Tony Scott Dies in Apparent Suicide

62 posts in this topic

TheWrap.com (a web site I've never heard of, so I'm hoping it's fake) is reporting Tony Scott, director of many awesome films, has committed suicide

Director Tony Scott jumped off the Vincent Thomas bridge near Long Beach on Sunday and died from his injuries. He was 68.

The Los Angeles coroner confirmed to TheWrap that Anthony David Scott of Beverly Hills jumped off the bridge and died on Sunday. That is the full name of the British-born "Top Gun" and "Crimson Tide" director, who has lived in Los Angeles for many years.

Man, you really have to be depressed to want to do a Peter Pan off a bridge. That does not sound like a fun way to leave.

So much for top gun 2! I was really hoping he was going to direct it.

This is so sad. This man was such an awesome director. Why would he kill himself? That's the big question. What was so bad that he had to commit suicide? He had just rapped the production of the mini series Coma on A&E with his brother Ridley Scott.

I am in an absolute state of shock right now. I still can't believe it.

Damn :/

Clinical depression it's my first guess. Or something he just did that he knew will reach the public.

Well he left a suicide note but the authorities have yet to release its content. This world is crazy man. One day you are here, the next you are not. I am so sad to hear that he committed suicide. He was such a great director, like his brother Ridley.

Another possibility is a late stage terminal disease diagnosis. A lot of people check out rather than suffer the process.

"Early reports indicate that Scott was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer."

In the wikipedia article...

Oh, I heard he jumped but I thought it was bungee jumping...

If it was suicide then I hope it hurt. I have no sympathy for suicidal people, selfless people!

Opps yes I did mean selfish!

Of course it's selfish, he's left behind a wife and two children. Think how they will feel now, he's not thought about their trauma, ie selfish.

He can get help or could of.

Fair enough if your severly paralised, but he wasn't.

If your view is different then great, but thats my view.

For all you know he discussed it with his wife and kids, and this was just the way he chose to go when he felt the time was right..

Not the way I'd chose, mind you, but I don't falt him for it.

Additionally not everyone can cope, it's something to pity, yes, but to wish for him to suffer just because he couldn't emotionally [ or perhaps physically ] deal with it is just harsh.

For all you kow he DIDN'T discuss it with his wife and kids, and he didn't as he left a note.

Why would he leave a note if he'd discussed it...

Any who said anything about suffering :/ I said "I hope it hurt" not "I hope he suffered"

All his loved ones will now be suffering though...

Before you judge anyone who has committed suicide, take a walk in the mindset that puts you in such a place!

Quite. If you've never experienced depression then you simply cannot paint it as black and white, and say they're selfish.

Very sad news - I feel so sorry for anyone that feels things have gone that bad in their life that suicide is the only option :(

Thats just the excellent thing, you've both shot yourself in the foot about "be in the depression"

I'm likely to know more about it than yourselfs :huh:

Thats why I know suicide/suicidal thoughts its a VERY selfish thing.

I'm hoping this will never happen, but if it's yourself, friend, mother, father etc you'll understand it's very selfish.

I agree with Dan in some parts

I think Suicide is a very selfish thing to do, think how your wife and kids would feel knowing that you were that depressed that you thought the only thing you could do was kill yourself

but i do understand also the way that someone could feel like that

Maybe it's a selfish thing for some, others it might not be. Maybe he didn't want his family see him go through it. Ever have a family member die slowly of a terminal cancer?

I very VERY much doubt that! For the record, it CAN be selfish, but within other situations can be SELFLESS!

Moreover, I never mentioned depression, and don't suggest I shot myself in the foot, because you just put your foot right in your mouth!

Ever have a family member kill thereself and absolutely hate yourself because they felt like suicide was a better answer than coming to talk to you about it?
