Normally when we get told we look like our parents, it's a toss up whether we see that as a compliment or not. If our parents were world-famous celebrities who were renowned for how beautiful they are, it would probably lean more towards compliment 100% of the time.

But that doesn't mean that every child of every celebrity agrees with the people who tell them that they're a spitting image of their parents, including some of the most famous lookalikes in celebrity family history.

There are some celebrities with powerful genes, but almost none rival Reese Witherspoon.

Reese and her daughter Ava are INFAMOUSLY similar, and almost always top the conversations when people are talking about celebrity kids that look like their parents.

And I mean, just look at them. If we ever wanted to do a shot-for-shot remake of Legally Blonde, we could slide Ava right in and nobody would be able to tell the difference.

Apparently, the only people who DON'T see the resemblance are Reese and Ava themselves.

On a recent appearance on Today, after host Jenna Bush Hager saw a photo of 23-year-old Ava and exclaimed, “Wait, y'all are twins!” Reese dropped this bomb.

"She and I don't see it that much."

Wait, WHAT?

Obviously, fans are flabbergasted by this reveal.

"Maybe she's Legally Blind," one fan joked, while another wrote, "She wild for that. Someone once said Reese hit Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V and that's the perfect explanation."

But some people actually agreed with Reese.

A lot of fans pointed out that they thought Ava looked more like her dad, Ryan Phillipe.

"These people see the daughter with blonde straight hair automatically think she looks like Reese. She's definitely the spitting image of Ryan Phillippe, look at the shape of eyes, the nose, cheeks, the chin is more Reese, not as much point," one fan tweeted.

What do you think? Do you think they're twins, or is Ava more like her dad? Let us know in the comments!
