Viggo Mortensen is so handsome and talented and handsome!
We could listen to him talk all day about anything.
But when he talks about animals in any way, even insects, we extra listen!
He's starring in a new movie called Everybody Has a Plan where, aside from speaking Spanish the entire time, he murders his identical twin and assumes his identity.
He gave an interview about the movie, and was asked about one of his characters, who was a beekeeper. He was asked:
"One of your characters in the film is a beekeeper. Did you learn to do your own beekeeping for the film?"
"Yeah, I did. Of course, the first time you try, you’re worried about being stung. It can happen even if you’re wearing those masks. But the thing I didn’t realize was how noisy it is, how loud a bee sounds when it’s hovering right near you. So imagine thousands of them all buzzing at the same time. It’s deafening. It’s kind of shocking at first, but then it’s strangely soothing. It’s so overwhelming that it puts you into this place where you’re very focused, unless you freak out and run away. But I had a good teacher. We even made our own honey. I still have some left."
Ha! That's pretty cool!
He got paid to play pretend in front of cameras and got to learn how to bee keep and even got his own honey out of it!
What a lucky guy.
