After last week’s premiere of her new film Blackbird, Mo’Nique took photos with fans outside New York City’s Schomburg Center. But while almost anyone can nab a photo with a celebrity, real fans can work their way into even better souvenirs—like sandwiches and cash.

When he mentioned he was headed “to the store to get a sandwich,” Mo’Nique walked the 10-year-old to a bodega a block away and bought the lad some lunch. She then reached into her wallet and left the boy with “a wad of twenties before exiting the store.”

The report by Page Six failed to include several important details, including the type of sandwich ordered and whether or not the kid asked Mo’Nique, “So what has been going on since your Oscar win, anyway?”
