Tom Cruise was visibly upset as he left Madeo Restaurant in West Hollywood on Sunday, Aug 19. The actor did answer reporters several hours after learning about the suicide of Tony Scott, the director for two of his blockbuster films: "Top Gun" and "Days of Thunder."

The "Mission Impossible" star expressed the following sentiments on Aug, 20, reported by TMZ:

"[Scott] was a creative visionary whose mark on film is immeasurable. Tony was my dear friend and I will really miss him ... My deepest sorrow and thoughts are with his family at this time." 

Scott committed suicide on Sunday, Aug. 19, by jumping off of the Vincent Thomas Bridge in Los Angeles. He was 68 years old.

According to several witnesses, Scott jumped at about 12:30 p.m. His body was found by divers at 4:30 p.m.

Scott reportedly parked his Toyota Prius on the eastbound lane of the bridge and then proceeded to climb the fence and plunge to his passing "without hesitation," stated the coroner.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a suicide letter was discovered inside Scott's office.

Scott was the younger sibling of another famous director, Ridley Scott. The very last film the two had released together was the 2012 science-fiction flick "Prometheus," starring Charlize Theron.

The late Scott had just wrapped the filming of "Out of the Furnace" starring Christian Bale, which was slated to hit the big screen in 2013.

Several new reports indicated that Scott suffered from inoperable brain cancer before his death, according to ABC News
