Magazine CovHER: The Rock For GQ
The Fate of the Furious actor The Rock covers GQ magazine’s The Comedy Issue. Honestly, I really could care less about what he said during his interview. I just want to sit here and lust at him for just a moment. Okay… Since y’all MAY wanna know what he talmbout, I guess I’ll continue!!!
The Rock covers GQ magazine where he dishes on his life growing up, being in the hood and how he thinks President Donald Trump is doing.
Excerpts and more pics below:
On getting a football scholarship to college:
“We had no money, and my grades were just average,” he says, “so it wasn’t like I was getting [an academic] scholarship. The University of Miami was the top program in the country. They were the national champions. I just wanted to go where I could compete.”
On how he thinks Donald Trump is doing:
“Mmm… With any job you come into, you’ve got to prove yourself. And…Personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important. Leadership would be important. Taking responsibility for everybody. [If I didn’t agree with someone] on something, I wouldn’t shut them out. I would actually include them. The first thing we’d do is we’d come and sit down and we’d talk about it. It’s hard to categorize right now how I think he’s doing, other than to tell you how I would operate, what I would like to see.”
He continues on Trump…
“I’d like to see a better leadership. I’d like to see a greater leadership. When there’s a disagreement, and you have a large group of people that you’re in a disagreement with—for example, the media—I feel like it informs me that I could be better. We all have issues, and we all gotta work our shit out. And I feel like one of the qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out. I miss that part. Even if we disagree, we’ve got to figure it out. Because otherwise I feel, as an American, all I hear and all I see in the example you’re setting is ‘Now I’m shutting you out. And you can’t come.’ [Disagreement] informs us. The responsibility as president—I [would] take responsibility for everyone. Especially when you disagree with me. If there’s a large number of people disagreeing, there might be something I’m not seeing, so let me see it. Let me understand it.”
The Rock has a new movie coming out later this month called Baywatch. Peep the trailer for that below while you’re still here!
