Yeah. The 57 year old actress from such badass films as Thelma and Louise, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Beetlejuice, A League of Their Own and The Fly actually placed 24 out of 300, missing the bid for the actual trip to Sydney, Australia in 2000 but still kicking ass, nonetheless. Oh, and she also founded in 2004 the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.
In the short FunnyorDie exclusive (linked to below), Davis puts on the pink baseball uniform from A League of Their Own, chants “Beetlejuice” 3 times and shoots an iPod with an arrow. SO COOL. Ms. Davis, you are officially on my list of ladies I want to be when I grow up.
