Point Park grads capture picture-perfect moment with Tom Hanks in Pittsburgh | TribLIVE.com

Danette Levers changed her Facebook profile picture at 7:34 a.m. Friday.

There’s a pretty good chance she won’t ever change it again.

She waited for months to upload that photo of her standing next to Tom Hanks. She idolizes the actor. She can recite most of his movie lines from the likes of “Big” and “Forrest Gump.”

Levers finally met Hanks in Pittsburgh. Her best friend Missy Finnell captured the moment in a photo.

Levers wasn’t allowed to upload it until the movie “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” premiered nationwide last week. Hanks plays Pittsburgh’s favorite neighbor, the late Fred Rogers. The connection between Levers and Hanks began when she was 13 years old. Her father had died. She turned to watching Hanks’ films to help her through her grief.
