News > “I Want To Believe”: 13 Famous People Who Believe In Aliens And Life On Other Planets!
It’s one of the many questions we human beings has long grappled with: Are we alone in the universe? Scientists are still continuing to scan the universe for signs of alien life, but some of us just can’t believe we’re alone, and can’t wait for a solid proof to believe in extraterrestrial life. Here are 13 famous people who believe in aliens.
1. Winston Churchill
Churchill wrote an 11-page essay on alien life in 1939, revealing his curiosity about the universe and outlining his definition of life and its most important ingredients.
'I, for one, am not so immensely impressed by the success we are making of our civilization here that I am prepared to think we are the only spot in this immense universe which contains living, thinking creatures,' he wrote in the newly uncovered essay, 'or that we are the highest type of mental and physical development which has ever appeared in the vast compass of space and time.'
Churchill's essay was described in an article published in the journal Nature in February 2017.
2. Khloe Kardashian
In 2015, Khloe Kardashian saw strange lights in the sky and tweeted 'Kendall and I are spazzing out!!!!!! #UFO.'
Though the U.S. Navy later said the unusual lights were part of a pre-planned missile test, Kardashian stuck to her guns.
'What do we expect people to say? Obvi they are going to say it's a meteor shower. I'm such a conspiracy theorist let me enjoy this,' she responded.
3. Hillary Clinton
In a radio interview and then later on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' Clinton said she wants to review files about UFOs and the mysterious Area 51 site in Nevada and make them public.
'I would like us to go into those files and hopefully make as much of that public as possible,' she told Kimmel. 'If there's nothing there, let's tell people there's nothing there.'
Area 51, located about 80 miles (130 kilometers) northwest of Las Vegas, in the Nevada desert, is a restricted military outpost that is part of the Edwards Air Force Base. It has been the site of a number of stealth military programs, and this secrecy has, in part, fueled conspiracy theorists who claim that scientists at the facility are reverse-engineering alien technology from UFO crashes. In 2013, declassified CIA documents detailed some of Area 51's history, revealing the site's role in testing spy planes such as the U-2. There was no mention of aliens or UFOs in the declassified files.
4. Zayn Malik
Singer Zayn Malik told Glamour in July 2016 that the first time he realized he wanted to leave the boy band One Direction and go solo was after a paranormal encounter. 'An alien spoke to me in a dream,' he told.
His girlfriend, Gigi Hadid recently posed for a space-themed photo spread for Harper's Bazaar and said 'My boyfriend's really into aliens.'
5. Gigi Hadid
Snd yes, Gigi also seems to be into aliens. She posed at the controls of a spacecraft, in front of massive rockets and rocket engines, and on what's made to look like the lunar surface. Hadid revealed that she and Malik both believe that life exists beyond Earth.
6. Ariana Grande
She says she's 'obsessed' with aliens, and in a 2013 interview she said, 'We'd be so stupid to believe we are the only people here.'
Grande's music video for the song 'Break Free' featured her battling aliens and dancing on a spaceship.
7. Ridley Scott
His 1979 movie 'Alien' explored the scary concept of an aggressive extraterrestrial that targets the crew of a spaceship. The film spawned a franchise with three sequels and two prequels, including 'Alien: Covenant,' which opens in theaters in the U.S. on May 19, 2017.
While promoting the new film, Scott warned that hundreds of alien species are 'out there' and cautioned that humans likely won't fare well if these cosmic interlopers ever decide to pay a visit to Earth.
'If you are stupid enough to challenge them, you will be taken out in three seconds,' Scott told. 8. Gillian Anderson
She is best known for playing FBI Special Agent Dana Scully on the hit sci-fi series 'The X-Files.', investigating paranormal phenomena.
'I do to the degree that the universe is obviously vast and the thought that we are the only planet full of living beings doesn't make sense,' Anderson said in an interview in 2012. 'That doesn't necessarily mean that there are aliens, but there could be. If we're talking about an advancement of technology, that they'd be potentially further along than us is as conceivable as their existence. So I wouldn't rule it out.' 9. Katy Perry
In a 2014 interview, pop star Katy Perry spoke about her wide range of beliefs.
'I see everything through a spiritual lens,' she told. 'I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form?' 10. Nick Jonas
In an interview, singer Nick Jonas described his own close encounter.
'I was in my backyard in L.A., and I looked up at the sky and [saw] three flying saucers,' Jonas said. 'I looked at my friend and said, 'Are you seeing this or am I losing my mind?''
Jonas said he looked online and saw three similar reports from two weeks earlier. The U.S. Navy later claimed responsibility for the seemingly out-of-this-world display, saying the lights were from a Trident missile test. But Jonas has other ideas.
'I'm obsessed with UFO stuff in general, so I'm all over this. That blue light freaks me out in the best way possible.' 11. William Shatner
As the most recognizable face of the 'Star Trek' franchise, actor William Shatner is probably used to fielding questions about his extraterrestrial beliefs. But in a 2010 interview he explained why he thinks intelligent beings must be out there.
'There is no doubt that there is life out there; the mathematics of it lead you to that absolute conclusion. In my mind, there is no doubt that the universe teems — teems! — with life in all its forms.' 12. Stephen Hawking
Stephen Hawking has warned that humans should be wary of contacting alien civilizations. In 2016, in a documentary called 'Stephen Hawking's Favorite Places,' he said humanity may one day receive a signal from a potentially habitable alien world, such as Gliese 832c.
'But we should be wary of answering back. Meeting an advanced civilization could be like Native Americans encountering Columbus. That didn't turn out so well.'
But that's not the first time Hawking has expressed such a concern. In 2015, he cautioned that visiting aliens may be in search of resources to plunder, as they roam the cosmos colonizing other worlds.
'Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.'
Hawking also said it's not likely that humanity will find intelligent alien life in the next 20 years. 'The probability is low, probably,' said Hawking, who has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and is paralyzed, but 'speaks' with the assistance of a computer.
13. Demi Lovato
During an appearance on the talk show 'Late Night with Seth Myers,' singer Demi Lovato insisted that aliens are real. 'How self-centered would we be, as humans, to believe that we are the only living things in the universe?' she said.
