On Friday, Gerard Butler left Camp Pendleton Marines starstruck.

He was on base for a sneak peek of his new movie London has Fallen.

On Monday, we learned more about his interaction with Marines. He was on base earlier in the day. Marines gave him a closer look at their Martial Arts program.

"That was amazing," Butler said. "It was good to watch."

They even challenged him to do his Spartan kick he did in the movie 300.

He smiled, but paused and scratched his chin. He went through with it and did not disappoint.

Then he headed over to the theater where he was surrounded by screaming fans, Marines included.

One female Marine was caught on camera asking Butler to the Marine Corps ball to which he shouted, "Yes! Yes!"

He was impressed by the huge turnout.

"I never forget these moments," Butler added. "That's why we come here."

He should be back in November for the ball.
