Gwyneth Paltrow's latest Instagram post will give you a severe case of the double takes...
Gwyneth Paltrow was the victim of mistaken Instagram identity this weekend when she had a bit of a spooky run-in whilst flicking through her feed.
The 42-year-old actress may be one of the most recognisable women in the world but even she had to do a double take when one of her loyal fans shared this snap of her. Or is it?
Rocking oversized, round sunglasses with her usually perfectly styled blonde locks now grey and scraped back into a casual ponytail, this photo is Gwynnie but not as we've come to know her. Mainly because, it’s not! See — we told you it would blow your mind.
It may look like her twin but it’s actually a snap of her movie star mother Blythe Danner in her younger years, and her resemblance to her daughter Gwyneth is certainly uncanny.
The photograph was taken of Blythe on the set of the 1972 episode of Colombo — the year that she actually gave birth to Gwyn. Freaky, huh?
Unsurprisingly the Iron Man starlet was just as creeped out by the doppelganger shot as the rest of us as she regrammed the post along with the caption: ‘#repost Okay. This is weird. #isthatmeormymom’. We’re feeling you, GP.
The photograph may have been taken a while back but Gwyneth and her mum are still super-alike today. Just look at those cheekbones…
So, the next time someone points out just how much you look like your mum, behind your false smile you’ll have the comfort of knowing that you’re not the only one having to go through the mundane comparisons.
Sorry mum — as much as we love you and you’re obviously a bona fide babe, it gets really, REALLY old being told ‘you could be sisters’ for the millionth time...
