Angelina Jolie has joined forces with National Geographic to raise awareness and highlight the importance of bee protection. The 45-year-old actress and activist Angelina Jolie posed for a striking photo with a group of bees on her. The photo was taken by beekeeper Dan Winters.
The photo project was not simple. Angelina revealed that she was not allowed to take a shower three days before the photo session.
“It was a lot of fun to get a haircut and make-up and to apply pheromone. We should not have taken a shower in the previous three days. They told us: ‘If you have all those different scents of shampoos and perfumes and other things, the bees will not know what you are.’ ”
“One of the bees was under my dress all the time. It was like in one of those old comedies. I felt it on my knee and on my leg and then I thought, ‘This is the worst place to sting.’ “, told Angelina Jolie.
