So the Thelma & Louise actress has an interesting alternative… she wants to be called ‘Honey’!

The 67-year-old even wore a ‘Honey’ name-charm necklace for her recent appearance on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“My hairstylist said it’s a Southern thing, and I thought, that’s kind of fabulous,” she told The New York Times.

“I like that. ‘Honey, come over here.’ ‘Where’s Honey?’ That’s the plan.”

We reckon the mum-of-3 might be on to something.
