As if she isn’t sweet enough, Dish Nation has exclusively learned Scarlett Johansson is building a second career as a beekeeper!

The Hollywood star, 30 — who was famously gifted a beehive from Samuel L. Jackson for her first marriage to Ryan Reynolds — is overjoyed at the fact that California has just passed a bill allowing homeowners to keep bees on their private property.

Now the Manuka Honey fan is determined to make some sweet stuff of her own.

“She might not be able to make Manuka but she thinks there’s some real money if she can buy the best bees she can,” an insider revealed.

“She may have to import them and it can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars but she thinks it’s a quirky, fun and potentially money making hobby.”

In addition, Scarlett — who is now married to Romain Dauriac — sees it as a way to do her bit for the planet. Honey bees are now in short supply and since they are vital for pollinating food crops and soft fruits, their decline has had a big impact on the environment.

It was one of the reasons Samuel gave her the hive in the first place.

”Scarlett, was always talking about how the bees were dying and the planet was going to die,” Samuel said.

She’s also a big fan of the beauty benefits honey can provide and says she uses Manuka as a post-shower face mask.

“It really adds an amazing glow and your skin is so soft afterwards,” she said. “It pulls out the impurities — and it’s a nice foundation.”

In order to get it right Scarlett will have to do plenty of research, but the insider says she’s adamant about her beekeeping plans.

“When she puts her mind to something she does it,” the source said.

“She’ll have every book and tutorial she can find and will no doubt get an expert in to show her the ropes.”
