Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sat down with PEOPLE magazine, where he discussed the possibility of running for president in the next election.
The pro-wrestler turned actor said that being considered a prospect for president of the United States was a “humbling honor.” The half-Black, half-Samoan star said that he is ” indebted to our great country” for opening many doors for him throughout his life.
Despite a recent survey revealing that 46 percent of respondents would support him running for president, the 49-year-old says that he is “not a politician nor did I ever have political passions.” As far as overseeing the country, Johnson says he’s not certain he’s cut out for the job.
“I’m not sure I even have the patience or resignation to deal with the B.S. that comes with politics and politicians,” he confessed.
However, he has not entirely taken the possibility off of the table, saying that the results of the poll have forced him to “humbly and respectfully stand up, listen and learn.”
Despite what the future may hold regarding his White House endeavors, Johnson is thankful for everything he has accomplished thus far.
“I’m a lucky guy to be in the position I’m in,” he says. “Around every corner, if there’s something that I can do to create an opportunity for somebody to work, take care of their own family, live their dream – that’s the kind of stuff that matters.”
