0820_tom_cruise_tmz_article_1Tom Cruise is beside himself after the death of "Top Gun" director Tony Scott -- claiming, Scott "was a creative visionary whose mark on film is immeasurable."

Tom -- who starred in "Top Gun" back in 1986 -- added, "Tony was my dear friend and I will really miss him ... My deepest sorrow and thoughts are with his family at this time."

As we reported, Scott -- who directed countless major Hollywood films -- jumped to his death yesterday from an L.A. bridge, leaving behind several suicide notes for friends and family.

Scott reportedly suffered from inoperable brain cancer before his death.

really! really?    

Does anyone else get the impression that Tom has been patiently waiting for something newsworthy and relevent to happen to attach his name to? (Maybe it's just me.)

Tom you really want to say he was weak minded for taking his own life. We know what you think of depression.

TMZ, I see your Sesame Street mentality at work today. Which of your staff members learned the word "CRUSHED" today? So far Manson sang with the doors and 'crushed it' now Cruise is "crushed' by a death.
.
I seriously wonder about you people.

The idea stems from Tom jumping off couches.

Then Tom shed a tear, then wiped it away and blew his nose with a hundred dollar bill and got in his limo. He was devastated.
