Acclaimed director Tony Scott died Sunday after jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, Calif. He was 68.

Scott was well known for directing big-budget classics, and for collaborating with his older brother, director Ridley Scott.

Since the news broke last night, Hollywood figures have remembered him fondly:
