Bill Clinton has revealed he "wouldn't be surprised" if aliens visited Earth after he ordered a complete review of secret government files.

The former US president has opened up about his efforts investigating extraterrestrial life during an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! talk show.

He said his second term in office included the 50th anniversary of the infamous Roswell incident, which sparked a generation of conspiracy theories about a possible UFO crash landing.

Jimmy Kimmel Live surprise admission ... Ex-President Bill Clinton checked there were no aliens being kept at Roswell but says a visit in the future is possible.

Mr Clinton said he had all the records on the incident reviewed in time for the anniversary, as well as all the records on the secret Area 51 military base "to make sure there was no alien down there".

While he didn't find an alien, he said the truth is out there.

"If we were visited some day, I wouldn't be surprised," he said.

There are just too many planets in the universe to think otherwise, he added.

He promised the late-night host that he would tell the public if he had proof of alien life after reviewing the government's files.

"If they're out there, think of how all the differences among people on Earth would seem small if we felt threatened by a space invader," he said.

"I just hope that it's not like Independence Day, the movie, that it's a conflict. It may be the only way to unite us in this increasingly divided world of ours."
