Food for thought... Angelina Jolie's boys Maddox and Pax eat crickets 'like Doritos'


Exotic diet: Angelina Jolie has introduced her boys Maddox and Pax to crickets - but they're so addicted to them she's had to limit their intake

She is as well known for her eccentric behaviour as she is for her fill career.
And now actress Angelina Jolie has revealed her children have developed some bizarre habits - including eating crickets.

Miss Jolie - whose partner is Hollwood heart-throb Brad Pitt, 47 - says her adopted sons Maddox and Pax have a penchant for snacking on crickets which she admits she encouraged.

The 36-year-old introduced the youngsters to the south-east Asian delicacy while they were away in Cambodia.

Delicacy: Fried crickets are commonplace in south eastern Asia

And, though she initially had to encourage her sons to eat the insects, they were soon eating so many that Angelina had to limit their intake.

In a video shot for Louis Vuitton's Core Values campaign in Cambodia, she said: 'My boys love to eat crickets. It's their favourite thing.

'When I first gave it to them... I wanted them not to be turned off by something that was of their culture. They ate them like Dorito's, and they wouldn't stop.

Not for the girls?: Zahara and Shiloh dont' seem to have been included in the cricket feast

'They brought to-go boxes home and I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from too many. But they're good - they are like a potato chip.'

In Vietnam and Cambodia, where Pax, seven, and Maddox, nine, are from respectively, it is common to eat fried crickets on sticks from a street vendor.
