Actress Halina Reijn’s breasts as a moneymaker for bee research in Wageningen? Too good to be true? Indeed.
The profits will go to the bee group in Wageningen, says the newspaper. 'But we know nothing about it', says Van der Steen. 'I have never heard of the festival. A colleague just emailed me to tell me.' Which does not mean that he wouldn't like to have one of the jars. Van der Steen is a red-blooded Dutch... beekeeper.
Enquiries with the festival organizers reveal that the report is not true. It is true that Halina Reijn, Anna Drijver and ten or so other actresses (as well as one actor) are going to go topless. But the money will stay in Amsterdam to be spent on local projects that promote bee welfare. Pity for Sjef and his colleagues.
