In case you missed it, Jennifer Aniston has recently joined Instagram and I know that the internet is on strict instruction to not break down, but it came close on Wednesday when the A-lister set up an account (or, made an account public) and suddenly 13 million people started following her.
Instagram had a few ‘glitches’ when the public discovered Jennifer Aniston had set up an account, so thankfully we could all start following her within a few hours and get some of that Jenny goodness.
Setting up an Instagram account may have been a long time in the making, with many fans wishing Jen (yes, I like to refer to her like she is my friend) would share oodles of photos and insights to her life via the social media giant, but this one photo could have made it worth the wait.
Today Jennifer, or Jen as I like to call her, posted her first throwback photo and fans went crazy.
It’s a photo of the Friends star as a little girl, and if you swipe across, one of her more recently, wearing a cute sunhat in both photos. Awwww.
The photo has received over 4 million likes and counting, with a few of her celeb friends such as Reese Witherspoon commenting on it. Reese, or Re as I like to call her, giving a good old “Cutie pie ????” with one of the first comments. Maria Sharapova asked for some tips “Please share your Insta algorithm secrets ????”, and of course there were many Jennifer Aniston fan accounts commenting and reposting the image, making it go, yep, you guessed it, viral.

And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM ???????? A post shared by Jennifer Aniston (@jenniferaniston) on
When the account first went live, Jen posted a photo of her catching up with her Friends crew and many people were zooming in to see what the white substance was on her phone… way to join Instagram huh!
But there have been many ‘experts’ who have said it’s not the white stuff many people think it is, it’s just a reflection from the light. Phewf. I’m thinking the internet is thanking it’s lucky stars as it didn’t want another close call, almost breaking once for this account was enough!
Will you be joining the Jen Instagram following? Do you love her as much as we do? It almost feels cult like doesn’t it…. SHARE your thoughts in the comments below.
