Famous Actors Whose Kids Look Exactly Like Them

Monica June 8, 2023

Resembling a parent can go one of two ways. We either love looking like them or want to look as different than them as physically possible. It could also go either way if you’re the parent and you have kids. Either way, we have zero control and don’t have a choice in the matter, and if we end up looking like our parents or our kids look like us, that’s up to the gene pool. But we regular people aren’t the only ones who have a striking resemblance to our kids or parents.

Actors do, too. You might not have known there are almost exact replicas of Uma Thurman, Tom Hanks, Kim Kardashian, and Kate Moss walking around this planet. These celebs have little mini-me’s to continue with their legacy, even if they might not have followed in their acting or modeling footsteps.


Kate Beckinsale and Lily Mo Sheen

There’s never been a more accurate way to say, “like mother like daughter.” Kate Beckinsale and her daughter Lily Mo Sheen look exactly like each other. Now that Lily is grown up, she looks more like her mother than ever before. Kate even plays around with the resemblance, and sends Lily texts like, ” ‘I do see it. Yeah, I do. Sometimes I’ll send her a text saying, ‘Get your face!’ ‘She’s like a better version. She’s got something that I don’t.” She’s already starred in several movies and seems to be following in her mother’s footsteps. If she’s as successful as her mother, she’ll be one of several actors hitting the big screen (via Daily Mail).


Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp

Lily-Rose Depp is the spitting image of her mom, Vanessa Paradis. She’s as successful as an actress as her father, Johnny Depp, and has also modeled in the past. Lil-Rose and her mother share an incredible bond, and if you saw photos of Vanessa when she was younger, you’d think they were the same person. When she was speaking about her mother in an interview, she said, “My mum is a trailblazer, truly. She’s taught me a lot about self-confidence.” She’s just one of those kids who followed in her parent’s footsteps (via Yahoo).


Barbra Streisand and Jason Gould

Famous idol Barbra Streisand passed along her sharp chin and nose to her son Jason Gould. He’s a singer and famous actor that followed in his mother’s footsteps. Even though he inherited her looks, he also inherited her talent and acting skills. He began singing on stage with his mom nearly a decade ago, and several years ago he said, “I honestly didn’t know if I could do it. I had never performed in front of anybody so going from zero to like 18,000 people was quite a challenge.” Thanks to his mom, he was able to overcome this fear (via People).


Clint and Scott Eastwood

Believe it or not, Clint Eastwood has eight kids but only one truly resembles him, and that’s his son Scott. The Hollywood star passed on his handsome genes to his son. The resemblance is remarkable, and Scott followed in his father’s acting footsteps as well. People believe he looks more like his twin than his son. If you saw the two wandering down the street together, you might need to do a double-take (via Country Living).


Robin Wright and Dylan Penn

This mother-daughter duo shares the same dirty blonde hair, piercing blue eyes, and a strong nose. In their photos, the two practically look identical. It’s especially striking when they wear similar dresses and stand side-by-side. Identical twins, anyone (via Insider)?


Jude and Raff Law

Jude Law also has a huge family as a father to six kids. But only one of his kids truly resembles him, and it’s his son Rafferty, or ‘Raff’ for short. He has curly hair and similar facial features that make it seem like you’re looking at a younger Jude Law. In an interview, Raff called his father his best mate. He said, “He and I have always been so close. Like any father and son, growing up I looked up to my dad a lot. I’ve always liked the way he dresses – he loves trainers, so that got me into trainers from a young age. He likes good music and that got me into the same.” He never tries to compare himself to his dad and continues to try to be himself and pave his own path (via US Weekly).

Yolanda and Gigi Hadid

Yolanda passed down her gorgeous Dutch looks to her oldest daughter, Gigi. In modeling throwbacks especially, the two look exactly alike. With her baby face, golden locks, and strong brows, the two look eerily similar, especially in certain photos taken at the right angle. If the two weren’t mother-daughter and were trying to model at the same time, Gigi would certainly give Yolanda a run for her money (via Style Caster).


Uma Thurman and Luna Thurman-Busson

With three kids in her family, you’d think they’d all resemble the beautiful actress Uma Thurman. But only two are starkly similar to her. Her youngest daughter Luna Thurman-Busson. Even photos of Uma from the 1980s and recent photos of her mother make it seem like they’re the same person. Her ten-year-old daughter is a miniature version of her. Even her oldest daughter Maya Hawke also looks like Uma, especially during the filming of Stranger Things (via Yahoo).


Blythe Danner, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Apple Martin

If anyone’s going to inherit her mother’s looks, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow. She has her mother’s flawless skin, eyes, and cheekbones. Even her daughter Apple Martin inherited the family’s genes. All of them look alike, and it’s adorable. The women are certainly triplet-ing it. Paltrow described the way to beauty as to “actually really like and love yourself, so you sort of internally feel beautiful.” Her mother, Danner, said, “I think I felt prettiest at 50, and maybe because of what you just said.” From our perspective, they all look incredibly beautiful (via Yahoo).

Reese Witherspoon and Ava Elizabeth Philippe

These two are as similar in appearance as sisters. Their photos are plastered all over social media, and people can barely believe that Ava’s photos are not simply a younger Reese.
