Denzel Washington has paid tribute to his friend Tony Scott two years after his suicide by urging anyone suffering from depression to seek help immediately.

The Training Day star was left broken-hearted when his longtime collaborator jumped to his death from a bridge in California on 19 August, 2012.

Washington, who worked on movies including Unstoppable and Man on Fire with Scott, has now remembered his pal two years on from the tragedy, insisting he still misses Scott and hopes anyone grappling with similar issues will seek help.

In a chat with fans on Reddit.com, Washington explains, "Tony was the best... He wore his heart outside of his shirt... And I really miss him. I just put a picture up, of him, in my room, in my study in my house, and I actually had to cover it up because it was too difficult to look at him. It's almost like he was looking at the camera, like he was looking at me, and I just really miss him...

"If anybody out there is struggling - please seek help. Don't take your own life in your hands. Or if you know someone whom you think is struggling, then don't let it be said that you didn't do all you could do to help them."
