E.T. phones Tinsel Town: Six celebrities claim they have had alien encounters

Remember back when the success of shows like “Ghost Hunters” sparked a slew of celebrity stories about spooky encounters?

Fast-forward a decade or so, and suddenly it seems like, when they aren’t busting ghosts, Hollywood celebs are seeing UFOs and exchanging goods with extraterrestrials.

In the wake of UFO-mania, fueled in large part by what many see as the U.S. government finally acknowledging that non-human space-jockeys have visited Earth, DailyMail.com shared the stories of seven celebrities who have said they have encountered aliens.

The outlet spoke with self-proclaimed psychic Uri Geller who dished about his own encounter, as well as those of Tinsel Town’s top stars.

“John Lennon actually gave me an object that he got from an alien,” Geller told DailyMail.com, adding that he was “very close” to the legendary Beatle.

It’s a claim the illusionist has made before.

Previously, Geller had said that Lennon received the egg-like object from insectoid creatures.

“I wasn’t dreaming and I wasn’t tripping,” Lennon said, according to Gellar. “There were these creatures, like people but not like people, in my apartment – they were bug-like.”

“Geller still owns the object, which he has never had tested,” DailyMail.com reports, “but more skeptical observers have since suggested that the egg was an artwork created by Danish scientist and artist Piet Hein.”

In a 2020 sit-down with Interview magazine, singer Miley Cyrus claimed she was “chased down by some sort of UFO” in San Bernadino, California, though she admitted it may have been a close encounter with “weed wax.”

“I’m pretty sure about what I saw, but I’d also bought weed wax from a guy in a van in front of a taco shop, so it could have been the weed wax,” she said. “But the best way to describe it is a flying snowplow. It had this big plow in the front of it and was glowing yellow.”

“I did see it flying, and my friend saw it, too,” she said. “There were a couple of other cars on the road and they also stopped to look, so I think what I saw was real.”

Though she said the sighting “f**ked me up,” she did manage to catch a glimpse of the craft’s pilot.

“I didn’t feel threatened at all, actually, but I did see a being sitting in the front of the flying object,” she recalled. “It looked at me and we made eye contact, and I think that’s what really shook me, looking into the eyes of something that I couldn’t quite wrap my head around.”

Hollywood hero Kurt Russell told the BBC in 2017 that he was likely the first civil pilot to spot and report the notorious Phoenix Lights over Arizona and Nevada in 1997.

Russell said he was flying his son, Oliver, to see his girlfriend when he witnessed “six lights over the airport.”

“We were on approach,” he said. “I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform in a V shape. Oliver said to me — I was just looking at him, I was coming in, we’re maybe a half a mile out — and Oliver said, ‘Pa, what are those lights?’ Then I kind of came out of my reverie and I said, ‘I don’t know what they are.’ He said, ‘Are we okay here?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I’m gonna call in,’ and I reported it.”

In 2021, Demi Lovato stepped “into a new role as UFO hunter” in Peacock’s “new unscripted series,” ‘Unidentified with Demi Lovato.'”

But, in 2020, the singer stated on Instagram that she had used meditation to contact extraterrestrials, and, in 2021, cautioned the world that the word “alien” might offend them.

“This planet is on a very negative path toward destruction but WE can change that together,” she wrote in 2020, according to DailyMail.com. “If we were to get 1% of the population to meditate and make contact, we would force our governments to acknowledge the truth about extraterrestrial life among us and change our destructive habits destroying our planet.”

Boxing icon Muhammad Ali said that he saw a UFO in Central Park.

He even discussed UFOs with Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show.”

And then there’s Geller’s encounter.

When he was around five years old, he told DailyMail.com, he was hit in the head by what he believes may have been an alien laser beam in his family’s Tel Aviv garden.

“I could see a sphere of light, maybe three meters in diameter, it was throbbing,” he said. “Out of that sphere, almost like a laser beam, hit my head, I am not sure how long later it was that I went home.”

Anecdotes aside, Nigel Watson, author of the “UFO Investigations Manual,” remains “skeptical” of some of the celebrity’s stories.

“They use them to get publicity for their latest media projects or to jump on the UFO bandwagon,” he told DailyMail.com. “It also marks them out as being more special than us common folk who have not seen a UFO or been abducted by our alien visitors.”
