13 Famous People Who Believe in Aliens
Believing in aliens and other extraterrestrial life forms isn’t just for nerds and conspiracy theorists anymore. There are tons of celebrities and well-known figures who have professed a belief in extra-terrestrial life forms of some kind. For many, it’s simply a feeling that we aren’t alone in the universe, but some others actually claim to have had personal alien sightings – things like flying saucers, or mysterious silver objects streaking across the sky at dusk.
Here’s a list of some famous people who have spoken out publicly about their belief in the supernatural.
Elvis Presley’s belief in aliens was backed up by a legion of fans who claim that if The King said it, it must be true. Biographers claim that on the day of Elvis’s birth, a strange blue light was spotted hovering over his family home in Tupelo, Mississippi. Both Elvis’s father and the doctor who delivered him claimed to have seen it. Evidently, his father’s belief convinced him that there were mysterious things in life that were worth a second look.
Throughout his life, Elvis kept seeing things like strange lights in the sky that he strongly believed were aliens. Some fans even believe that there were unidentified flying objects (UFOs) spotted graveside at his funeral.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Scientologist power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith both profess a strong belief in aliens that they clearly passed on to their son Jaden. Jaden Smith tells a story of being at the White House with his parents, and being taken in to the Situation Room with the President as a special treat. While there, he asked the President whether aliens existed, and he claims that Obama said that he could neither confirm nor deny their existence.
Whether it was Scientology or Will’s stint in the Men in Black franchise that encouraged these beliefs, clearly Jaden is well on track to be as wild in his beliefs as his Scientologist parents.
Aging rocker Mick Jagger is one of many celebrities who claim to personally have had at least one encounter with aliens. While camping in Glastonbury in the late ‘60s, he claims that he saw a large, cigar-shaped hovercraft. After that, he installed a UFO detector in his home, which was supposed to work by reading the quantities of electromagnetic activity going on in the area. He claims that the alarm would ring every time he left the house, which meant that as soon as he left the property, the levels of electromagnetic activity would rapidly rise.
He also claims that he saw a UFO hovering over the crowd at the famous Altamonta Speedway concert of 1969 – although, with it being 1969, who knows what crazy stuff they were smoking.
