Angelina Jolie is taking the celebrity diet to a new level.

Jolie appeared on BBC World News from Cambodia while filming her latest directorial effort, “First They Killed My Father.” The actress and director discussed her high-profile split from Brad Pitt with journalist Yalda Hakim, but one of the more memorable moments came when Jolie ate scorpions and tarantulas with her kids.

“Crickets — you start with crickets. Crickets and a beer, and then you kind of move up to tarantulas,” Jolie says in the clip (below) while removing the tarantulas’ fangs with her fingers, preparing them for cooking.

Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father,” which premiered in Cambodia over the weekend, tells the real-life story of the Khmer Rouge genocide told through the eyes of a child. It is her follow-up to 2015’s “By the Sea,” which she starred in alongside Pitt.
