With a surprise appearance at the BAFTA’s last weekend, Tom Cruise certainly likes to keep his fans guessing, and now the 53-year-old has viewers questioning whether he has decided to visit a cosmetic surgeon to try and hold back his advancing years. The actor was a surprise presenter at Sunday’s awards and his appearance instantly set tongues wagging.
Leader of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party, Ruth Davidson, was first to question the actor’s new look, saying ‘Tom Cruise’s face. I don’t know what he’s doing to it.’
Many Twitter users seemed to be of the opinion that the Mission: Impossible star had undergone some sort of surgery to reduce lines and wrinkles, possibly a series of dermal filler or Botox injections. He displayed some puffiness around the cheeks and an extremely smooth forehead for a middle-aged man. Furthermore, the lines around his mouth appeared to have been reduced substantially. His face shape looked to have been altered slightly, suggesting that some sort of anti-wrinkle treatment has taken place, although not necessarily a full face-lift or an actual surgical treatment.
In previous interviews, the father-of-three stated that he has never gone under-the-knife and would never touch cosmetic surgery, despite many rumours to the contrary in recent years.
