WWE star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was arrested in his recent movie “Central Intelligence” with co-star Kevin Hart. Their hilarious team up in the movie immediately clicked. Meanwhile, he recently revealed his desire to run for US presidency.
The wrestler-turned-actor, The Rock’s statement on wanting to run for president is not quite shocking for everyone. A lot of athletes and Hollywood actors became successful in their political career.
In fact, the iconic Arnold Schwarzenegger was once Mr. America who is currently a politician. The same fate goes with the late President Ronald Reagan.
“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,” he said.
“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,” Johnson added.
His words marked a big hope for his fans both in WWE and in the world of Hollywood regarding his future White House bid. According to Toronto Sun, he is now giving a serious thought of delving into politics. In fact, he said during an interview with Good Morning America, his idea on becoming the future US President became legit.
“As time goes on, we’ll take the temperature of the American people and if it is an overwhelming, positive, strong, ‘We want you to run for president,’ and if I felt that I can step up to the place, and become a tremendous leader and make a real difference and make change, I would do it,” Johnson confirmed.
In the meantime, his interesting character in “Criminal Intelligence” made everyone have a lot of fun time and laugh. He played the role as a heavily bullied high school student who became a troublemaker arrested in several occasions. He later turned to be a CIA agent. He co-starred Kevin Hart, a popular kid at school.
