It's no secret that The Rock loves the great U.S. of A. and is beyond proud to be an American -- He's even toyed with the idea of running for President, albeit not in 2020. 

Speaking to Vanity Fair, he said he has "so much respect for the position. It’s something that I seriously considered. What I need is time to go out and learn.

"It’s a position that requires years of hard work and experience to learn the skills. There’s a lot of ground to cover, and due to my schedule, it’s not possible in 2020."

Well, what can I say? The Rock is one powerful dude. The highest-paid actor in Hollywood, potential future President of the United States, and avid military supporter. Yep, this man can do it all.
