Diane Keaton confuses Deacon Phillippe for young Leo DiCaprio but Reese Witherspoon correct her

Diane Keaton confused Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s son Deacon for a young Leonardo DiCaprio in a new Instagram post celebrating ‘male beauty.’

Proud momma Reese was quick to jump in the comments to let her fellow Oscar winner know that the shot she thought was Leo was really her 18-year-old son.

Once it was pointed out, the photo, which was an image of the teen from a recent Interview Magazine article, did bear an uncanny resemblance to a teenaged DiCaprio.
