LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Is The Rock stronger than an earthquake? We find out this weekend, as Dwayne Johnson's new movie "San Andreas" opens. Johnson's had a busy week leading up to the debut of the earthquake disaster movie. He set a "Guinness" record in London for the number of selfies taken in three minutes. Johnson says he didn't even know there was such record. And The Rock isn't about to slack off. He says he officiated at a friend's wedding, then "drank more alcohol in one night" than any other human. But he says he still got up to train the next day.
Alexandra Daddario says she was impressed by Dwayne Johnson's helicpoter-borne entrance at the premiere for "San Andreas."

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan is off the legal hook. For the first time in nearly eight years Lohan isn't on probation. A judge in Los Angeles yesterday signed off on Lohan's community service logs, and determined she completed her sentence. Lohan wasn't in the courtroom for the hearing. This last case stemmed from a reckless driving charge. Over the years, Lohan was briefly jailed five times and sentenced to rehab. Lohan missed a deadline last year to complete her community service. A judge earlier this year ordered Lohan to redo 125 hours of service. Prosecutors said that Lohan claimed community service credit for meeting fans of a London stage play and other questionable activities.
AP correspondent Anthony McCartney reports Lindsay Lohan has completed her sentence in a reckless driving case, and has satisfied all court requirements.
