Jamie Lee Curtis blasts Fiji Water for Golden Globes promotions

There were a lot of surprising winners at the 2019 Golden Globes on Sunday, but the show had one clear spotlight-stealer: Aspiring model Kelleth Cuthbert, a.k.a the "Fiji Water Girl."

It's a common enough occurrence at awards shows, but Jamie Lee Curtis wasn't having any of it and this certainly wasn't her first red carpet.

Some netizens urged Fiji Water to make the model its new spokesperson, while others suggested the company seize the opportunity to create an ad campaign around this incident.

And she's been congratulated for being the year's "first meme".

. In her early 30s, Cuthbert says that this wasn't planned in any way - she has worked as a Fiji Water ambassador before and didn't expect anything like this to happen. Why is she serving water on the red carpet? "Nicole Kidman, I have always wanted to work with you so thank you".

The light pink-lipped brunette, wearing a royal blue Marchesa Notte gown, was spotted in the background of several professional photos of celebrities - from Curtis to Idris Elba and beyond - holding a tray of Fiji Water. She posed behind the likes of comedian Jim Carrey, Bodyguard's Richard Madden, model Heidi Klum, Sharp Objects star Amy Adams, and many, many more. "I do love a good meme, so I think it's incredibly ironic and amusing that I'm one now", she told the glossy.

"She was perfectly cast, nearly that Cinderella Disney princess idea that you wanted to believe that some woman handing out water at the awards somehow ended up in the back of all these photos".
