But don't even think of calling her a newbie to the Instagram world. Garner is already crushin' it with her first post — a cheeky little video encouraging everyone watch to press that follow button.

I am officially on Instagram! So, please follow me because isn't that how this works...? Xx, Jen

A post shared by Jennifer Garner (@jennifer.garner) on

She starts with a cheesy joke: "Summer is almost over. Don’t be sad because sad is DAS backward and DAS not good."

And then Garner ends with a message for all: "I am officially on Instagram, so please follow me because isn’t that how this works…"

If only it were as easy as asking for us small folk.

However, Garner is an A-lister, so she's already got 190,000 followers.

She's also already using her Instagram for a good cause. The link in her profile takes you to a Hurricane Harvey relief fund page hosted by Save the Children.

Can her #TBTs please just be a running list of Alias references?

Garner said in a 2014 interview that she had stayed away from social media because "I don’t want any more guilt coming from my phone or computer. I have the hardest time answering emails, anyway, so the last thing I want to feel is indebted to my phone or computer. So it’s time."

She added, "And the other is, what would I Instagram that people would want to see? There is nothing I would put out that people would want to see. It’s probably best to stay away. They don’t want to see me and my mom friends after kindergarten drop-off."

I guess Garner decided it was worth the time. And about that kindergarten drop-off: I would tune in for that. It sounds adorable.
