If you've ever creeped on an ex's social media, don't worry: You're in great company. Jennifer Aniston just did exactly that on April 5, when she surprisingly popped into her ex-boyfriend John Mayer's Instagram Live.
Here's what happened: Mayer was filming his weekly IG Live show, Current Mood, on April 5, specifically discussing the recent passing of Bill Withers, the iconic singer behind hits like "Lean on Me" and "Ain't No Sunshine." Mayer was friendly with Withers and joked that 100% of the things the icon said were useful while only 4% of what he (Mayer) says is useful. That's when Aniston came in with a comment.
"For as long as I have been a fan of his or knew him personally, I never saw the man compromise on his principles. Ever," Mayer said on his IG Live. "And that’s just more to take. That’s just more to take. Whether he was speaking to you or speaking to an interviewer 15 years ago, 14, 13 years ago, everything he said is useful. Four percent of the things that I say are useful. One hundred percent of the things he said were useful."
To that last remark, Aniston replied with four laughing emoji, which, of course, the internet captured for eternity. See it for yourself, below.
Truly, is there anything more relatable than Aniston watching Mayer's Instagram Live? (The couple dated from 2008 to 2009.) In this era of self-isolation and social distancing because of the coronavirus, people get bored. And what do you do when you're bored? Insta-stalk your exes, obviously. Aniston really is just like us.
On her relationship with Mayer, Aniston told Vogue in December 2008, "He is a wonderful guy. We care about each other. It's funny when you hit a place in a relationship and you both realize, We maybe need to do something else, but you still really, really love each other. It's painful. There was no malicious intent. I deeply, deeply care about him; we talk, we adore one another. And that's where it is."
