Angelina Jolie Cooks And Eats Bugs With Kids In Cambodia

Is Angelina Jolie preparing to appear on I’m A Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here!, because she’s doing bush tucker trials on her own accord?!

Bugs And Tarantulas On Menu

The 41-year-old was being filmed by BBC News ahead of her new film, First They Killed My Father, and she proved that she and her family will eat ANYTHING – including bugs and tarantulas. Oh my!

Angie was joined by her eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne cooking bugs while she cooked the Cambodian delicacy.

“You start with crickets and a beer, and then you kind of move up to tarantulas,” the actress tells the camera.

How To Eat Bugs

“I think it’s always been a part of the diet, the bugs, but then I think there is a truth to the survival during the war, of course,” she said referring to Cambodia’s traumatic history .

“When people were being starved, they were able to survive on things like this and they did.”

However, Angie’s twins seemed less than impressed with their dinner at first, but they eventually jumped on board.

“Want to share a spider?” the Maleficent actress asks her kids.

“It’s like dry chips, like savourless chips,” Knox says after trying one.

The mum-of-six says she has a lot to be grateful to Cambodia for, as she adopted her eldest son Maddox from a Cambodian orphanage in 2002.

“I came to this country and I fell in love with its people and learned its history, and in doing so learned how little I actually know about the world,” she says.

“This country, for me, was my awakening. I’ll always be grateful to this country. I don’t think I ever could give back as much as this country has given me.”

Opening Up About Brad

Meanwhile, Angie got emotional while talking about her estranged husband Brad Pitt in another interview with Good Morning America.

When she was asked if her family is in a healthier place now following the couple’s shock split in September last year, she said:“We are focusing on the health of our family. We will be stronger when we come out of this because that’s what we’re determined to do as a family.”

And she was also asked if she believed Brad, 53, was still a wonderful father, she paused before adding: “Of course. Of course. We will always be a family. Always.”

Brad and Ange have been embroiled in a highly publicised break-up and have been fighting for custody over their six kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
