My daughter often mistaken for me: Reese Witherspoon

Los Angeles: Actress Reese Witherspoon has said people often confuse her daughter, Ava Phillippe with her.

The 40-year-old actress, who arrived with Ava on the premiere of “Big Little Lies” says the mother-daughter duo have often been mistaken for each other, reported E! News.

“People come up to her (all the time). We were at a premiere and they were congratulating her on her performance. She’s like, ‘I’m not in the movie’,” Witherspoon said.

After the show, the 17-year-old shared a picture with her mother, where she congratulated the team for the HBO TV series.

She wrote, “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”

Witherspoon admitted Ava doesn’t want to do become an actress but she is “very supportive, and I love that she’s here to help me”.
