However, there were those who thought she actually more closely resembled her dad, Witherspoon’s ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, especially those who saw the photo Ava shared with her Instagram fans.

In the photo, she’s seen standing next to her Oscar winning mom, who she gushes about in the caption, writing, “So proud of my awesome mama and her passion for this project. It is so nice to see these wonderful, talented women in roles just as dynamic as they are. #biglittlelies

Ryan and Ava met back in the late nineties while filming the cult teen drama, ‘Cruel Intentions.’

The couple married and had Ava and son Deacon before divorcing in 2008. Below is a photo from their younger years, where you can see that Ava’a resemblance to both parents is uncanny.
