American actor and producer Dwayne Johnson , known as The Rock , does not rule out aspiring to the presidency of the United States in the future and said it is “a real possibility” in an interview with GQ magazine published Wednesday, May 10.
“There was a real sense of seriousness, which made me come home and think, ‘Let me rethink my response and make sure that I am giving a true and respectable answer,’ ‘said actor of the action saga Fast & Furious , 45 years old.
The idea came after reading an article in The Washington Post in June that suggested The Rock as a viable candidate for the White House given the political climate of the day when Donald Trump , now president, aspired to lead the country.
After considering the option, Johnson, who according to GQ is the highest-paid actor in the world, confessed that he seriously intends to put aside his prolific career to engage in politics and opt to occupy the White House. “I think it’s a real possibility,” he said.
The Rock , who before being an actor was a popular wrestling catch WWE, is one of the protagonists of the saga Fast & Furious , films that together have collected worldwide more than 1 billion dollars.
