Does Angelina Jolie Really Eat Spiders and Scorpions?

Does Angelina Jolie Really Eat Spiders and Scorpions?

Yep. And crickets.

By Maggie Shi

Angelina Jolie is no stranger to danger. She shared a passionate kiss with her brother on the Oscars red carpet in 2000; has been known to wear a vial of blood around her neck; and famously broke up America's most beloved "It" couple. So this former bad girl isn't going to let a little thing like chomping on some tarantulas bother her.

The megastar and her children recently scarfed down some spiders and scorpions while in Cambodia promoting Jolie's latest film, First They Killed My Father. In fact, Jolie gave a full-on cooking lesson to a BBC News reporter, teaching her how to sauté scorpions, de-fang spiders, and pair crickets with beer.

She's clearly an expert when it comes to eating arachnids, as are her kids, who munch happily on spider legs alongside their famous mom."It's actually really good, the flavor," Jolie says.

The scorpion, however, proved to be a little tougher to get down. "It's hard to chew," Jolie proclaims in the video.

That's one of our pet peeves, too: overcooked scorpion.

Grab a snack, then watch Jolie chow down on spiders and scorpions:
