(CNN) – Many were hoping that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could be a potential Rock for America, but instead the beloved actor and businessman intends to be a Rock for his daughters.
A presidential nomination is “off the table,” Johnson told Tracey Smith with CBS News Sunday morning.
“I love our country and everyone in it,” the WWE Legend said in an interview. “I also love being a dad. And that’s the most important thing to me, being a dad. Number one, especially at this time, this critical time in my daughters life.”
The Rock is a father to three children: Jasmine Lia, 6, and Tiana Gia, 4, with his wife Lauren Hashian and Simone Alexandra, 21, from a previous marriage.
“I know what it was like to be on the road and be so busy that I was absent for many years,” he lamented.
A 2021 poll admired around the world found that 58% of Americans would have liked to see Johnson as the next President of the United States. In the same poll, 58% said they supported actor Matthew McConaughey.
Last year, the 50-year-old produced and starred in two big films, Jungle Cruise and Red Notice, debuted his sitcom Young Rock, experienced unprecedented growth for his company Teremana Tequila, and became the most followed American man on Instagram.
