Thelma & Louise, "Inventors of the Selfie," Show How It's Done

Susan Sarandon posted a reprise of her two-shot with Geena Davis to Twitter on Thursday, and of course it was an instant hit.

Sure, there are now drone selfies and 3-D selfies, but sometimes simple is best.

Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis arguably pioneered the genre back with the Polaroid they took at the start of the 1991 film “Thelma & Louise.”

On Thursday, the actors reprised their two-shot, proving that even 23 years later, they look way better than any of us when we do it.

“Inventors of the #selfie at it again,” Sarandon wrote in a tweet. People on Twitter seemed to dig it, with the Twitter post garnering nearly 20,000 retweets and 20,000 favorites.
