In "Thelma & Louise," the girls take a selfie with a Polaroid camera. Now, stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis have reunited 23 years later to recreate the picture they took for the movie.

"Inventors of the selfie," Sarandon tweeted along with a photo of their famous "Thelma & Louise" pic of Sarandon in a scarf and Davis boasting a wide smile, taken with, of course, a Polaroid camera. Below it was a photo of the two actresses today, minus the scarf and taken with a smartphone.

While Colin Powell might have some disagreement about who gets credit for the selfie — last month he put one on Facebook from his youth that he took in a mirror — Davis and Sarandon definitely did take a selfie before it became a “thing.”

The two photos were getting plenty of attention online. “They actually look better now than they did then! Legends,” one person wrote on a Buzzfeed story about the selfie.

“I know!! How do they do it? Susan is in her 60s!” another commented.

“Thelma & Louise” became something of a cultural phenomenon that evoked both strong positive and negative reactions. In a 2011 St. Louis Tribune article, Davis talked about how women would stop her on the street and “they’d be holding onto my lapels” to talk about the impact the movie had on them.

The movie was unique, Davis told the Tribune, because it “was seeing two strong female characters who were friends. It's the story of an incredible friendship. Also, it's the story of women claiming power over their own lives, not giving up control of their own lives. In that way, the ending is a metaphor. They got away, they didn't surrender their control of their lives."
