Jamie Lee Curtis invented Instagram, claims the Scream Queens star

Posted on

Jamie Lee Curtis was the original photo sharer: The Scream Queens star told Jess Cagle on Sirius XM’s EW Radio that she “invented Instagram” years before Instagram was even an option. 

Back in 2010, Curtis launched a website where she posted iPhone photos that she and her friends took. “Funny enough, really the day that Instagram was announced is the day that they stop,” Curtis says, “because as soon as that was available, that’s all we did.”
