    It’s almost impossible for celebrities to disappoint their fan base. Admirers are ready to forgive anything - decisions to star in bad movies, regrettable fashion choices, or unacceptable behaviour. But one celebrity, however, has decided to prove that nothing is impossible for him.

    Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson “surprised” his fans when he boasted of his friendship with Elizabeth Warren, who is running for president in 2020. The 47-year-old actor and wrestler stars in the “Ballers” TV series about a group of rugby players, where The Rock plays a retired player-turned-financial adviser and team owner. Warren has repeatedly spoken about her love for the show and Johnson on her social media. Now The Rock has decided to open up about his relationship with the politician, saying that the two have a wild and pleasant friendship and called the 70-year-old senator a baller.

    ​Netizens took Johnson’s confession with a sad heart.

    ​Most users spoke of their deep respect for Johnson, but stressed that celebrities should stay out of politics.

    ​Others pointed out Warren’s economic proposals, which they found damaging.

    ​Still others noted that Johnson would be a better president than the Harvard professor.

    Incidentally, Johnson spoke about his desire to enter politics. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2016, the wrestler-turned-actor said he did not rule out running for president, saying "it would be a great opportunity to help people, so it’s possible".
