Halloween Actress Jamie Lee Curtis Slams Sponsors For Fiji Water Girl Promotional Stunt

The 2019 Golden Globe Awards ceremony celebrated all the successful movie and TV shows from the past year. But, there was also something else that became viral during the award show. It was the appearance of a model holding bottles of Fiji water in attendees’ red carpet photos. The Fiji Water girl in the royal blue dress was identified as a Canadian model named Kelleth Cuthbert.

Well, actress Jamie Lee Curtis, who was among the ones photobombed in the Golden Globes red carpet picture by the Fiji Water Girl, wasn’t too happy about the model making her way into so many red carpet pictures.

The Halloween actress, 60, took to on Instagram to express her disappointment over being photobombed for blatant promotions. She insisted that companies should seek permission first before going ahead with any promotional stunts.

In an Instagram post accompanying Curtis’ Golden Globes photo-bombed picture, the actress revealed that her husband was watching CNN when he saw a photo of her with a caption that read that Curtis was in danger of being upstaged by Cuthbert.

So, my husband, who doesn’t look at a lot of show business news sites, just mentioned that I was on the CNN website,” Curtis wrote on Instagram. “I specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji and Moet where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera. I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either. Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens.”

She ended the write-up calling out event sponsors to take permission from stars and celebrities before making them props in their ad campaigns.

The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products.”

Jamie Lee Curtis attended the award show in support of last fall’s Halloween which got a whopping $77.5 million domestic opening weekend. She will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 56th Annual International Cinematographers Guild Publicists Awards in February.
