This is Us star Mandy Moore also sent out a tweet to her army of followers, calling Bourdain's death "utterly heartbreaking" before sharing the phone number for a suicide prevention hotline. But we were still optimistic when we pressed play, having come to trust Bourdain's clear-eyed and curious approach to the world over years of watching him travel it on both CNN's "Parts Unknown" andhis nine-season Travel Channel show "No Reservations". He often spoke about his struggles with drug use earlier in life, and his rocky path to stardom.

Taking even a cursory glance around the internet in the wake of Bourdain's sudden death proves that we're far from the only ones who feel this way about how he approached his work.
Bourdain, born in NY in 1956, graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 1978 and first became known for his 2000 book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.
