"Now I can decide which pair to show them."

Why would someone so notoriously private join social media? Better the devil you know.

Jennifer Aniston has explained her sudden and shocking decision to join Instagram -- by comparing it to a carefully curated delicates drawer.

"Why would I do this? People are already in my panty drawers all the time," the superstar told The Guardian. "And I want them out of my panty drawers."

"But now I can decide which pair to show them."

Last month Jen became on of the last celebs to submit and join Instagram, becoming the fastest ever user to amass 1million followers in just five hours and 16 minutes, crashing her account as she did so.

The actress admitted she still can't get her head around the fame that has engulfed her for exactly half her life.

"I find it very odd. I don't understand it – it doesn’t make sense to me," she said. "I'd love for someone to break it down, but there it is and now it has to keep going."

Aniston sat for the interview with her "The Morning Show" co-star Reese Witherspoon, where they discussed the toxic workplace elements the show touches upon.

"There's this absolute denial – 'It was consensual, it was consensual' – if you're a narcissist to the degree a lot of these guys are," Aniston said. "They think, of course every woman wants to sleep with me."

Both actresses counted their luck at avoiding unpalatable encounters with Harvey Weinstein, despite both working on films he either distributed or produced.

"I was never alone in a room with him," Aniston said.

"I was never alone with him either. But I didn't know why," Witherspoon added.

"Me neither. But always someone would stand in the room," Aniston continued.

"Now I look back and I'm very grateful to those people who stayed in the room with me. What they knew, I don't know," Witherspoon acknowledged.

Reese however did not make it through her career unscathed; in 2017 she revealed that she had been sexually assaulted by a director at 16 and told to keep quiet about it, adding that it was not an isolated incident. She said at the time she felt guilty for not speaking up about it earlier.

But when the Guardian interviewer Hadley Freeman attempted to touch on the subject and the fact Witherspoon waited 25 years to tell her story, she said the "temperature in the room drops palpably."

"Ummm no. It was a culture of silence and silence was a condition of my employment. That's what I was told," Witherspoon said of her decision to stay silent.

"I wouldn't normally press a woman about her experiences of sexual harassment and assault," Hadley then wrote. "But given that for the past 20 minutes we have been talking about the importance of talking about sexual assault allegations and cover-ups, and the courage of women who speak up, I am surprised that Witherspoon is shutting down any discussion of her experiences with aphorisms about art."

When Freeman then asked if the people who harassed her or told her to stay silent were still working in the entertainment industry, she said the room went "sub-Arctic."

"Ummmmm no," Witherspoon eventually said, before shooting "a frowny-smiley face towards her PRs"; they in turn fired a firm "I think we'll move on now, OK?" back at the interviewer.

Freeman claimed Aniston was looking at her dazed "as if shocked that I've broken some code," she wrote, adding: "I feel a little as if I am about to be ejected from the cool girls' table."
