FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Some neighborly hospitality has earned one of Mark Wahlberg’s biggest fans a chance to meet the actor and an invite to the premiere of his new movie.

WFXT-TV repots that when Jackie Becker and her mother, Jean, found out Wahlberg was shooting scenes for the upcoming film “Patriots Day” in their suburban Boston hometown of Framingham, they delivered pizza and cookies to the set.

Jackie Becker is 38 but contracted an infection as a child and suffered severe brain damage.

Wahlberg personally thanked the mother and daughter, who snapped some pictures, including one with Wahlberg’s arm around Jackie.

The actor then invited the pair to the movie’s premiere.

Jackie Becker says Wahlberg is “so gorgeous” and Jean Becker says it was the best day of her daughter’s life.
