Warren says she'd welcome a Dwayne Johnson presidential bid: 'Who doesn't like The Rock?'

Sen. (D-Mass.) says she isn't afraid to take on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in a White House run, quipping she would "welcome" the wrestler-turned-actor into the presidential race.

"I know he would fight for the principles that he believes in — he’s my kind of guy!" the 2020 presidential candidate told Entertainment Weekly with a laugh of Johnson, when asked about his frequent flirtations with running for president.

The interview focused on one of Warren's favorite shows, HBO's "Ballers," which stars Johnson as an ex-NFL player working as a financial manager for athletes.

“It’s an interesting story that’s different from much of what’s on television,” Warren said, adding: “It tells you something about what it means to live a life dependent on a small set of physical skills.”

Johnson told Vanity Fair last year that he "seriously considered" a presidential bid but ultimately opted not to run in 2020.

“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,” Johnson told the magazine.

But Warren, 70, appeared optimistic about the 47-year-old "Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw" star's chances.

"Who doesn’t like The Rock?" she said. "And I have to say, who doesn’t love The Rock’s wardrobe choices, don’t they just knock you out? Those vests and the pink shirts…Oh man, it is eye candy."
