Really, Dwayne?


Though the wrestler-turned-actor is arguably one of the most beloved men in showbiz, I'm not sure how well he'd fare in the Oval Office.

But hey, we've seen worse things happen, haven't we?


So, just to remind you of Johnson's sheer awesomeness, here's a list of why he's so brilliant...

1. He's amazing to his fans!

And most of them would risk their lives to get a picture with their favorite celebrity. On multiple occasions, people have stopped traffic to try and get close to him!

In an article by Rolling Stone, director Brad Peyton said: "There’s a buzz in the air – a rumble. Maybe that rumble comes from the fact that he’s 250 pounds of muscle, I don’t know. But when he walks on set, there’s a definite sense that it’s game time."

3. He eats a lot!

It might be a weird thing to love him for, but listen to this!

The Rock has a daily diet that consists of 5,165 calories! This comes out to 7 meals a day!

This is the real-life "Man vs Food!"

His "Cheat Day" consists of: "Chocolate chip & peanut butter cookies with Oreo cookie ice cream, 1 slice of cheesecake, 1 big ass chocolate fudge cookie with salted caramel chips."

You could never devour this sugar infested meal like The Rock could.


4. He 's one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time.

From epic storylines to fierce battles in the ring, The Rock has given us some of the best WWE matches in history.

If you haven't watched The Rock demolishing his opponents in the ring, then you're really missing out.

His most dramatic rivalries include the likes of John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

5. He takes care of his mom.

This one tugs at the heart-strings quite a bit.

In a Facebook post, he revealed this:

"At fourteen, I saw my mom crying about our only car being repossessed. This felt good. Merry Christmas, mom." If you don't love him already, then you need to go and see a doctor. I think you're missing a heart.

6. He doesn't take himself too seriously.

You only have to watch one of his interviews to realize that, or take a look at his Instagram page, which is equally as uplifting...

7. And, last but certainly not least, he's a great father.

Dad to 3 girls, Johnson spends as much time with his daughters as he can, despite his busy schedule.

After the birth of his third child, he posted this on Instagram:

"Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia's delivery, it's hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there."

Have you ever read something so heartwarming?

His little family is just too cute for words...

But can you picture them as America's First Family?

The actor has long been touted as a future presidential candidate...

But it seems that after Trump proved that you need no political experience to win an election, he's seriously starting to consider it.

Speaking to USA Today on his new show, Little Rock, he touched upon the highly-discussed topic of presidency:

USA Today

"I would consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted."

"Truly I mean that, and I'm not flippant in any way with my answer."

USA Today

Wow, so he definitely isn't joking.

But he stressed that he will only be running if it's truly what the people want.

USA Today

"That would be up to the people... So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground."

What do you think of a potential President Johnson?

Or do you think, after Trump's performance, celebrities need to steer clear of politics?
