The number of her followers is rising by the day, and millions that follow her are waiting for new posts. Many of her fans are yet to discover she’s on Instagram, so we can expect her follower count to rise even more in the future.

Casual Approach

The Friends star is enjoying her time on Instagram, but she’s not letting it become a distraction.

“I won’t let it be addictive. I decided to get two different phones. So one sits in my office and when that [Instagramming] has to happen, I’ll commit to that,” Jennifer Aniston told The Los Angeles Times.
