A White House with The Rock? Real possibility

Hollywood hunk, Dwayne Johnson would not mind running for president of the United States some day.

The Fast & Furious star revealed in an interview with GQ that putting his flourishing acting career on hold to run for the White House is ‘a real possibility.’

This ambition is thanks to an op-ed on the Washington Post in which the probability of the former wrestling star becoming president was written.

According to the 45-year-old, he found the op-ed fun to read and subsequently considered the idea after giving it some thought.

‘I’d like to see a better leadership,’ he told GQ. ‘When there’s a disagreement, and you have a large group of people that you’re in a disagreement with — for example, the media — I feel like it informs me that I could be better.’

Johnson also revealed how he declined endorsing either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton after being approached by both in the run up to last year’s elections won by Trump.

‘I felt like it would either make people unhappy with the thought of whatever my political view was. And, also, it might sway an opinion, which I didn’t want to do,’ he said.
