The 21 Sexiest Aliens We’d Want To Share A Spaceship With On UFO Day

Mmm, take us to your leader.

Today (July 2) is officially World UFO Day — which means you’re probably already outside with a telescope, hoping for a repeat of the 1947 Roswell “incident” if you’re into that sort of thing. Here at MTV News we’re more of what you might call “indoor kids,” which is why we’ve foregone looking at the sky in favor of researching pictures of the hottest aliens in television and movie history.

Below we’ve compiled a list of our 21 favorite hot aliens, but just know that there are rules — future-humans who happen to be from alien planets (like, say, Alderaan) are not included, but alien life forms hiding out in human bodies are fair game. Geronimo!

1. Thomas Jerome Newton, “The Man Who Fell To Earth”
