Uh-oh! Thelma and Louise together again? Well, in selfie-form anyway. Susan Sarandon Tweeted the above photo, which shows her and her Thelma & Louise co-star Geena Davis posed side-by-side and looking gorgeous together, beneath the photo of their Thelma & Louise characters. It's been more than twenty years since the film released, but you'd barely know it to look at the updated versions of these two beautiful actors.
Did Thelma Dickinson and Louise Sawyer invent the selfie? Ok, probably not but you have to admit, the photo of these two characters as they're about to embark on what should have been a two-day girls-only getaway goes down in movie history as one of the classic selfie photos in film, doesn't it? Especially when we consider how happy and mostly carefree Thelma and Louise were when they snapped this photo. Sure, Thelma was a bit concerned about how Darryl (Christopher McDonald) would react when he found out she skipped town for a road trip with Louise, but neither woman could have predicted what was in store for them after that photo was taken.
Directed by Ridley Scott and written by Callie Khouri (who won an Oscar for the screenplay), Thelma & Louise released in 1991 and centers on two friends who go away for a weekend that's meant to be a fun vacation but turns into a crime spree. While there are certainly some dark moments in this story, to put it mildly, including the sexual assault that served as a catalyst for the weekend-gone-wrong, there are some lighter moments too, particularly in the way Davis' Thelma finally lets her hair down and cut loose. There was also Brad Pitt's young, cowboy-hat-wearing drifter character to stir the pot (and other things). Let's just pause for a minute and appreciate...
Ah, the memories.
Back to the photo (vague spoiler ahead!), let's just say that this iconic selfie is revisited again at the very end of the movie...
It's a mark of how much things can change in just a couple of days.
These days, it looks like both Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis are both keeping busy. While Sarandon has Jason Stone's thriller The Calling coming up, Davis is credited for Max Landis' comedy Me Him Her.
