The internet is seriously confused with Tom Cruise’s ‘unrecognizable’ face at a baseball game

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.

@RilkeHousewives posted a photo of Big Ed and Liz from the reality show 90 Day Fiancé, saying they "look" like Cruise and ex-wife Nicole Kidman.  

Twitter user @DianeSevenay said the actor looks like her “aunt.”

@Joyenz1 wondered if Cruise was getting “chunkier as he gets older.” (Warning: tweet contains explicit language.)

Meanwhile, @BettyJa08070563 speculated if the actor’s “unrecognizable” face is a sign he underwent botox.

@Azmex46 voiced out her “disappointment” when she saw Cruise in person. “What have you done to your gorgeous face,” she cried.

Journalist Merryn Porter noted that Cruise “suddenly aged dramatically” and wondered what happened to the actor. 

“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,” she tweeted.

@2p2TrollCat said the actor looks like Titanic and The Great Gatsby star Leonardo DiCaprio.

Cruise remains one of the most popular Hollywood actors among fans, appearing in films like Mission Impossible, Top Gun, and Risky Business.
