Funnyman Jerry Seinfeld discovered he’ll never be an honorary bee, despite playing one in new animated film Bee Movie, after getting stung by one.
The comedian researched his role as a cartoon bee in the film by visiting a beekeeper – and he felt so confident, he chose not to wear protection.
Seinfeld recalls: “The beekeeper said, `You don’t need to wear any protective gear because, if you handle bees properly, they will not sting you’. Well, he didn’t know what he was talking about and I think he got excited that he had a celebrity come and look at his bees.”
Seinfeld adde: “He said, `Do you want to see the Queen?’ and I said, `OK,’ so he started pulling things out, looking for the Queen. Well the bees weren’t too crazy about that. They like the Queen to be left alone: `Don’t mess with our Queen!’ So they sent this bee on a suicide mission – to get me. I felt like I was stung by one of my own.”
