Kurt Russell was recently promoting his upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie with fellow actor Chris Pratt on the BBC show called The One Show when he announced that he was a Phoenix Lights UFO witness. The interviewer asked the pair if they believed aliens have visited our planet, to which Pratt replied no. Russell recounted a story in which though he had forgotten the encounter, years later after watching documentary footage of the sightings with actress Goldie Hawn, he experienced a feeling of Deja Vu, and checked his log books from the day of the the sightings, only to realize he was the private pilot who first called the local airport to see if any unusual activity had been reported to that night.
