Actress Carla Gugino recently stopped by to chat with Ellen about her new movie coming to theaters this weekend.
The movie, “Race To Witch Mountain” is highly anticipated and co-stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson with Carla as Dr. Ellen pointed out, when interviewing Carla that now he’s dropped “The Rock” and it’s just Dwayne Johnson, is that correct?

Buildings crumble as if they are made of powder, bridges collapse, roads turn into gigantic craters. If the visuals – all those high-angle shots of apocalypse in modern American cities – aren't enough to make us giddy, the rumbling surround sound adds to the disorienting effect.Our hero is The Rock, as we are no longer supposed to call Dwayne Johnson.For 10 years one of the world’s most successful professional wrestlers, The Rock, 43, standing 6ft 5in, weighing in at about 19 stone, of part-Samoan descent, started appearing in films in 2000, although he didn’t really become massive there too until joining the Fast & Furious franchise in 2011.Ellen said “no I’ll call him what he wants me to call him.” Carla said “I don’t think he dislikes “The Rock” but yes, that was like a character he played and now he is himself.” Ellen said “now he’s Dwayne Johnson.” Ellen asked Carla “and how was that (working with Dwayne)?” She said “amazing, it was awesome, we had, its funny he’s so incredible with stunts, he’s one of those people who looks like there’s no cutting involved, he can do an amazing stunt sequence and you’re blown away.
