Reese Witherspoon posted this Instagram photo and it’s making us do SUCH a double take.

Check out her daughter, Ava – she’s the total spit of her dad, Ryan Phillippe. We feel really, really old now because we can totally remember when Reese and Ryan made Cruel Intentions together – and had Ava around the same time.

And that was 16 years ago. REALLY? Yes, really.


The pair later split after seven years of marriage, but not before they had a son called Deacon.

Reese was getting ready for the premiere of Hot Pursuit with Ava when she posted this photo. And don’t they look super close? Aww.

Good genes, that's all we're saying

Ava looks like Reese for sure – but way more like her dad, Ryan. She’s certainly got good DNA, that’s for sure.

Just to make ourselves feel even more ancient, 1999 was also when were worrying about the millennium bug, using dial-up internet and listening to Sugar Ray. Nice.

We’re definitely getting Cruel Intentions out this weekend, by the way. WHAT A FILM. And if you don’t believe us that Ava Phillippe looks just like her dad, there’s your proof.
