LOS ANGELES, July 19 (UPI) -- Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie says her sons Maddox, 9, and Pax, 7, love eating crickets, which are considered a delicacy in some Southeast Asian countries.

UsMagazine.com said the Oscar-winning film star and mother of six young children made the comments while shooting a video ad for Louis Vuitton's Core Values campaign in Cambodia, the country from which she adopted Maddox. Jolie and her partner, actor Brad Pitt, adopted Pax in Viet Nam.

"My boys love to eat crickets. It's their favorite thing," UsMagazine.com quoted her as saying.

"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 Doritos, and they wouldn't stop," Jolie added. "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."
