You never know what a person is going through in life... On the outside everything may seem great, while underneath the surface they are a wounded soul and dying inside. My condolences to Director Tony Scott's wife, 2 young sons, family, friends & fans.
Any time i hear about someone committing sucide it really touches me... A person has to be in deep emotional pain to want to end their life....it's so sad.
Director Ron Howard sent out the following Tweet:
"No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day."
ABC News reports... Scott, 68, was perhaps best known for directing "Top Gun," starring Tom Cruise in 1986, which went on to gross more than $300 million worldwide, according to IMDB.com. The duo worked again in the 1990 film "Days of Thunder."
The British-born director also frequently worked with Denzel Washington, most recently in the 2010 film "Unstoppable." They collaborated on four other films: "Crimson Tide," "Man on Fire," "Deja Vu" and "The Taking of Pelham 123."
Scott was the younger brother of producer and director Ridley Scott. Together, the brothers formed their own production company, Scott Free Productions. Their company produced the CBS dramas "NUMB3RS" and "The Good Wife."The 2012 blockbuster "Prometheus" was the latest film released by their production company.
Other Tony Scott films include "True Romance," written by Quentin Tarantino, "The Fan," with Robert De Niro, and "Enemy of the State," starring Will Smith.
"Most of the obits for Tony Scott will mention "Top Gun" first, but my favorite will always be "True Romance." RIP," tweeted film critic Richard Roeper.
