Someone Found A Photo Album With A Woman Next To Hollywood Stars In A Thrift Shop And It’s Like A Time Machine

A thrift shop in Belgium has caused quite a stir on the Internet. People at Opnieuw & Co, a local establishment in Mortsel, discovered an old photo album where a woman posed next to the biggest stars in Hollywood. After they shared some of the pictures, the online community immediately started their investigation. Who was this woman hugging Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Bruce Willis, and other A-list celebrities?

After a while, someone noticed a tag she had in one of the photos. Turns out, the ‘mysterious’ woman is actually Maria Snoeys-Lagler, a former member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). It’s a non-profit organization of journalists and photographers who report on the entertainment industry. The HFPA consists of about 90 members from around 55 countries, and they’re the ones conducting the annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony in Los Angeles every January.

Looking at these pictures, it’s clear that Maria Snoeys-Lagler has met virtually everyone dominating the biggest screens and stages. Or is it the other way around? Maybe, just maybe, there’s a secret club in Hollywood of all the celebrities who have had their picture taken with Maria Snoeys-Lagler?

Probably the biggest HFPA claim to fame is that it founded the Golden Globe Awards. Its members are the voting body that determines who wins. Since the organization is made up of about 90 journalists (and it was reported that membership never surpasses 100 people total), the Globes are overseen by a very small group of people. For comparison, consider that the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who give out the Oscars, has nearly 8,500 members.

That means Maria Snoeys-Lagler was part of a the select few who determine what Hollywood names will go down in history as the most accomplished ones. And when these stars thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in their acceptance speeches, Maria was one of the people they expressed their gratitude to.
