A Los Angeles earthquake, a 3.6 tremor centered in Beverly Hills, shook up Tinsel Town, but apparently not much else Monday night.

The earthquake hit four miles northwest of Westwood about 11:20 p.m. Pacific time, the USA Today reported. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

"We get these size earthquakes fairly frequently," Zachary Reeves, a U.S. Geological Survey seismologist, told the Los Angeles Times. "Any severe damage would be pretty unlikely."

Southern California has seen much stronger earthquakes recently. A 5.2 earthquake in June 2016 near Borrego Springs 100 miles east of Los Angeles created a long shaking motion that rattled the west side of the city for about 30 seconds, USA Today reported then.

U.S. Geological Survey reported that the moderate earthquake could be felt throughout the city's Westside and San Fernando Valley, The Telegraph noted.

Monday night's earthquake, though, still appeared to capture the attention of many in Hollywood who went to social media, from supermodel Chrissy Teigen and actors Josh Gad and Jack Wagner.
