(LOS ANGELES) — Dwayne Johnson arrived on a fire engine with a rescue helicopter overhead at Tuesday night’s Los Angeles premiere of the earthquake disaster flick San Andreas.
Johnson plays a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue helicopter pilot searching for his estranged daughter after an earthquake hits California. But say he was in an actual earthquake — what would he grab before running out the door?
“I would grab by water, my phone and my fanny pack,” Johnson said.
No doubt he’d use the phone to take some photos — While at the London premiere of San Andreas last Thursday, the 43-year-old wrestler-turned-actor succeeded in setting the Guinness World Record for taking the most selfies in under three minutes, with 105.
Co-star Carla Gugino, also at the premiere, had a similar answer: “I’d have to go with flashlights, water, and my dog.”
Actually, they’re both wrong, at least partly. USGS seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones says you shouldn’t run during an earthquake, but rather “Drop, cover, hold on. The Caltech seismologist in the movie even orders somebody out of the doorway and under the table, and that’s the right thing to do.”
San Andreas, also starring Paul Giamatti, Archie Panjabi and Kylie Minogue, opens nationally this Friday.
