After just six hours on the photo-sharing platform, the 46-year-old actress – who has shunned social media up until now – beat Jennifer Aniston’s previous record for reaching one million followers in the shortest time.

Jolie reportedly amassed over 1.7 million followers in just one hour.

The actress used her first post to draw attention to the plight of Afghans following the Taliban takeover of the country in the last week.

HUMANITARIAN CAUSE

The Salt star’s first post is captioned to explain that she received a letter from a girl in Afghanistan and the images show some of the letter.

Jolie wrote: “This is a letter I was sent from a teenage girl in Afghanistan. Right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate on social media and to express themselves freely.

“So I’ve come on Instagram to share their stories and the voices of those across the globe who are fighting for their basic human rights.”

Some time later, the actress shared a Time article she authored to her Instagram Stories writing: “The people of Afghanistan deserve so much better than this – my op-ed for @time.”

After three hours, the director had gained 2.1 million followers.
