Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is continuing his string of kickass roles on the big screen. After the record breaking release of Furious 7, The Rock is now starring in the new disaster flick, San Andreas.

When a 9.6 magnitude quake rocks Los Angeles and San Francisco, Johnson, who plays a rescue-chopper pilot, maneuvers his way through LA to save his daughter who is fighting for her life in Fog City.

“It was a lot of fun but it was also a lot of hard work,” The Rock told us about shooting the film. “The  challenge comes in because it’s the biggest earthquake of all time. There’s the challenge of visual effects, practicality, shooting on location, San Francisco Bay, Downtown San Francisco. There was a lot of challenging elements.”

And for actress Carla Gugino, who plays Johnson’s estranged wife, shooting this film was a challenge for other reasons. Gugino, who experienced the 1994 earthquake in Northrdige, Ca, tells HipHollywood that maneuvering her way through the natural disaster in the film brought up several emotions. “I certainly thought about that a lot,” she said.

Gugino said she also thought about her time living in New York during 9/11. “That also really came to mind so often in this movie for me because that was a real wake up call in regards to just not sweating the small stuff.”

San Andreas hits theaters May 29.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
