Evan Rachel Wood, Kim Kardashian and Elizabeth Banks are among the stars who admitted to being "scared" by the latest earthquake in Los Angeles.

The 4.7 scale earthquake gave the celebrities a wake-up call, when it hit Los Angeles in the early hours of Monday March 17.

Evan - who is mum to a baby son with husband Jamie Bell - revealed she headed for the doorway when she felt the shakes.

"Earthshake!! My house shook like when the jet engine falls on Donnie Darko. Grabbed my baby and hid under a doorway till it was over," she tweeted.

She later added: "But it was over in a couple of seconds."

Kim, mother to nine-month-old daughter North with fiance Kanye West, wrote: "Earthquake was scary? We're all ok though! Anyone else feel it?"

Elizabeth, who has two sons with producer husband Max Handelman, added: " Earthquake! I leapt out bed to check on the kids. They slept right through it, and couldn't have cared less."

Jack Osbourne wrote: "How's about that wake up call in the form of a 4.9 earthquake?", while his sister Kelly said: "That earthquake just scared the s*** out of me!!!!"

And Transformers star Josh Duhamel joked: "Was that an earthquake I just felt? Or was it Dean Winters stepping on to the set of #BattleCreek for day 1..."
