No more witchetty grubs?

Being a Hollywood A-lister and a mom of six children must be quite a momentous task, especially when you can't cook! However, Angelina Jolie has apparently been improving her culinary skills. Did it work?

Angelina Jolie may be a sought after A-list actress, but it's hard to picture her as a domestic goddess.

However, the Maleficent actress may soon become both because according to Us Weekly, she has been receiving cooking lessons from a personal chef in Australia to help her drastically improve her culinary skills.

Jolie has been enjoying Australia's Gold Coast with her brood while working on her upcoming film Unbroken, a true story of World War II hero and Olympic runner Louis Zamperini.

And it's a good thing that the mom of six is improving her cooking knowledge, too, because having six children all under age 12 must certainly be a nightmare to feed.

The source revealed to Us Weekly that Jolie's children — Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 7, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 5, with whom she raises with her fiancé Brad Pitt — are the "worst eaters."

The source added that feeding them can be quite a mission because they all "want to eat different things at different times." No doubt Jolie will be very impressed with her newfound culinary knowledge as she has previously admitted that her son Pax is better in the kitchen than she is.

It was previously reported that the Jolie-Pitt brood like to be adventurous with their eating and try out local cuisines, some of which have already included kangaroo meat and witchetty grubs, according to a source at The Sun newspaper.

Let's hope that the Jolie-Pitt brood will be enjoying fewer local cuisines and more home-cooked meals from now on. However, it has not been all fun and games in Australia for the star. She has been hard at work on Unbroken, and it hasn't all been smooth sailing for the actress' directorial effort. In fact, she found it difficult to get producers on board.

Jolie told Tom Brokaw, "This has been the hardest thing I've ever done."

Let's hope that all her hard work paid off!
