Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson thinks 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is “a baller.”
The star of HBO’s “Ballers” tweeted Saturday night and acknowledged that his bond with Warren is “such a wild and pleasant one.”
“No surprise however, as my character & show transcends politics. Drive, ambition, getting knocked down, getting back up and moving on,” Johnson said, adding: “She’s a baller 😉”

Warren is not shy about her love of the show and its main character, retired NFL player-turned financial adviser-turned team owner Spencer Strasmore, played by Johnson. The senator from Massachusetts gushed about the program in an interview with Entertainment Weekly published Friday.
“Why would people be surprised that I like Ballers? It’s got The Rock! What’s not to love?” Warren told EW.
