The Golden Globes Fiji Water Girl Speaks Out After Going Viral

As it turns out, she's not a celebrity or a protestor. Kelleth Cuthbert, as she was expertly tracked down by The Cut, was the anonymous (but expertly posed) presence holding a tray of Fiji Water in the background of nearly every red carpet photo from last night.

Despite the "ominous" appearance, Cuthbert said the red carpet was actually too fast-paced to be focusing on your face constantly.

After her gone-viral photobombs, Cuthbert spoke with Glamour about being an overnight Internet sensation, saying, "I do love a good meme, so I think it's incredibly ironic and amusing that I'm one now".

And, of course, she didn't have a boring Sunday at all. 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.

Glenn Close may have snagged the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama movie and Christian Bale won for best actor in a comedy.

The internet can't stop talking about Fiji Water's red-carpet representative, a pretty brunette 30-something who Glamour identified as Toronto-bred Kelleth Cuthbert.

Cuthbert is married to photographer Christopher Von Steinbach, who commonly shoots for Playboy Magazine. Sharing a screenshot of one article with the title "Forget the Celebs, Fiji Girl is Doing the Absolute MOST at the Golden Globes", she wrote, "DEAD", along with a tears of joy emoji.

The actress took to Instagram on Tuesday night to slam the company for their "blatant promotion" at the 2019 Golden Globes. "The first meme of 2019, apparently!" "I think I just got put in the best location of the night".

"I didn't realize it 'til several hours after it happened when people started coming up to me showing me their phones", she shared.
