According to, Angelina Jolie shares her sons Maddox (9) and Pax's (7) fascinating taste in food in her latest campaign video with Louis Vuitton, which was filmed in Maddox's birthplace, Cambodia. They love CRICKETS!

In the video she explains that she first offered Maddox and Pax crickets because she "wanted them not to be turned off by something that was of their culture."

"They ate them like Doritos," she recalls, "and they wouldn't stop." At one point, Angelina goes on to say, "I had to actually ban the cricket eating. . .because I was afraid they were going to get sick from too many."

Angelina says she too enjoys the odd cricket (gulp) and claims they taste "like potato chip[s]."

While she does admit to enjoying crickets, one Southeast Asian treat Angelina says she hasn't yet attempted are "tarantula pops": "I don't know if I can get around the fur," she says, "but you've got to try everything." TARANTULA POPS!?

What's the most "curious" thing you or your kids have ever eaten, Gorgeouses?
