When extraterrestrials actually visit Earth, they often appear to reveal themselves to famous people.
Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Kurt Russell has claimed to have encountered strange lights or alien spaceships, although director Stephen Spielberg believes humans have had UFO encounters before.
UFO experts have even suggested that Hollywood’s obsession with extraterrestrials has led to real-world UFO sightings — known as the “Will Smith Effect” due to his role in Independence Day.
DailyMail.com spoke to famed TV psychic Uri Geller about his own UFO experiences, which he says began when he was just five years old – and other celebrities who had seen extraterrestrials.

Geller said, “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had this kind of contact with extraterrestrials.”
“In my opinion, America is hiding alien technology and trying to weaponize it to outperform Russia and China.”
Geller also spoke about John Lennon and Muhammad Ali’s experiences with UFOs – and DailyMail.com has investigated the stories of other celebrities who believe they have come into contact with extraterrestrials.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said he was “skeptical” about some celebrity UFO sightings, telling DailyMail.com: “They use them to promote their latest media projects or to get on the UFO bandwagon.” jump up.” It also marks them out as special than us common folk who have not seen a UFO or been abducted by our extraterrestrial visitors.”

Uri Geller told DailyMail.com that he is “very close” to Beatles singer John Lennon and that the musician gave him an alien egg or rock.
Speaking to DailyMail.com, Geller said: “John Lennon actually gave me an item that was given to him by an alien.”
Geller previously claimed that the egg-like object was “given” to Lennon by insectoid creatures and then gifted to Lennon.
Geller previously quoted Lennon as saying, “I didn’t dream and I didn’t stumble.” In my apartment there were these creatures that were like humans but not like humans — they were bug-like.”
Geller still owns the object, which he never had tested, but more skeptical observers have now suggested the egg was an artwork by Danish scientist and artist Piet Hein.
Miley Cyrus Made “Eye Contact” With Alien
Did Miley Cyrus really make ‘eye contact’ with the pilot of an alien spaceship?
Singer Miley Cyrus claimed that in San Bernardino, California, not only was she being pursued by “some kind of UFO,” but also made “eye contact” with the alien pilot.
In a 2020 interview with Interview magazine, she said she “couldn’t really look up at the sky” after their encounter.
She said the alien vehicle resembled a glowing, flying snowplow.
She said, “I saw it fly and my friend saw it too.” There were a couple of other cars on the road and they stopped to check too, so I think what I saw was real was.
“Actually, I didn’t feel threatened at all, but I saw a creature sitting in front of the flying object.
However, she admitted there was a possibility the encounter could have been due to “weedwax” she had recently used.
Kurt Russell and the Phoenix Lights

The Phoenix Lights are one of the most famous UFO sightings in recent history. In 1997 lights were seen over Arizona and Nevada.
But the first person to spot the “alien” lights may have been Hollywood star Kurt Russell at the controls of his own private plane.
Russell reported the lights to the control tower at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and may even have been the first person to report the sighting.
He said he had his son Oliver flown to a friend’s house: “We were coming in to land.” I saw six lights over the airport in perfect uniform in a V shape. Oliver said to me – I just looked at him, I walked in, we’re maybe half a mile away – and Oliver said, “Dad, what are those lights?”
“Then I kind of woke up from my reverie and said, ‘I don’t know what that is.’ He said, ‘Are we okay here?’ And I said, ‘Yes, I’ll report’ and I reported it.’
It is now believed that the lights were the result of a pilot exercise, Operation Snowbird, rather than an alien visit.
Demi Lovato’s Alien Snowflakes
Demi Lovato is so convinced that aliens exist that we should stop using the word “alien” if it offends.
She said, “I think we need to stop calling them ‘aliens’ because ‘aliens’ is a derogatory term for everything.”
In a 2020 Instagram post, she revealed that she had contacted extraterrestrials through meditation.
She wrote: “In the past few months I have delved deeply into the science of consciousness and experienced not only a peace and serenity unlike anything I have ever known, but also the most incredibly profound sightings both in the sky and just yards away experienced.” by me.
“This planet is on a very negative path to destruction, but WE can change that together.” If we got 1% of the population to meditate and socialize, we would force our governments to spread the truth about extraterrestrial life to acknowledge ourselves and change our destructive habits that are destroying our planet.”
Muhammad Ali’s lights in the sky
Muhammad Ali believed in UFOs
The boxer was a firm believer in UFOs and spoke about his own encounters.
In the book Amazing Flying Saucer Experiences of Celebrities, Rock Stars and the Rich and Famous, Ali said he spotted a UFO in Central Park in New York.
Ali said: “I happened to look up just before sunrise, as I often do when running, and there was this brilliant light hovering over us as if hanging by an invisible thread.”
“At first I thought it was a beacon projected from a helicopter. But a few moments later, a similar object passed in front of us.”

World-famous spoon-bending psychic Uri Geller has long had a fascination with the paranormal – but did his powers come from a UFO encounter as a child?
Geller, who has demonstrated psychokinetic powers on television around the world, told DailyMail.com his mother always preferred to assume his powers came from his relative Sigmund Freud.
But when he was about five years old, Geller had a creepy encounter near the family home in Tel Aviv after sneaking into a garden after thinking he heard kittens crying.
He said, “I could see a ball of light, maybe ten feet in diameter, pulsing.”
“This bullet almost hit me in the head like a laser beam. I’m not sure how long it was before I went home later.”
Geller said he’s still not sure if his encounter was a spiritual experience or some kind of extraterrestrial “higher being.”
Geller also claimed to have subsequently worked with the CIA to research his powers and claimed to have seen alien corpses at a secret location in the United States
