The Rock, Caitlyn Jenner... These celebrities who look towards politics

PODCAST - Dwayne Johnson, Caitlyn Jenner or Matthew McConaughey would consider entering politics. Celebrity, a new royal way to reach the highest positions?


Would fame be the new master card of American politics? One thing is certain: show business and politics have always gone hand in hand. Americans like this association, which has already given two presidents. Ronald Reagan had a career in Hollywood before entering the White House in 1981. And Donald Trump was already well known, thanks in particular to reality TV, when he broke into the political arena in 2015.

The Rock, Caitlyn Jenner... These celebrities who look towards politics - The Chris TDL PostToday, it is actor Dwayne Johnson, aka "The Rock", who would target the White House. Caitlyn Jenner, from the Kardashian family, has a look at California. And actor Matthew McConaughey (True Detective, Interstellar) would have views of Texas. Is being famous now the royal way to do politics in the United States?

Another actor is in any case the perfect example. After a career in action films, Arnold Schwarzenegger succeeded in 2003 in becoming governor of California. The "Golden State" is also the land of choice for stars who want to get started. Many live there. Dwayne Johnson recently said: "I will consider running in the presidential election if that was what the population wanted".

According to a recent survey, 46% of Californians surveyed would already support it.
