Will presidential candidate The Rock ever go from sitcom plot point to reality? Dwayne Johnson still isn’t fully ruling it out, while acknowledging not knowing “the first thing” about politics or policy.
Johnson spoke with Vanity Fair for a new profile published Tuesday and was asked about the possibility he could one day run for president, something the Jungle Cruise star has teased in the past. After seeing indications that many of his fans are into the idea, he told Vanity Fair he has done a “small amount of research and analysis to see where this comes from and to see what it could look like in the future.” He also said he isn’t ruling out the possibility and that “indicators are all very positive — in, for example, 2024, and in, for example, 2028.”
At the same time, Johnson, who endorsed President Biden in 2020, noted that his “leadership qualities” don’t guarantee he would be a good candidate for the presidency.
