Every Must-See Picture of the Fiji Water Girl Photobombing Celebrities

The girl became a viral sensation after photobombing many celebrity photos, but Curtis says it was a calculated promotional tactic by the bottled water company.

Jamie Lee Curtis fell victim to America's favorite Golden Globes meme, the Fiji Water Girl, but she's not laughing.

The venerable actress took to Instagram to share her disgust after her husband found her picture on a CNN news story covering the Fiji Water Girl's omnipresence across the Globes red carpet.

"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," Curtis captioned the image of her with the FWG standing behind her holding that tray of water bottles.

"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."

It looks like that choice was taken away from her, as she sees it, and she's not too happy about it. "Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens," Curtis continued. "The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products."

While there were some who attacked Curtis in the comments on her post for complaining about what they saw as a trivial thing, others jumped to her defense and agreed with her stance that celebrities should have some say as to which products they are associated with.

The Fiji Water Girl became insta-famous after photobombing stars like Idris Elba, Judy Greer, Richard Madden and Amy Adams. She even appeared on "The Late Late Show" Monday night where she photobombed James Corden's guest introductions.

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 Wars," "Rocky" and riding in the backseat with "Thelma & Louise."
