1. She is a professional model
Yes, she has worked for various famous agencies and currently, she’s working with Wilhemina, the same agency that Kendall Jenner worked with at the beginning of her career. Well, after the Golden Globe stunt, it is not strange for Cuthbert to follow Kendall’s steps.
2. She’s well aware of the fact that she’s a meme and seems to like it
Talking to Glamour the model revealed:
I do love a good meme, so I think it’s incredibly ironic and funny that I’m one now. The first meme of 2019, apparently! This is something I would go viral for. I feel like I’ve been photobombing people since I was a kid. A couple people came up to me and were like, ‘Fiji’s going viral’. I thought maybe I’m in the background of a couple shots.
3. She actually didn’t plan to photobomb anyone
She calls it a misunderstanding, as she explained:
I never said that. I just stand where I’m told, wherever there is an opening. Everyone has their work or event persona. You try to look at least somewhat pleasant and not have a too much-resting bitch face. You have to look somewhat friendly and happy to be engaging with people.
Sometimes you’re caught between a lot of cameras, so there’s a lot of photographers at different angles. You’re just kind of trapped sometimes. See that’s the thing: I feel like I was looking away, but sometimes I was looking so I could move out of the way.
4. She’s from Toronto and she used to be a social worker
Although the 30-year-model lives in Los Angeles now, she’s originally from Toronto. She’s a former social worker and she specialized in mental health and addictions. Now, her career is completely focused on the modeling world.
5. She would love to get an acting role and be among the Hollywood stars
Talking about her sudden fame, she said:
I would love to get an acting role. That would be amazing. I definitely think I’m ready for [the fame], but such is the nature of the Internet that these things just go by in a flash.
6. She is married
Daily Mail reports that the model is married to the photographer, Christopher Von Steinbach, and she met him during her photo sessions related to work.
However, one thing is for sure: Kelleth not only became the talk of Hollywood but also a new sensation in the social media world. She even got the title “the first meme of 2019”.
Cuthbert was one of the four girls working for the brand that Sunday and for sure she represented the company in the best way possible. The Fiji water company even shared some of her best-photobombed photos and called her ‘Best Supporting Actress in every picture’ on their official Instagram page. She got all the attention, I tell you!
