Dwayne Johnson Tells Stephen Colbert He's 'Absolutely' Considering A Presidential Run

Dwayne Johnson: I Won't Run For President In 2020

"There's no need to have a conversation", Johnson said Thursday on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen".

"Just to put it into context, the Washington Post posted a story and the gist of it was if I were to run I could have a legitimate shot at winning". Like I feel like I, you know what it is?

Johnson was less willing to talk about his ongoing beef with another Furious co-star, Vin Diesel, who Johnson had called unprofessional.

After leaving the WWE, Johnson has starred in huge blockbusters like the Fast and Furious and G.I. Joe franchises as well as hits like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Moana and Rampage.

Johnson eventually belted out the Samoan track, admitting to Colbert: "I will say for the record, I've never looked a man directly in the eye when I sang that". In 2016, he allegedly called the 50-year-old actor a "candy a-" and "unprofessional" on Instagram.

The two actors had a very public feud a year ago (17) when Tyrese slammed Dwayne's decision to push on with a Fast spin-off, delaying the production of the ninth instalment of the franchise.

We also spoke with director Rawson Marshall Thurber about enticing Johnson to do the film's stunts and the movie that influenced his desire to make action films.

"I had left (wrestling), and he had done a series of radio interviews and somebody had referenced me saying, 'Hey, is The Rock, ever coming back?' And he said, 'I'm not quite too sure, ' and I just didn't like how he said it", the Rampage actor explained. Apparently, Johnson is friends with both of them and has been credited for setting up the pair.

"I was very happy for them".

"So when that started picking up, of course when I'm asked - yes, I have incredible respect for our American people and our country - so I said 'Yes, I would consider it, '" Johnson said to Colbert about the possibility of running for office.
