Tony Scott Had Inoperable Brain Cancer. Yeesh.

The Superficial / August 20, 2012

If you’re wondering why Tony Scott jumped off a bridge yesterday, or at least were before you read the headline, ABC News is reporting the director had inoperable brain cancer so it was The Hunger Games! which suggests he decided to go out on his own terms which, in all seriousness, is badass in my book. Suck it, cancer:

The Coroner’s Office found several notes to loved ones in Scott’s car, a spokesman told The Associated Press. A suicide note was later found at his office, according to the AP.
“I can confirm that Tony Scott has passed away. The family asks that their privacy is respected at this time,” Scott’s spokesman, Simon Halls, said in a statement, according to the AP.

Considering a ton of people on the bridge and in the water witnessed Tony’s suicide in broad daylight, I’m going to assume his morning to-do list had exactly two items on it. 1. “Don’t die of fucking brain cancer.” 2. “Freak out a bunch of hipsters in San Pedro.” His only regret is not grabbing a pair of black-rimmed glasses on the way down. “These aren’t even prescription!” I like to believe he’d yell.

UPDATE: So, funny story
