Screen legend Shirley MacLaine says the actor turned politician spotted a UFO in the 1950s… and the extra terrestrial being told him to switch careers
An alien may have been behind Ronald Reagan’s becoming president, according to screen legend Shirley MacLaine.
Reagan had a close encounter of the third kind back in the 1950s when he was still an actor, MacLaine says, and the extra terrestrial being told him to ditch Hollywood for politics.
The 78-year-old, who claims to have seen many UFOs from the front porch of her New Mexico home, says the 40th President of the United States was a fellow believer.
According to MacLaine, Reagan confided in ‘I Love Lucy’ star Lucille Ball about the eerie encounter, which took place when he was on his way to a party in Los Angeles with wife Nancy.
Ball told her that a UFO landed and the alien emerged telling Reagan to quit acting and take up politics.
But Reagan wasn’t the only president who believed in unidentified flying objects, according to MacLaine.
