TOM Cruise resurfaced at an airfield this week after his fans were shocked by his unrecognizable appearance at a baseball game.
Tom, 59, was spotted getting out of his private jet at a Los Angeles landing site.
The action star-turned-pilot managed to pilot the plane and touch down on the ground.
With a blue cap on his head, the Mission: Impossible star was wearing matching pants and a T-shirt underneath his long-sleeved sweater.
After getting out of the plane, he needed a drink from his water bottle and put on his face mask.
As if he were agent Ethan Hunt in real life, Tom ended up riding his motorcycle across the streets of LA.
Tom’s latest appearance came after recent snapshots of him at a baseball game had gone viral.
Recently, the Interview With a Vampire star made a rare public appearance as he was enjoying Game 2 of the National League Division Series.
THE BASEBALL GAME
With his son Connor, 26, the movie star was watching the San Francisco Giants play the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Because of his puffy appearance, fans though could not believe it was actually the Top Gun star at the game.
Others speculated whether the Hollywood icon had gotten fillers or just gained weight.
One person wrote: “Tom Cruise has either gained weight, or he has a face full of fillers. I’m going with the fillers.”
Another person chimed in: “Hardly recognized Tom Cruise there.”
A third Risky Business fan pointed out: “Tom Cruise didn’t age, he got some awful work done on his face that bloated him like a frog.”
Another critic said: “This looks like someone wearing Tom Cruise’s face.”
A MAJOR STUNT SCENE
At the beginning of October, The Sun revealed that the Minority Report actor was learning to fly a World War Two military plane.
His training session was held at the Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire.
His pilot skills were needed for the stunt scenes in the upcoming installment of his blockbuster Mission: Impossible series.
A source from the set 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.”
The insider continued: “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.”
Back in September, Tom and his film crew celebrated after they had wrapped up shooting for Mission: Impossible 7.
