Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has opened up about his thoughts surrounding future presidential campaigns, and it turns out a lot of people support him…
The wrestler-turned-actor is arguably one of the most beloved men in showbiz…
But I’m not sure how well he’d fare in the Oval Office.
Saying that, we’ve seen worse things happen, haven’t we?
And according to a new poll it seem that most of America is routing for him!
So let’s recap on why he’s so well loved…
1. He’s amazing to his fans!
He spends a lot of time surprising his biggest fans and giving them probably the best experience of their lives.
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!
2. “You can feel him before you see 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!
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.
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.
“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.
“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.
And people have a lot to say…
Despite the negative remarks, a new poll found that 46% of US adults would support a presidential run from Johnson.
The poll, which surveyed more than 30,000 adults, found 29% supported a campaign with Johnson and actor Matthew McConaughey. Another 17% approved Johnson running on his own.
On Saturday, Johnson posted on his Instagram stories…
Admitting that the results were ‘”humbling.”
“I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack-wearing guy joining their club – but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people.”
Fellow celebrities, such as Big Sean and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, also voiced their support of Johnson…
He actually told British GQ in 2016 that he hadn’t ruled out a career in politics.
“I’m not being coy when I say that, but at the moment I am not sure. I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring.”
“And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale,” Johnson said.
In February, he even said he’d “consider a presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted.”
And his WWE friend, The Undertaker, said Johnson could be “the uniter that people are looking for.”
What do you think of a potential President Johnson?
Is it a good idea, or do you think celebrities should steer clear of politics?
