Jamie Lee Curtis Slams Golden Globes Over Fiji Water Branding

'Fiji water girl' steals the show at Golden Globes after photobombing celebrity red carpet photos

Aspiring model Kelleth Cuthbert achieved viral fame at the awards show thanks to her expressive looks while handing out bottles of the drinking water, making it into the red carpet photos of some of the night's biggest stars.

The "Fiji Water Girl" was the real victor of the 2019 Golden Globes this year.

"So, my husband, who doesn't look at a lot of show business news sites, just mentioned that I was on the CNN website", she wrote.

By now, you've probably seen plenty of posts about "Fiji Girl", a young lady at the Golden Globes on Sunday who managed to find herself in the background of a good few publicity shots on the red carpet. In the video she starts her speech, "Wow, oh wow, I don't really know what to say".

But since she had no access to social media as she circulated the red carpet, Cuthbert, now widely dubbed "Fiji Water Girl", didn't realize she was becoming perhaps the first meme of 2019 until her work was almost done.

To be clear, Curtis doesn't seem to have an issue with Cuthbert, but instead does not want to be associated with a brand that didn't get her permission.

Either way, "Fiji Water Girl" undoubtedly stole the conversation at this year's Golden Globe Awards and whether we agree with it or not, the press plot is sure to boost her modelling career. As some of Hollywood's most elite members posed for photographers, the Fiji water girl posed a little to the right (and sometimes the left) with a sultry side glance in a very on-brand blue ballgown.

Jamie Lee Curtis may not have been impressed with Cuthbert's bombing skills or the plug for Fiji Water, but one person who did appreciate the hustle was James Corden.

The Golden Globes red carpet was congested with actresses and models - the Fiji Water girl included.

Fiji Water tweeted from its official handle, "We're so glad everyone is talking about our water!" Fiji water's Twitter account even got in on the joke. "It doesn't matter where you stand, you're in the crossfire of every shot", she told People.

She has not let the opportunity pass her by in the days since her five minutes of fame, giving a number of media interviews and appearing on the James Corden show.
