With certain mother-daughter duos, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Though always fun to note a strong family resemblance, it's especially fascinating when daughters grow up to become look-alikes of their celebrity mothers. Reese Witherspoon, Cindy Crawford, and Goldie Hawn have all experienced this phenomenon, as they've raised young women who have turned into undeniable mini versions of themselves.

Meryl Streep is another celebrity mom whose daughter has followed in her footsteps, not only as an actress but also in bone structure and facial expressions. 33-year-old Mamie Gummer is the spitting image of her Oscar-winning mom. From her golden locks to high cheekbones to beaming smile, Mummer is Streep's closest doppelgänger at any age, but we found a set of photos of the two, each in their early 20s, where the resemblance is uncanny. In the photo of Streep circa 1970, she's just 21. In the comparison, Gummer, at age 23, looks identical to her mom.
