MOBILE, Ala. -

There's a picture on WKRG'S Facebook fan page that has received a lot of attention. It has thousands of "likes" and hundreds of shares and comments.

10-year-old Breanna Bennett and her mother Rocky Smith went to a filming location Tuesday hoping to see movie star Nicolas Cage.

"We asked if we might be able to get to see him, she just wanted a glimpse of him," said Breanna's mother Rocky.

But, Breanna got more than a glimpse With a smile on her face and a wave of her hand, she got a picture with Nicolas Cage.

"She just covers her mouth, drops her mouth and starts waving. Well, when she did that he reached over to the driver and said, 'Stop'. He got out of his car and walked over to me and said, 'May I have my picture taken with your daughter ma'am?," Rocky describe the scene

"I was just thinking…. Did he really just do that?," said Breanna with a smile on her face.

When WKRG posted the picture on our Facebook fan page, it took off. As of 4:00 Wednesday afternoon, the picture had close to 29,000 "likes."

Of course it's neat to have a picture with a celebrity in our hometown, but what most find so endearing, is how nice Cage was to Breanna.

A lot of our fans have commented saying how much it says about his character for making her day, and how nice it was to ask permission to take a picture with her.

"He was nice.. very, very, very, nice," said Breanna.

Breanna also has a special message for Nic.

"I just wanna say thank you for letting me do that."
