In Cambodia it is a common delicacy among the locals. "I think it's always been a part of the diet (in Cambodia), the bugs, but then I think there is a truth to the survival during the war of course when people were being starved they were able to survive on things like this and they did," said the actor.
Angelina who was having a gala time, was also seen to be tutoring her children into eating spiders and scorpions. "You see the hard part is where you have the teeth, take the fangs out" she guided her children, while helping daughter Shilloh place the bug on to the frying pan. Flipping the scorpion in style, the children were more than amused to see their mother acing the cooking game.
"Like chips, these are like flavourless chips," retorted one of her sons munching on the bugs.
Angelina Jolie next film, which is also a directorial venture, is based on a memoir of the Khmer Rouge regime of Cambodia.
