Tiffany Antone is a playwright and instructor, who also finds time to produce and direct new and innovative works. Her plays have been read/produced in NY, LA, DC and AZ, and she is the creative mind behind Little Black Dress INK — a fem...

Aliens — they're real

Nope, you're not alone in thinking aliens are real.

Eddie Redmayne

SheKnows got to sit down with Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones to talk about The Theory of Everything, and we asked what they thought of Stephen Hawking's theories about extraterrestrial life. 

"I believe all of that!" Redmayne said. "There's such a vastness out there, there must be others."

As for Felicity Jones?

"I hope so, just because it will make things more interesting," Jones said. "It's nice to think that there's another planet with other things going on and that we're not, you know, the center of the universe."

Uh, of course Ariana Grande believes in aliens. "We'd be stupid to believe we are the only people here," she told Complex.

Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter

Former President Jimmy Carter not only believed in the possibility of life on other planets, he also claimed to have seen a UFO in Georgia. Carter actually talked about the incident while campaigning, even going so far as promising to make government files on UFOs available to the public if elected. (Carter never followed through on that promise, however, much to the chagrin of alien enthusiasts.) Can you imagine a presidential candidate running on an Area 51 platform today?

Demi Lovato

Lovato recently told Seth Meyers not only that she knows aliens exist but also that she believes mermaids are possible. She went on to say that mermaids could be an "alien species that lives in the Indian Ocean," which explains so many... no, wait, it doesn't explain anything.

Keanu Reeves

OK, maybe it won't make you go "Whoa!" to find out that Keanu Reeves believes in aliens, but doesn't it just feel right to see his name on this list? The actor, who practically built his career in sci-fi, has confirmed that he simply finds the universe too vast to deny the presence of little green men. We'd like to suggest he recruit a few of them and make Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure in Space.

David Bowie

Maybe we shouldn't be surprised that the musician who created out-there alter ego Ziggy Stardust believed in aliens. But can we be surprised that he claimed to have visited a UFO repair shop?

Katy Perry confessed her belief in UFOs to GQ magazine in February. "I see everything through a spiritual lens. I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens," she said.

While doing press for Race to Witch Mountain, Johnson admitted to believing not only in aliens but also in magic and a world of possibilities at large.

Jaden Smith

Jaden Smith took things up a notch by getting President Obama involved, apparently asking the president if aliens were real. According to Smith, the president neither confirmed nor denied the existence of little green men. What is it with presidents so consistently sidestepping this issue?

Sigourney Weaver

Sigourney Weaver

The Alien star is not only a believer but a conspiracy theorist as well. She once told the German magazine TV Spielfilm, "We are not alone in the universe. I think there's a department in our government that is exclusively dedicated to quashing reports about aliens. And that's so unfair."

Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas once saw three flying saucers when he was younger, so, naturally, he believes in aliens.

He told Seth Meyers on Late Night, "When I was 14, I was in my backyard playing basketball with some friends and I looked up into the sky and there was three flying saucers. Everyone said it was a movie, but I was convinced it was real. So I looked it up online and there was three identical sightings in other states. So I'm a firm believer in aliens and extraterrestrial life."

Dan Aykroyd

This Ghostbuster believes in ETs, but he doesn't think we've made a very good impression on them. "They don't want anything to do with us. I don't think we will ever have a formal relationship, a formal contact, with any alien species out there — especially after 9/11, when we broke our toys in the sandbox," Aykroyd said on CNN's Larry King Live. "If they were observing that, good-bye human race."

Fran Drescher

Remember Fran Descher from The Nanny? She believes she was abducted by aliens.

"You know, it's funny because Peter (Fran's ex-husband) and I both saw [aliens] before we knew each other," she told Huffington Post, "doing the same thing, driving on the road with our dads. We were both in junior high. A few years later, we met, and we realized that we had the same experience. I think that somehow we were programmed to meet. We both have this scar. It’s the exact same scar on the exact same spot."

Whoa...

Famous Scientologist Tom Cruise not only believes in aliens, he reportedly built a $10 million bunker to protect himself in case Xenu (the evil dictator of the "Galactic Confederacy," according to Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard) attacks Earth. 

'Kay.

Khloé Kardashian & Kendall Jenner

Khloé Kardashian & Kendall Jenner

Our girl KoKo is a firm believer in aliens — and she even believes the government is hiding 'em from us. After witnessing a bizarre streak across the sky, she tweeted out "UFOs are real!!!" Kendall chimed in, saying, "Khloe and I are freaking out right now over this UFO situation."

#WeAreNotAlone, indeed.
