Anthony. One of my idols. Unapologetic, passionate and one of the best storytellers on the planet. Thank you for making food so exciting. And always standing up for everything right. Horrible. Why why why. Be at peace now :(— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 8, 2018
Maybe we all wanted to hang out with him. He was that cool, fun, frank, insightful. He introduced us to distant lands and to people with different traditions. And without ever preaching, he reminded us that we humans are far more alike than different. Thank you Anthony Bourdain pic.twitter.com/QMznx4JMhS— Mia Farrow (@MiaFarrow) June 8, 2018
Anthony Bourdain lived in a way that most of us should. A seeker of the unknown & a man who exposed magnificent parts of the world to us through our TVs. I don’t even know what to say, this makes me so damn sad. I truly loved him & what he stood for.— Lucy Hale (@lucyhale) June 8, 2018

His wisdom, his insight, his humor, his compassion, his staunch resistance to the inauthentic and support of all that resonates from the heart, and his passion for life that he shared with the us....Its difficult to process a world without Anthony Bourdain.— Elijah Wood (@elijahwood) June 8, 2018
So sad to hear of #anthonybourdain’s death, a talented, worldly chef who gave Iranians a voice at a time when the country was isolated from the international community — shedding light on our culinary traditions. RIP 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/zPDBszI5Y1— Sanam Shantyaei (@SanamF24) June 8, 2018
