Jennifer Aniston has answered our prayers by getting in on the Instagram action. It may have been brief, but it was glorious...
Jennifer Aniston is one of our all-time fav celebs here at InStyle but there's always been one thing about her that upsets us to our core. Yep, the fact that she's completely shunned all forms of social media.
Twitter? Nope. Snapchat? Nada. Instagram? As if...
At least, that's what we thought. Last week, the 46-year-old actress broke her social media veto and got in on the Instagram action by taking over the account of hair-care company Living Proof for a day. And yes, it was brilliant.
How this mega news managed to pass us all by last week is beyond us — we pride ourselves on our Jen An fangirling — but now that we've been given a taste of what Jennifer's personal account could look like, we officially want more.
Living Proof took to its Instagram on Thursday last week to announce to its 38K following that Jen (a big fan of the brand) had a little surprise in store for them. Posting a pic of the star at its headquarters, Living Proof captioned the shot; 'Special treat for our Instagram fans: our own Jen Aniston is taking over our feed for the day. Take it away, Jen!'
What happened next was the best thing to ever happen in Instagram history. Can you tell we're excited?
Posting a snap of what we can only assume is Jennifer's average daily breakfast of toast, a poached egg, sliced avocado and tomatoes she captioned the shot simply; 'Good morning, Instagram!' Gah.
Post-brekkie, Jen went on to share a photograph of her working out while her loyal pooch Dolly stayed by her side. How adorable is that? Jen wrote; 'A little barre work with my beauty'.
Then, things got serious. As the Instagram addicts amongst you will already know, Thursday's are the most important day of the week on the platform. Why? Throwback Thursday's of course! It's the one day in every seven that you can share a pic of yourself from six years ago sitting on a beach in Spain with a killer tan and a cocktail in hand without feeling like an idiot. And Jen's #tbt has to be one of the best yet.
Sharing a snap of herself and a pal before her Friends days, Jennifer looks almost unrecognisable with her super dark, sans blow-dry tresses...
She quipped: '#tbt to a time before we had Living Proof'. We can only hope that one day we'll be #tbt-ing to a time when Jen wasn't on Insta.
We could gush over every single on of Jennifer's Instagram posts but we reckon we should let them speak for themselves. Enjoy...
'Our chickens have been very hard at work'
'My perfect salad – Bulgar, cucumbers, parsley, mint, red onion, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, & pistachios'
'Sent from my love... JT and cast Living 'the' Proof in Austin's intense humidity'
'Sophie loves a cucumber'
'COULD. NOT. PUT. DOWN. Now late for dinner #obsessed'
Then, after all the fun was had, Jen took to Instagram one last time, showing us what looks like her bedside table. 'Time for a Night Cap. Thanks for letting me dip my toe in the world of social media for a day. Goodnight, Instagram...with love, XO jen', we don't ever want it to end.
Now that she's had a taster of Instagram, we can only hope she does the right thing and joins it permanently. That's the kind of world we want to live in.
