The Rock Interested In Running For President


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is on the cover of the July 2016 edition of GQ British magazine. In a story written by Paul Henderson, The Rock spoke about his thriving movie career, dealing with depression earlier in life, his criminal past and what it’s like being The Rock.

“The Rock was – still is in fact ­- the best role I will ever get to play,” he said. “I was being me, but me turned all the way up to ten. I could say anything, do anything and I would wink and everyone was in on the joke. They got it, I was connecting, it was perfect. But I couldn’t help feeling like I had achieved everything I had wanted to in wrestling. By the end of 1998 I was the youngest world champion and making a lot of money, but I wanted to know what was next.”

The Rock has stated a few times over the years that he could very well follow in the footsteps of WWE Hall of Famer Jesse Ventura and cross over into politics. With the 2016 US Presidential election season kicking into high gear, The Rock says he’s still open to the prospect of being President.

“I’ll be honest, I haven’t ruled politics out. I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale. But there are a lot of other things I want to do first.”
