Meet the Fiji water girl who went viral at the Golden Globes

The woman in blue emerged as the star of the 76th annual Golden Globe® Awards

Fiji Water Girl Steals The Limelight At The #GoldenGlobes, Netizens Say ‘A Meme Is Born’

A Fiji Water brand ambassador became an online sensation at the Golden Globes on Sunday after repeatedly sneaking into the background of photos as Hollywood royalty showed off their awards attire.

"No, it wasn't (planned), I've actually worked for Fiji in a similar capacity a number of times on red-carpet things".

"There's tons of photographers everywhere". After becoming the first great meme of the 2019 Golden Globes, the water girl created a Twitter account and revealed her true identity.

Either intentionally or unintentionally, Cuthbert became a fixture of red carpet photos and interviews.

Sharing photo evidence that proved that she'd deliberately moved away from the branding, so as not to give anyone free advertising, she added: "Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens".

Since the end of October a year ago , Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen, wife of Norwegian billionaire Tom Hagen , has been missing. Mr Broeske said those behind the kidnap have chosen to communicate digitally and officers have had no other form of contact.

Fiji Water, meanwhile, has been leaning into the viral meme by photoshopping their photobomber into all sorts of iconic images on their Twitter feed, including "Star War", "Rocky" and riding in the backseat with "Thelma & Louise".

Cuthbert, who usually works as a fashion model and commercial actress, said she wasn't intentionally trying to steal the spotlight - but rather her modeling instincts took over. In some shots, she even looked directly into the camera and appeared to be posing! I enjoy the craft of acting, but all the other stuff around it is just noise. (She bought her parents a subscription to the Star for Christmas.) She grew up in North York, and says she comes back often. "[A lot] people are reaching out and just saying that it brightened up the award season for them". Cuthbert, who is now based in Los Angeles, had been hired to represent the company at the Beverly Hills event and serve bottles of water to thirsty celebrity guests. "It's just so amusing to me".

And she doesn't see that ending any time soon.

Fiji Water has been associated with the awards ceremony since 2015.

"There's a lot of stuff coming up", Cuthbert shared. "Be yourself. Keep people hydrated.' Anything else is, I guess, up to you".
