Tom Cruise’s recent appearance at a baseball game in the United States has raised eyebrows as people have been taken aback by the Hollywood icon’s new look.
The 59-year-old Mission: Impossible star was spotted in the stands at Saturday’s game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants and seemed to be in good spirits amongst the fans at Oracle Park and was posing for pictures, including one with fellow movie star Danny Glover.
However, Cruise, who often cuts a striking and chiselled figure for a man his age, looked to be a little different, leading many to speculate that he’d either had plastic surgery done or that it was a lookalike that somehow fooled everyone.
However, a few people defended him against apparent body shaming, pointing out that everyone is allowed to put on weight, especially someone who is nearly 60.
This isn’t the first time that Cruise’s features have prompted discussion this year. People were equally confused after Cruise was pictured outside a curry house in Birmingham, England in August, where he was filming scenes for Mission: Impossible 7.
Cruise has been firmly in the headlines this year as his filming schedule for Mission: Impossible 7 and the eighth film in the franchise has taken him all over the globe, including landing a helicopter in someone’s back garden in Warwickshire. He’s also been spotted a host of sporting events including Wimbledon, the Euro 2020 final and the British Grand Prix.
