George Clooney is one of the most popular actors today. Meanwhile, Meghan Markle has become even more popular after marrying Prince Harry. She’s back in the U.S, and there are claims that she is eyeing the presidency.
Aside from the two, more celebrities are rumored to be running for president. Gossip Cop investigated the rumors, and here’s what it finds out.
George Clooney for president rumors
George Clooney’s name often comes up when tabloids cover celebrity presidents. HollywoodLife claimed that Julia Roberts and more asked the Money Monster star to join the presidential race.
Gossip Cop debunked the report because it learned that Roberts wasn’t even there. Also, Clooney has personally denied the rumor. The Ocean’s Eleven actor already said that he has no interest in joining politics.
“Would I like to be the next president? Oh, that sounds like fun,” he said, per Entertainment Weekly.
Also, in 2015, Clooney made it clear that he had no plans to be a politician.
“I’ve been asked that for almost 20 years now and the answer is just no. Who would ever want to live like that?” Clooney said.
“I’m friends with a lot of those guys and I just think it’s hell.”
Meghan Markle eyeing the presidency rumors
Meghan Markle has already stepped down from her royal duties and flew back to America. Following her return, there are rumors that she wants to be a president in the future.
Lady Collin Campbell claimed that the presidency is on the cards for the duchess. But a source close to Markle denied that she is planning to join the presidential race. However, the topic interests her.

President Oprah Winfrey rumors
Oprah Winfrey has gained a lot of supporters over the years, and many are encouraging her to run for president. Years ago, there were rumors that she would join the 2020 presidential election.
Life & Style also quoted the talkshow host saying, “yes, I’m running.” It even claimed that Winfrey was willing to spend $1 billion to ensure her victory. But that’s not happening. Apparently, Oprah is not running.
Eminem for president rumors
Eminem performed an anti-Trump freestyle rap, and HollywoodLife published a story claiming that he would be running against Donald Trump in 2020. It also quoted an insider allegedly close to the Stan performer saying; there was “not a chance in the world” that he would run for president.
Eminem’s spokesperson exclusively told Gossip Cop that the source quoted by HollywoodLife wasn’t real. Also, the report is false because he didn’t run for president this year.
Kim Kardashian running for president rumors
Heat claimed Kim Kardashian would run for president. The tabloid didn’t conclude if she would run in 2020 or 2024. But apparently, the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star didn’t run this year. However, her husband, Kanye West, announced his candidacy on the Fourth of July.
It also claimed Kardashian had been “secretly shadowing politicians, past and present.” However, Gossip Cop refuted the report and called it “vague” because it lacked any real evidence.
