Angelina Jolie feeds Maddox a plate of crickets
Angelina Jolie recently returned with her adopted son Maddox to his homeland of Cambodia, and while there she fed him a local delicacy: a plate full of crickets, with their guts intact. Angelina told reporters, "I recently took Mad to Cambodia and it was the first trip there where he really understood it. We took him to a restaurant in the middle of the night and he had his first plate of crickets."
Crickets are a popular high-protein meal in Cambodia, and Angelina has also tried cockroaches and bee larvae, and has expressed an interest in learning to cook them at home so she can keep a cultural tradition alive for her son.
I have to give it to Angelina. My wife lived in Cambodia for a summer doing legal work and I don't think she ate anything more exotic than a curry served in a coconut. And fair play to Maddox for trying them. I assume she'll have the edible insects and larvae that she wants to cook for her son at home shipped from Cambodia, rather than hunting through the walls of her Malibu dream home. But who knows. One could say she's a little bit weird.
