For everyone who is not yet following Busy Philipps' delightful Instagram Stories

We <3 Busy.

LET’S TALK ABOUT the ray of sunshine that is Busy Philipps.

23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals - Los Angeles Source: F. Sadou/PA Wire

You might know the actress from her roles in Freaks and Geeks and Dawson’s Creek, and also for accompanying her best pal Michelle Williams to all the big awards shows.

However, recently she has found new fans on Instagram – more specifically, Instagram Stories. Seriously. People are in love:

It’s hard to distill the exact appeal of Busy on Instagram, but we’ll try. Because we’re in love too.

She is charmingly open and honest in every story

GUYS. I think I found my look for the Oscars!

A post shared by Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) on

One time, she voiced her fears about speaking in front of celebrities like Kim Kardashian at a big event. On another occasion, she admitted that she made more money from sponsored social media posts than acting last year, and that’s just the way it was. Fair enough, girl.

And even though she’s a Hollywood actress, she’s still weirdly relatable

She came home from a night out (the Golden Globes), realised that she locked herself out of the house (wearing an evening gown) and went straight to Instagram to share her woes. Same!

Then there’s the way she starts every video with ‘You guys…’

It’s like we’re in her special group of pals with Michelle Williams. It could be true…

And the pure joy of her holiday ramblings

Busy and her family are currently on a Disney Cruise, and by god if it doesn’t look like the best craic.

She sang Alanis Morissette’s Ironic to approximately six people at karaoke the other night. We know this because she made her husband record it.

Really, we just want to be her mate

She’s gas, but it feels like she’s just being very much herself, which is extremely refreshing these days.

So until we can find away to infiltrate her gang, we’ll keep watching the Stories. You guys…
