Tragic Details About Anthony Bourdain


Rose McGowan was close to both Anthony Bourdain and Asia Argento, especially after the chef's role in taking down Harvey Weinstein. After Bourdain's passing, the actress wrote an open letter to the "behest" of his grieving girlfriend, where she revealed that Bourdain was struggling prior to his death.

Per the letter, which was excerpted by People, McGowan claimed that both Argento and Bourdain dealt with similar mental health issues. "Anthony told a mutual friend, 'He's never met anyone who wanted to die more than him,'" she wrote. The pair eventually both sought help, though McGowan claimed that Bourdain didn't "take the doctor's advice."

"Over their time together, thankfully, [Argento] did the work to get help, so she could stay alive and live another day for her and her children," McGown continued, before alleging, "Anthony's depression didn't let him, he put down his armor, and that was very much his choice. His decision, not hers. His depression won."
