Is Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Running For President In 2020? 5 Things To Know About The Rock

I smell what The Rock is cooking and I LOVE IT!

In Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's latest profile in GQ Magazine, he insinuated a 2020 run for president isn't out of the question.

Say what!?


But this isn't even the first time the idea has been brought up.

Back in November of 2016 (RIP that month—geez), The Rock told Vanity Fair that “I wouldn't rule it out. It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”

Ain't that the truth!

Considering what our options may look like in 2020, I think I already know where my vote is going.

Let's hope all this chatter becomes a reality.

I mean, an actual poll cited the following:

"Johnson would lead Trump 42/37 in a prospective contest, and wins over 15% of people who supported Trump last fall."


But also super exciting.

Dwayne Johnson visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and had more to say on the subject of running for president:

You may know The Rock from his successful wrestling career, but these days you're more likely to find him on the big screen.

Whether he's riding in fast cars or voicing cartoon characters, he's everywhere!

And I'm not complaining ... have you seen him?

He's a gorgeous man, but it's not all about the looks. 

He does charity work, is a wonderful husband and father, and I can guarantee he gives the BEST hugs.

Just sayin'!

Oh, and he's also a minister in the state of California!

So if you're looking to get married by The Rock, you may need to adjust your budget.

Here's some general information about the dude I like to call my future 3rd husband:

Dwayne Douglas Johnson was born on May 2, 1972 in California but was raised in New Zealand, Hawaii and Pennsylvania.

Both his father AND grandfather were wrestlers and when Dwayne told his dad he wanted to be one too, he was all "No way, Jose!"

After some convincing, his father personally trained Dwayne himself.

How cool is that?

Dwayne Johnson is currently in a relationship with Lauren Hashian whom he shares a daughter with.

He also has a daughter from a previous marriage.

Here are 5 awesome facts, trivia and background you should know about Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson:

1. Did you know Dwayne Johnson was in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager?

In the 15th episode the 6th season, IMDB describes the episode:

"Seven of Nine and Tuvok are kidnapped while on an away mission and Seven is forced to fight in their gladiator-like competition or Tuvok will not receive the medical attention that he requires."

One can safely assume without having seen it that Dwayne likely played the part of the gladiator.

That's just a hunch!

2. How Did The Rock lose his virginity?

Because obviously, that's the FIRST thing on everyone's minds, right?

In an interview with Elle to promote his upcoming Baywatch movie, Dwayne revealed the circumstances surround his first time:

“I would not have been in a park. I would have preferred not to have been caught by the cops … We shouldn't have been in the park in the first place. All of a sudden, a big spotlight came on us. Bang. You hear the cop roll down the window and say, "Ma'am, are you okay? Will you come to the car?" She gets dressed, comes to the car. They say, "Are you being attacked?" She says, "No, that's my boyfriend." It was a complete nightmare. [Laughs] Some stories are beautiful, but mine was not.”

3. The Rock actually recorded a song with Wyclef Jean.

What HASN'T this guy done?

Oh, he hasn't been president, yet.



4. Dwayne Johnson had breast reduction surgery.

According to Men's Health Magazine, when The Rock was transitioning from wrestling to acting, he wanted to come off a little less brutish.

So he had breast reduction surgery.

I don't think it hurt his career at all!

5. The Rock almost played Willy Wonka in Tim Burton's remake!

Can you imagine how different the movie would have been without Johnny Depp and with ... The Rock?!

I love Dwayne Johnson but some things are better left to Johnny Depp, like ALL of Tim Burton's films.

It's just something we all need to accept.
