The photo was taken as part of Angelina Jolie’s efforts in cooperation with UNESCO and the “Guerlain” group, the United Nations in the “Women for Bee” initiative, a program launched by UNESCO to train and support pioneer beekeepers around the world.
“The American actress stood steadfastly for 18 minutes in front of 60,000 bees and was not wearing a bee protection nor bathing because the bees attack the odors,” National Geographic’s private photographer Dan Winters revealed.
Dan added that when a bee crawled under her robe and was climbing up her body, it never retreated and it seemed as if it had done so all her life and I was the only one behind the camera who did not wear protective clothing in solidarity with the cause.
On her part, Angelina Jolie revealed that she did not shower for 3 full days before taking the picture so that the bees could recognize her from the smell of her body and added, “It was funny to be with the same hair and make-up and wipe yourself with pheromones, and I had to put some things in my nose and ear so that I did not give them many holes to climb. “.
“I kept feeling bees on my knees and legs and when I got all the other bees down I lifted the skirt and went away,” the Oscar winner added.
And the National Geographic website published a picture of American actress Angelina Jolie staring directly at the camera while the bees crawled on her body.
