The world might have seen enough disaster movies in the last 20 years, but we are willing to make an exception when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is leading the charge to save the day. The mega movie star recently broke a Guinness world record for capturing over a hundred pictures in three minutes. The actor broke a selfie record on the red carpet of the premiere event of his new movie “San Andreas“. It turned out to be a very nice event for excited movie fans who lined up to be a part of the record attempt.
It seems fairly easy to break the record but photos had to be focused with recognizable faces and no blurring in order to qualify. The requirements included showing the full face and neck of participants. Some of the pics were disqualified but the buff movie star managed to score a total of 105 eligible selfies, enough to break the previous record.
Johnson said while showing off his certificate on Instagram:
“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,”
“We just set a NEW GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for most self portraits (selfies) taken in record time (yup, a selfie world record exists and your arm gets a helluva workout). WORLD PREMIERE of SAN ANDREAS and rewriting the record books all in one night.#MicDropBoom #NewSelfieKing #LONDON #SanAndreasWorldTour MAY 29th.”
Rock was joined by co-stars Kylie Minogue, Carla Gugino, and Alexandra Daddario at the special screening taking place at Odeon Leicester Square on Thursday, May 21 in London, England. The action-adventure disaster film directed by Brad Peyton is set to be released on May 29.
