Jessica Chastain has tried eating durian, our favourite local delight, the KING of fruits, and she loves it. Repeat, she loves it. Made our day.

The Huntsman: Winter's War actress forced Jimmy Kimmel to try the thorny fruit on his show, bringing gloves and knives for them to cut it open themselves. Jimmy's horrified face was priceless, but the way Jessica raved about durian was even more so.

"They call it the blue cheese of fruit," she said. "I love it though! I love it, it tastes like onions and garlic and avocado and pineapple kind of like in a custard."

Jessica first tried durian while on a trip to Singapore. She even smuggled durian into her hotel while shooting a film in Thailand. Apparently, her guide in Beijing told her that if you eat too much, you'll get drunk. We assure you, Jessica, that you won't. You might have a bit of indigestion, and you'll feel a little warm, but it's nothing drinking lots of water afterwards can't cure.

Jessica Chastain, the real badass.
