Hollywood is remembering Anthony Bourdain, who was found dead in his hotel room on Friday morning from suicide. He was 61 years old. The famed chef and travel host was in France filming new episodes of his series Parts Unknown for CNN.
Colleagues and fans took to social media to express their grief over his passing including fellow chef Gordon Ramsay, who also included the numbers to suicide prevention hotlines in the U.S. and the UK. "Stunned and saddened by the loss of Anthony Bourdain. He brought the world into our homes and inspired so many people to explore cultures and cities through their food. Remember that help is a phone call away US:1-800-273-TALK UK: 116 123," he tweeted.
Asia Argento, Bourdain's girlfriend at the time of his death, shared a heartfelt message, calling the late chef her protector. "Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generousity knew no bounds. He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated. My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine," she wrote on Twitter.
Even Donald Trump offered consolation, saying "I want to extend to his family my heartfelt condolences," to reporters Friday morning. "I enjoyed his show, he was quite a character."
Celebrities including Tom Colicchio, Barack Obama (who traveled to Vietnam with Bourdain for Parts Unknown in 2016), Neil deGrasse Tyson, Chrissy Teigen and more also offered their condolences, encouraging those who may be struggling with depression to seek the help that they need.
