The 39 year old landed his big break in the famous director's 2004 movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and still holds dear the time he shared with the award-winning filmmaker.
And as a special reminder of the audition that launched his career, Scott recently dusted off a note from Scorsese, which was being held in a Los Angeles storage unit for safe-keeping, and "tastefully" displayed it on the wall to celebrate his long road to success.
According to New York Magazine, the letter reads, "Dear Adam, Welcome to The Aviator. I'm very glad you're doing this film. Marty Scorsese."
