Tom’s Se­cret Plas­tic Surgery Trip

EX­CLU­SIVE A nip-tuck for Tom Cruise! The 53-yearold ac­tor trav­els to Switzer­land to see a world-renowned plas­tic sur­geon

In Touch (USA) - - News flash -

Tom Cruise’s days as a Hol­ly­wood heart­throb are slip­ping fur­ther be­hind him — and he’s de­ter­mined to put a stop to it. “He is get­ting older, and it’s start­ing to show,” says an in­sider close to the ac­tor. “He’s no­ticed that his jaw­line and brows are start­ing to droop. It’s been mak­ing him un­happy for a long time.”

The so­lu­tion? Plas­tic surgery. The de­ci­sion was made while Tom, 53, was in Eng­land film­ing his up­com­ing movie The Mummy. “He was some­what dis­ap­pointed in how he looked af­ter he saw him­self on-screen,” the in­sider tells In Touch. “The light­ing and makeup peo­ple tried to work around it, but there was only so much they could do.” In the end, the ac­tor jet­ted off to Swit- zer­land to meet with a “very prom­i­nent” sur­geon. “Tom wants a face-lift. Bo­tox and fillers won’t cut it. A facelift is the only way to fi x what he doesn’t like.”

There’s another rea­son Tom is des­per­ate to turn back time. He is en­thralled with his younger co-star Annabelle Wal­lis. “He un­ex­pect­edly fell for her,” a source says of the stun­ning 31-year-old blonde who dated Chris Martin af­ter he split from Gwyneth Pal­trow. “They had im­me­di­ate chem­istry on and off the set. It started out as just a crush, but Tom re­ally wants to pur­sue her se­ri­ously.”

He might stand a bet­ter chance of that if he can once again look like he did dur­ing his glory days. “This is very im­por­tant to Tom,” says the in­sider, adding that the ac­tor sought out the Switzer­land sur­geon be­cause of his rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing “the best in Europe” and also for hav­ing a sub­tle ap­proach. While Tom wants to have the work done, “He doesn’t want it to be no­tice­able. He just wants to look like a slightly younger ver­sion of him­self.” ◼

UN­DER THE KNIFE Tom, who’s smit­ten with his Mummy co-star Annabelle Wal­lis (be­low), “wants to look more youth­ful,” says an in­sider.
