>> The sexiest man alive. That pinnacle of male beauty and annual people magazine marketing tool this year going to Dwayne Johnson otherwise known as The Rock. But it seems he has even greater ambitions. The former WWE wrestler turned actor saying this week he may run for elected office, confirming months long rumors.

Would that include a White House bid? The Rock telling Reuters, quote, if I felt like I could be an effective leader for us and surround myself with really high quality leaders then sure, I would. If Johnson does take on politics he would be following another pro wrestler, Jesse the Body Ventura, who served as Governor of Minnesota and bodybuilder turned action star Arnold Schwarzenegger who served two terms as Republican Governor of California.
