Jennifer Aniston Sets Guinness World Record On Instagram

Jennifer Aniston’s long-awaited Instagram debut this week has made quite an impact.

On Tuesday, fans of the former ‘Friends’ star were delighted to hear she had finally succumbed to the temptations of social media and signed up to Instagram.


News of her Instagram debut spread like wildfire and quickly lead to a staggering influx of fans clicking through to her new profile.

Considering people have been desperate for the star to join for so long, it wasn’t exactly surprising that she crashed the entire app, with hundreds of thousands of users attempting to follow her all at once.

And if her presence hadn’t already racked up enough caos in Instagram-land, she made fans go wild with her debut post – a selfie with her fellow ‘Friends’ costars from the beloved sitcom; Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), and Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing).

Now that Instagram has resolved its technical issues, Jen’s account is standing strong at a whopping 11.9 million followers, at the time of writing.

Her following has grown at a ridiculously fast rate. So much so, that she has actually broken a world record.

Yep, you read that right. The Guinness World Records revealed on Wednesday that the actress had broken the record for the fastest time for an Instagram account to reach 1 million followers, reaching the major milestone in just five hours and 16 minutes. Impressive.

Aniston’s record-setting achievement has beaten a record previously held by the account @sussexroyal, the official Instagram for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. They reached 1 million followers in April in a time of five hours and 45 minutes, Business Insider reports.

Since her record-smashing first day on Instagram, Aniston has since shared a second post with fans from her upcoming Apple Tv + show, ‘The Morning Show,’ whom she is starring in alongside Reese Witherspoon.

Aniston stars an established TV anchor who doesn’t take kindly to the suggestion that her career is on the way out, while Witherspoon is an up-and-comer who begins to steals the limelight. The comedy-drama series, air when the streaming platform launches on November 1.

Jen has also remained pretty active over on her Instagram story – sharing some behind the scenes snaps from ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’

Fingers crossed this novelty doesn’t wear off anytime soon because we can’t get enough of this Jen An content.
