Angelina Jolie just got up close and personal with a ton of bees, which she allowed covering her body and FACE — all in a conservation effort for important species.
The message was clear after the A-lister allowed a photographer to capture her covered in the honey makers for World Bee Day, along with a National Geographic interview about why it’s more important now than ever to protect the bee population.
Brad Pitt’s ex-wife has been designated the ‘Godmother’ for ‘Women For Bees’ a program launched by the United Nations UNESCO and Guerlain to train and support female beekeeper-entrepreneurs around the world.

“With so much we are worried about around the world and so many people feeling overwhelmed with bad news and the reality of what is collapsing, this is one that we can manage,” Angelina told National Geographic.
She continued. “We can certainly all step in and do our part.”
“I don’t think a lot of people know what damage they’re doing. A lot of people are just trying to get through their day,” Angelina said. Adding, “They want to do good. They don’t want to be destructive. They don’t know which thing to buy. They don’t know which thing to use. So I think part of this is wanting to help it be simple for everybody because I need that.”
BTW — Just to prove it’s real — swipe right on the photo below and see the VIDEO of the bees buzzing around the A-lister!
You Gotta See This!!
Interestingly, the details of pulling off such an amazing shoot are just as good as the shots themselves!
According to Jolie, she couldn’t shower for three days beforehand. “It was so funny to be in hair and makeup and wiping yourself with pheromone, we couldn’t shower for three days before. Because they told me, ‘If you have all these different scents, shampoos and perfumes and things, the bee doesn’t know what you are.’ … Then you put a few things up your nose and in your ears so you don’t give them as many holes to climb in.”
“I did have one that got under my dress the entire time. It was like one of those old comedies,” Jolie said.
Adding, “I kept feeling it on my knee, on my leg, and then I thought, ‘Oh, this is the worst place to get stung. It’s getting really close.’ It stayed there the entire time we were doing the shoot. And then when I got all the other bees off, I lifted the skirt and he went away.”
