Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Says He Wants To Be President
So it seems that a really popular trend in America is for celebrities to claim that they're going to run for President of the United States and that they're going to be the best one yet.
Everyone remembers rapper Kanye West's declaration to run for presidency in 2020 and of course Donald Trump deciding to leave his business empire to "make America great again" (and actually winning the election last year...).
Well now we have another celebrity putting their hand up for the job and it's none other than Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
The 45-year-old Baywatch actor has admitted that running for President is a "real possibility" and has been seriously considering a career move into politics over the past year.
Speaking to GQ Magazine, Johnson said, "A year ago, it started coming up more and more. There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, 'Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.'"
'The Rock' also stated that he feels confident in his ability to run the country and to take 'responsibility' for all citizens of the United States (and personally we have no doubt that a guy nicknamed 'The Rock' would be an absolutely fearless leader).
"Personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important. Leadership would be important. Taking responsibility for everybody," the Fat of the Furious star continued.
"[If I didn't agree with someone] on something, I wouldn't shut them out. I would actually include them." ( hmm is that a dig at someone in particular..?)
"The first thing we'd do is we'd come and sit down and we'd talk about it.
"We all have issues, and we all gotta work our s**t out. And I feel like one of the qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out. I miss that part. Even if we disagree, we've got to figure it out."
And it seems that the ex-pro wrestler would see a great deal of support on his way to the White House, as the NBC Universal Vice Chairman Ron Meyer has come out and said, "I think there's nothing that he couldn't do. i would vote for him without a question." (mmm us too Ron. Us too.)
Well before we see Dwayne Johnson campaigning for Presidency you can get your fix of 'The Rock' in the The Fate of The Furious in cinemas now or very soon in the latest rendition of Baywatch.
