There’s a new celeb on Instagram, and it’s one you’re definitely going to want to follow. Jennifer Aniston has an Instagram!
The actress posted her first picture, which shows her and her FRIENDS castmates, on Tuesday morning. She captioned the pic, “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM ??”
The picture shows a smiling Aniston, along with former castmates Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc.
A number of other celebrities have welcomed Aniston to social media in the comments section of the photo, including Reese Witherspoon, David Spade, and Julia Roberts.
She Already Has Over 160k Followers
Within the first hour of having an Instagram, Aniston had raked in over 160k followers– a number that will steadily be rising. In fact, Aniston gained so many followers in such a short amount of time that her Instagram page temporarily crashed.
It didn’t take long for it to get back up and running, though.
By late Tuesday morning, Aniston was trending on Twitter, with people commenting on how she’s “breaking the internet.” One fan commented, “The one where Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram with a FRIENDS reunion photo and broke the App. Literally. You can’t even follow her right now. ?”
Another wrote, “i can’t seem to follow jennifer aniston she literally broke ig with this picture im crying.”
Could There Be a FRIENDS Reunion
In June, Aniston hinted at a possible FRIENDS reunion. Speaking on Ellen, the actress was asked about the possibility of the show getting a reboot. She responded, “Ohhhkay,” Aniston said. “Why not? You know what, because, listen, I told you this. I would do it.”
She added that her costars, who appear in the Instagram picture above, would as well. “The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I’m sure,” she said.
Unfortunately, it seems that Aniston’s recent IG pic is the closest we’ve gotten to a FRIENDS reunion. That makes sense because the actress is busy with a number of projects in pre and post-production. Her IMDB states that a film she is starring in, titled The Fixer, is currently in pre-production, along with the TV series The Morning Show, which is in post.
The Fixer will also be produced by Aniston. To create the film, Fox 2000 acquired the life rights of Denise White (who Aniston will play). According to Variety, the film follows White, who was a contestant in the Miss USA Pageant before winning Miss Congeniality in 1994. Since then, she has been a sports manager for clients like Vince Young, Jared Allen, Brandon Marshall and DeSean Jackson.
In a 2014 article about White that was written by Paul Solotaroff, White shared, “You know, people made a fuss about the ‘Blind Side’ kid, like he was a one-of-a-kind deal… Well, 90% of my clients are the ‘Blind Side’ kid and need every bit of mothering they can get. Oh, you don’t know drama until you’ve heard my horror story. I’m the only woman manager in the NFL — hell, the only woman, period, in this godforsaken league. How do you think I landed all these guys?”
The movie does not yet have a release date.
