Tom Cruise Asked About Top Gun Director Tony Scott's Shocking Suicide

Posted on Mon Aug 20, 2012 08:00 AM PDT

Tom Cruise dined at Madeo Restaurant in West Hollywood last night, and the 53-year-old actor looked visibly upset after learning about the shocking suicide of his Top Gun and Days of Thunder director, Tony Scott.

Scott committed suicide on Sunday when he jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro around 12:30pm, and several eyewitnesses on the bridge and in the water saw the director leap to his death. “There was no hesitation,” said Los Angeles Police Department officer David Shelton. “There was no negotiating him off the ledge.”

Scott's body was recovered by divers around 4:30pm, and a suicide note was found in his Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge.

While Tom has yet to comment on Scott's tragic death, other celebs have taken to Twitter to pay their respects. Dane Cook tweeted, "Devastated by the death of Tony Scott. Just watched True Romance 1 of my top 5 fav movies ever a few nights ago. #RIP," and Ron Howard wrote, "No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day." Adam Shankman added, "My heart stopped when I heard of the tragic death of 1 of r most inspiring directors, Tony Scott. Rest In Peace Tony. U will be missed so…"

RIP Tony.
