Director of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "E.T."

Steven Spielberg stated that he had always been interested in UFOs and recalled his early fascination while watching a meteor shower as a kid with his father in New Jersey. Later, Spielberg would find world fame after directing "Jaws." Soon after, he directed another hugely successful film, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." According to the director, before its release, NASA actually reached out to him to dissuade him from releasing the film, stating that it was dangerous to do so. Years later, Spielberg would direct another movie about extraterrestrials, "E.T."

When asked about his thoughts on UFOs, he said, "I've never seen a UFO. I wish I had! I've never seen anything I can't explain. But I believe certain people who have seen things that they can't explain. I think what has been coming up recently is fascinating, absolutely fascinating. And I think the secrecy that is shrouding all of these sightings and the lack of transparency ... I think there is something going on that just needs extraordinary due diligence." He went on to explain that he believed there is other life in the universe, but that he does not think it likely that other life forms have been able to travel the distance required to reach Earth unless they have figured out something akin to wormholes. Instead, Spielberg proposed the idea that it may be more likely any visitors could actually be humans from the future that have travelled back in time to document our history.
