Rose McGowan breaks down over Anthony Bourdain's death

Charles Garbiel, owner of the Shady Glen Diner in Turner Falls posed with Anthony Bourdain during filming of Bourdain's show in 2014

The former US President - who famously appeared on Bourdain's show "Parts Unknown" in 2016 - has taken to social media to hail the influence of the celebrity chef, who committed suicide in a hotel in France, where he's been shooting scenes for his programme.

CNN confirmed Bourdain's death and said the cause of death was suicide. His talents never ceases to amaze us and we will miss him very much. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time", the statement read further.

For one episode of his popular CNN series "Parts Unknown", Anthony Bourdain traveled to western MA to interview Dr. Ruth Potee about what she refers to now as the "epidemic of hopelessness and despair" around opioids.

Bourdain was a best-selling food, fiction and nonfiction author. "He was very encouraging and told me to continue the good work I was doing, he believed in me and I'll never forget that". "I don't know", said Newnam. One day, he said, he was told by the group that he would be a dishwasher at one of the local haunts - The Flagship Restaurant - since he was living as a freeloader and not helping pay the rent.

A gifted storyteller, Bourdain promoted haute cuisine and street food alike in his travels, encouraging viewers to "eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice". "CNN just announced this moments ago", giving CNN credit for taking "a chance on him to host a show on a news channel, and it was wildly successful".

Argento and Bourdain were dating for two years prior to the celebrity chef's tragic passing.

We're working on a more detailed remembrance of Anthony Bourdain, involving you (the community).

Bourdain is survived by his 11-year-old daughter Ariane. In January 2010, Bourdain ate a traditional bean supper the Milo Town Hall and featured it in his show "No Reservations".

'I wish him peace. For him, food, though a huge pleasure, was more importantly a storytelling tool, and a passport to the world at large.

"Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did", her statement read. He was my love, my rock, my protector.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). "I think few people fully understood what he's shows in Palestine, Iran etc did for the people of this region by showing the world the human side of these lovely cultures".

Bourdain became an outspoken advocate for the #MeToo movement after Argento revealed she had been sexually assaulted by the movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
