Dwayne Johnson Rocks The Selfie Record At ‘San Andreas’ Premiere After Officiating A Wedding
Dwayne Johnson, the Rock, became the selfie king Thursday as he walked the red carpet at the world premiere of his latest movie, San Andreas.
Johnson rocked the crowd along with co-stars Kylie Minogue, Alexandra Daddario, Carla Gugino, and director Brad Peyton.
To claim the world record, the Rock had to take more than 75 in focus pictures of himself and companions with his own hand in three minutes. Each photo needed to show the head and shoulders of his companions.
Afterward, a Guinness official declared the Rock had actually taken 105 photos.
The Rock told the Daily Star he couldn’t have done it without the crowd’s help.
“I gotta say thank you so much, I could not have done it without everyone who was helping me. I appreciate it but I came to London to break a record, and London we broke a record.”
The premiere marks the continuation of the movie’s marketing campaign.
The Rock told the Standard he and his co-stars had stopped promoting the movie after the Nepal earthquake.
“When I found out what happened in Nepal, I was heartbroken. We all felt collectively the best thing to do was to pause for a second with the marketing campaign.”
That’s not the only stunt the Rock has been involved in. Saturday, The Rock officiated over a surprise wedding for super fan comedian Nick Mundy.
The comedian thought he was interviewing the Rock for a San Andreas promotional junket when the star showed up in a tuxedo to conduct his wedding, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“My first thought was, ‘Oh shit, oh shit. I hope Dilara is cool with this. The second one was, ‘I have hat hair, I’m sweating and wearing American flag pants.’ And then my best man and writing partner threw my jacket on me, and the next thing I know, the Rock was walking me down the aisle and the music was starting and I signed the marriage license. The whole thing was insane.”
The Rock’s new movie, San Andreas, opens in the UK May 28.
It’s the future story of the great California earthquake that destroys much of the West Coast. In the action-packed thriller, Dwayne Johnson, the Rock, must fly across the doomed state to rescue his daughter and avoid collapsing skyscrapers in the process.
The movie is set to open in the United States on May 29.
