Chris Colfer Had an Alien Encounter as a Kid!

Chris Colfer has had an extraterrestrial experience!!

The 27-year-old actor spilled on his alien encounter while appearing on The Tonight Show on Monday (June 26) in New York City.

For his recent birthday, Chris headed to Peru, a known alien hot spot, in the hopes of seeing something out of the ordinary.

Unfortunately, Chris didn’t run into any aliens there but he did have an encounter when he was much younger.

“When I was a kid, I was very sick with bronchitis and I was on like Sizzurp levels of cough syrup, so it might have been a hallucination…I woke up in the middle of the night and there was a little alien sitting at the foot of my bed,” he explained.
