Sometimes this trope can be forced by a movie that covers a long period of time. If we see the mother of a small child, and then see the child grow to adulthood, it's usually easier to cast a young woman as the mother and "age" her with makeup, instead of the other way around.

A related effect tends to crop up in animated portrayals of middle-aged women. If a female character has an obviously attractive mother, expect them both to look about the same age.

* Justified in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' wherein Vincent Kartheiser plays David Boreanaz's son despite being only ten years younger. This is due to 1) a plotline in which Connor is taken to a hell dimension and ages nearly twenty years in a few weeks, 2) Boreanaz playing a vampire who is over two hundred years old (but died in his mid-twenties), and 3) Kartheiser playing a character a few years younger than himself
