Angelina Jolie has been forced to ban insects from her home. Not all insects, but specifically crickets. Jolie, who is mom to Maddox (9), Pax (7), Zahara (6), Shiloh (5), and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, has been forced to ban cricket eating in her home after Maddox and Pax began consuming them “like Doritos.”
Jolie opened up about her kids bug eating habit on a video shoot in Cambodia for Louis Vuittons Core Values campaign, “My boys love to eat crickets. It’s their favorite thing.” She goes on to explain that she didn’t want the boys to be turned off by something that was of their culture. In the video she says, “and they ate them like Doritos and they wouldn’t stop. They brought to-go boxes home and I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point, because I was afraid they would get sick from eating too many.”
Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt’s children are from all around the world. Maddox hails from Cambodia, Pax from Vietnam, Zahara from Ethiopia, Shiloh from Namibia, and the twins were born in a seaside hospital in NIce, France. Jolie and Pitt are avid travelers and often the children accompany the stars to exotic locations. This means the children get to try different foods from all over the world.
E! Online reports that although Angelina’s kids love to eat crickets and even she indulges in the Cambodian fried delicacy once in a while she has, “–yet to have tarantulas on a stick or spider soup. I don’t know if you can get around the fur, but you gotta try everything.”
