There are famous moms and daughters who look similar. And then there are Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin look-alike photos. Apple is Gwyneth’s eldest child whom she shares with her ex-husband Chris Martin. (The couple are also parents to son Moses.) Since Apple became older, fans have noted how much she looks like her famous mom. It’s hard to pin-point why Apple and Gwyneth look so much alike. Perhaps it’s their similar eye shape or their near-identical dusty blonde hair. Whatever the reason, it’s clear that Apple is becoming Gwyneth 2.0.
In a March 2016 interview with Elite Daily, Gwyneth opened up about what she hopes Apple learns from her about beauty. I hope that the main thing [Apple] will have learned about beauty from me is that, irrespective of anything, she is beautiful. She is an intrinsically beautiful human being,” she said at the time. “Beauty is fun and it can be a wonderful expression of who you are and playing dress up and feeling good, but I hope that underneath that all she’ll know her value and worth and feel beautiful because of that.”
But, of course, Apple’s parents aren’t her only famous family members. Apple’s grandmother (Gwyneth’s mom) is actress Blythe Danner. In an August 2020 interview for Gwyneth’s website Goop, Apple talked to her mom and grandmother about aging. In the interview, she asked her mom “at what age did you feel prettiest,” to which Gwyneth explained that felt especially great in her 30s; though she also confessed that aging can be “hard.”
“It’s definitely a process and I think when you see your face start to change you don’t necessarily feel your best self externally. But the irony is it’s that time in your life when you actually really like yourself and love yourself. So you sort of internally feel really beautiful,” she said at the time.
And so, without further ado, we present to you the best Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple’s Martin’s look-alike photos.
