Salma Hayek Adheres to a Diet of Bugs?

While appearing on an episode of David Letterman recently, Salma Hayek copped to a little known and incredibly strange bit of trivia: she eats bugs.

The actress, who recently starred in “Grown Ups” and announced her upcoming role in the animated film “Puss in Boots”, told Letterman that she frequently dines on ants, worms and grasshoppers.  What the what?

While Hayek doesn’t follow any specific diet plan, of her tendency towards insect eating she said,  âEURoeâEUR¦the eggs of these little ants, fried, are amazing, with a little guacamole. And the wormsâEUR¦ there are many, many different recipes for these.âEUR

While in certain areas of the world insects are considered a delicacy, packing a high-protein punch, it definitely strikes me as odd that a Western woman with money to burn chooses to eat bugs.

Is this the key to the 44-year-old Mexican native’s svelte figure?  If so, would you be willing to dive in?
