Lookalike of the Week
Does Mia Wasikowska Look Like Gwyneth Paltrow?
Despite the endless list of Hollywood kids who end up being trainwrecks as adults, there are exceptions to the rule. Let's take Mia Wasikowska, for example. She was born to parents that made their living as photographers who traveled Europe to find their inspiration. Wasikowska herself would sometimes be the subject of her parents' photography, along with her siblings. The Wasikowskas got Mia involved enough for her to explore different forms of art on her own, as opposed to taking the often emulated thrust-in-the-limelight Honey Boo Boo route of parenting that's seen today. Through this exposure, Mia went on to be praised for her acting in several films, including Tim Burton's 2008 remake of Alice in Wonderland and in the 2010 film The Kids Are All Right.
Having been born to actress Blythe Danner and TV producer Bruce Paltrow, Wasikowska's lookalike went through a similar upbringing. Gwenyth Paltrow wasted no time getting her feet wet in the entertainment industry, having made her stage debut as a 5-year-old. Several years later, after appearing with her mother in the TV mini-series Cruel Doubt, she started to gain momentum as an actress in her own right. Paltrow became the "it" girl in Hollywood because of her work in films such as A Perfect Murder and Shakespeare in Love, for which she won an Oscar for Best Actress. Considering Paltrow and Mia both come from Polish roots, could that be a reason they share similar facial features and upbringing? One thing's for sure, Kim and Kanye better take notes on how to ensure their kid turns out like these ladies.
