ennifer Aniston hates social media.
The 53-year-old actress – who joined Instagram in October 2019 – admits that being on social media platforms ‘doesn’t come naturally’ to her.
Jennifer – who has more than 40 million followers on the photo-sharing platform – said: ‘I hate social media. I’m not good at it.’
The Friends star joined the platform as part of a wider marketing campaign. However, her business plan ultimately fell through and she’s now ‘stuck with being on Instagram’.
‘Then the pandemic hit and we didn’t launch. So I was just stuck with being on Instagram. It doesn’t come naturally.’
Jennifer actually feels fortunate that she grew up in an environment without social media.
The actress observed that social media creates pressures for young girls, in particular.
She explained: ‘I’m really happy that we got to experience growing up, being a teenager, being in our 20s without this social media aspect.
‘Look, the internet, great intentions, right? Connect people socially, social networking. It goes back to how young girls feel about themselves, compare and despair.’
