Tony Scott Had Brain Cancer

Tony Scott 2

If you're like us, you have been wondering why a vibrant, successful man like Tony Scott would take his own life.

Many have assumed a secret battle with depression, but it looks like that was incorrect.

According to a source close to the Top Gun director, he had inoperable brain cancer.

We can only assume from this news that Tony's suicide was not a measure of desperation and sadness, but rather a choice to spare himself a

Director Tony Scott Leaps To His Death, Commits Suicide In San Pedro

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

Oh no! Such sad Hollywood news.

Director Tony Scott leapt to his death on Sunday afternoon. The man pulling the strings behind the scenes on films like Top Gun, True Romance, Man On Fire and most recently Unstoppable, jumped off of the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California.

Sources say that witnesses called 911 when they saw the 68-year-old park his Toyota Prius on the bridge, scale a barrier fence and then take his own life "without hesitation."

Authorities searched the murky water and eventually discovered Ridley Scott's younger brother's body four hours after he had jumped. A suicide note was found in his office.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Donna and two young sons during this difficult time. He was a talented filmmaker and we'll miss his continued contributions to the entertainment industry, but have plenty of great movies to remember him by.

Rest in peace, Tony.

DreamWorks Feels The Need, The Need For Speed!

Need For Speed Fast And Furious DreamWorks Paul Walker Vin Diesel The Rock

Sweeeeeeet!

The Need For Speed flick we told you about is progressing faster and more furiously than we imagined, LOLz!!

DreamWorks recently acquired the rights to the script based off of ridiculously successful video game franchise, and studio execs promise this won't be some boring retread!!

Instead, they'll put the pedal to the metal and make a gritty action/adventure in the spirit of iconic '70s flicks like Bullit and Vanishing Point.

Were totes excited about this

Kelly McGillis Weds Longtime Girlfriend

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLove LineLGBT

Top Gun actress Kelly McGillis has married longtime girlfriend Melanie Leis in a civil union in Collingswood, New Jersey.

The two met 10 years ago when Leis was a bartender at a restaurant owned by McGillis and her husband at the time, Fred Tillman.

You may remember, McGillis came out back in 2009, saying, "That was one of those moments when somebody asked me a question, my kids had gone from home, so I really didn't have to protect anyone by skirting the question, and I just decided to be absolutely honest."

We're so happy she found the courage to come out!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
