“See the hard part where you have the teeth? You take the fangs out,” she says—nonchalantly, might we add—while prepping a spider for a quick meal in Cambodia.

 

 

Angelina Jolie’s humanitarian work cuts across dozens of charities, UNICEF, ONE Campaign, and UNHCR included. In an exclusive interview with BBC News, she talks about her recent work on a film that depicts a true-life account of the Cambodian genocide run by the Khmer Rough Communist organization. Through the film, she hopes not only to raise awareness of the genocide, but to encourage the Cambodian people to speak about the traumatic tragedy more often.

 

“There is a truth to the survival during the [Cambodian] war, of course. When people were being starved, they were able to survive on things like this, and they did,” Jolie explains, while stir-frying scorpions, crickets, and spiders in a hot cast iron pan, before tossing in sliced red chilies and a few greens.
