The Rock says he was the first choice to host the 2019 Oscars

Despite all the drama surrounding Kevin Hart and his hosting of the Oscars this year, The Rock says he was the Academy’s first choice to host this year.

The 46-year old actor disclosed that he tried to make it happen, but prior commitments got in the way, like shooting the upcoming sequel to Jumanji.

“I was their first choice to host this year, and my goal was to make it the most fun and entertaining Oscars ever,” Johnson responded to a tweet. “We all tried hard, but couldn’t make it work since I’m shooting Jumanji. Academy and I were super bummed but maybe one day down the road,” he added.

Some twitter users think The Rock could be just trolling Hart here, considering the two often like to roast each other in some friendly banter.

The 91st Academy Awards, which will be hostless now following Kevin Hart’s decision to step down, will take place on Sun, Feb 24 at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Set your DVR’s now.

Do you think The Rock is telling the truth here or trying to troll Hart?
