Bone broth isn't the only dish Shailene Woodley loves to eat. She also can't get enough of two bug varieties.

"I've eaten ants and that was great," the Insurgent star told Nylon magazine, when asked about the strangest thing she's ever chowed down on. "And June bugs, that was great. I think the future of food is in insects, so we'll see what happens."

She added, "I had pig's feet in Spain a few months ago and that was awesome. They're so gelatinous. It felt great for my stomach."

In addition to her affinity for bugs, Shailene recently gushed over her love for bone broth, telling MTV News, "Bone broth. I am telling you, it is the s**t. It is everything." She went on to share her recipe for it following her appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman.
