IN AN apparent suicide, there is no reporting on why the famed director took his own life. It proves that no matter the success or what you might think someone’s life is like looking in, we never know the personal torments of anyone.
Several witnesses told police they saw Scott get out of his Toyota Prius, which was parked on the bridge, about 12:30 p.m. Then he scaled an 8- to 10-foot fence and jumped off without any hesitation, law enforcement sources said.
[...] His debut feature, 1983′s vampire movie “The Hunger,” starred Catherine Deneuve and established Scott’s cinematic style. He followed that movie with “Top Gun,” which not only boosted the career of Tom Cruise but also ushered in a series of Scott’s action movies, which included “Days of Thunder,” also starring Cruise, and “Crimson Tide,” starring Denzel Washington.
While his movies were consistent box-office hits, he rarely attracted critical praise and was never nominated for an Academy Award.
He was more successful with reviewers in television, however, for his work on “The Good Wife.”
