The 24-year-old had fans doing a double take when she sat next to her grandma, Betty Reese, at the “Golden Bachelor” finale on Thursday.
The duo were all smiles sitting in the live studio audience.
“My grandma Betty needed a date,” Phillippe told her Instagram followers. “She knew exactly who to call!”
The college student, who wore a black top, sequined shorts and sheer tights to watch Season 1 lead Gerry Turner propose to winner Theresa Nist, went on to write that her grandparent is the one who “deserves all the roses.”
She posted a video of Reese, 75, accepting a flower and gushing, “I love you, my dear.”
While Witherspoon was not in attendance herself, social media users still couldn’t help but point out the similarities between the actress, 47, and her family members.Betty Reese and Ava Phillippe showed off their similarities in the studio audience. avaphillippe/Instagram Social media users pointed out their resemblance to Witherspoon. reesewitherspoon/Instagram The actress, however, doesn’t think she looks like her and Ryan Phillippe’s 24-year-old. avaphillippe/Instagram

Although the actor acknowledged that there is a “father-son resemblance” between himself and son Deacon, he claimed the 20-year-old looks “more like Reese’s side of the family.”
Ryan continued, “Ava looks more like mine. Quite often, the interpretation in the media is that she looks exactly like her mom and he looks exactly like me, but I think we both feel differently about it.”
