Ethan Miller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Blake Lively’s 27th birthday celebration this past week didn’t get off to a great start. The former Gossip Girl star, whose birthday was Monday, says she was attacked by an angry swarm of bees.
In the latest post on her lifestyle blog, Preserve, Lively writes she was shooting content for Preserve when she suddenly “felt an electric shock of energy.”
Lively continues, “[W]as it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? I like getting older…I think. But this felt terrible.”
Lively then writes, “Does your butt quite suddenly (and painfully) deflate when you turn 27? Because mine hurt like hell…then my neck, back, legs and forehead. And oh my hands! They were shriveling. It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting.”
“I wasn’t being greeted by the onset of spontaneous aging, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over. Everywhere,” she adds.
Lively says she doesn’t know what kind of bees stung her. She says the attack left her “shaken” and “swollen.”
She concludes the post by musing, “It took a swarm of bees to remind me that a b-day is nothing but a number. Each day I choose my age.”
Lively will next be seen starring opposite Harrison Ford in the upcoming drama, The Age of Adeline, scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.
