Jamie Lee Curtis Skewers 'Blatant Promotion' Behind Fiji Water Girl

All of this, however, was spectacularly upstaged by an unlikely photobomber, initially known only as the Fiji Water Girl.

But not everyone found the product marketing opportunity to be a fun meme and nothing more. Kelleth Cuthbert stole everyone's hearts and went viral on social media when she was seen photobombing several celebrity photos at the 2019 Golden Globes.

She wrote: "So, I specifically moved away from the blatant Fiji & Moet promotions".

She launches into a "thank you" speech that includes hunky actor Richard Madden ("For giving me my start"), Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans ("For allowing me the space for me to have my best angle") and Nicole Kidman ("I have always wanted to work with you, so thank you").

Her opinion is that even official sponsors of the event should not have carte blanche access to celebrities. Attendees had been showing her the social-media buzz building on their own phones, but Cuthbert says she "didn't understand the scope" of her viral fame.

Curtis slammed the water company Tuesday night after she discovered one of the Fiji Water girls made it into one of the actress' red carpet photos on Sunday.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Cuthbert hinted that it may not have been an accident and that she intentionally helped Fiji steal the show.

"Remember, Fiji Water is not paying one cent for every little Instagram post or Facebook picture with Fiji Water Girl in it, it's free". "You've gotta have good face, at least, if you're gonna be hovering in the background frequently".

But she said whenever she heard the cameras clicking, she was ready. And in doing so, she just happened to position herself in the background of many high-profile photos.

While she may have had an "ominous" appearance, Cuthbert said she really wasn't thinking bad thoughts - or thinking about much at all in the moment as the red carpet was far too fast-paced for that.

In response, Fiji Water fired out a witty tweet which read "We're so glad everyone is talking about our water!"
