For Dwayne Johnson, president aspirations are starting to become something that he's seriously considering. The former wresting superstar known as 'The Rock' was no longer taking the run for presidency in jest.

The 45-year-old actor is now placing himself in the President's shoes as he contemplates on how the country would be like if he was elected as its President. According to ET, Johnson shared that "poise" would play an important role when it comes to leadership.

'The Rock' hinted that he would prioritize unity rather than being divisive as he explained that being President means "taking responsibility for everybody." "I wouldn't shut anyone out. I would actually include them.", Johnson added.

Johnson was pretty vocal when it comes to criticizing President Trump's Muslim travel ban as he stressed the point of it being more on dividing people instead of uniting them. The Rock mentioned the aftermath of Trump's travel ban which caused "confusion" and "heartache" to the people.

Furthermore, the Dwayne Johnson President scenario wouldn't be too far fetched, based on his popularity he might even have a high chance of winning. As for the 45-year-old actually running for President in a real life scenario, The Rock teased that "it is a real possibility."

As a matter of fact, this isn't the first time someone suggested the action star to go into politics. According to TheWashingtonTimes, filmmaker Michael Moore even pushed for the Dwayne Johnson president scenario to happen. "Run the Rock! Run the Rock!", Moore added.

While the whole idea of an action star such as The Rock becoming US President seems a bit unrealistic, it's actually not as ridiculous as it seems. Attorney David French shared that Johnson is "one of the few culturally unifying figures" in the country and that he represents the message of "gratitude and hard work." After all, if Donald Trump became president, it's hard to see how the Dwayne Johnson president scenario wouldn't be seen as a plausible one.
