Thelma and Louise are back together again!
Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, who starred as the titular characters in 1991's classic flick, Thelma & Louise, reunited at The Hollywood Reporter's Annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Davis, 60, wore a cheery floral print dress with bell sleeves and a killer pair of moto booties to the Hollywood power outing, while Sarandon -- who wore a boot to support the ankle she sprained earlier this year -- went for old Hollywood glam vibes in a maroon wrap dress, long white coat, and white-rimmed sunglasses that would have made Louise proud.
It's been 25 years since these badass ladies teamed up on the big screen, and they're still giving us all of the feels and major #FriendshipGoals.
This Hollywood power breakfast was pretty much the perfect place for the longtime friends to get in a bonding sesh -- both women are serious advocates for promoting gender equality in Hollywood. On the event's red carpet, Sarandon told THR that Ryan Murphy's initiative to make 50 percent of his directors women is what convinced her to star in his upcoming FX drama, Feud.
"That was just so great, you know, when somebody actually puts into action something that people talk about but that he actually made the effort to do, which once you make the effort to do is not impossible," she said.
As for Davis, the outspoken women's advocate runs the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which works to
empower girls and has done years of research on gender prevalence in
entertainment. In fact, the mom of three just penned a letter to Hollywood, making the case that the way to see a female president is to put one on TV. (More ladies in charge, that is, like when Davis played the leader of the free world on the short-lived TV show, Commander-in-Chief.)
Davis shared the same sentiment with ET last year. "I'm very
confident and optimistic about the needle moving for the first time
soon," she said. "I work with all the networks and studios, sharing our research in a
very collegial and private way, and they're just profoundly impacted by
hearing the numbers. They had no idea they were leaving out that many
Luckily for us, this isn't the first time the dynamic duo has reunited on a red carpet this year. Not only did they pose for a Harper's Bazaar photo shoot in honor of Thelma & Louise's 25th anniversary in the spring, Davis and Sarandon were both visions in blue at the Fox upfronts in May.
