Will Smith Would Consider Running For President In The Future

Will Smith has opened up about the possibility of venturing down a political path when it comes to his career - maybe even running for president one day.

Speaking on the Pod Save America podcast, hosted by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor, the Bad Boys actor spoke about potentially running for president in the future. Could you see the Smith family in the White House?

The 52-year-old told the show: "I think for now, I'll let that office get cleaned up a little bit and then I'll consider that at some point down the line.


"I don't know, it's like, I absolutely have an opinion, I'm optimistic, I'm hopeful, I believe in understanding between people.

"I believe in the possibility of harmony.

"I will certainly do my part, whether it remains artistic or at some point ventures into the political arena."

Well, the future of US politics is looking juicy if this is anything to go by.

Who knows, Smith might even be in the running alongside Dwayne Johnson, who said if it's what people want he would consider being a future candidate.

Johnson, 48, told USA Today: "I would consider a presidential run in the future if that's what the people wanted.

"Truly I mean that, and I'm not flippant in any way with my answer.


"That would be up to the people... So I would wait, and I would listen. I would have my finger on the pulse, my ear to the ground."

It's certainly something Johnson has thought about in the past because, back in 2017, he told The Ellen DeGeneres Show he was 'seriously considering' putting himself up for the top job.

He expanded on the idea in an interview with GQ in the same year, explaining: "A year ago it started coming up more and more.


"There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, 'Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.'

"I didn't want to be flippant - 'We'll have three days off for a weekend! No taxes!'"

Three day weekend sold it for us.

When pressed about whether he could ever see it happening, he added: "I think that it's a real possibility."
