On Tuesday, the recently divorced Bourdain and Argento made their relationship Instagram official with his-and-her versions of the same pic on their personal accounts. The pair have been rumored to be dating since February.
“Another Green World photo by @Blue.lou,” Bourdan’s caption reads under a pic of the equally tatted couple.
Back in September 2016, the “Parts Unknown” host split from his wife Ottavia Busia, a mixed martial arts fighter. The pair were married in 2007 and have a 9-year-old daughter together. (This was Bourdain’s second divorce; he was married to first wife Nancy Putkoski for two decades.)
Argento, 41, is best known in the states for her role as Yelena in the 2002 action film “xXx.” She won the David di Donatello award (Italy’s version of an Oscar) in 1994 and 1996 for “Perdiamoci di vista” and “Campagna di viaggio.” The actress has two daughters of her own.
In February, the 60-year-old celeb chef and the Italian actress were photographed hand-in-hand in Rome. And Bourdain gave major props to Argento for her help on the Rome episode of “Parts Unknown.” In the episode, which aired in December, the two share plates of pasta, watch a boxing match and go grocery shopping.
“The episode would not have been possible ― or be anything like it is without the truly magnificent Asia Argento,” Bourdain wrote in December. “She’s spent a lifetime in films ― mostly in front of the cameras, but also ― and quite notably ― behind, directing most recently the remarkable and beautiful ‘Incompresa (Misunderstood).’”
Sounds like someone’s smitten.
