Nicole Kidman: ‘I used to eat ants’


Nicole Kidman gave up eating ants because they “don’t taste good”.

The Big Little Lies star opened up about her unusual habit in an interview with Britain’s The Mail On Sunday newspaper’s You magazine, and revealed that, when it comes to what she puts in her mouth, she’ll try pretty much anything

“I used to eat ants as well, but ants don’t taste good … Just sort of off,” the 51-year-old reflected. “Just acidic-y. Kind of weird. And I’ll eat anything. I’ve eaten almost anything. Witchetty grubs, worms and insects.”

The actress went on to share that she enjoys spending time outdoors and often goes hiking with husband Keith Urban – and they even take their pet cats along with them.

“I really am a cat person. I’ve just got one of those carriers… a cat carrier that’s a backpack and it has a window that they can peek out of and it’s got air and everything, and they love it,” she insisted. “It is really cute. They hop in. They can’t wait to get in.

“I was actually going to post a picture of it and then I thought, ‘Oh, I don’t want to do that’,” the Batman Forever star quipped.
