BLACK ADAM Star Dwayne Johnson Reveals Why He Won't Run For United States President In 2024

Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson is someone many people would love to see make the leap from Hollywood to the Oval Office, but the pro wrestler turned actor has now revealed why that won't be happening.

Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson is one of the most beloved actors working in Hollywood today. He commands a massive social media following and comes across as incredibly likeable and an all-around great guy. 

It's no great surprise then that there's been talk of him one day running for United States President, following in the footsteps of other popular celebrities who have found their way into the Oval Office. However, The Rock has now confirmed he isn't looking to make the leap into politics in the near future. 

Talking to CBS News recently (via ActioNewz.com), Johnson confirmed he currently has no plans to run for President, explaining that he instead wants to focus on his children. He'd add to that by saying, "being a father to my little girls is the most important thing in my life. To raise 'em and always be there, during these critical years in their life."

"I know what it’s like to not be there all the time as a father, because of an unrelenting work schedule," he continued, presumably referring to his own father, pro wrestler Rocky Johnson. "I won’t let that happen ever again. Choosing parenting over presidency."

Interestingly, Johnson pointed out that, "I’ve been approached by the most influential in politics on both sides of the aisle asking and supporting that I run for President." His previous support for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris suggested the actor is a Democrat, though he clearly has no intention to run for either party. 

Johnson's children will grow up one day, of course, so there's nothing to say he won't eventually change his mind. Right now, that's clearly not on the cards for him, something fans of his work on the big screen - and in the wrestling ring - are likely to be glad of (especially with rumours swirling he's set to face Roman Reigns at next year's WrestleMania).
