For its time, the alien in the 1979 classic Alien was one of the freakiest creatures ever put to film. So how weird is it to see him hanging out back stage and goofing around?

Admittedly, pretty weird. But it's also pretty awesome.

A small gallery of behind-the-scenes shots from the film have surfaced via Retronaut, showing the infamous xenomorph prepping for stunts and generally just hanging out backstage.

It's pretty surreal to see the young man behind the mask, sporting a big smile and a body of sheer terror.
