Jan. 30, 2012 -- quicklist: category: title: Fran Drescher url: text: Fran Drescher recently said in an interview that she believed she and her ex-husband had shared similar extraterrestrial experiences, asserting that they may have been implanted with alien chips in their skin.
"You know, it's funny because Peter [Jacobson, Drescher's ex-husband] and I both saw [aliens] before we knew each other, doing the same thing, driving on the road with our dads," Drescher told the Huffington Post. "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."
Jacobson told the website Drescher got the scar from a drill bit or from a burn, but his ex didn't agree.
"I said to him, that's what the aliens programmed us to think," Drescher said. "But really, that's where the chip is." On Friday, Drescher tweeted, "Must b a slow wk in huffingtonpost 2 rite an alien abduction story on me! R they goin tabloid?" She didn't deny or confirm the story.

quicklist: category: title: Anne Heche url: text: The actress Anne Heche has been known for some outlandish behavior and ideas. In her memoir, "Call Me Crazy," Heche wrote about an alien alternate personality named Celestia.
"Celestia" emerged in the days after the end of Heche's three-year relationship with Ellen Degeneres.
"In the fourth dimension, which is where Celestia was from, there was no hatred," Heche wrote in her book. "Everyone was equal there. There was no color, no race, and no creed distinction. In fact, there was no gender distinction. It was a world of Gods where everyone was everything they wanted to be. There was complete acceptance and understanding there."
Heche described Celestia as an alternate personality that had been with her for years who thought a spaceship was coming to take her to a better place. Heche said in an interview with the New York Times Magazine that Celestia began six years before her split from Degeneres and that she used to go to her trailer on movie sets to transcribe messages she believed were from God, delivered through Celestia.

"Yes, of course. Are you really so arrogant as to believe we are alone in this universe?" he asked, according to CNN. "Millions of stars, and we're supposed to be the only living creatures? No, there are many things out there, we just don't know."

quicklist: category: title: William Shatner url: text: William Shatner, the former Captain Kirk, has long been vocal about his belief in extraterrestrial life.
"There is no doubt that there is life out there; the mathematics of it lead you to that absolute conclusion," he told the Montreal Gazette in 2010. "In my mind, there is no doubt that the universe teems – teems! – with life in all its forms. But why they would come visit here and not let themselves be known to everybody is beyond my sense of logic."

quicklist: category: title: Sammy Hagar url: text: Rocker Sammy Hagar of Van Halen fame has been vocal about a theory that aliens wirelessly downloaded material from his brain.
"I saw a ship and two creatures inside of this ship…And they were connected to me, tapped into my mind through some kind of mysterious wireless connection," Hagar wrote in his book "Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock."
Hagar has also said that he believes he has been abducted by aliens in the past.
"[Aliens] were plugged into me. It was a download situation. This was long before computers or any kind of wireless. There weren't even wireless telephones," Hagar said in March 2011 interview with MTV. "Looking back now, it was like, 'F***, they downloaded something into me!' Or they uploaded something from my brain, like an experiment.
