LONDON, Feb 22: Angelina Jolie cooked and ate tarantula spiders for herself and her children on live television.
The 41-year-old Hollywood star showed off her culinary skills while promoting new movie “First They Killed My Father” in Cambodia, in an interview with BBC World News.
“See the hard part where you have the teeth? Take the fangs out.
“I think it’s always been a part of the diet (in Cambodia), the bugs, but then I think there is a truth to the survival during the war of course when people were being starved they were able to survive on things like this and they did,” said Jolie.
The “Maleficent” actress demonstrated how to cook and enjoy the fare to her children Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
She added she had first tried insects and arachnids when she adopted Maddox from Cambodia as a baby in the year 2002. (PTI)
