Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow Would Eat A 'Battered Cockroach'

Gwyneth Paltrow would eat a "battered cockroach".

The actress - who is married to Coldplay star Chris Martin, a practicing vegetarian - admits fried food is her biggest culinary weakness and she thinks she could even snack on the insects if they were cooked to a crisp.

Speaking to talk show host Conan O'Brien, she said: "Fried food is my weakness. I don't have a sweet tooth. You could fry a cockroach in batter and basically I'd eat it."

The Oscar-winning star used to adhere to a strict macrobiotic diet, which is mainly comprised of vegetables and fish and doesn't allow you to consume any dairy or processed foods.

But her newfound love of frying has inspired her to purchase a deep fat fryer for her home and she often cooks herself and her two children, Apple, six, and Moses, four, calorie-laden meals.

She explained: "I do [have a deep fat fryer]. And I love it. I deep fry a lot of French fries, the good style, like double fried. Fried zucchini, I make fish fingers for the kids, fried chicken."

Gwyneth, 38, seemed to develop her hunger for fried foods when she was filming upcoming movie 'Country Strong' in Nashville and dined out most evenings in local restaurants.

She previously said: "Never have I met such warm people, heard such good music, eaten so much fried chicken. I could go on and on. At a place called Whiskey Kitchen the sweet potato fries are delicious, the fried chicken sliders do the trick, and the biscuits are the best I sampled in the city of Nashville. What more could you ask for?"
