Gwyneth Paltrow Confuses Fans With A Throwback Photo Of Herself In Which She Looks Exactly Like Her Teenage Daughter

Date August 27, 2019

Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most influential actresses in Hollywood. But she has also gained fans for her private life, especially when it comes to motherhood.

Loving mother

Gwyneth and her ex-husband Chris Martin share two children Apple (born 2004) and Moses who arrived two years later.

In an interview with Good Housekeeping, Gwyneth revealed that even though she was a picture of happiness with the arrival of her children, she had some private struggles.

The mom revealed that she suffered postpartum depression after the birth of her son Moses. She said;

I felt like a zombie. I couldn't access my heart. I couldn't access my emotions. I couldn't connect.

It was a tough experience which she fortunately overcame.

Like mother like daughter

On August 23, the Iron Man star shared a throwback photo of herself on Instagram that had fans doing a double-take.

The photo was actually of the actress but based on the comments that followed, people were almost convinced it was actually a snap of her 15-year-old daughter Apple.

Gwyneth's picture showed her lounging comfortably on a beach and she captioned it with the words;

I've always been a summer girl.

Several people commented, noting the striking resemblance between how Apple looks today and how her mother looked then. @roblow exclaimed, "Apple!" while @sylvanitas commented, "Your children are your clones."

Another commenter @rosecamillellanes said;

literally thought this was Apple. wrote, "You looked exactly like Apple now," and @jack.bezza agreed writing, "I thought this was Apple for 5 seconds."

@dearstarks had a similar view;

Are you sure that girl is you? Looks like Apple!!

Mother and daughter are stunned too

Gwyneth Paltrow was just as taken aback by the similarity too. She commented;

Omg Apple is so you.

And when the teenage girl caught a glimpse of the incredible photo, Apple herself wrote;

I thought this was me wtf.

If there has ever been any doubt that Gwyneth and Apple are basically lookalikes, this amazing photo put that to rest. Plus, they are both equally as beautiful.
