Jennifer Aniston explains why she’ll never use TikTok

Jennifer Aniston has better things to do than spend hours scrolling on TikTok.

“I don’t have TikTok, nor will I ever. I just won’t,” she told “Entertainment Tonight” in a new interview. “I’m not gonna subscribe to one more thing that is gonna ruin my life or somebody else’s life.”

Although the “Friends” star officially joined Instagram in 2019, she likes to keep social media “at arm’s length.”

“It could suck you in and you’ve wasted hours of your life,” she said. “I can’t believe sometimes when I found myself in an absolute wormhole of dog, puppy videos and rescue animals and babies and cats.”

However, the 55-year-old actress noted that there’s also “some stuff online” she just doesn’t want to see.

“I don’t think we are designed to take in the amount of information at the speed and the rate that we do these days,” she added. “I just don’t think it’s good for us. I don’t think it’s healthy.”

She also blames a lot of “the mental illness” kids are “suffering” from nowadays on social media usage, explaining that teenagers constantly “compare” their lives to what they see online.

“It’s so hard to be a teenager these days,” she said. “We [even as adults] are so hard on ourselves, and kids are so mean, too.”

To combat the constant comparison game, Aniston has made it a point to be as authentic as possible online when she does post.

“I just think it’s best to just be who you are,” she said. “We’ve got good days. We’ve got bad days. We have good hair days. We’ve got s—tty hair days. We’ve got good skin days, bad skin days. It’s a mixed bag. It’s also just so unrealistic to try to sell something that doesn’t feel authentic.”

Although Aniston doesn’t post very often, when she does it’s typically fun photo dumps with friends, glimpses into her fitness routine and behind-the-scenes looks at Hollywood life.

During awards season, the “Just Go with It” star also gave her Instagram followers a peek inside her $21 million mansion while getting ready for the 2024 People’s Choice Awards.

In the pictures, Aniston put the finishing touches on her glamorous outfit while standing in her enormous closet.

The space, which was big enough to be a NYC apartment, featured sleek shelves, a long, wood aisle and a separate vanity area.

She also previously shared a look at her spa-like bathroom with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a garden, along with her modern, luxury kitchen fitted with state-of-the-art appliances and wood cabinetry.
