You might know Angelina Jolie as an award-winning actress, director and humanitarian, but it seems the mother-of-six is also an adventurous foodie…
During her trip to Cambodia, where she is currently promoting her project currently promoting her project First They Killed My Father, which details the atrocities in the country during the Khmer Rouge regime in the Seventies, the actress was joined by BBCjournalist Yalda Hakim and her children for a traditional Cambodian family dinner, which involved the actress serving up local delicacies – including cooked spiders and scorpions.
Showing her eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne how to “take the fangs out” of the spiders, Jolie can be seen pulling apart the legs of the critter before admitting she hasn’t always been a connoisseur of insect cooking.
“Crickets — you start with crickets,” she joked. “Crickets and a beer, and then you kind of move up to tarantulas… It’s actually really good, the flavour.”
Her son Knox then warns his sister, 10-year-old Shiloh, that the insects taste like “dry chips … like flavourless chips”.
