Well mostly people fear creepy spiders or night insects like cricket but this star seems to get some positive energy from such insects. Recently Angelina Jolie and her kids went to Cambodia for a vacation and what came to news left everyone astounded .
We’ll savor these moments forever when Angelina says, “Who wants to share a spider?” and “It’s hard to chew the scorpions” as though she were at her backyard barbecue on a family lunch day.

Cambodians have hunted spiders for traditional medicine and sometimes food for generations, but eating them became widespread only in the mid-1970s. Today, spiders — rich in protein, folic acid and zinc — are considered a delicacy and sold in markets and restaurants across Cambodia. However , Scorpions are an extremely famous delicacy in china. Scorpions can be cooked in many different ways — roasted, fried, grilled or even consumed live. Generally they need to be cooked in order to drain out the poison but chopping the stinger off would be just fine although it is said that eating the tail makes you strong. Insects contain more protein, fat, and carbohydrates than meat, and could help resolve hunger issues around the world.
The actress-humanitarian, 41, taught the reporter along with her children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, whom she shares with ex Brad Pitt — how to prepare the creatures, removing the fangs from a tarantula before heating it up in a pan.What she also added was that eating them is not strange for her at all as people in the early 80’s survived on things like this.
The Maleficent actress revealed that she first tried eating bugs on a previous trip to Cambodia.She is no stranger to Cambodian bugs, as it turns out. “I first had them when I was first in country,” the actress says. “Crickets — you start with crickets. Crickets and a beer, and then you kind of move up to tarantulas.”.
It’s either disgusting or awesome … or awesomely disgusting.
What is even more strange is that now her kids have upgraded to even bigger bugs and the “Jolie Family” is going to be adopting a new lifestyle of eating the cooked the creepy-crawlies.
Who thought that eating tarantulas, scorpios or crickets could be healthy and that they don’t deserve to be smashed by our slippers rather they should be cooked and eaten to maintain a protein rich diet.
