Anthony Bourdain

I Went BALLS OUT

in '90s Naked Pics

11/7/2011 4:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anthony Bourdain nudeA year before releasing the book that launched him to infamy -- "Kitchen Confidential" -- chef, author, and professional ramblin' man Anthony Bourdain let it all hang out while on vacation on St. Martin ... and TMZ has obtained the ballsy photos.

We spoke with Anthony ... who told us the pics were snapped by his now ex-wife Nancy in 1999 -- capturing Bourdain and his best bud/sous chef Steven Tempel in their element.

Anthony tells us, "I look good! Nice tan. As I haven't  seen the photos without the star, I can only hope the water wasn't too cold that day."

No reservations.

Just because a guy takes a pic in the nude doesn't make him gay. Have you ever seen the personal ads on Craigslist? Plenty of pics of straight dudes with their ***** hanging out.

Take note celebs, that's how you handle naked pics from your past. Make it a non-issue.

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

If the tables were turned, I'm sure his ex wouldn't like it.

Thanks, TMZ! That's just great. Now I'll NEVER be able to watch him eating sausage at Oktoberfest again without this image in my head.

I love Anthony Bourdain! I think he's funny and I love his show. He's real! Just because he's naked near a male friend where probably everyone is naked doesn't mean your gay. People are lame.

I know that the photo belongs to Nancy and she can do with it whatever she wants to. I just think it is a really douche thing to do to anyone.

Why does the media act so juvenile when they get ahold of nude pics? Big stinkin deal. The guy is sunbathing nude. Can't you find better material to publish?
