Jamie Lee Curtis outraged that her photo was used for promotional purposes: 'Get permission'
Following the viral picture of Jamie Lee Curtis photobombed by a lady now dubbed the “Fiji Water Girl;” the star actress has come out to project her dislike for what she termed a promotional stunt.
Clad in a deep beautiful blue dress, the unidentified gorgeous woman found a way to make herself known to the paparazzi at Sunday's award ceremony - by photobombing almost every red carpet shot.
So, I specifically moved away from the blatant Fiji & Moet promotions. I knew there was a photographer poised & I moved as I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either. The sponsors of events need to get permission from people before they try 2 take their picture with them. pic.twitter.com/MudU1bwwtM— Jamie Lee Curtis (@jamieleecurtis) January 9, 2019
Curtis, 60 may be very well used to concurrently checking over her shoulder for serial killer Michael Meyers; but when she walked the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, she wasn’t expecting to be followed by a young girl named Kelleth Cuthbert.
Cuthbert, a LA based model, stole the limelight during the awards show on Sunday. She expertly balanced a tray of water and graciously photobombed a sizable number of top Hollywood stars; earning her the title “Fiji Water Girl” on various social media platforms.
While Cuthbert was the rave of the internet; Curtis, who stole the spotlight with her white hair at the event, however, didn't buy into the whole photobombing tactics.
Putting up a photo of the scene, the Halloween actress revealed her dislike of promotional stunts. In a Twitter rant, Curtis said;
"So, I specifically moved away from the blatant Fiji & Moet promotions. I knew there was a photographer poised & I moved as I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either. The sponsors of events need to get permission from people before they try 2 take their picture with them."

She wasn't happy about it at all.
"The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products.” - Jamie Lee
Even though all fingers point at the whole incident being a promotional stunt, the model is adamant that the pictures were entirely accidental. Cuthbert who had also photobombed photos of Idris Elba, Eric Lange, and Tony Shalhoub, revealed that the images seemed so because she was “looking at the camera at the right time.”

*senses ominous presence*
She’s right behind us, isn’t she? #FIJIwatergirl
According to her:
“There’s 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.”
Regardless; the stunt has undoubtedly proved to be an advantage for Fiji Water.
