Angelina Jolie agreed to cover her body in bees in honor of World Bee Day for an incredible magazine shot for National Geographic.
In a wild video posted on the magazine’s Instagram page, the 45-year-old actress poses for the shot wearing a white off-the-shoulder top with tons of bees crawling all over her face, neck, and chest as the photographer snapped away. The post was noted by Page Six in a piece published Thursday. (RELATED: Report: Angelina Jolie Given Ultimatum Regarding Custody Of Her And Brad Pitt’s Kids)

The caption next to the post focused on how the superstar actress “wanted to do a portrait covered in bees.”
It also detailed how a master beekeeper was brought in to make the shot happen which included various steps to keep the bees calm.
“Everyone on set, except Angelina, had to be in a protective suit,” the post added. “It had to be quiet and fairly dark to keep the bees calm. I applied the pheromone in the places on her body where I wanted bees to congregate.”
“The bees are attracted to the pheromone, but it also encourages them not to swarm,” the post continued. “We also placed a large number of bees on a board that rested in front of her waist. Angelina stood perfectly still, covered in bees for 18 minutes without a sting.”
