Many women end up looking like their mothers as they age, but when your mom is an actress, model, or pop star you definitely have the edge. See how these celebrity moms and their mini-mes compare. For most people, the early teenage years are prime for an awkward phase — but not, apparently, if your mom is one of the world’s most iconic supermodels. At 14, Kaia Gerber is the spitting image of mom Cindy Crawford; all she’s missing is that famous mole.

Funny ladies Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson aren’t just close because they’re both actresses: As Hudson told Pop Sugar, “The truth is, I’m the only girl! There are a lot of boys in our family. We need that energy with each other. I pretty much talk to her every day.”

Reese Witherpoon’s 16-year-old daughter, Ava Phillippe, may share her mom’s looks — but that doesn’t mean she approves of all of her mom’s fashion choices. Witherspoon told Us Weekly, “She’s so much cooler than I am! She’s very cutting-edge and she knows a lot about fashion and she has her own sense of style, which is amazing. We try to kind of confer about new styles: She tells me whether or not I can wear things.”

Beyonce’s 4-year-old daughter Blue Ivy has already gotten her first glimpses of stardom, from joining her parents onstage at the MTV VMAs in 2014 to accompanying Queen Bey to rehearsals for her Formation tour. Beyonce isn’t reserved about how close she and Blue Ivy are: “She’s my homey, my best friend,” the singer told Vogue.

Meryl Streep and her oldest daughter, actress Mamie Gummer, put their family resemblance to use playing mother and daughter in last year’s Ricki and the Flash. Gummer’s role as a woman comforted by her estranged mom after her husband leaves her was an emotional one, but she told the Telegraph of acting opposite Streep, “I don’t know if I could have done it with anyone else.”

Mad Max: Fury Road actress and musician Zoe Kravitz (she fronts the band Lolawolf) may take after both her famous parents when it comes to her professional life — and her fashion sense— but her looks are straight from her mom, Lisa Bonet.

The caption on this Instagram photo of Rumer Willis with her mom, Demi Moore, in matching glasses, jumpsuits, and hairstyles pretty much says it all: “That moment when you realize you actually are becoming your mother #twinning #imnotmad”.

Julianne Moore and her daughter, Liv Freundlich, share the actress’s trademark red hair and bright smile, but when Town & Country asked Moore if she sees other similarities between her daughter and herself at age 14, she was quick to answer: “No, not at all. She’s just her own person.”
