Tom Cruise Dines with Ridley Scott, Brother of Late 'Top Gun' Director Tony Scott (PHOTO)
Tom Cruise has united with Ridley Scott -- just two months after the director's famed brother committed suicide. The late Tony Scott -- also a director -- was perhaps best known for helming Cruise's Top Gun.
The two dined at a London restaurant on Saturday night, but they weren't alone: the actor and the Alien creator were joined by none other than R&B star Usher.
In a photo snapped at the dinner table, the superstar trio, along with two female friends, flashed smiles for the camera.
What is Cruise doing in the UK?
The 50-year-old has been working on All You Need Is Kill, co-starring Emily Blunt. But his trip across the pond hasn't been all work and no play: he reportedly got a cheeky spanking last week at Matt Damon’s raucous 42nd birthday bash at Simon Hammerstein’s London club The Box. Also on hand were Blunt, The Avengers hunk Chris Hemsworth, Bill Paxton and party organizer John Krasinski.
Since his divorce from Katie Holmes was finalized in late August, Cruise has also worked on Jack Reacher with actress Rosamund Pike, and Oblivion with former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko.
Scott, meanwhile, has been working on The Counselor with Brad Pitt. His brother tragically jumped to his death from a bridge in San Pedro, Calif., in August.
Usher, 34, also faced a devastating loss recently: his 11-year-old stepson Kyle Glover died in July following a jet ski accident.
