During Anthony Bourdain’s last interview, the celebrity chef dished on one of the worst moments in his relationship with Hollywood actress, Asia Argento. The chef said one day, Asia turned toward him after a bad day, and said she “had a really bad day with the director.”
In the interview published by Popula, Anthony claims she came home one day and was “f*cking furious.” Asia said to him, “f*ck you too! You always wanna win!”
Anthony says he was “so hurt by this.” The chef explained to the writer, Maria Bustillos that he doesn’t need to win. He needed to “survive.” As fans of the Parts Unknown host know, Anthony had been dating Asia for a year when he took his life at the beginning of June last month.
They met during an episode of Parts Unknown in 2016 and started dating a year later. The 42-year-old actress collaborated with Bourdain on his show and directed one episode in Hong Kong.
Shortly after he passed away, Asia released a statement saying that Anthony “gave all of himself in everything that he did.” Argento referred to Anthony in her statement as her “rock” and “protector.”
Also, in the same interview, the chef dished on his feelings toward disgraced producer, Harvey Weinstein, whom Anthony claims should’ve been behind bars, rather than seeking out therapy at a clinic in Arizona.
Bourdain said that he’d like to see Harvey “beaten to death in his cell.” In the interview, Anthony described, vividly, how he wished Weinstein had passed away, alone, without anyone to care for him, and after just suffering a stroke.
As it was previously reported, Bourdain passed away at the beginning of June while in France, due to suicide by hanging.
And this past weekend, a number of Hollywood stars signed a letter to the Los Angeles Times in defense of Asia, who had been the target of social media trolls. People online accused Argento of playing a role in Bourdain’s passing.
