Now, it was previously reported that The Rock has become the highest paid actor in Hollywood. Now after achieving the accolade the former WWE champion wants to have a shot to the spot for President of United States of America.
The happenings started regarding this with the Rock sharing a post on his social media account which indicated reasons for why he should have a run for the President of America. Here is the post:
Cool piece on why I should run for President. Maybe one day. Surely the White House has a spot for my pick up truck..https://t.co/JpkZ4w1eh3

Initially, people would think that matching with his Hollywood star image he was just fooling around the fact. However, that got shattered when he recently appeared on the Good Morning America show and was asked further about the post. He was also asked if he has serious ambitions to be the American president, one day. All the answers came in a positive manner as he quoted:
“Well it’s very real, The idea of me becoming President one day has become a legit thing to some people. As time goes on, we take the temperature of the American people. If it is an overwhelming, positive, strong ‘we want you to run for President’, and if I felt that I can step up to the plate and become a tremendous leader and make a real difference and make change, I would do it.”
With that being said, it is now legitimate that we should not be surprised if we see the biggest star campaigning for him one day for the President spot. With his millions of fans, he one day may very well become the most powerful man on the planet.
Earlier this month, Forbes has published the list of top 100 highest-paid celebrities of 2016 and The Rock is in the 19th position. According to them, he will be earning $64.5 million in the year which officially cements the first spot among the Hollywood fraternity. The superstar will next be seen in Baywatch movie co-starring Bollywood heroine, Priyanka Chopra.
