The major movie star was seen spending time in a town in Minnesota last year and it looks like he visited again over the weekend.

Last summer the big movie star Gerard Butler was spotted spending time with locals in Rochester, Minnesota. Two officers from the Olmstead County Sherriff's Office were working at a local fair when they spotted Gerard Butler. Of course, they had to take a picture with the '300' star. You can see him smiling and hugging the two officers in the photo:

I love that they used the photo as a recruitment opportunity. Apparently, quite a bit of people saw the movie star out and about in town. From local restaurants like the Bleu Duck and Kathy's Pub to other local events.

No one knew why he was in town, but a lot of people speculated that he may have been doing work with the Mayo Clinic, as many celebrities do.

Turns out, he was back in the same town again over the late January weekend. The Rochester restaurant Nupa, shared a pic of the actor that said "We are honored to serve Leonidas, King of Sparta, this past weekend."

Nupa is a casual option for Mediterranean Cuisine. Again, there is no official word why he is back in the Minnesota town. Maybe he just loved it so much, or maybe he was doing more work with the Mayo clinic.

Butler's newest movie out is the action thriller 'Plane'. The movie is about a pilot who saves passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island. The only person the pilot can count on for help is an accused murderer who was being transported by the FBI. Check out the trailer below:

Many of the actresses in this story not only made a name for themselves through their collection of iconic performances, but also through the selfless, philanthropic nature with which many of them approached their stardom. In an age of flipping the script on societal norms, many of these actresses are using their voices and platforms to be advocates for those who are otherwise unheard.
