Reese Witherspoon's daughter Ava isn't her only mini-me! Witherspoon's adorable niece Abby Witherspoon is also a dead-ringer for the Oscar winner!

At last night's Hollywood premiere of Hot Pursuit, Witherspoon walked the carpet with her precious pint-size niece, who appears in the film playing a young version of Witherspoon's character.

The look-alike duo were all smiles while posing together. Reese looked gorgeous in her chic black and white dress with heels while Abby looked super-cute in a colorful floral dress and flats. Witherspoon posted a cute Instagram of her and Abby on the carpet with the caption, "Me & my sweet sweet niece Abby James, who plays me as a child in #HotPursuit #MiniMe."

As for what advice her movie star aunt gave her before hitting the red carpet, Abby told Variety, "She told me to keep smiling."

Before the premiere, Witherspoon also posted a photo of her and 15-year-old daughter Ava. The twosome's resemblance is so uncanny they could be twins!

"Me and my girl ready for #HotPursuit premiere @avaphillippe," Witherspoon wrote. Too precious.

Meanwhile, Witherspoon opened up to E! News on the red carpet about a particular Hot Pursuit scene where co-star Sofía Vergara gets rough while they pretend to make out. "She just started pulling my hair and for the first couple of takes!" she laughed. "I was like, 'Oh my gosh! This really hurts!' And then I was like, 'This is really funny!' So it was great!"
