father is Johnny Depp and her mother is a famous French model. She was born in Paris, which is just about as glamorous as it sounds. Between her mother’s lifelong experience as a model and her striking features, it’s no wonder Lily-Rose spends a lot of time strutting down the runway and modelling for companies such as Chanel. And as if that’s not enough, this busy gal is also dabbling into acting with an upcoming comedy-horror movie. She’ll be gracing the big screen alongside Kevin Smith and Genesis Rodriguez in Moose Jaws.
