Despite stating last year that he would enter the race for the White House if he had enough public support, Dwayne Johnson said that the option is now “off the table” for the sake of his family, as per reports.


Speaking about the prospect of running for the White House in a teaser trailer from a forthcoming interview, he said, “Yes, it is off the table. I will say this, because it requires a B-side to this. I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy. And the most important thing to me is being a daddy — it is number one, especially during this time, this critical time in my daughters’ lives. Because I know what it was like to be on the road and be so busy that I was absent for a lot of years when my first daughter [was] growing up. At this critical time in their lives, that’s what the presidency would do,” he said.
