Reese Witherspoon Shared a Rare Photo With Her Brother and They Look Identical

The Big Little Lies actress has only posted pictures with him a handful of times.

It's no secret that Reese Witherspoon has strong family genes. The Big Little Lies star and her two oldest children Ava, 19, and Deacon, 15, could pass as triplets (yes, even with an age gap of 20-plus years). Her youngest son with husband Jim Toth, appropriately named Tennessee, also shares her blonde hair and delicate features. See below for evidence!

But Reese has more lookalikes than just her kids. The actress and her older brother, John D. Witherspoon, basically have the same face. Reese shared a series of selfies with her "bro" in a recent Instagram story, and the photos speak for themselves.

While Reese is constantly posting sweet snaps of her children and husband, she has rarely shared any of John over the years—so it's easy to forget how much she resembles her only brother. The last time Reese uploaded a picture of him was in April, as part of a sweet tribute for National Siblings Day.

"Happy #NationalSiblingsDay to the best big brother!" she captioned the throwback of them as kids. "What's that saying? Fashion fades but family is forever?? 😂 Love you!"

Before that, Reese posted a photo of John in 2014 when the pair appeared to be catching up at a cafe in Nashville.

"Love seeing my brother," she wrote alongside the picture of them smiling next to each other. "He shares my love for doughnuts and that's how I know we are related."

Even if he didn't like doughnuts, I think we'd still have a hunch.
