Aliens may be scared of Will Smith as a result of his Oscars slap and heroic movie roles.
UFO expert Nick Pope suggests that extraterrestrials will be terrified of the actor as a result of his performance in movies such as ‘Men in Black’ and ‘Independence Day’ – while his decision to slap Chris Rock at the Academy Awards will remind aliens of his strength should they decide to invade Earth.
Pope, who has previously worked for the UK Government’s Ministry of Defence, said: “Aliens will already know Will Smith from ‘Independence Day’, where he punched an alien and uttered the immortal line ‘Welcome to Earth’.
“They’ll also know him from the ‘Men in Black’ movies, so if aliens are planning an invasion, they’ll think Will Smith is often the person we put up to defend ourselves”
Pope suggested that aliens may not be able to tell the difference between fact and fiction.
He said: “All this depends on whether aliens understand the concept of fiction.
“If they don’t, they’ll think Earth has already fought off multiple alien invasions, and that may have a deterrent effect.”
