Dwayne Johnson open up on his 2020 political ambitions.
Boxer-turned-superstar actor Dwayne Johnson has revealed that he may yet make the jump to politics.
Back in May, The Rock discussed a possible 2020 run in a profile for GQ Magazine and says it’s a possibility.
In a recent interview with Instyle Magazine, he was again asked about a presidential run and he again reiterated his seriousness on the matter.
“This whole thing started with a piece in The Washington Post about a year and a half, two years ago,” he said. “And then, when it started to pick up and got to the point where it was just impossible to ignore, I said, ‘Of course I would consider a run.’ So where we’re at right now is just quietly observing everything happening on the political landscape, and when the next election comes along … I will be watching very intently.”
The Fast & Furious star also opened up on what made him strong and weak.
He said: “Accomplishment makes me feel strong. I’ve been with Lauren for 10-plus years. We’ve had incredible challenges and ups and downs. And in business, you take a swing and you hope that you hit a home run, but sometimes you strike out. Strikeouts and failures are important. Being down, getting punched in the gut every once in a while by life and coming back up, that’s accomplishment.”
He added: “When I’m unable to see a mistake I made right away. Maybe this is my Taurus mentality, but sometimes I don’t see it and I don’t see it and then, before you know it, I finally see it, and I’m like, “How the hell did I not see that? It was right in front of me all this time.” And I have to look at the wake I left behind, the disappointment. That makes me feel weak.”
