Catherine Zeta-Jones and her lookalike daughter Carys Douglas star on the September 2019 cover of Vanity Fair Spain.

The 49-year-old Welsh actress has clearly passed down her stellar genes to her 16-year-old daughter, who shares her mother’s dark hair and chiselled facial features.

Highlighting the resemblance, the mother-daughter duo wear matching Fendi jackets styled with white shirts.

Further images and video footage shared from the issue’s cover photoshoot show the pair wearing more coordinated outfits.

The shoot comes ahead of Catherine turning 50 on 25 September this year.

Translated from original Spanish, in an interview for the publication Catherine was asked about the “pressure to be perfect” in the run-up to her milestone birthday.

“Your exterior is an extension of what you have inside. I am very happy with the person I am now. Satisfaction is something very beautiful,” she answered.

Carys, whose father is actor Michael Douglas, 74, also reveals how she “developed a special ability to detect paparazzi” when she was a child, telling her mother, “Mom, there, in the tree on the left”.

“From the fame of my parents I have learned the importance of being true to oneself and to keep our feet on the ground,” she revealed.

This is the second magazine cover the teenager has starred on with her mother. In August last year, when Carys was just 15, the pair featured on the front cover of the Town & Country September 2018 issue.

Giving Carys and Catherine a run for their money is supermodel Cindy Crawford and her daughter Kaia Gerber, who have done numerous magazine covers together including Vogue France in April 2016.

The “three generation” magazine cover has also become a thing.

There was Reese Witherspoon covering Vogue with daughter Ava and mother Betty, and Jada Pinkett-Smith, together with her daughter, Willow Smith, and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris, starring on the first digital cover of Harper’s Bazaar.
