They invented the selfie 23 years ago when they posed for a snap on an old polaroid camera. Now, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis have updated the iconic shot from 1991 smash hit movie Thelma & Louise — using a smartphone, of course.
Susan Sarandon recently tweeted a comparative picture of hers with Geena Davis as well as the one clicked during the shoot of Thelma & Louise (1991). Both the actresses were nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress following the release of the critically-acclaimed film, but lost out to Jodie Foster who won for The Silence Of The Lambs
And for a reason.
The Ridley Scott-directed film followed Thelma Dickinson (Geena) and Louise Sawyer (Susan) who go on the run in a pale blue 1966 Thunderbird convertible after Thelma shoots dead a man who attempts to rape her.
Interestingly enough, the pair, who have remained friends, got together in 2011 to celebrate the classic movie's 20th anniversary at a series of events in the USA.
Geena, 58, says that at that time, she hadn't anticipated the impact on women the film would eventually have. She, however, has no regrets about a lack of sequel, considering the way the movie ended.
Anyway, we are looking forward to another selfie in 2016 when the film celebrates its 25th anniversary.
