At an after party for Richie's 35th disco-themed birthday on Friday, he got a lesson on how to use the popular app, and it was hilariously documented by Hudson on her own account. "How do you find your profile?" Madden, 37, asked in one of the videos.

Hudson gave an update a few minutes later, writing, "Almost there," as Madden revealed he had successfully added his first friend, professional wrestler Chris Jericho.

But after a while, Hudson apparently lost her patience. "I need to go home," the Deepwater Horizon star joked, as she panned her camera over to Richie. "This is gonna take weeks."
