Queen Latifah was terrified throughout filming of her new movie THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES because she had to remove honey from real bee hives while thousands of the stinging insects swarmed around her. Latifah, who plays a beekeeper in the film, insists shooting the scene was the most nerve-wracking thing she's done because, to keep in character, she couldn't wear a protective mask or gloves. She says, "It was tough. I was very nervous. "I've done all kinds of stunts. I've driven all kinds of cars. I have shotguns and I have snowboarded. The bees win."
