Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram with the perfect post for Friends fans. Even though the show ended in 2004 after 10 seasons, the reaction to Aniston’s post proves that the fans still love the show and the actors involved.
Jennifer Aniston has waited a while to join Instagram. The platform has been around since 2010 and has around a billion monthly users. But that doesn’t mean she didn’t know how to enter the social media platform with a huge bang.
Aniston’s first picture made fans go wild. It was a selfie of the main cast of Friends. The TV show starred Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry, and although we’ve been teased many times with a possible reunion, we had not seen the whole cast in one place in more than a decade. The post marks the first time they’ve all been together in a photo since 2004 when the show ended.
The caption made fans happy too. She captioned the photo with, “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM 👋🏻”
The selfie was likely taken during a cast get-together earlier this month. Aniston talked about in on The Howard Stern Show saying, “We just had dinner this week. The whole gang. Everyone was there. Schwimmer was in town and we all happened to have a window of time, so we all got together. We laughed so hard.”
It didn’t take long for the news to spread about Aniston’s new social media account. Her account became unavailable for a few minutes, probably as hundreds of thousands of people tried to follow her.
Aniston also got involved in other parts of the platform. She commented on a selfie of her with Courtney Cox that her former costar had posted with the caption, “A rare night and I love it.” Aniston replied with, “A rare comment and I love YOU.” Aniston also commented on Matt LeBlanc’s photo celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Friends premier with “You don’t have to # me anymore.”
Last year, Aniston told InStyle that she didn’t have a Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram account, but that she would sometimes look people up on Instagram.
She joined Instagram days after her appearance on Entertainment Tonight when she said her friend Reese Witherspoon had encouraged her to join the platform with “intriguing” arguments in favor of it.
