In Belgium, a thrift shop has caused a quite stir on social media. Individuals at Opnieuw & Co, a local establishment in Mortsel, recently discovered an ancient pictures album where a woman posed next to main stars in Hollywood.
Internet users started an investigation after which they shared some of the photos online. Who is this woman hugging Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Bruce Willis, and other A-list celebrities, an online community queried?
Afterward, somebody noticed a tag she had in one of the
pictures. Turns out, the ‘mysterious’ woman is actually Maria Snoeys Lagler, a
former member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPS).
It’s a non-profit organization of journalists and
photographers who report on the entertainment industry. The association
consists of about 90 members from around the world, leading the yearly Golden
Globe ceremony every January in Los Angeles.
Although, it is clear that Maria Snoeys_ Lagler have met almost everybody by looking at the photos leading the largest screens and stages. Or could it the other way around? Perhaps is there’s a secret club in Hollywood of all the celebrities who has had their photos taken with Maria Snoeys-Lagler?
