Emma Stone and Bill Murray helped a crowd of U.S. military members get into the holiday spirit in Hawaii on Friday (06Dec13) by making a surprise appearance at their annual Tower Lighting celebration.

The pair, who are currently in the state filming an untitled movie, appeared on stage wearing Christmas hats and traditional Hawaiian leis to praise the military and the people who are stationed and working at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam for their support.

Stone told the crowd, "We are so honoured to be here tonight to light up the tree... and thank you for your flexibility and support (while we're filming) because we are having such a great time."

Murray added, "We've had a wonderful welcome here in Hawaii and the people have been so gracious."
