'I haven't and I never would': Tom Cruise dismisses the idea his youthful appearance is down to plastic surgery
He turns 50 in two months but Tom Cruise hardly seems to have aged since he became a full-fledged superstar thanks to his role in 1986’s Top Gun.
And while it could easily be assumed that the actor has turned to plastic surgery to maintain his youthful appearance, the star has now spoken out to insist he has not gone under the knife.
He even went one step further to claim he would ‘never’ resort to cosmetic surgery in order to turn back the clock.
The Mission Impossible star spoke out in an interview with Playboy magazine, and when asked if he has had any work done, Tom said: ‘I haven’t and I never would.’
The star laughed when he was asked how he manages to look half his age, and said: ‘I honestly have no idea. I work. I’m always with family. I train, go without sleep. I just go hard.’
The Hollywood heavyweight also used the interview as an opportunity to gush about his love for wife of five years Katie Holmes, 33.
Tom said: ‘She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity.
‘She’s funny and charming, and when she walks into the room, I just feel better. I’m a romantic. I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that.’
He added: ‘I don’t know what to say – I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.’
The pair, who are parents to six-year-old daughter Suri, married in November 2006 in a Scientology ceremony.
And while he is an advocate of the religion, Tom told the men’s magazine that he isn’t one to impose his beliefs onto other.
Has Tom Cruise had plastic surgery?
Is it just us or is Tom Cruise looking creepily younger and shinier than ever?
The Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol star will be hitting the big 5-0 mid next year, but in recent pics he seriously looks about 30! Or younger!
And now a Brazilian magazine has 'outed' the actor, claiming he's had chats with a renowned cosmetic surgeon.
According to Hollywood Reporter, EPOCA magazine claims: 'Cruise has had meetings with world famous Brazilian surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy. Cruise even invited the good doctor to the 2009 Rio premiere of Knight and Day. And on that same trip, Cruise, wife Katie Holmes and daughter Suri were photographed having lunch at Pitanguy's private island in Brazil's Bay of Kings.'
Could it be that Tom is more than just a friend to the 'good doctor'?
Other tabloids are reporting that the actor's dreamy complexion is the result of an epic skincare regime. The Mail Online claimed he 'slathers' on wife Katie Holme's foundation, and even uses her mascara, and Hollywood Reporter speculates that Tom might just be using Dr. Pitanguy's exclusive skincare line.
Whatever his secret, Tom's certainly looking, erm, fresh for someone approaching half a decade.
In the past a Brazilian magazine has "outed" Cruise, claiming he's had chats with a famous plastic surgeon.
According to Hollywood Reporter, EPOCA magazine revealed: "Cruise has had meetings with world famous Brazilian surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy. Cruise even invited the good doctor to the 2009 Rio premiere of "Knight and Day". And on that same trip, Cruise, wife Katie Holmes and daughter Suri were photographed having lunch at Pitanguy's private island in Brazil's Bay of Kings."
Other tabloids reported that Cruise's dreamy complexion is the result of an epic skincare regime. "The Mail Online" claimed he "slathers"on Katie Holme's foundation and even uses her mascara and "Hollywood Reporter" estimates that Tom might just be using Dr. Pitanguy's exclusive skincare line.
Whatever his secret, Tom's undoubtedly looking fresh for someone who has reached half a decade.
It wouldn't be an exaggeration to claim that Tom Cruise hardly appears to have aged since he became a Hollywood superstar thanks to his role in 1986’s "Top Gun".
The question is: "How does Tom Cruise respond to plastic surgery rumors?"
Well, Tom Cruise insists that he has not gone under the knife.
He even went one step further to state he would "never" resort to plastic surgery in order to turn back time.
To be more exact, Tom opened up in an interview with Playboy magazine and when asked if he has had any work done, Tom quoted as saying: "I haven’t and I never would."
Tom Cruise even laughed when he was asked how he manages to look half his age and replied: "I honestly have no idea. I work. I’m always with family. I train, go without sleep. I just go hard."
The question is: "What is plastic surgeon experts' opinion about Tom Cruise's youthful looks? Has he gone under the knife or not?"
According to Dr. Anthony Youn, a Detroit-area board-certified plastic surgeon who runs the blog "Celebrity Cosmetic Surgery," Tom Cruise looks at least a decade younger than he should.
"I don't think he's found the Fountain of Youth, but he's done the next best thing- found a good plastic surgeon," claims Youn. He looks like someone who has had a plethora of the best cosmetic treatments available."
Youn, who hasn't treated Cruise, believes he's had multiple plastic surgery procedures done. "To look as good as he does, it's not possible to have had just one thing done."
Dr. Youn suspects Cruise has had Botox injections to smooth the lines between his eyebrows. He also considers that he's had a filler like Restylane injected into the deeper wrinkles of his face, particularly the nasal-labial folds that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Youn believes he's also had injections of facial plumper, such as Sculptra. "This guy is very lean, like the Madonna of men," reveals Youn. "He has almost no fat on his body yet his face has retained softness. A 50-year-old guy with no body fat should be rugged looking, gaunt and have no fat on his face."
It has to be noted that Scuptra is typically injected every six weeks for three or four treatments. The effect is so gradual that people often don't even spot it. "It literally is the Benjamin Button effect," Youn reveals.
But Youn noticed that it's not just Cruise's face that looks younger. His neck does as well. At his age, he'd expect him to have loose skin under his neck, which he doesn't, Youn claims. And while he doesn't think Cruise has had a facelift, he suspects he's having regular skin-tightening treatments. One candidate is ReFirme, a light-based treatment that combines radio frequency and infrared light. Typically that's done about once a month on a regular basis.
All these treatments can cost tens of thousands of dollars, Youn reveals, and the effect will vanish unless they're repeated. "For a normal person on a budget it would be hard to keep up, but for him, it's not a big deal."
Youn says while Cruise looks as good as he did back when he was starring in 1992's "A Few Good Men," he wouldn't recommend he do anything in addition besides maintenance.
Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia claims: "I’ve seen images of him as a younger man. He seems to have had a nose or two."
The majority of plastic surgeon experts believe that Tom Cruise has had at least one nose job and more recently, anti-aging procedures rejuvenation procedures like fillers and also laser skin treatments like Fraxel or CoolTouch.
He is rumored to be the subject of a recent Blind Item making the rounds:
"In the late 00′s, his face was starting to sag and lose its elasticity. His face pretty much fluttered in the breeze as he ran. He had lines around his eyes and bags under them."
"Now, frankly, this is not a big deal. All faces age. Really! But this ego maniacal liar wants you to believe that he is no mere mortal, and that his looks are all natural because he lives such an extraordinary life. That’s right, People! He’s not like you! He works hard to stay young! He has never had plastic surgery and never will! Or so he claims."
"Here’s the truth: He had a nose job when he was in his teens (he had the bridge thinned out). He had his teeth completely redone (although we wouldn’t include teeth in the plastic surgery category). He had his eyeballs replaced. He had a mid-section face lift and lower blepharoplasty (eye job) around 2009. He is currently holding off on upper eye work (because that would drastically change his look). Now he just has regular injections of Botox and Restylane to freeze things up and plump them out. Hey, it’s good work, he doesn’t look "done", and his face settled in nicely six months after the plastic surgery. But it’s still plastic surgery. And he is still a liar. (via Blind Gossip)"
Judging by the before and after photos it is more than obvious that Tom Cruise has definitely had plastic surgery. It appears that Tom is such a perfectionist that has turned himself into Benjamin Button. As for the tweets about Tom Cruise's youthful appearance are hilarious! To give you an example: "Tom Cruise is totally Benjamin Buttoning"
