Jennifer Aniston messaged Justin Theroux to insist that he follow her on Instagram

The 50-year-old actress recently joined the photo-sharing platform and after Justin’s initial effort to follow his ex-wife’s account failed, she decided to contact him.

Justin, 48 – who was married to the Friends star from 2015 until 2017 – told Entertainment Tonight: “She actually texted me. She said, ‘You haven’t followed me,’ and I said, ‘Of course I followed you!’ and she’s like, ‘No you haven’t!’

“I realised I was one of the people caught in the glitch. So, I had followed, commented…”

Asked about the technical glitch with the website, Justin added: “People were having trouble being recognised as following.”

Recently, Jennifer – whose Instagram debut contributed to the glitch – confessed to having had a “stalker account” before officially joining Instagram

The Hollywood actress sparked significant interest when she joined the platform earlier this month – but it seems it wasn’t her first experience of the “social media pool”.

Jennifer explained: “It was a stalker account.

“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 social media pool.”

The Morning Show actress broke the Guinness World Record for reaching one million followers in the shortest time, after sharing a selfie with her former Friends castmates.

In fact, it took just five hours and 16 minutes to reach the one-million milestone.

Alongside the blurry selfie, Jennifer wrote: “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM (sic).”

Jennifer also joked about the glitches she caused on Instagram with a spoof video.

She captioned the clip: “I swear I didn’t mean to break it. Thank you guys for the kind, glitchy welcome. (sic)”
