Crowds gathered about on the sand to watch the stars on a giant screen set up for the event, while the cast walked on a giant, elevated stage.
A few actors like Alexandra Daddario (who costarred with The Rock in “San Andreas”) documented the craziness on their social media accounts.
MTV’s Josh Horowitz emceed the ceremony and talked with the movie’s stars including Alexandra Daddario, who wore an amazing sequinned silver dress; Jon Bass, who joked about certain body parts (you’ll have to see the flick to understand); Zac Efron, looking cool in a throwback suit; Priyanka Chopra (“Quantico”), also in sequins; and of course The Rock, who stars as lead lifeguard Mitch Buchannon.
The original Mitch from the ‘90s hit TV show was there too: David Hasselhoff, who said he was proud of the way The Rock took on his character in the rebooted version because he’s “a real guy.”
Also on board but not doing interviews: the one and only Pamela Anderson, who looked fit and fab in a long gown. She played sexy lifeguard CJ Parker in the original. She was seen chatting with Kelly Rohrbach, who plays her in the movie.
“It’s so cool that I get to be with such an icon,” said Rohrbach. “I grew up watching ‘Baywatch,’ so this is bizarre and crazy and great.”
The Rock was in a festive mood, laughing and joking with the crowd.
“Did someone just faint?” he yelled, pointing to no one in particular.
Then Horowitz put the megastar on blast.
“Should we announce your candidacy?” said the MTV personality, referring to The Rock’s article in GQ stating a run for the White House was a “possibility.”
Johnson deftly replied: “I’m announcing ‘Baywatch’ is going to come out.”
Another hard question: “Who would you want to save you from drowning?”
“It’s going to have to be David Hasselhoff. The Hoff. Mustache and all.”
The Rock then gave a shout-out to his fans.
“I have a special place in my heart for a city I arrived in when I just 18 years old,” he said. “Have fun, guys! I love you!”
