Through his time starring as a college football player, pro wrestling personality, and action movie star, Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson has proven he has a versatile skill-set.
But his most challenging adventure might be yet to come. Rumors have swirled in the past that The Rock might have an interest in a political career someday. The subject came up in a recent interview with British GQ, and Johnson didn't dodge the question.
"I'll be honest, I haven't ruled politics out," Johnson says. "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.
"But there are a lot of other things I want to do first."
Johnson has kept busy lately working on several movie projects, including the eighth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, and a reboot of Baywatch that will take the popular TV series to the silver screen.
He's also been making frequent headlines for his acts of goodwill, which include several instances of spending time with sick children and sharing inspiring stories on social media.
Always told myself back when I was dick broke (old college football term we used 'cause we were all broke as hell) if I was to ever make it one day, I'd wear my success like a t-shirt and not a tuxedo. Proud to still drive my pick up truck daily and pretty damn proud and honored to grace the cover of @BritishGQ.... in my t-shirt. Had a blast shooting with rockstar photographer @gavinbondphotography and GQ's dope Art Director @paulsolomonsgq and a man who I genuinely enjoyed talking with for hours about my life's successes and more importantly opening up about my failures and everything in between - writer @hendogq. To all you guys (the fans) around the globe.. just want to say thank y'all very much. This kinda stuff simply does not happen without you. #BritishGQ #AnHonor #TshirtsOverTuxedos #PickUpTruckMan #NowLetsGetBackToWork
His desire to spread happiness and entertainment seems to be the prevailing theme of his career at this juncture.
"As soon as you start thinking on a global scale, you are making more people happy, you are making more money, you are making the studios more money, you are making everybody happy," Johnson says. "That in turn creates more opportunity. And that's what I am looking for."
Bottom line: Enjoy The Rock's film career while it lasts. But don't be surprised if he follows Ronald Reagan's lead and leaves Hollywood to seek political office.
