These Celebrity Moms Look Younger Than Their Famous Daughters

Some celebrities must have exclusive access to the fountain of youth because they never seem to age! This especially applies to the female celebs out there. The actresses, models, and singers that we grew up with have since had kids of their own who are now stars of the new generation. When they’re pictured together, you’ll see how much these young stars look like their moms! Wait until you see the Grunge Queen whose daughter is now her mini-me!

Leslie Mann may be almost 50, but you wouldn’t be able to tell! When standing next to her daughters, the actress could pass for one of their peers. It’s hard to believe that Maude (left) is 20 and Iris (center) is 15.

Iris is following in her mother’s footsteps, having had a recurring role on Netflix’s Love, produced by her dad. Meanwhile, Maude made her directorial debut with a short film, Don’t Mind Alice. Mann reportedly got in a little trouble with her eldest after spilling the beans about Maude’s plans to drop out of college.

Vanessa Paradis + Lily-Rose Depp

French chanteuse Vanessa Paradis rose to state-side prominence in the late ’90s from her relationship with actor Johnny Depp. Out of that relationship came their daughter, Lily-Rose, who was born in 1999. Almost 20 years later, Lily-Rose has grown up to look like she could be Paradis’s younger sister!

Lily-Rose has taken after both of her parents. She has acted in films Tusk, Yoga Hosers, The Dancer, and Planetarium. She has also been chosen to represent Chanel’s beauty line, just like her mother, who has modeled for Chanel since the early ’90s.

Courtney Love + Frances Bean Cobain

Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain could pass as sisters in this photo! Back in 1992, Love and Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain welcomed their daughter into the world. After Cobain’s death, Frances’s early life was not without its drama. Love infamously struggled with addiction throughout the ’90s and even had custody of Frances taken away from her at some points.

These days, things are looking better for Love and her daughter. Frances, now 25, recently announced her second sober birthday on social media. You can probably bet that Mama Courtney was there to support her along the way.

Courteney Cox + Coco Arquette

Courteney Cox probably won’t age for another 20 years, if that. Just look at her now! It’s been nearly 14 years since Friends went off the air and she still looks like Monica Gellar stuck in time. This is Cox with her daughter Coco Arquette, who was born in 2004.

Though Coco is just 14 years old, she’s starting to come into more mature facial features. We wouldn’t be surprised if she started looking exactly like her mother in a couple of years! By then, people will mistake Cox for Coco’s older sister.

Scarlett Johansson + Melanie Sloan

It must be pretty intimidating to have to sit next to someone who was once named “the most beautiful woman in the world,” unless of course, you’re that person’s mother! Though Scarlett Johansson’s mom is no household name, it’s a wonder why Melanie Sloan isn’t more famous!

Sloan, who is a producer according to some reports, gave birth to Johansson in 1984. That makes the Lost in Translation actress 33 today, but her mother doesn’t even look ten years older than that! It’s obvious where ScarJo got her bombshell looks from now.

Madonna + Lourdes Leon

Here is Madonna with her daughter Lourdes Leon, who she affectionally refers to as “Lola.” Madonna had Lourdes in 1996 and as you can see, the time has just flown by! Madonna is almost 60 but looks like the mature older sister of Lourdes, who is nearly 22.

Madonna shocked fans when she shared this lovely photo, mostly because of Lourdes’s unshaven armpit. But the pop star is known to be an advocate for healthy, hairy underarms. Back in 2014, she posted a photo of her own hairy underarms with the caption, “Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!!”

Jada Pinkett-Smith + Willow Smith

Jada Pinkett-Smith welcomed daughter Willow into the world back in 2000. Willow Smith is barely about to turn 18 years old, and she’s already forged a successful music career outside of her parents’ shadow.

Jada recently announced her new Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, which she will do with her daughter and her own mother, Adrienne. Jada told People, “Red Table Talk is about raw truth, love and deep passion. My mother is old school, Willow is new school, and I find myself right in the middle.”

Cindy Crawford + Kaia Gerber

Supermodel Cindy Crawford’s daughter, Kaia Gerber, wasn’t even born until 2001! At 16 years old, Kaia has already become a famous model just like her mother. Everyone is always shocked to see shots from Kaia’s modeling career since she looks just like Crawford from early in her career.

In February 2018, Crawford appeared in InStyle in a sexy shoot that paid homage to Versace, who she modeled for in the ’90s. The supermodel posted one photo of her and a half-naked man and Kaia, being a typical teenage daughter, commented: “where’s dad?”

Lisa Bonet + Zoe Kravitz

When Zoe Kravitz and her mother Lisa Bonet are pictured together, people always do a double take. Kravitz is a carbon copy of her mother, and if you saw them on the street without knowing who they were, you might think they were sisters!

Like her mother, Kravitz has become an actress in her own right, but the Big Little Lies player has also forayed into music like her father, Lenny. While Bonet has already hit 50 and Zoe is almost 30, the mother and daughter still look like they’re in their 20s. Considering how ageless they appear now, this might not change for a long time.

Demi Moore + Rumer Willis

Rumer Willis is the first-born daughter of Demi Moore. As you can see here, Willis has grown up to look just like her mother! The younger of the pair has followed in both of her parent’s footsteps and become an actress and has a recurring role on Fox’s Empire.

In 2017, both mother and daughter got to act together when Moore had a guest role on the show. Willis told ET, “I love it, we have a great time. Honestly, even though we pretty much live… 10 maybe 15 minutes away from each other in L.A., with your schedules, you sometimes don’t end up getting to spend the quality time with each other.”

Reese Witherspoon + Ava Phillippe

Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe are one mother-daughter pair that always makes jaws drop when they’re pictured together. Phillippe recently is becoming known in her own right and since she’s been in the spotlight, people can’t help but notice the uncanny resemblance she has to her mother.

Though she hasn’t become an actress like her mom (yet), Phillippe has entered the world of modeling and was featured in Rodarte’s Fall/Winter 2018 lookbook. Witherspoon puts her full support behind her daughter’s ambitions and has made Philippe the face of her clothing line, Draper James.

Yolanda Hadid + Gigi And Bella Hadid

Yolanda Hadid was a model before she became known for starring in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but her daughters, Gigi and Bella, are arguably more famous than she is now.

At ages 23 and 21, Gigi and Bella have already become two of the highest paid models in the world. They couldn’t have done it without their mother’s wise words. Yolanda told News Corp Australia, “My basic advice has always been that there are 100 girls out there who are as beautiful as you are, or maybe more beautiful, that deserve success as much as you do, so how are you going to set yourself apart?”

Peggy Lipton + Rashida Jones

Can you believe that that’s Rashida Jones’s mom? The woman on the right is 71-year-old actress Peggy Lipton, who had Jones back in 1976. Lipton rose to prominence in The Mod Squad but is also remembered for her role on Twin Peaks.

Jones, of course, is remembered as the lovely Ann Perkins from Parks and Recreation, but she currently stars in her own TBS show, Angie Tribeca. In 2017, Lipton guest starred in the season finale of Angie Tribeca as Tribeca’s mom, so the role probably wasn’t too hard to get into.

Christie Brinkley + Alexa Joel And Sailor Brinkley-Cook

Christie Brinkley ruled the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue back in the late ’70s. This was just before she had her first-born, Alexa Ray Joel (center), in 1985. Her youngest, Sailor Lee Brinkley-Cook (right), was born in 1998.

Brinkley is another famous mom who is aging gracefully as she does not look much older than her daughters. In 2017, she returned to the SI Swimsuit Issue, but that time she did it alongside Alexa and Sailor. While Sailor seems to be following her mother’s career, Alexa has already become a singer-songwriter like her father, Billy Joel.

Tish Cyrus + Brandi, Miley, And Noah Cyrus

Look at this picture of the Cyrus family women. Mom Tish certainly blends in with her daughters. In case you can’t tell, she’s the one second from the left, in between Miley and Noah.

Tish is 50 years old but doesn’t look like that at all! She certainly doesn’t look like she’s had five kids (her two other sons are not pictured). While Miley obviously has had the most prolific career in the family, the youngest, Noah, is forging her own singing career. Tish and the eldest, Brandi, star together on Bravo’s Cyrus vs. Cyrus: Design and Conquer.

Julianne Moore + Liv Freundlich

Julianne Moore’s daughter is 16-year-old Liv Freundlich. It’s crazy to think that in this photo, the two are 42 years apart! Moore has taken Liv out to events since she was a young girl, but as time wears on, Liv is starting to look more like her mother!

But that doesn’t mean that they are one and the same. Moore has told Huffington Post, “She’s just her own person. What’s amazing is how quickly that happens. My mother said… ‘You are who you are. You aren’t any different from the day you were born.’ I remembered that distinctly when my kids were born because they came with very specific temperaments.”

Goldie Hawn + Kate Hudson

1970s bombshell Goldie Hawn had actress Kate Hudson in 1979. Hudson is creeping up on 40 while Hawn is now in her 70s, but you wouldn’t even guess that looking at them today!

Hudson told People in 2018, “I feel lucky, blessed that I have a role model that I can call mom… I think one of the things that my mom has taught me is to find compassion in everything I do.” Hawn added, “Kate has taught me a lot… she is extremely truthful. I think it’s vitally important to take the truth as much as you don’t want it.”

Melanie Griffith + Dakota Johnson

Actress Dakota Johnson and her mother Melanie Griffith don’t look 32 years apart, but that’s how big their age gap is! Griffith had Dakota back in 1989 after briefly reconciling with Dakota’s father.

The Fifty Shades actress has followed her mother’s career blueprint in becoming an actress. It seems like just yesterday when Dakota was a Miss Golden Globe back in 2006! That year, she became a second-generation Miss Golden Globe, since Griffith was one herself back in 1975.

Andie MacDowell + Rainey Qualley

We don’t see a lot of Andie MacDowell in the headlines these days, but if you look her up, you’ll notice that she looks just as youthful as she did when she was in Sex, Lies, and Videotape.

This is MacDowell with her daughter, Rainey Qualley, who she had in 1990. MacDowell has made a point to raise her children far from Hollywood. Rainey has told Town & Country, “For a long time my mother wouldn’t let me watch her movies, the grown-up ones at least… I just like seeing her then, because I never knew her when she was younger. “

Jane Seymour + Katherine Flynn

English actress Jane Seymour is known for her roles in the James Bond films. In 1982, she welcomed a daughter, Katherine Flynn. Flynn is now 36 old and in this photo, Seymour looks to be about the same age even though she’s almost twice that!

Flynn has become an actress like her mother, known for roles in A Royal Christmas and Once Upon a Time in Venice. As for Seymour these days, she recently posed in Playboy for the third time, becoming the oldest woman photographed for the magazine at age 67.
