Angelina Jolie says her kids’ adventurous appetites have forced her to step up her game in the kitchen.
During an interview that aired Tuesday on Good Morning America, the 41-year-old mother of six gushed about her children’s love for bugs.
“They can eat a bag of crickets like a bag of chips,” she said.
The Oscar-winning actress shares six children with her ex Brad Pitt: Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. And she told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that all of her children enjoy a good, tasty insect.
“They’re used to eating scorpions,” she said. “Especially Shiloh. Shiloh loves a tarantula, loves a bug.”
With her children’s refined taste, Jolie said she has to perfect her cooking skills.
“I’m learning to cook them better,” Jolie said of the bugs. “A little more flair, a little more seasoning.”
The actress and her children were in Cambodia recently, where Jolie’s passion project First They Killed My Father premiered on Saturday. They enjoyed a slew of insects, with Jolie showing little Knox and Vivienne how to prepare a few spiders.
Although she may need to improve her insect-cooking skills, Jolie is no stranger to eating Cambodian bugs.
“I first had them when I was first in the country,” the actress recently told the BBC’s Yalda Hakim during an interview in Cambodia. “Crickets — you start with crickets. Crickets and a beer, and then you kind of move up to tarantulas.”
