Action star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson called the prospect of running for president “very alluring,” after an opinion piece was published saying that he might have a chance of winning.


“More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read,” Johnson wrote in an Instagram post earlier this week, including a section of the Washington Post article. 

“I care DEEPLY about our county ... and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring.”

The actor has hinted at running for office before. 

"I'll be honest, I haven't ruled politics out,” Johnson said in an interview with GQ earlier this month.

"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.”
