Making for a tragic start to the week in the entertainment world, director Tony Scott reportedly took his own life in Long Beach, California on Sunday (August 19).

The 68-year-old, who’s best known for helming the hit Tom Cruise film “Top Gun,” is said to have committed suicide by jumping off of the Vincent Thomas bridge.
