5 Stars Who’ve Eaten Very Strange Foods

While it may be great idea to approach exotic new foods with an open mind, sometimes you just have to say no or the food in question at least has a certain ‘ick’ factor involved that isn’t for anyone with a weak stomach! These 5 stars have all tried some very strange and random foods, some are dishes you wouldn’t even guess would actually be created. They’ve conquered whatever food fears they may have and opted to try something pretty peculiar. Some were happy to try the delicacy while others didn’t enjoy the experience – but if you don’t try, you don’t know!

Colin Farrell

"Winter's Tale" World Premiere - Outside Arrivals

Colin once ate a swan’s foot: “I like new food, although I ate a f**king swan’s foot in Tibet (and) it was the most depressing (thing). I was in Tibet for a couple of weeks and the people that I’d met wanted to take us out for dinner on our last night and they took us out and it was a lovely meal… and then the delicacy came out at the end and they were all like, ‘Ah, this is the…’ and out came a swan without its calf. It was like (reality TV show) Fear Factor… They gave us a plastic glove to eat it with… I went to confession afterwards: ‘Bless me father, for I have eaten swan’s foot.'”

Milla craved bone marrow during her pregnancy: “I was craving bone marrow one day, and I scoured the whole of Paris searching for the leg of a cow. When I finally found what I was looking for, I cut it in half, digging out the yellowish substance, slathering it all over bread.”

Animal Hero Awards 2013 - Arrivals

Sarah Harding has eaten charcoal: “I found out about it on a fashion website. It has a strange texture, but it doesn’t taste of anything and apparently absorbs all the bad, damaging stuff in the body. It’s not the regular charcoal you put in fires, though – I’m not that mad. I get it from a health food shop and I think it’s good for hangovers, too.”

Angelina Jolie
EE British Academy Film Awards 2014 - Arrivals

Angelina exposed her kids to the cuisine in Cambodia and was surprised when her sons fell in love with eating crickets: “My boys love to eat crickets. It’s their favorite thing. They ate them like Doritos. I had to actually ban the cricket eating at some point, because I was afraid they were gonna get sick from too many… But they’re good—they are like a potato chip.”

Tinie has eaten wild hedgehog: “When I was a child we went to see relatives in Nigeria and I’ve since been back on business. There they serve marinated and spiced bushmeat. It’s meat found in the wild, but they don’t tell you what. Hedgehogs, I’m guessing. I tasted a load and it was lovely and very earthy. You can taste the ground; that it’s been out in the wild.”
