Dwayne Johnson Says Talks About Running For President Could Get Him In "Trouble"


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson seems to be making movie after movie, so it’s hard to even imagine him finding time to just think about running for President. During a recent chat with Entertainment Tonight, the 45-year-old confirmed that he’s been having political meetings and although he never said “yes” to seriously running one day, he also never said “no.”

“This is where you get me in trouble,” Dwayne said. “The meetings are] just really to understand more and to learn more. … The idea running for president has been very flattering that a good amount people have been wanting me to run and, honestly, it’s so flattering, but I feel like the most respectful thing I could do is just learn as much as I could possibly do.”

He explained how running for fice requires a certain “skill set” that you just have to know.

“You have to put in the time — like years and years service, so anyway, that’s where I’m at. I just want to learn as much as I possibly can,” he added, commenting on how great his fans are for even backing the idea. 

In a previous post, Dwayne compared himself to Oprah, so if he’s anything like her he’ll quickly kill these rumours/suggestions and simply state that it’s not in his “DNA.”
