Angelina Jolie's sons, Maddox, nine, and Pax, seven, love to eat crickets ''like Doritos''
Angelina Jolie's sons love eating crickets.
The 'Salt' star's two boys â adopted Maddox, nine, and Pax, seven â both love eating the insects, treating them "like Doritos," a brand of seasoned tortilla snacks.
She told the E! News network: "It's their favourite thing. They ate them like Doritos, and they wouldn't stop. They are like a potato chips.
"I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from eating too many!"
Crickets are a Common fried delicacy in Cambodia â where Maddox was born and where he and his brother tried the insects â and are also eaten in certain parts of Mexico.
Angelina â who also raises Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with partner Brad Pitt â is also partial to consuming bugs herself, revealing last year she likes to eat cockroaches, but even she admits there are a few Cambodian dishes she hasn't plucked up the courage to eat yet.
She added: "I have yet to have the tarantulas on a stick or spider soup here. I don't know if I can get around the fur, but you gotta try everything."
