While Aniston appreciates Instagram for its ability to connect people, she's also privy to the damage it can do. "I've heard from people who research this sort of thing that the amount of depressions and mental illness has been on the rise, and the big culprit is social media," she said. "Unfortunately, because it's abused, it's done is the exact opposite of bring people together and has completely polarized people. And sadly so, the comparing and despair, and the trying to live up to an image that's Photoshopped. Photoshop has been in magazines, but those were supermodels and something fun for us to look up. Now, you are the person in the pictures."
She continued, "Kids are sort of growing up building their self-esteem and their confidence and their ability to connect with people through a cell phone and through these false channels, I just worry it's going to pay a price, and we'll see what that is."
