Because the French structure is different: there's no preposition in front of the thing being remembered.
Then why, Cette fille me rappelle une actrice célèbre?
Same thing?

Tu me rapelles ma mère - "You remind me of my mother." There's no equivalent for "of" in French. Cette fille me rappelle une actrice célèbre - "This girl reminds me of a famous actress." Same thing.
