Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson admits running for president is a ‘real possibility.’
The 45-year-old actor-and-wrestler believes he has what it takes to rule the United States Of America and has been considering the idea of moving into politics ‘more and more’ over the past year.
The Baywatch actor told GQ magazine, ‘A year ago, it started coming up more and more. There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, “Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.”‘

And the Fate Of The Furious star claimed he would be a confident leader of the United States as he would take ‘responsibility’ for all of its citizens.
He told the fashion monthly magazine: ‘Personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important. Leadership would be important. Taking responsibility for everybody.
‘[If I didn’t agree with someone] on something, I wouldn’t shut them out. I would actually include them.
‘The first thing we’d do is we’d come and sit down and we’d talk about it.
‘We all have issues, and we all gotta work our s**t out. And I feel like one of the qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out. I miss that part. Even if we disagree, we’ve got to figure it out.’
The former pro wrestler doesn’t seem short of support for his dream job, as Ron Meyer, the NBCUniversal Vice Chairman, whose studio produces the franchise, would definitely vote for the actor.
He said: ‘If [becoming the president] is something he focused on … he probably would accomplish it.
‘I think there’s nothing that he couldn’t do. I would vote for him without a question.’
The current President, Donald Trump, also comes from a show biz background as he was the star of TV’s The Apprentice.
And so did Ronald Reagan, who was an actor in such films as Kings Row and Bedtime For Bonzo. He was also married to actress Jane Wyman.
The 45-year-old has been with Lauren Hashian since 2007. He was married to Dany Garcia from 1997 until 2007.
He has two children: Simone Alexandra Johnson and Jasmine Johnson.
The star has been filming Rampage with Malin Akerman.
