The 46-year-old actor, producer and former wrestler, Dwayne Johnson, caused a media frenzy when it came to light that he might run for President. He has since cleared the air.


It's a topic he discussed before, and while he still feels passionate about the idea of running for President, his schedule is too busy at the moment.

He told Variety on Wednesday that he will not be considering candidateship for the 2020 presidential election. Read more on our Twitter @amomama_usa.

“I don’t see it happening in 2020. It’s a position that requires years of hard work and experience to learn the skills. There’s a lot of ground to cover, and due to my schedule, it’s not possible in 2020.”

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Variety, July 11, 2018.


Johnson added that he has respect for the position and that it's been something he "seriously considered" in the past, but time is needed "to go out and learn."

His acting pursuits are keeping him very busy at the moment, Pop Culture reported. The action film Skycrapper premiered earlier this week and had thus far proved to be a box office hit.


Johnson has just returned from his publicity tour and has several film projects to juggle. He will appear in Jungle Cruise opposite Emily Blunt later this year.

The Fighting With My Family star will reprise his role as Luke Hobbs from Fast & Furious in a spin-off titled Hobbs and Shaw, co-starring Jason Statham.

A sequel to Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is also in the works, as well as a DC Comic film about the supervillain Black Adam, which is currently in pre-production.

For 2020, he has Red Notice lined up, also currently in pre-production, and it was announced that he would appear in Doc Savage and San Andreas 2. The release dates are yet to be decided.
