Top Gun Director Tony Scott Leaps to Death from Bridge

Director Tony Scott, whose box-office hits included Top Gun, ‘Days of Thunder and Beverly Hills Cop II, died after jumping from a bridge in Los Angeles Harbor, the Los Angeles Times reports. He was 68.

Witnesses told authorities that Sunday at around 12:35 p.m. the filmmaker left his parked Toyota Prius on the Vincent Thomas Bridge, scaled a fence and then leapt without hesitation. A note with contact information was left in the vehicle, says the newspaper.

Los Angeles Port police pulled his body from the water. A suicide note was later recovered in his office, reports the Times. Its contents have not been disclosed.

The British-born Scott, the younger brother of director-producer Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator), lived in Beverly Hills. He had twin sons with his third (and current) wife, actress-model Donna Wilson.

Family spokesman Simon Halls confirmed Scott’s death and said the family requests “that their privacy be respected at this time.”

Ridley and Tony Scott ran Scott Free Productions, whose TV shows include The Good Life. Tony Scott frequently worked with Denzel Washington, on Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, Deja Vu and The Taking of Pelham 123. Most recently they collaborated on Unstoppable.

Scott recently finished shooting the drama Out of the Furnace, starring Christian Bale.

In a Tweet Sunday, director Ron Howard wrote, “No more Tony Scott movies. Tragic day.”

Katie Holmes Visited Ohio ‘Many Times’ While Married to Tom Cruise

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise

Despite his recent split from Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise remains focused on his family.

Before preparing for role in the action film All You Need is Kill (set to start production in a few weeks in the U.K.), Cruise, 50, spent several blissful days vacationing at Disney World with daughter Suri.

Meanwhile, Holmes recently returned from a trip to Toledo, Ohio, where the actress, 33, and Suri visited Holmes’ family and even made time for a visit to the local mall.

Contrary to reports that this was the first time 6-year-old Suri met her cousins, a source close to Holmes says, “Katie visited Ohio with Suri many times” while she was married to Cruise.

The notion that Cruise kept Suri from her cousins is far from the truth, says a source.

“To say Tom prevented anything is a gross lie. He not only didn’t prevent [Suri having a relationship with Holmes’ family] but encouraged it and paid for it!” the source explains. “The first several birthday parties Katie and Tom threw for Suri had the family and cousins come to town – all expenses were paid for by Tom.”

Holidays were always a family affair for the couple, the source says, no matter where their filming schedules took them. Holmes and Suri spent one Thanksgiving in Toledo with Cruise’s teenage children, Bella, 19, and Connor, 17, while the actor was in Austria shooting Knight & Day and couldn’t make it home in time to join the family.

“Her entire family spent at least two Christmases with Tom and Katie in Telluride,” the source adds.

Besides celebrating holidays together, Cruise also invited Holmes’ family to a number of other activities. “[He] also invited the family – cousins included – to New Orleans this past [spring] for the Final Four.”
