Angelina Jolie: Maddox and Pax Eat Crickets “Like Doritos”
Angelina Jolie has some adventurous eaters on her hands.
“My boys love to eat crickets. It’s their favorite thing,” the 36-year-old actress says in a video shoot for Louis Vuitton‘s Core Values campaign, which was shot on location in Cambodia (the country where she adopted Maddox, now 9).
“When I first gave it to them . . . I wanted them not to be turned off by something that was of their culture. They ate them like Doritos, and they wouldn’t stop,” Jolie says of Maddox and Pax, 7. “They brought to-go boxes home and I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from too many.”
Jolie herself has even indulged in the Southeast Asian countries delicacies. “They’re good. They’re like a potato chip.”
Two things the Oscar winner hasn’t tried? Tarantulas on a stick and spider soup. “It does seem like an odd thing to eat,” Jolie admits of the tarantula pop. “I don’t know if I can get around the fur, but you’ve got to try everything.”
