Johnson said he felt surprised by the amount of support he has received since he revealed to GQ in an interview that hes thinking of running for the White House.

Johnson told GQ that he first thought about a presidential run in 2016, according to the Deseret News.

His connection with the people, he said, inspired his desire to run.

With any job you come into, you've got to prove yourself," he said. "And, personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important. Leadership would be important. Taking responsibility for everybody."

He said the enthusiasm has come from peoples desire for a better leader, THR reported.

"I think its because, you know, a lot of people want to see a different leadership today Im sorry, not a different, but a better leadership today," the actor told Fallon. "More poise, less noise."
