Banderas Escapes Stinging Attack

Film star ANTONIO BANDERAS's stint of gardening at home became a stinging nightmare - after he accidentally knocked over a hive of bees.

The Spanish hunk, 40, was bombarded by bees while pruning a tree in the garden of his new Los Angeles, California mansion. The star of THE MASK OF ZORRO - married to actress MELANIE GRIFFITH - fled to safety inside the house and called a local beekeeper to remove the hive. A neighbour says, "He was real scared."
