  • Dwayne Johnson: I Am ‘Absolutely’ Considering Running For President

"I absolutely do, yes", Johnson said as the crowd began cheering loudly to his response.

"So when that started picking up when I'm asked [I say] of course I have incredible respect for our American people and our country". But at the same time, I'm not delusional at all, like I need experience. Like, I feel like I. you know what it is? I need that thing... oh, experience. "So if that were to happen in a 2024, 2028, I would have to go to work and get some experience, you know, and understand policy".

During the interview, host Colbert noted that Johnson must have friends in high places in the White House and referred to a cryptic tweet he had posted in 2011 shortly before U.S. President Barack Obama announced that terrorist Osama bin Laden had been killed. But Colbert had a strong suspicion of who it was.

Dwayne Johnson would need more "experience" and a better understanding of "policy" before making a serious bid for the USA presidency.

"It's Biden, right? Biden told you", Colbert joked.

After enjoying a shot, Colbert asked the actor to sing a song in Samoan because Johnson played a singing Samoan in the Disney film Moana.

"Wait, Stephen, you gotta look me in the eye", Johnson said before they downed the liquor, prompting the two stars known for raising their eyebrows to basically have an eyebrow off.

After serenading Colbert he translated the song, saying, "It means like 'Answer me oh my love, just what it is that I am guilty of".

Johnson added, "I will say I have never looked a man directly in the eye when I sang that".

But that was only the second portion of their lengthy interview.

Johnson, when detailing his family's connection to professional wrestling, explained how his grandmother was the first female wrestling promoter in the history of the business.
