Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has a long relationship with the idea of running for president of the United States. Dwayne Johnson, known for the "Fast & Furious" series, "Black Adam" and "San Andreas," admitted that he received offers from different parties to run for president.
"The Rock," well known in the world of professional wrestling, was a guest on comedian Trevor Noah's podcast "What Now?". Asked if he was considering running for president in 2024, the 51-year-old actor said he had received offers from different parties.
"It was all very surreal because that's never been my goal. My goal has never been to be in politics," Johnson emphasized. "And in fact, there's a lot about politics that I hate," he noted.
The actor first floated the idea of running for president in 2017, but later said he would not enter politics, citing fatherhood as "the most important thing" for him. In 2021, a poll conducted in the U.S. showed a high number of supporters for the actor's presidential campaign.
"Unfortunately I don't see it happening in 2020," he told Vanity Fair back in 2020. "It's a position that requires years of hard work and experience to learn the skills. There's a lot of ground to cover, and due to my schedule, it's not possible in 2020. I have so much respect for the position. It's something that I seriously considered. What I need is time to go out and learn," Johnson noted.
