"Thelma & Louise" stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis staged a heartwarming reunion in honor of the film's 30th anniversary.


It's been three decades since Thelma and Louise embarked on their adventurous road trip in the Ridley Scott film, "Thelma & Louise."

The legendary actresses Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis, who brought these groundbreaking characters to life on the hit movie, recently reunited to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Taking to Instagram, Geena Davis Institute, an organization founded by Davis, shared a string of photos featuring the two onscreen pals reunited for a Q & A session.

The shots showed memorable moments from the drive-in reunion which sent fans down memory lane. One of the shots showed the stars recreating a kiss from the movie's final scene. The caption read:

"Let's keep going! Thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday for the 30th-anniversary screening of Thelma and Louise. We had an incredible time..."


During the interview, the women discussed hot topics like the impact of the movie on their lives and the medical landscape. Fans flooded the comment segment with odes to the 90s film and the iconic actresses.

New generation of males was different because they learned to embrace the fluidity of imagination and question several male stereotypes.

Many also disclosed how the story of the two women taking their fates into their own hands served as an inspiration to them. The Q & A was moderated by Rebecca Keegan of The Hollywood Reporter as a prelude to the main event which took place at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.


The special anniversary drive-in screening event saw the women rocking identical T-shirts. When the pair assumed the onscreen characters three decades ago, many predicted it would be the start of a revolution for women in the movie industry.

As predicted, more movies celebrating women have been released, but the world was still a long way from the revolution Davis and Sarandon anticipated. However, the 74-year-old remained hopeful. She once divulged:

"Because it is a male-driven patriarchal society, men haven't had to adjust. Maybe they just haven't been challenged in terms of their imagination."


Sarandon also expressed that the new generation of males was different because they learned to embrace the fluidity of imagination and question several male stereotypes. That could be the change the industry needed all along.

It appears this is a season of reunions, as several other celebrities have brought back their characters to life in reunion specials. Two celebrities who joined this trend were Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner of "Romancing The Stone."

The pair recently appeared on the final season of "The Kominsky Method," reprising their roles as Jack and Joan in their eighties show and bringing back 37-year-old memories.

Watching these extraordinary couples grace the television screens again after several decades has left fans craving the return of some fan-favorite shows to the big screen.
