Adjust Comment Print

Kelleth Cuthbert is the now-viral model and actress who made headlines by posing in the background of so many red carpet photos from the 2019 Golden Globes. Clad in a tiered blue gown and holding onto a tray with bottles of the high-end aqua, the former social worker seemed to find her way into the background of every celebrity photo - the ultimate A-list photobombs!

Fiji Water, which was founded by Canadian businessman David Gilmour, was one of the sponsors of the awards gala. She's actually a Los Angeles-based model and actress Kelleth Cuthbert.

She posted the photos on her own account, with one photo bearing caption, "Not the worst way to spend a Sunday".

Here are a few of the memes starring the Fiji Water girl.

Fiji water girl photobombed many A-listers and stole their thunder.

In a 2018 interview with fashion blog TorontoVerve, the model with more than 10 years' experience described her previous work in social services before becoming a fulltime model.

"I really am so Thankful to everybody", she wrote. "This really is insane". According to her Instagram bio she is with Wilhelmina models.

The Golden Globe awards were held over the weekend (Jan. 6) and fans were on the look out for iconic red carpet moments and looks.

She's now modeling for Wilhelmina, which previously worked with Kendall Jenner as she first launched her fashion career, The Daily Mail points out.

She was ready for her close-up. The Good Place's Jameela Jamil was jokingly misidentified as a character from her show on the ceremony's red carpet. "It's hard to say where (the viral fame) will lead", Cuthbert said. And she does look at home and completely nonchalant around all the stars, don't you think?

And Olivia Colman proved to be a Twitter fave once again with her acceptance speech for "The Favourite", in which she thanked Melissa McCarthy for sneaking sandwiches in for the hungry attendees, and saucily referred to co-stars Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz as "my b--es".

Talking to CNet, she said, "I've been photobombing since I was a kid". Cuthbert's new Twitter page is filled with photos from previous shoots, head shots, and more, plus some A-plus jokes about being the Fiji Water girl.
