When Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon recently brought along her pretty daughter to the red-carpet premiere of her new HBO limited series, Big Little Lies, many people thought they were seeing double. Ava Phillippe, 17,  is the spitting image of her mom.

Ava’s sense of style has been evident during the recent occasions she had accompanied her mom to Hollywood premieres.In magazine interviews, Reese  proudly stated that her lookalike daughter is “a good soul” and that she, as mom, has a rich personal relationship with her.

Ava’s support for her mother’s endeavors speaks volumes about how much she respects and loves her. The mother and daughter duo attended the afterparty as well.

In her Instagram account, Ava later 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.”  Also spotted at the red-carpet premiere were the miniseries stars  Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dernand Zoe Kravitz.

The Passion Project

The American comedy-drama miniseries series Big Little Lies that premieres this February on HBO consists of seven episodes under the directorial helm of Jean-Marc Vallée. The series creator is David Kelley, who is known for such television hits as  Ally McBeal, Picket Fences, The Practice, Chicago Hope, among others.

Like Nicole Kidman, Reese acted in and served as executive producer of the new series with a juicy plot twist. The series is about the tragic fallout of secrets in a small town.  The Wild actress essays the role of fast-talking, multitasking mother of two, while Nicole plays a complicated character Celeste Wright.

Some of the artists joining Reese and tinseltown’s finest actresses in Big Little Lies are Alexander Skarsgård and Adam Scott. Big Little Lies is based on the book of the same name penned by Australian author Liane Moriarty.

The book has been described as a “fluffy” one that balances humor with more serious issues like domestic abuse, infidelity, and bullying.  Nicole stated that the creative people behind the miniseries were true to the essence of the book.

Reese Witherspoon’s career has been flying high for some time now.  Her family was with her when she graced the premiere event of Sing at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Reese got nominated for Favorite Voice From An Animated Movie at the Kids’ Choice Awards, for Sing. She voiced a shy pig mother-of-25 called Rosita.
