The superstar who has been ruling Hollywood since the very start of his career hardly needs an introduction. Tom Cruise was born in July 1962 in New York. He has spent his childhood in many different places and by the age of 14, he had already been to 15 different schools. He is deeply religious and had once wished to become a priest.
At the age of 18, he decided to pursue a career in acting. He started with a small part in Endless Love (1981) and was lucky enough to get noticed. In the next 5 years, he managed to grab some of the top grossing films of the decade which included Top Gun (1986), The Color of Money (1986) and Rain Man (1988). He remained the highest paid actor for over two decades during 1990s and 2000s.
He continued to deliver super hits like The Vampire Chronicles (1994), Mission Impossible series (1996, 2000, 2006), Vanilla Sky (2001), etc. He has been nominated for the Oscar thrice and has a total of 63 nominations and 43 wins registered under his name at various other Awards.
The actor who is equally famous for his good looks as for his acting didn’t show even a slight change in his appearance on account of old age even as he turned 50 three years back.
This sparked rumors that he took to plastic procedures in order to maintain his looks forever. Cruise denied all such rumors in an interview to Playboy magazine and went on record to say that he never went under the knife and will never do so in the future.
He said that he himself doesn’t know the secret behind his amazing good looks.
Celebrity watchers still suspect that the actor has had a range of cosmetic interventions which include a rhinoplasty, cosmetic dentistry, midsection facelift, lower section blepharoplasty and Botox. Tom’s puffy look at various public events has made these rumors even stronger.
This was understood to be a result of the Botox and other filler injections the actor has been taking to maintain a youthful appearance. His facial skin looks rejuvenated and refreshed without any signs of ageing.
A comparison of his early pictures with the recent ones brings out a change in the shape and size of the actor’s nose. Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia has also confirmed the difference. Tom’s nose is far better defined now.
It looks almost perfect in comparison to what it was before. The thick bridge and the bulbous tip have been replaced with refined features that have improved his facial harmony to a great extent.
A discrepancy in his smile is also revealed in the comparison of his before and after plastic surgery pictures. It is believed to be the effect of cosmetic dentistry.
Tom clearly got some work done on his teeth which becomes even more prominent when he smiles. His teeth have become whiter and straighter.
A slight difference has also been noted in his eyes which appear wider than before. The appearance of his lower eyelids has improved suggesting a lower section blepharoplasty that he had at some point. After the surgery Tom got rid of the excess skin and fine wrinkles that he had around the lower eyelid.
Ever since he broke up with Katie Holmes, Tom’s attempts to look younger have become even more desperate. This might explain the puffy look that he has been carrying, suggesting a clear overdose of Botox and fillers.
Today the actor seems to be obsessed with the idea of looking young in order to reinvent his image which suffered a huge blow after his divorce with Katie.
