TOM Cruise was spotted with an unexplained mark on his cheek as he filmed Mission:Impossible weeks after his puffy face sparked surgery rumours.
The 59-year-old Hollywood star’s very different appearance at a baseball game in the US recently shocked fans, with many insisting he’d had fillers.Tom Cruise was pictured with an unexplained mark on his cheek while filming Mission:Impossible 8[/caption] Tom grinned as he checked out the vintage plane he’d be filming in[/caption] The actor fit snugly into the cockpit[/caption]
Others suggested he had simply gained weight, but the age-defying star looked in fine shape on the set of his latest film.
He was in high spirits as he shot the blockbuster action flick at Duxford Aerodrome, Cambs.
Wearing a New York Yankees cap and quilted coat, Tom flashed a gleaming smile.
He was pictured fist-bumping crew members as he strode across the airfield in the crisp sunshine.
The star zipped up an RAF pilot suit and took control of a beautiful yellow Boeing-Stearman Model 75.
The setting was certainly fitting for the screen legend. Duxford sells models featuring Tom’s 1986 Top Gun character Pete “Maverick” Mitchell flying a P-51D Mustangplus Airfix kits of his F-14 Tomcat from the movie and T-shirts.

Top Gun fans will see Tom back as Maverick when the sequel lands next year.
Recently the movie star was spotted piloting a helicopter as he arrived at Battersea heliport in London.
At the beginning of October, The Sun revealed that the Minority Report actor was learning to fly a World War Two military plane.
A source from the set told the Sun: “Tom had started to learn to fly a Boeing Stearman biplane earlier this year for a major stunt scene in Mission: Impossible 8.
“It’s obviously a highly skilled task but as usual he has no plans to cut any corners or bring in a stuntman.”
The insider continued: “Filming has only just wrapped on Mission: Impossible 7 but Tom has not given himself a break.
“And trying to film jaw-dropping scenes with an 80-year-old plane is particularly dangerous.”Covid-conscious Tom wore his mask[/caption] Tom fist-bumped the crew as he walked across the airfield[/caption] Tom as Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell in Tony Scott’s 1986 classic Top Gun[/caption]
