The 50-year-old shot to fame after he starred in Top Gun, a film directed by Scott where he played a fighter pilot.

On August 19, the British 68-year-old leapt off the Vincent Thomas Bridge at the Los Angeles Harbor around 12:30 p.m.

His body was found a few hours later by divers. He left a suicide note in his office and it was reported today he was battling inoperable brain cancer, which may have spurred the suicide.

In addition to working with Scott on Top Gun, Tom starred in his film Days of Thunder, where he met ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
