20 Celebs Who Look JUST Like Their Famous Parents
by Morgan DeBoest
Whether it’s your crazy hair, dimples, or nose, people love to point out resemblances to one of your parents. And in Hollywood, the land of the good-looking, that’s a huge compliment. We’ve rounded up 20 celebrity parents and children that look so alike it’s uncanny. Click through to see the similarities!
Tom Hanks & Colin Hanks
Beloved actor (Forrest Gump, Big, and You’ve Got Mail) and filmmaker (Band of Brothers, Bridge of Spies) Tom Hanks was obviously going to have incredibly talented offspring. His oldest son Colin has had major roles in Dexter and Fargo, but who could’ve expected they’d look so much alike?
Susan Sarandon & Eva Amurri
Academy Award– and BAFTA Award–winner Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise, Stepmom) looks amazing at age 69—and her daughter, Eva Amurri, is just as beautiful. Also an actress (That’s My Boy, The Education of Charlie Banks), Amurri can only hope to be so lucky.
Meryl Streep & Mamie Gummer
Oh, what we wouldn’t give to be the daughter of queen Meryl Streep for a day. Streep has four children, including Mamie Gummer. Gummer starred in “Emily Owens, M.D.,” has a recurring role on “The Good Wife,” and looks just like her stunning mother. The two starred in the 2015 film Ricki and the Flash.
Lisa Bonet & Zoë Kravitz
You recognize Lisa Bonet from her days on “The Cosby Show” as Denise Huxtable-Kendall. She was married to Lenny Kravitz from 1987 to 1993, and they had one daughter—actress (Divergent, X-Men, Mad Max: Fury Road), singer, and model Zoë Kravitz. Can you see the resemblance?
Donald Sutherland & Kiefer Sutherland
Canadian actor Donald Sutherland most recently portrayed President Snow in the Hunger Games movies. His son, Kiefer, famously starred in Fox thriller “24.” Don’t they look alike?
George Harrison & Dhani Harrison
George Harrison, lead guitarist of The Beatles, had one son with his second wife, Olivia Harrison, who is the spitting image of his dad! Dhani is a musician and singer-songwriter as well. (And yes, he sometimes covers his dad’s songs.)
Goldie Hawn & Kate Hudson
Golden girl Goldie Hawn (Death Becomes Her, The First Wives Club) and Kate Hudson (Almost Famous, How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, Wish I Was Here) could pass as sisters—they’re the spitting image of each other.
Jon Voight & Angelina Jolie
Academy Award–winner Jon Voight, whom you probably recognize from National Treasure, Varsity Blues, Mission Impossible, and Transformers, has the privilege of being father to incredible actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie. We can see the resemblance!
John Ritter & Jason Ritter
You’ll remember (or, at least, your mom will) actor John Ritter from the TV sitcom Three’s Company. His son Jason has had many supporting roles in TV and movies—from “Girls” to “Parenthood” to Freddy vs. Jason—and looks just like him.
Jayne Mansfield & Mariska Hagitay
Mariska Hargitay, aka Olivia Benson, is a household name on her own. But back in the day, mom Jayne Mansfield was a famous actress and model—she was one of the original Playboy Playmates! Don’t they look similar?
Will Smith & Jaden Smith
Fresh Prince of Bel Air star Will Smith has been called “the most popular actor in Hollywood.” And, of course, his family is über-talented, too—wife Jada is an incredible actress, and their offspring Jaden and Willow have had success in acting and music. We love how Jaden looks just like his dad!
Damon Wayans & Damon Wayans Jr.
This father-son duo shares a lot—talent and a name. Damon Wayans Sr. starred in and wrote for “My Wife and Kids,” and Damon Wayans Jr. is currently starring in “New Girl.”
Alan Thicke & Robin Thicke
Obviously, we all know Robin Thicke from his controversial 2013 song “Blurred Lines.” But he’s the spitting image of father Alan Thicke, who played Jason Seaver, the father on “Growing Pains.”
Kris Jenner & Kim Kardashian-West
Uma Thurman & Maya Thurman-Hawke
Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill star Uma Thurman looks as youthful as ever at age 45. Her daughter Maya Thurman-Hawke (whom she had with former spouse Ethan Hawke) is a gorgeous 16-year-old socialite who has even had the honor of walking the red carpet on Zac Posen’s arm.
Blythe Danner & Gwyneth Paltrow
Yes, Gwyn’s beauty, grace, and acting prowess had to come from somewhere. Mom Blythe Danner, who played Will’s mother on “Will and Grace” as well as Dina Byrnes in the Meet the Fockers movies, clearly passed along her good looks.
Reese Witherspoon & Ava Phillippe
Reese Witherspoon, star of Legally Blonde, Wild, and Cruel Intentions (where she met first husband Ryan Phillippe!), has one daughter, Ava Phillippe. Ava looks like a mini-Reese, and the two could honestly be taken for sisters. So jealous!
Demi Moore & Rumer Willis
Many lifetimes ago, Ghost and St. Elmo’s Fire star Demi Moore was married to Bruce Willis. The pair had three children, one of whom is actress and singer Rumer Willis, who appeared in Now & Then, Hostage, and The House Bunny. She could easily be mistaken for her glamorous mom!
Tina Knowles & Beyoncé
Fierce runs in this family! Tina Knowles got her start as a hairdresser and costume designer in Texas, which turned into managing Destiny’s Child (RIP) and daughter Beyoncé and Solange until 2011. Currently, she runs two clothing labels—House of Deréon and Miss Tina. And Beyoncé … well, she currently runs the world.
Minnie Riperton & Maya Rudolph
Comedian and actress (Bridesmaids, “SNL”) Maya Rudolph got her gorgeous looks and performing ability from mom Minnie Riperton, best known for her 1975 single “Lovin’ You.”
