Southern babe, blonde bombshell, and Hollywood heartthrob are just some of the titles that Reese Witherspoon has carried throughout her career. Titles she's open to sharing with her daughter/doppelganger Ava Elizabeth Phillipe. Over recent years, the two have flaunted their relationship, and rightly so.

We dive into the dynamics that make this mother-daughter relationship tick.

1. Comfortable On Camera

Like mother like daughter, so the saying should go in this case. Following in her mother's footsteps, Ava has found within herself the ability to be authentic and composed in front of a camera. Appearing in shows like Entertainment Tonight and Good Morning America and taking up modeling featuring in Rodarte's Fall 2018 collection, Ms. Witherspoon passed on her charming genetics to her young double.

Known for movies like This Means War and Legally Blonde, Reese has constantly shown her natural talent for gracing screens. Recently, she's been doing the same behind the camera, producing the series Big Little Lies. An interest that rubbed onto Ava, a passionate photographer who posts some of her outstanding pictures on her Instagram.

2. Two Peas In A Pod

Reese and Ava share more than just their looks. They also bear a mutual support system for each other. When Reese launched the Time's Up movement, Ava quickly shared the message on her platform—also taking to her Insta to celebrate her mother.

Reese has also shown support for her daughter, specifically in her modeling career, by naming Ava as the face of her fashion line Draper James. In addition, Ava has joined her mother on multiple red carpets and movie premieres.

3. Passion For Philanthropy

If there's one thing fans love about celebrities, it's the desire they have to make sure the voices of the people are heard. As previously mentioned, Reese Witherspoon launched Time's Up, which went hand in hand with the #MeToo movement to combat injustice against women.

Ava Elizabeth also uses her platform to propel the voices of her fans, taking part in #passtheplatform to spread the message for a world free of police brutality and racial injustice in the wake of what happened to George Floyd in 2020.

4. Love for The Written Word

Along with posts regarding social challenges, Ava has sprinkled in posts of phrases, poems, and excerpts from books that she reads, all with profound and valuable lessons on life, love, and art.

Presumably, she picked it up from her mother, an avid reader with her own book club, Reese's Book Club. There, she shares thoughts on books and selects a book with a woman at the center every month of the story.
