Anthony Bourdain on Nightline: "Angry Anthony Is Happy Anthony"

Anthony Bourdain is equal parts brilliant, snarky, and, well, hot. He's the hard-drinking, chain-smoking, tattoo-sporting, drug-using bad boy from your younger days all grown up. Make that, mostly grown up.

With a family, a hit show on the Travel Channel, and a series of books, Bourdain has toned it down a  bit.

In this Nightline interview, Bourdain confesses between bouts of bleeped-out cursing that he spends a lot of this time watching Nick Jr. in his jammies with his daughter. Probably with a PBR and a big plate of street food at his side.

When asked if he has completely mellowed, Bourdain replies, "Angry Anthony is happy Anthony. Sometimes you just want to throw rocks at people."

Watch the awesomeness that is Tony Bourdain after the jump.
