'Fiji Water Girl' who went viral at the Golden Globes reveals her tips for photobombing celebrities
The 76th Golden Globes was a pretty amazing event. However, on the day of the ceremony, a new star was born: Kelleth Cuthbert, aka the 'Fiji Water Girl.' In case you've been living under a rock for the last few days, allow me to explain. When pics of the red carpet event hit social media, the general public was left intrigued by the continual appearance of a certain smiling brunette woman, who seemed to be in every photograph. She'd photobomb the celebs by standing behind them while holding a tray of Fiji brand water bottles on a tray.
Needless to say, many people who spotted her were desperate to know who the girl in the blue dress really was. Eventually, it was discovered that the real name of the Fiji Water Girl is Kelleth Cuthbert: a model and commercial actress who just so happened to be at the right place at the right time when the cameras were turned in her general direction. She's now something of a celebrity online and it seems as though she wants others to follow in her footsteps.
In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Kelleth shared her top four photobombing tips with the world. In the video, Cuthbert advises viewers that: "You just want to creep over, always make eye contact, keep it sultry. It's all about the looks, the sultry looks. The Blue Steel! If you're holding something, you want to keep it visible. Keep the shoulders kind of cheated to camera. You just have to look pleasant toward the camera. You know: give them some eyes." Last but not least, she says that a good photobomber should: "Have a little bit of room, you know? A little room to pose, bust out the moves. A little over-the-shoulder."
In another interview discussing her newfound viral fame, Cuthbert stated: "There are tons of photographers everywhere. It doesn’t matter where you stand, you’re in the crossfire of every shot. You’ve gotta have good face, at least, if you’re gonna be hovering in the background frequently. The photographers have to take so many shots, so rapidly. Obviously, your face doesn’t look perfectly pleasant in all of them, so they captured lots of expressions [where I’m] naturally making weird faces. I loved the Jim Carrey one. I love his work. I grew up watching his movies and thought it was a funny thing to find myself in the background of."
Even Fiji Water made fun of the meme on social media, tweeting: "We’re so glad everyone is talking about our water! *senses ominous presence* She’s right behind us, isn’t she? [sic]." So, if you want to become a viral celebrity yourself, then my advice is to get yourself a job handing out hors-d'oeuvres at the awards show of your choice, and take Kelleth's advice to heart. If you wanna make it in showbiz, you gotta learn from the master, right?
