Angelina Jolie admits her children eat insects

20/07/2011

Angelina Jolie has admitted that her children eat insects. The mother-of-six opened up about her brood in a promotional video for Louis Vuitton's Core Values campaign. The Hollywood actress says her kids fell in love with eating crickets during a family trip to Cambodia. Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt frequently travel with their large family and have adopted children from around the world.

Their eldest son Maddox, nine, is from the Southeast Asia country where it is seemingly customary to indulge in the local delicacy. "My boys love to eat crickets. It's their favourite thing," she said. "When I first gave it to them ... I wanted them to not be turned-off by something that wasn't [part of] their culture. So bought them ... and they ate them like Doritos.

"And they wouldn't stop and they brought to-go boxes home. And then I had to actually ban the cricket-eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from eating too many ... But they're good!" Jolie and Pitt are also parents to Pax, seven, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
