Jennifer Aniston’s “Friends” co-stars will always be there for her—even for her first day on Instagram.

The actress on Tuesday joined the social media platform with a bang, posting a photo with her former co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc.

“And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too,” she wrote. “HI INSTAGRAM.”

Aniston’s foray into social media comes as her new Apple TV+ show, “The Morning Show,” prepares to launch.

At a junket for the drama over the weekend, Aniston spoke with Entertainment Tonight about the appealing parts of joining Instagram.

“I think what you resist persists,” she told Brooke Anderson.

“I also think, you know, it’s something that’s part of our world now, and it’s not going away and listening to [Reese Witherspoon] talk about it and how you can actually kind of have a little bit more control over the narrative that’s out there and right some wrongs and some silly things that, God knows, are said often, sounds intriguing.”

Aniston played Rachel Green on “Friends” throughout its 10-season run between 1994 and 2004.

The move to join Instagram came after Aniston explained why a “Friends” movie won’t ever happen.

Aniston told Variety: “Our producers wouldn’t want it, wouldn’t let us. Look, it’s not been without our desire to, because our fans have wanted it so much.”

Whether all six “Friends” cast members would be involved, she added that “it depends.”

“I mean, we haven’t all sat in a room. But would we have loved to have done something together? Yeah. It would have been fun. We could have redesigned it for a couple episodes,” she said. “But whatever. Maybe it’s better this way, but we’ll never know,” she added.

Three weeks ago, Cox, who played Monica Geller on the still-popular sitcom, uploaded a photo of the cast from years ago. “Celebrating a Thursday night 25 years ago. Thank you to all of our loyal fans across the world. You’ve certainly been there for us! … I love these guys!”
