For more than 27 years, Thelma and Louise has entertained audiences across the globe.
The road film was dubbed as one of the strongest feminist movies of the decade, and was noted for it's brilliant acting and incredible soundtrack. But while audiences may have fully enjoyed Thelma and Louise's antics, only true fans would know what really went on behind the scenes.
Here are eight facts about Thelma and Louise that'll make you say the code word "peaches."
1. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis weren't the first choices for the lead roles
Among the top contenders were Jodie Foster, Michelle Pfeiffer, Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, and Holly Hunter.
2. George Clooney auditioned five times to play J.D.
The famed actor ended up losing the part to his close friend, Brad Pitt.
“I didn’t watch that movie for a long time,” Clooney said during an interview at the Telluride Film Festival. “I was really stuck doing a lot of bad TV at that time. And I had auditioned and auditioned, and it got right down to Brad and I, and he got it. And I just couldn’t watch that movie for a couple of years... When I saw it, I thought actually that was the right choice. [Brad] was really good in it, and I would have f***ed it up somehow."
3. Brad Pitt was only paid $6,000 for his supporting role
While Pitt only made $6,000 on the 1991 film, he would later earn $10 million for his role as Michael in Barry Levinson's Sleepers.
4. The cast wasn't always sober
"We asked the prop guy, 'Do you have any real tequila? Because it’s easier to act if we taste alcohol.' So we pounded back quite a few, and we’re laughing between takes and both feeling, 'We're so drunk! This is great!'" Davis said.
