Journalists questioned Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson about potential presidential aspirations during his visit to Capitol Hill to confer with senators.

While posing for photos with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Johnson faced inquiries such as, "Are you running for president?" and "Do you plan to run for president?" However, he chose not to address these questions.

Last week, Johnson revealed on Trevor Noah's What Now? podcast that in 2022, he had discussions with political parties inquiring about his potential candidacy for the presidency. He mentioned this as an unexpected and notable event, yet he didn't specify the parties involved. His representatives declined to offer further comments. Johnson has previously mulled over a presidential bid but expressed reluctance due to his wish for increased time with his daughters.

MSNBC reported that Johnson's discussions with lawmakers centered on his efforts to bolster military recruitment. Senators present included Mark Kelly, Tammy Duckworth, Lindsey Graham, and Jon Tester.

Additionally, director Christopher Nolan was spotted at the Capitol, noted by HuffPost's Igor Bobic. Nolan was in Washington, D.C., to receive an award from the Federation of American Scientists.
