How Tom Cruise looks better than ever at 59: Star favours skin treatments over 'excessive filler'

Tom Cruise looked better than ever last night as he appeared at the Top Gun premiere in Canne

He’s been in the public eye more than half his life, but as he approaches 60 Tom Cruise is looking better than ever due to ‘laying off excessive filler’, experts have claimed.

The Top Gun star, 59, made a swoon-worthy appearance on the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival last night, looking dapper in a black tuxedo and a beachy hair look.

It’s a stark contrast from seven months ago, when the actor – famed for his good looks in his youth – looked unrecognisable at a baseball game in San Francisco.

The father-of-three sparked speculation he had fillers after sporting a fuller face during the LA Dodgers match, but looked significantly trimmer last night.

But now sporting a much more natural and distinguished appearance, he appears to have transformed his looks once again, as he continues his action star career. 

Dawn Attewell, Registered Aesthetics Nurse at therapyhouse.co.uk told FEMAIL the previous pictures were a result of ‘excessive filler’ and ‘post-procedure swelling’ but he now looks fresher thanks to a ‘hair transplant’ and ‘skin tightening treatments’.

The father-of-three sparked speculation he had fillers after sporting a fuller face during the LA Dodgers match, but looked significantly trimmer last night. But now sporting a much more natural and distinguished appearance, he appears to have transformed his looks once again, as he continues his action star career. 

‘In the infamous October 2021 picture, you can see that Tom looked swollen and puffy, which could be due to excessive filler, post-procedure swelling, or weight gain,’ she explained.

‘Often, surgical procedures such as a platysmal plasty, or neck lift, combined with a mid-facelift could create this type of swelling in these areas. 

‘I think Tom looked amazing at the Top Gun premiere – he looks fresher. 

‘He may have had Botox or filler. 

‘At almost 60, Tom’s hairline has remained relatively the same, although slightly thinning, which does suggest he may have had hair transplants. 

‘His jawline looks more contoured, which could be the result of skin tightening treatments like Morpheus8, a microneedling treatment for treatment of fine lines & wrinkles’.

Amar Suchde, founder of AMS Aesthetics, added that men can loose fat in their face as they age – but fine lines can add to a man’s look. 

‘As they age, many men tend to lose some facial fat distribution along with elastin and fibres in the skin,’ he told FEAMIL.

‘This, along with lines around the eyes, can actually look very attractive on a man, although in October, it looks like Tom sought to replenish some of the facial fat he’d naturally lost, resulting in a noticeably plumper look.

‘I suspect his aim was to try and replenish some of the features he’d lost and to give support to his facial structure, and this would most likely be carried out through a combination of fillers and Botox although of course, we don’t know if he’d put on weight around this time, too. 

‘Either way, Tom has managed to maintain his noted jawline over the years, which in many men can become lost and begin to droop.

‘In addition, his glowing complexion may indicate that Tom is having laser treatment, possibly Profhilo, which is a popular skin boosting treatment.

While Tom has never admitted getting work done, in February, retired showbusiness executive Eileen Berlin, who  became Cruise’s personal manager when he was an 18-year-old, said the actor was ‘obsessed with his looks’.

Speaking to DailyMail.com he said that plastic surgery rumours that surround him in adulthood also make sense as he was ‘so insecure about his looks that he took an entire day experimenting with poses for his first publicity headshot’.

‘Tommy has built an aura around himself. I think he will do whatever it takes to preserve his youthful image as long as possible and will fight anything that stands in his way.’

His first publicity shoot took a whole day as he struck up dozens of poses in outfits including a tank top and tight jeans.

‘Other clients would have you take just one headshot but Tommy was intent on perfection,’ the former manager said.

In September, Dr Nyla Raja, Founder of Medispa clinics in Cheshire and Harley Street, which has a raft of high profile clients, says the Mission Impossible star may well have ‘overindulged’ on fillers causing a more ‘puffy’ look.

Dr Nyla told FEMAIL: ‘It would appear Tom has overindulged in anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers which has actually had an adverse effect on his appearance. 

‘Without careful consideration to each individual patients’ facial structures’ results of fillers can make faces ‘appear distorted and unnatural’.’

Meanwhile, Dr Ross Perry, Medical Director of the Cosmedics skin clinics, suggests Cruise’s latest look, which has disconcerted some of his fans, could be a double whammy of a few extra pounds and a trip to a cosmetic clinic.

He says: ‘Tom looks significantly different in his most recent pictures and I would suggest it’s a combination of weight gain and dermal fillers.’

Dr Tijion Esho, star of Bodyfixers on Netflix agrees there’s definitely some signs of natural ageing at play: ‘As we age, we lose mid face volume and our skin elasticity reduces, which is why our skin sags and gets loose.

‘We also notice increase of fatty tissue in the lower aspects of our face and you can see this as he is showing a bit more volume around the chin and neck which can be due to this.

‘As time goes on skin that was smooth and tight gets loose and sags. This is completely natural, normal and will happen to most of us as we age.’

The actor starred in many swoon-worthy roles throughout the 1990s, including Days of Thunder in 1990

September wasn’t the first time Tom has shown a ‘puffy face’. In 2016, BAFTA viewers were shocked by the Rain Man star’s frozen appearance.

Leading the queries was Ruth Davidson, then Leader of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party, who tweeted: ‘Tom Cruise’s face. I don’t know what he’s doing to it, but he’s beginning to look like a late-90s era Sandi Toksvig. #EEBAFTAs.’ 

Tom was previously asked about surgery rumours back in a 2012 interview with Playboy magazine and he denied having gone under the knife.

He said: ‘I haven’t, and I never would.’

Cosmetic surgeon Mr Sultan Hassan FRCS(Plast) of Elite Surgical – who has not treated the actor – told FEMAIL at the time: ‘I suspect he has had botulinum toxin injections to his glabellar, forehead and crow’s feet areas within the last few weeks. I personally feel his injector has used far too much toxin resulting in a rather unnatural shiny look.

‘If you look carefully at his eyebrow positions they look heavy and rather flat, low and wider apart. You could argue that this is a rather poor result. In addition his cheek bone, cheeks and jawline looks filled out, which in the absence of general weight gain is likely due to the use of a collagen filler to plump these areas out – just look carefully at his tear troughs and you can see they are filled out.’

Miles Berry MS, FRCS consultant plastic surgeon of Cosmeticsurgery-partners.co.uk, remarked: ‘I would agree that Botox is likely to produce the smooth, unlined forehead. The cheeks are looking a tad more full too so dermal fillers would be high on the list too.

‘As to the ‘sheen’, the most likely culprit would be some form of resurfacing, probably a chemical peel.’

Leading man Tom appeared alongside his co-star Jennifer Connelly last night as they arrived at the star-studded premiere of their film Top Gun: Maverick premiere at the Palais des Festivals during the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival .

The actor who reprised his famous role as LT Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell for the film, cut a dapper figure in a classic black tuxedo, while Jennifer, 51, who plays Penny Benjamin, looked simply flawless in a striking off-the-shoulder metallic gown.

The stars were in good company as a host of famous faces stepped out to celebrate their new film at the screening including a glamorous Eva Longoria and heavily pregnant Adriana Lima, who showcased her growing baby bump in a cut-out dress.

Tom – who later received an honorary Palme d’Or award – beamed with joy as he greeted crowds at the event, with the Hollywood hunk teaming his smart black attire with a crisp white shirt, black bow tie and lace-up brogues.

The sequel to Tony Scott’s classic 1986 blockbuster Top Gun has been unanimously praised in early reviews with one even declaring that it ‘improves upon the original in every conceivable way.’

Tom, who is famous for doing his own stunts, is said to have trained to withstand g-force power and actually flew in real fighter jets for the sequel.

Peter Hoskin for the Daily Mail gave the film five stars, writing: ‘Whenever the film threatens to become too cosy, it shocks itself – and us – back into the present with another madly ambitious action sequence.’

Tom underwent a full Aviation Survival Training Curriculum before going up in the US Navy F-18, as did his co-stars. They worked up to the supersonic jets by going up in a succession of slower planes first over many months.

TOM CRUISE: HAS MISSION IMPOSSIBLE STAR GONE TOO FAR WITH FILLERS?

Dr Nyla Raja, Founder of Medispa clinics in Cheshire and Harley Street, which has a raft of high profile clients, says the Mission impossible star may well have ‘overindulged’ on fillers judging by his latest public outing. 

Dr Nyla told FEMAIL: ‘It would appear Tom has overindulged in anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers which has actually had an adverse effect on his appearance.

‘TAUT YET PUFFY’ CHEEKS

Dr Perry offers: ‘Tom’s cheeks look taut yet puffy and by having this amount of fillers placed in this area, which is said to restore plumpness which we lose as we age, it actually only makes his eyes look much smaller and gives him a chipmunk-type appearance.’ 

Dr Nyla, meanwhile, said Cruise has moved away from ‘a naturally enhanced youthful look to an exaggerated look of his facial symmetry, with over volumisation in the cheeks’ 

Dr Esho adds: ‘In terms of fillers and needle work, I can see that it’s likely he’s had subtle injectables on the cheeks for the most part to help ‘lift’ the face. 

‘It’s very important that fillers and botox are administered by well trained experts or the puffy results you can see in Tom are common. 

‘His cheeks are slightly puffy, which can often be referred to as ‘pillow’ face – in an effort to anti-age, he’s likely had filler in the cheeks to smoothen the skin and lift the mid-face but a less is more approach is advised to avoid the puffiness seen.’

NO WRINKLES AROUND THE EYES

Dr Perry says of Cruise’s eyes: ‘If you actually look at Tom’s face you will see very little laughter lines around the eye area, which is a tell tale sign of fillers. 

‘Most people opt to have around 1ml of demal filler placed to give a natural look, but looking at these images I’d say he’s gone for a lot more which just doesn’t look very natural.’

Dr Perry adds that as well as exaggeration to the cheeks, the malar area, under the eyes down towards the mouth, also looks plumper than it should.

More and more people of a certain age are turning to fillers over surgery, says Dr Nyla, Founder and Medical Director of Medispa in Cheshire, which has a raft of high profile clients. Right, cosmetic doctor Dr Tijion Esho, who appears in the Netflix series Bodyfixers. He says Madonna’s look are possibly ‘an amalgamation of decades of procedures’

FOREHEAD: POSSIBLE BOTOX? 

Dr Perry surmises: ‘I’d also suggest he’s had a small amount of Botox within the forehead as his overall complexion looks considerably smooth given his age, I’d definitely expect to see more signs of ageing in the form of lines and wrinkles.’ 

MOUTH: ZERO LAUGHTER LINES 

The verdict of Dr Perry on the Mission Impossible star’s lips: ‘Again, there’s a lack of wrinkles around the nose and mouth, a sign that fillers might have been used.’

Dr Esho suggests Cruise might be using topical creams to keep his lips looking good: ‘His lips seem to be natural – he may be using topical products at home – I’ve seen a huge change in the lip market, as consumers move from fillers to cheaper and more accessible products to plump the lips. 

‘I’ve just launched my own lip serum in my ESHO line – it’s like having your very own lip doctor in a tube.’ 

PRESERVING THAT FAMOUS JAW 

Dr Esho says: ‘His jaw also looks defined, which tells me he may have had jaw filler in the lower part of the face to balance out the cheeks. 

‘Jaw filler and cheek filler usually lasts between six and 18 months, and can cost up to from £200, depending on things like the type of product and number of syringes used, and the complexity of the area being treated.’
