Shailene Woodley Eats Bugs, Calls Insects the 'Future of Food'

Shailene Woodley is keeping her hippy persona alive thanks to her recent quotes about eating all types of bugs.

After a series of oddball interviews and her stroll through New York City barefoot, the 23-year-old Insurgent star was eager to share with Nylon magazine that she consumes insects. "I've eaten ants and that was great. And June bugs, that was great," she reveals in a video for the publication. "I think the future of food is in insects, so we'll see what happens."
