Geena Davis & Susan Sarandon Have a Thelma & Louise Reunion at the Golden Globes
The Thelma & Louise stars reunited at the Golden Globe Awards as they teased best actor nominees about donating half of their salaries to women
These partners in crime were back in the driver’s seat!
Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon took the stage on Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, and couldn’t help but reminisce about how things haven’t changed for women since Thelma & Louise hit theaters in 1991.
Davis, 61, smiled as she excitedly told Sarandon, 71, “Susan, they love that we fixed everything,” referring to the crowd’s applause as they prepared to announce the winner for best actor in a motion picture.
“Um, yeah, I don’t think we fixed quite everything, actually, it’s been 25 years,” Sarandon said, referencing the release of their iconic film. “But, tonight, we have all of these women standing up for each other and the men, too.”
Davis quickly said, “And the men, yeah, these five nominees have agreed to give half of their salary back so the women can make more than them!” causing laughter in the audience.

“I don’t think that actually happened,” Sarandon said, adding, “But, that’s a great idea. We’re still honored to present the award for best actor in a motion picture, drama.”
Gary Oldman ultimately won the award for his role as Winston Churchill in the film Darkest Hour. His fellow nominees included Daniel Day-Lewis for Phantom Thread, Timothée Chalamet for Call Me by Your Name, Denzel Washington for Roman J. Israel, Esq., and Tom Hanks for The Post.
It was a night for political statements and rousing speeches as actresses and actors arrived at the awards wearing black to oppose sexual harassment in Hollywood.
Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria both arrived together at the red carpet, as well as Natalie Portman and America Ferrera — all of who headed the Time’s Up initiative.
