Salma HayekMexican beauty Salma Hayek has confessed that she eats bugs.

The star made an appearance at the David Letterman's chat show where she stunned the TV host with stories of how bugs were considered a delicacy back home.

"We eat bugs - and we have many recipes for some of them," The Sun quoted Hayek as saying.

"Escamoles, which are the eggs of these little ants, are amazing fried with a little guacamole. And there are many different recipes for worms," she added.

When questioned if she eats insects often, the Frida star replied, "Not routinely but, look, I''m salivating... they''re delicious."

Although Hayek has been working in Hollywood for a long time, her English still remains hilariously flawed.

Describing the rare nature of escamoles in Mexico, she added, "They're not easy to find - they''re delicatessens."

However Letterman corrected her, "They're delicacies. Delicatessens are easy to find."

Hayek responded, "They're delicacies, yes - sorry."

"My French is getting a little better, but my English is getting a lot worse," she added.
