300 star Gerard Butler has given the comic book geeks the seal of approval after they passed up the chance to claim his watch and glasses as souvenirs.
The Scot was at this year's (08) Comic-Con in San Diego, California promoting his new Guy Ritchie film RocknRolla when he suddenly realised his expensive timepiece and sunglasses were missing.
At first he believed rabid comic book fans had picked up a couple of extra souvenirs - at his expense.
He says, "It was madness... I was signing posters and my watch kept catching on them, so I took it off and put it between my legs and then walked off.
"And then I thought someone stole my sunglasses."
But Butler didn't take comic book fans' code of conduct into account - the items were turned in to event security by fans.
He adds, "This place is great."
