Thelma and Louise: It's a Selfie Kind of Life

Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis kaboomed the internet with an uploaded shot reminiscent of Thelma and Louise.


Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis were The Queen of Selfies before social media was even a blip on the computer screen. 

In 1991's Thelma and Louise, Thelma (Davis) and Louise (Sarandon) traveled across the southwest, committing murder and robbery. Along the way, the duo stop and take a glammed up, 1950s style selfie with smiling, happy faces. You have seen it on the cover.

So when the two actresses reunited and Sarandon posted the result on Twitter on June 19, the Internet exploded. 

Labeling the picture, “Inventors of the #selfie at it again. #ThelmaAndLouise,” the 67-year-old looks to the camera was slightest smirk, devilish glint in her brown eyes, and red hair framing a glowing face. Meanwhile, the A League of Their Own star shines with that serene, confident smile.

They may be 23 years older, but the women definitely define ageless.

While the road trip story ended with controversy and social commentary, the movie made its mark on society-especially the female buddy trope. 

The movie earned an Academy Award nomination for both Sarandon and Davis in the Best Actress In A Leading Role category. Neither won a statute but Callie Khouri walked away with an Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Original Screenplay. 

The critics loved the film. To say the least.

Thelma and Louise's been referenced everywhere in pop culture: video games (GTA V, Zelda), film and television (Set It Off, Veronica Mars), art ("Let's Not Get Caught, Let's Keep Going"-NSFW), and Broadway (Rent).

Stars before the film, Sarandon and Davis found critical acclaim afterwards.

1995’s Dead Man Walking won Sarandon an Oscar for Best Actress and 1994’s The Client earned her a Best Actress BAFTA. In the meantime, Davis earned a Best Actress in a Television Series Golden Globe for her role in ABC’s Commander in Chief.

Both actresses went on to use their fame for activisism, too. 

The Geena Davis Institute works on creating a more equal role share for women in the entertainment industry. Her sponsorship created the largest research centered on gender roles in children’s entertainment. GDI puts out information annually and works to lower the gap.

 

Sarandon’s left-liberal political views aren’t really a Rocky Horror for her, either. Her work involves everything from gay rights to UNICEF Goodwill ambassadorship. She faced controversy for being against the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Vocal about the rights of humans, she received the Action Against Hunger Humanitarian Award in 2008. 

She’s never been shy. Perfect for the selfie culture.

Say cheese, you two!
