Los Angeles: The historic feat went down at the premiere of his new action-disaster film "San Andreas" in London, where he finally got a chance to flex his arm strength by capturing 105 selfies in three minutes, reported MTV online.
Guinness World Records adjudicator Mark McKinley was on hand to make sure everything was above board and that all the selfie rules were followed, including that the full face and neck of participants was viewable and that the images were focused, with recognisable faces and no blurring.
Celebrating his record breaking achievement Johnson shared another selfie on Instagram and wrote, "We just set a New Guinness World Record for most self portraits (selfies) taken in record time.
"World premiere of 'San Andreas' and rewriting the record books all in one night."
"San Andreas" hits theatres worldwide on May 29.
