Tom Cruise new look sparks Norm MacDonald conspiracy theories
Tom Cruise’s puffy face led to social media to compare the actor’s appearance to late comedian Norm Macdonald.
However, it didn’t stop at the comparisons between the pair as some fans shared conspiracy theories about Cruise’s full look.
Twitter users claimed Norm had possessed the Jack Reacher actor’s body.
“Norm Macdonald’s ghost has taken over Tom Cruise. Only god knows what this entails,” one wrote.
Some social media observers shared the conspiracy that Tom is preparing to play Norm Macdonald in an upcoming biopic.

“Norm Macdonald’s final joke is that he’s taken over Tom Cruise’s face shape.”
Tom Cruise ‘fat’ appearance may be surgery related
The Mission Impossible actor’s appearance has sparked debate as to whether Tom Cruise has just gained weight and is aging naturally or if he had cosmetic work done.
Dr. Nyla Raja told DailyMail that the actor’s appearance is a reaction to anti-aging fillers.
“It would appear Tom has overindulged in anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers which has actually had an adverse effect on his appearance, Raya told the publication, adding:
“Without careful consideration to each individual patients’ facial structures’ results of fillers can make faces appear distorted and unnatural.”
Other cosmetic experts suggested that Cruise’s latest look is due to aging and weight gain rather than cosmetic surgery.
Another medical expert told the publication that Tom’s look might be a combination of fillers and weight gain.
