'Friends' fame Jennifer Aniston's Instagram debut took the photo-sharing app by storm. Hours after her first post, which was all about a reunion of the popular sitcom's stars, the actress crossed one million followers mark. The 50-year-old achieved the feat in just five hours and sixteen minutes, and set a new record.

'The Morning Show' actress not only gained friends, but she also dethroned one famous couple for the title: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The royal couple previously held the title.

Interestingly, the 50-year-old actress's first post was a selfie of a reunion with 'Friends' co-stars Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc. She captioned the picture "And now we're Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM".

Immediately after Aniston's friends and fans noticed her account, it temporarily crashed with the page showing "Sorry, this page isn't available." In less than an hour, she racked up 116,000 followers.

Jennifer Aniston is best known for her role as Rachel Green in the 90's cult TV sitcom 'Friends', that aired on NBC. The star was last seen with Adam Sandler in the Netflix feature movie 'Murder Mystery'.
