But where are the women?

Thelma & Louise was a trailblazing film in a few ways. Aside from its feminist themes and being the one of the first films to realize the appeal of a shirtless Brad Pitt, it also gave the world one of the first iconic selfies of pop culture.

And while Susan Sarandon recently posted an updated version of the 1991 film's snap (below), that didn't stop Jimmy Kimmel from wanting to create his own version of the pic when Sarandon stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday.

Midlife Moms

Geena Davis had a decision to make. A Big Decision. Atthe age of 46, the statuesque movie star was very pregnant -- make that very, very pregnant -- and driving with her husband, physician Reza Jarrahy, 31, near her home in San Diego. She could reach the nearest hospital in 10 minutes or turn the car onto the 5 freeway and drive two hours to the L.A. hospital where she'd undergone months of prenatal care. "They decided to take their chances and head to L.A.," says her dad, retired engineer William Davis, 88. "There was nothing much happening when they started the ride, but by the end plenty was happening." By 2 p.m. April 10, the elder Davis, who lives in Wareham, Mass., got the happy news that his daughter had given birth to a 6-lb., 11-oz. girl. Naming his only grandchild might have been tough, but bringing little Alizeh Keshvar Davis Jarrahy into the world was evidently not. "She never had one problem during her pregnancy, not one bit of morning sickness," says Davis. "And Geena said the birth was no big deal. She was in labor something like 4 1/2 hours. For a first-time birth, and at her age, it's amazing. She's amazing."
