Hollywood superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has disclosed that he has been approached by multiple political parties to run for President of the United States next year. Although Johnson is known for his roles as an actor, producer, entrepreneur, and wrestler, some fans have suggested he should add politician to his list of accomplishments, even running for president.
In an interview on Trevor Noah’s What Now? podcast, Johnson shared that several parties were interested in exploring the possibility of him running for president. He was moved and honored by their interest, but he was also surprised as politics has never been his goal. He also expressed some disdain towards politics in general.
Johnson revealed that he was approached “out of the blue” and shown relevant polling and research about how he would fare if he were to run for president. However, in a 2022 interview with CBS Sunday Morning, he stated that his duties as a father take precedence over any political ambitions.
Besides his various career pursuits, Johnson’s long-awaited DC superhero movie, Black Adam, was released over a year ago. Although there were hopes for sequels and spinoffs, those plans have been put on hold now that James Gunn and Peter Safran have taken over the DC Universe. Johnson is set to return to the Fast and Furious franchise with a cameo in Fast X and will also join Marvel actor Chris Evans for the Christmas action movie, Red One.
