Is it Tom Cruise? Canadian comedian Norm Macdonald’s ghost? Or, a random dude who looks like him? The Mission Impossible star has left fans confused after looking like a whole new person at a baseball game.
Cruise caused a stir among netizens when he showed up looking puffier than usual at a National League Division Series baseball game on Oct. 9, as per Entertainment Weekly. His appearance left fans wondering what happened to him, with some speculating if he underwent plastic surgery.
Photos and videos of the actor circulated on social media, with fans feeling confused if Cruise has become a “whole new person.”
Several Twitter users noted Cruise’s similarities to Canadian stand-up comedian Norm Macdonald, with @coopercooperco noting that his ghost has “taken over” the actor. Last month, Macdonald passed away after his nine-year battle with leukemia.

Journalist Merryn Porter noted that Cruise “suddenly aged dramatically” and wondered what happened to the actor.
I get that Tom Cruise is 59 but has he suddenly aged dramatically? I mean he is pretty smooth looking but is he bloated or maybe he gained weight for a movie? Either way he looks vastly different all of a sudden pic.twitter.com/MVf4KxiEj9— Merryn Porter (@Merryn_Porter) October 12, 2021
