Gwyneth Paltrow has taken her passion for unusual beauty treatments to a new level by undergoing a bizarre therapy involving bee stings.

The actress revealed she used "bee venom therapy" to treat an injury, which involved being stung by a live insect, but Paltrow is convinced the odd procedure worked as her problem subsequently healed up.

She tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine, "The craziest treatment I've tried is one where I was stung by a live bee. It's called apitherapy and it's apparently been used since Egyptian times to promote healing."

Paltrow is known for her love of unusual and holistic treatments and has previously hailed the benefits of practices including Chinese cupping therapy, macrobiotic diets and wrinkle-busting laser facials.
