Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is dating Italian star and director Asia Argento, Page Six has confirmed.
Chef Bourdain recently shot an episode of his show “Parts Unknown” in Rome with Argento — and the Italian press has reported the two have fallen for each other.
One site said they’ve “fallen in love,” and Italian magazine Chi ran pics of the pair walking hand-in-hand and also passionately kissing after shopping at a local market.
Page Six exclusively revealed last September that Bourdain was separated from his wife, Ottavia, who trains as an MMA fighter.
Bourdain’s ex has said of him, “My husband half-jokes that he married Sophia Loren, but ended up with Jean-Claude Van Damme.”
Argento is the 41-year-old daughter of iconic Italian director Dario Argento, and co-starred in “xXx” with Vin Diesel.
In a December CNN post about his Rome TV episode, Bourdain wrote, it “would not have been possible — or be anything like it is, without the truly magnificent Asia Argento.”
