When we first heard the news that a celebrity broke a selfies world record, we immediately thought... Kim Kardashian. With a whole book coming out of her selfies, that - to us - would have been a given.

But interestingly enough, it was Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who added this surprising accolade to his work experience. 

The former wrestler turned action star, 43, is now a Guinness World Record holder with the title of Most Self-Portrait Photographs (Selfies) Taken in Three Minutes. Beat that, Kim K!

The Furious 7 star championed this effort at the UK premiere for his upcoming disaster movie San Andreas, snapping selfie after selfie with countless fans on the red carpet outside London's Odeon Leicester Square.

For his 105 selfies in three minutes, the Guinness World Records organization celebrated Johnson's achievement by confirming his official win.

We wondered though... what were the requirements to make this world record even happen?

"Guinness World Records adjudicator Mark McKinley ensured that selfie rules were followed, with requirements including the full face and neck of participants being viewable and that the images were focused, with recognizable faces and no blurring," the group's official website read. "Several selfies were disqualified, but a total of 105 were accepted to achieve the record title." 

The Rock himself celebrated the new title on - well, what else - social media! Instagram to be exact.

"I have just broken a Guinness Book of World Records for the most selfies of all time. London, we did it!" he gleefully states in the Insta video. 

The Hercules star is not alone in his epic selfie game as he joins other related winners in the Guinness Book of World Records, including Patrick Peterson, who holds the title of Most Self-Portrait Photographs (Selfies) Taken in One Hour, and Atasun Optik, who has the honor of Largest Online Photo Album of Self-Portrait Photographs (Selfies).

Johnson earned his Guinness World Record title two days after he received another honor. On Tuesday, May 19, the actor received a spot on the walkway outside of Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre, leaving his (big) handprints in the historic cement.
