Dwayne Johnson explains why he won’t run for President

What's stopping The Rock getting to The White House?

Wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has explained why he won’t be running for Presidency in 2020. Check out the clip below.

Johnson previously said that he “wouldn’t rule it out” when asked if he would seek to be President, saying: “It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible. This past election shows that anything can happen.”

He also said that he was “flattered” by frequent questions about running, but that it was “time to focus on helping people”.

Appearing on last night’s episode of The Graham Norton Show, the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star said: “There’s been this really interesting uptick in public opinion wanting that to happen.”

He then joked that Jumanji co-star Kevin Hart wouldn’t let a Johnson Presidency become a reality.

“The problem is that [Hart] will completely sabotage the campaign in 2020, 2024,” he said. “He’ll literally sabotage it from the inside.”

“100 percent,” Hart quickly fired back. “I will take you down. I don’t want it to happen because it will make you that much better than me, and I just don’t want it. I would sabotage it in a heartbeat.”

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle – starring Johnson and Hart – hits cinemas December 20.  The sequel to the 1995 fantasy adventure film also stars  Jack Black, Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Nick Jonas, Alex Wolff and Morgan Turner. 

Elsewhere, Johnson has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The actor said it’s a “true true honour”.
