This year's "Sexiest Man Alive" could be making a run at the Oval Office.

"I wouldn't rule it out," Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson told Vanity Fair in Los Angeles on Sunday. "It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it's possible. This past election shows that anything can happen."

This is not the first time the world's highest-paid actor has flirted with White House rumors. In March, Johnson tweeted that "maybe one day" he would run for president.


In June, he followed up on Instagram, writing, "I care deeply about our country, and the idea of becoming president to create positive impact and global change is very alluring."


Johnson does have some political experience. In 2000, at the Republican National Convention, he spoke on encouraging young people to vote, regardless of party affiliation. But hey, experience or not, after this past election, anything can happen.
