What could be better than one Reese Witherspoon?! Two, of course! The famed actress took to Instagram on Monday, Aug. 13 to share a photo of her lookalike body double — and we seriously cannot look past the resemblance.
The 42-year-old captioned the short video clip and selfie of the two: “Meet Marilee! She has been my double in 5 movies and now she is helping out on #BigLittleLies! Don’t we look alike?! ?” Reese also took to Instagram stories to share that she met Marilee in 2003 on the set of Legally Blonde 2. Well, we think they look so much alike — and so do her 14 million Instagram followers!
“Wow!! It has been said we all have a double somewhere out there and it’s pretty cool you found yours and have the blessing to be able to work with her,” one fan wrote. Another added, “Just one of you is enough beauty for the soar eye but two… ladies you’re beautiful!” One more commented, “This is crazy! Same nose, cheekbones, chin etc… love it!”
However, Marilee isn’t the only person in Reese’s life who looks just like her. Everyone knows how much her daughter, Ava Phillippe, resembles her famous mama.
In fact, Ava, 18, has admitted in the past that people have confused the two in real life. “People come up to her [all the time]. We were at a premiere and they were congratulating her on her performance,” Ava once revealed. “She’s like, ‘I’m not in the movie!'”
And Reese agrees that the two are basically twins. “I do see the resemblance. She’s a beautiful person inside and out. She’s just a good soul. I’m not sure what she thinks. I’m just ‘Mom’ to her,” she once said. “I really have a rich, personal relationship with my daughter. I have a really great career, and it’s nice to be able to share it with my kids.” We wonder if they’ve met Marilee…
