Tom Cruise, 59, got some fans talking when he was snapped at a baseball game with a seemingly fuller face. The Mission Impossible actor enjoyed Game 2 of the National League Division Series, watching the San Francisco Giants play the Los Angeles Dodgers, with his son Connor, 26.
Some fans couldn't believe it was the Top Gun star, while others speculated over what had caused his transformation. "What has Tom Cruise done to his face."(sic) one fan queried on Twitter. "This looks like someone wearing Tom Cruise's face." another person posted. Another chimed in: "Hardly recognized Tom Cruise there."
• Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell's mission is to remain good friends However, some fans rushed to the Jerry Maguire star's defence. "Listen I don’t like Tom Cruise at all (AT ALL), but I’m seriously sick of Twitter trashing people for their weight fluctuations. people are allowed to gain and lose weight, and it’s really nunya!!! stop being fatphobic."(sic) they wrote. Another said: "Tom Cruise putting some weight on in his face because he's probably not filming a movie requiring him to be in not-human shape and getting memed all over for it feels awfully yucky to me."(sic) Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Tom for comment.
A source told The Sun: “Tom had started to learn to fly a Boeing Stearman biplane earlier this year for a major stunt scene in Mission: Impossible 8. “It’s obviously a highly skilled task but as usual he has no plans to cut any corners or bring in a stuntman. “Filming has only just wrapped on Mission: Impossible 7 but Tom has not given himself a break. “And trying to film jaw-dropping scenes with an 80-year-old plane is particularly dangerous.”
