President Obama says he sees a resemblance between himself and beefy pro-wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — with one slight difference.
“I have a little more hair,” Obama told the audience at Sunday’s taping of the annual “Christmas in Washington” concert.
“Dwayne is tough as nails on the outside,” Obama told the crowd at downtown D.C.’s National Building Museum, but “he is a big softie on the inside.”
Citing the “SNL” skit and comparing himself to the brawny entertainer, Obama quipped to laughter, “You can see the resemblance.”
The unlikely pair might have something in common too: Johnson, 42, has expressed an interest in trading Hollywood for Capitol Hill.
“Right now the best way that I can impact the world is through entertainment,” Johnson said in 2012. “One day, and that day will come, I can impact the world through politics.”
