Washington: Tom Cruise has expressed his thoughts and condolences for tragic director Tony Scott, who committed suicide by jumping off from Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles.
“Tony was my dear friend and I will really miss him,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Us magazine.
Cruise, who played the lead role in Scott’s ‘Top Gun’ and ‘Days of Thunder,’ said that his mark on the film industry cannot be measured.
“He was a creative visionary whose mark on film is immeasurable.
“My deepest sorrow and thoughts are with his family at this time,” he said.
Scott, 68, is said to have climbed a fence on the bridge and leapt to his death on Sunday around 12.30 pm.
According to the Los Angeles Times, police found a suicide note in the filmmaker’s office but did not disclose its contents.
He had recently finished shooting the drama ‘Out of the Furnace,’ starring Christian Bale.
