Shepherd Braved Bizarre Delicacy At Producer's Party

Shepherd Braved Bizarre Delicacy At Producer's Party

Actress Cybill Shepherd once tasted "goat balls" at a showbiz party after late actor John Candy refused to eat the delicacy.

Shepherd was a guest at Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis' home when he offered around the bizarre canape to his famous guests.

But even portly funnyman Candy refused to try the dish, so Shepherd proved herself by chowing down on the sickening snack.

She tells Britain's Empire magazine, "When I was working on a film called Married To It that Dino De Laurentiis was producing, I went to his house and they served barbecued goat.

"He offered the prize - I'm talking roasted goat balls - to John Candy, but John wasn't touching it. So I tried it, just to show them I was brave. That's something you don't get offered every day."
