This week Jennifer Aniston broke the Internet (and a Guinness World Record) when she joined social media this week. The 50-year-old actress has gotten warm welcomes from both fans and celebs alike, including fellow actress and Latina Powerhouse Salma Hayek.
Salma Hayek welcomed Jennifer Aniston to social media with this throwback picture from 2012
The Mexican actress took to her own social media to welcome Jennifer to the social media club by sharing two throwback pictures of them. “Welcome to the Instagram party @JenniferAniston," she wrote alongside the photos. We were waiting for you!!!” The actress then translated the message for all her Spanish fans. “Bienvenida a la fiesta de Instagram Jennifer! Ya te estábamos esperando!!!”
This week, Jennifer joined social media and her first post featured a selfie with her Friends co-stars. Naturally, the world went crazy for the content. The Morning Show star also revealed she had some practice before officially joining the social media world. During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she shared that she had a fake account before making her own profile. A Finsta, if you will. "Well, it was a stalker account, yes," she told Jimmy Kimmel. "When I was thinking about doing this, I sort of figured it was time to kind of understand the world and dip my toe into the sort of social media pool.”

She also broke the World Guinness Record for gaining the most followers after making her grand debut. Within the first five hours and 16 minutes, she gained about one million followers. The previous holders of the record—Prince Harry and Meghan Markle—reached one million followers in about five hours and 45 minutes.
You go, Jen!
