Actor Denzel Washington surprised an 86-year-old grandmother this weekend at her doorstep on Chicago’s South Side.

Cellphone video captured the visit and went viral on Facebook.

Juanita Hubbard, who has lived at East 86th and South East End Avenue since the 1950s, recently moved in with her granddaughter in south suburban Calumet City while repairs were being done to her home.

On Saturday, Hubbard was at her home for a schedule repair when Denzel Washington surprised her. He was driving in the area trying to find Leon’s BBQ, according to the Hubbard family.
