10 Celebrity Mother-Daughter Duos Who Are Practically Twins
The genetic lottery is on fire! We're (as patiently as possible) counting down the days until the arrivals of the Clooney and Carter—aka Beyoncé—twins. Long before we could ever fathom eternal bachelor George Clooney settling down and becoming a father, many of Hollywood’s leading ladies and their partners brought some of the most beautiful offspring into our world. Here, 10 stunning mother-daughter duos who could pass as twins.
Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise
Suri Cruise has some of the best genes in Hollywood (we’re talking about you, Tom Cruise), but there is no denying she takes after her mother, Katie Holmes. This Joey Potter mini-me has an uncanny resemblance to her mama. Now, just need to find a bite-size Pacey.
Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber
Leave it to Cindy Crawford and hubby Rande Gerber to produce a child that possesses all of their best qualities. Today, Kaia Gerber is putting those super genes to work and embarking on a major modeling career of her own. Like mother, like daughter.
Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson
Dakota Johnson recently joined mom Melanie Griffith in the Hollywood spotlight for her portrayal of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptations of E.L. James’s gripping (literally) Fifty Shades trilogy. Although science has yet to prove sex appeal is genetic, the Griffith/Johnson mother and daughter make for an excellent case.
Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp
Lily-Rose Depp is following in the footsteps of her mother, Vanessa Paradis, as the newest Chanel muse, and we can see why. It seems the brand’s taste in models hasn’t changed a bit. Quelle belle mère et fille!
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson’s mother-daughter relationship is one of the best things to happen to Hollywood, in our humble opinion. A Death Becomes Her reboot starring Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep...oops, we mean Kate Hudson and Grace Gummer. But seriously, can that happen, please?
Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe
Can you say TWINS? Reese Witherspoon’s daughter Ava Phillippe couldn’t look more like her mom if she wanted to. Need an activity to keep your children occupied in a long car ride? Dare them to definitively point out who is Ava and who is Reese in a set of three different photos. In the words of Chloe Mackenzie, watch out, WOMAN.
Zoe Kravitz and Lisa Bonet
It is no secret Zoe Kravitz has some of the best genes in Hollywood. Little-known rock-star dad that goes by the name of Lenny Kravitz? Check. Mother who was one of the original Huxtable family members and just so happens to be wildly beautiful? Check. Inheriting Lisa Bonet’s killer looks and style? Publishers Clearing House.
Meryl Streep and The Gummer Girls
Meryl Streep has the most epic résumé, countless Oscar nods and three gorgeous daughters, aka legitimate mini-Meryls: Grace, Louisa and Mamie Gummer.
Christie Brinkley and Sailor Brinkley
Christie and daughter Sailor Brinkley are one fierce mother-daughter duo. An OG smizer, Christie bestowed her daughter doppelgänger, Sailor, with her vast modeling industry knowledge and it shows. She even appeared alongside mom and older sister Alexa Ray Joel, striking a pose like a boss, on this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition issue.
Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade Giannulli
Aunt Becky is making a resurgence on Netflix’s Fuller House reboot, but it’s actually been 22 years since the Tanner gang was originally all under the same roof. Over those 22 years a lot has changed, and we’re not just talking about the Olsen twins. Cue the beautiful Olivia Jade Giannulli, Lori Loughlin’s twin sister, we mean youngest daughter and YouTube star. That resemblance...have mercy!
