Jameela Jamil Reveals She ‘Almost Died’ Due To Ted Danson’s Advice: ‘He Tried To Kill Me!’

Jameela Jamil recalled the time Ted Danson’s advice nearly killed her as she chatted with Jimmy Kimmel during his show Monday.

Jamil revealed how she kept getting a fever, so her “Good Place” co-star taught her how to “stay alive.”

The actress told Kimmel, “A doctor once told me I’m clinically weak, which isn’t a condition, it’s just sad. But Ted noticed that I was fatigued and yet was running circles around me. And he’s 40 years older than me!

“I started trying to jog because of him. And the first time I tried, I almost died!”

Jamil then said how she went jogging “head to toe in black” because it’s L.A and it “doesn’t feel safe on the street.”

“I’m jogging, I stop because of the traffic. I’m listening to Beyoncé very loud. And I guess because I’m very tall, I have disturbed a branch on the tree.

“What I don’t know is—and I find this out as kind of a cloud of black descends upon me—that there’s a beehive on that tree.

“And I had very much so p**sed off the beehive that are now all over me, so I just start running into traffic. That is my natural instinct to run into six lanes of traffic. I run in, a car hits me. Yeah, I get knocked over by a car. I’ve just started filming ‘The Good Place’, by the way. But the car’s, thankfully, slowing down because it sees a woman covered in a perm of bees, so they hit me while slowing down.”

Jamil then revealed how she led the bees to a club/taco bar and the smoking area.

“There are people standing outside smoking, and I think to myself—and it’s terrible when you’re in a moment of emergency to realize what an awful person you are—but I looked at those people smoking and I was like, ‘You already don’t care about your lives, so I’m gonna run at you with these bees.'”

Jamil said of Danson, “He tried to kill me!”
