Reese Witherspoon doesn't have to look far for a perfect stunt double.

In a photo posted on Instagram by Reese, her 16-year-old daughter, Ava Phillippe, could easily pass for her mother circa 1991, the year Reese was making her big-screen debut in The Man in the Moon.

The 39-year-old Oscar winner posted the split of Ava as a child and as a teenager in honor of Ava's birthday on Sept. 9.

"Wow! My sweet girl turns 16 today!" Reese wrote. "I am so blessed to have such a kind, compassionate, brilliant, artistic, all-around wonderful daughter who makes me a better person every day. I love you, @avaphillippe."

Ava is the eldest of Reese and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe's two children. They also share a son, Deacon, 11.

The lookalike mother-daughter duo have been posting several cute pics of them together lately. In one taken ahead of the Hot Pursuit premiere in April, Ava is seen rocking blue hair and a white lace dress.

Months later, during a trip to Italy in June, Ava opted for white lace again, but this time, went with her natural blonde hair color while posing with her mother and legendary designer Valentino.
