Hollywood is actually a pretty small industry that can turn into a family business for many celebrities. There are many celebrity kids that use their famous names and looks in order to break into the modeling and entertainment industry.
Some of these famous kids made headlines for looking so similar to their parents. Others have flown under the radar. So which ones look exactly like their famous moms and dads? Here are 15 celebrity kids who are spitting images of their famous parents.
1. Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe starred in the 1999 movie, Cruel Intentions, together and fell in love. They married later that year and had two children together before getting divorced in 2007. Their daughter Ava looks so much like her Oscar-winning mother that she has made headlines for it.
Phillippe joked about the public’s reaction to Ava and Reese’s similarities. “I mean, it’s weird, because isn’t that obvious?” he asked, according to ET. “Who else are they going to look like, you know? I always find that such a weird thing, like, [Ava] looks exactly like her mother, who else is she going to look like? It’s an odd thing that people fixate on that.”
The mother also admits that she notices their likeness. “I do see the resemblance,” she told Vanity Fair. “She’s a beautiful person inside and out. She’s just a good soul. I’m not sure what she thinks. I’m just ‘Mom’ to her. We’re happy to share this wonderful experience. I really have a rich, personal relationship with my daughter. I have a really great career, and it’s nice to be able to share it with my kids.”
2. Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber had two children together — one of which is basically Crawford’s twin!
Kaia Gerber has her looks, so it’s not that surprising that she is also in the modeling industry. All she is missing is her mother’s iconic mole.
3. Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross
The iconic singer is known for her many songs and rocking big hair. Her daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, might not have followed her musical footsteps, but she also rocks big hair and acts.
Diana Ross also still looks amazing, so they are basically twins.
4. Zoe Kravitz and Lisa Bonet
Zoe Kravitz has started her own acting career. It’s different from her mother’s sitcom beginnings, but people can’t help but notice how much the two look alike.
Of course, Zoe also inherited her parents’ cool factor, which seems very unfair.
5. Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer
Meryl Streep is showing no signs of stopping when it comes to dominating the acting industry. Now her daughters, Mamie and Grace, are following in her footsteps.
They both look very similar to their mother, but we couldn’t get over Mamie and Meryl wearing the same glasses.
6. Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner
It’s tough to say which similarities between the mother and daughter are from genes or procedures. Either way, they both look great and very alike. Kris Jenner has shown time and time again where her daughters get their looks from.
7. Bette Midler and Sophie von Haselberg
The beautiful icon is one of a kind in the entertainment industry. However, many fans probably don’t know that her daughter is a spitting image of her.
Sophie’s father is Martin von Haselberg, but she’s basically all Bette Midler. She also acts.
8. Heather Locklear and Ava Sambora
The Melrose Place star was one of the most iconic blondes on television. You may not have seen her around for some time, but she still looks the same.
Her daughter, Ava, also looks pretty similar to her, so it’s not that surprising that she is modeling too.
9. Christie and Sailor Brinkley
The supermodel still looks great, and her daughter is now following her footsteps by modeling. Sailor looks just like her mother, so chances are she will do well.
Christie Brinkley recently posed with both her daughters, Sailor and Alexa Ray Joel, for Sports Illustrated.
10. Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson has been able to forge her own acting career through many romantic comedies. But it’s hard to forget her famous mother, given she has her face.
Goldie Hawn and her daughter share the same smile and bubbly personality.
11. Ice Cube and O’Shea Jackson Jr.
Straight Outta Compton got a lot of media attention not only for its story, but because O’Shea Jackson Jr. played his own father. He did a great job, and it definitely helps that he looks exactly like his father. The younger actor will probably have a great career.
12. Julianne Moore and Liv Freundlich
The Academy Award winner has a daughter who also looks like her. Liv Freundlich isn’t going down the acting road, but she is among the many celebrity children who are modeling.
13. JAY-Z and Blue Ivy
Blue Ivy obviously has taken on her parents’ sense of style and musical talent. Haven’t you heard her freestyle? But the most obvious thing she took was her father’s face.
Perhaps she will continue down the hip-hop road and give him a run for his money.
14. Tish and Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus has been the focus of many articles for her outrageous and unique outfits. But many overlook how much she resembles her mother, Tish Cyrus.
The two look exactly alike, especially when the young star rocks a more toned-down look.
15. Stephen and Riley Curry
The basketball player’s family has gotten a lot of media attention, mostly because of his adorable daughter with Aisha Curry. Riley Curry stole the show once she started sitting in on her dad’s interviews with the press.
She’s adorable and looks a lot like her father.
