    ugh. . . now scurry back under that rock!

  2. Amelia says:

    I read that title a little too quickly, I think.
    “Tom Cruise – WAIT, WHAT?!! . . . . .Oh, came out of hiding. Bummer.”
    Theory; the hair is covering tox pinpricks or some sort of evidence of tweaking. Dude can’t be a vampire for ever.

  3. ~Z~ says:

    I’m guessing he may have his hair like this to cover surgery scars.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      It’s covering the lightening bolt scar on his forehead because I swear that’s Harry Potter without his glasses.

    • Jen says:

      Agreed! There’s a blind on BG about a star that’s wearing a shaggy mop to cover recent surgery scars and most commenters think it’s about Cruise. It would explain where he’s been the past few months, plus why his face looks somewhat different.

  4. JudyK says:

    Please go back into hibernation, Tommyboy.

  5. paola says:

    Mmmmh. I’m trying to figure out what he has done to his face. Something happened there but I can’t put my finger on it. Right??

  6. birdie says:

    He put on weight.

  7. Finn15 says:

    Looks like he had a bunch of fillers in his cheeks.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      or it is bulemia jaw – the face shape is similar to Tracey Anderson.

  8. Kiddo says:

    Never heard of the Jameson Empire Awards. I looked it up, but still prefer to think of it as in my initial impression: that a bunch of drunks, who read magazines and made an empire out of it (drinking and reading/writing gibberish), cast votes while falling off bar stools and swearing a lot. Also, maybe there is a hawk. 😀

  9. lunchcoma says:

    He can go right back into hiding, as far as I’m concerned. He hasn’t made a good movie in ages, and there are plenty of leading men both in his age group and younger ones who come without the CO$ baggage.

    • LadySlippers says:


      And he looks a lot like my ex. Which I know isn’t Tom’s fault BUT it means I have other reasons to want him to stay ‘hidden’.

  10. Neelyo says:

    A friend of mine always swore that Tom Cruise was going to age like Mickey Rooney. At the time I couldn’t see it but it gets clearer every year.

  11. Aysla says:

    I love when Louis C.K. hosts SNL. Or more plainly, I love Louis C.K. My favorite sketches were the Romantic Speech one (Shhhhhut up), Darth Vader, and Pajama Party (even with some of the off moments and the flubbed line at the end). I realize that these scored as “worst of” on other people’s lists… but I really love nonsensical and offbeat humor. It’s crazy how subjective humor is though, I thought the Black Jeopardy sketch was awful. I think the premise was fine, but the execution ended up being painfully unfunny and boring imo.

    In any case, I need more Louis C.K. stand-up in my life.

    • Froggy says:

      I’ll second the Love for Louis ck!! Saw him in person doing stand up and it was the best show. He makes it worth the money.
      And I did not get that vibe from josh Elliott. I liked him and am bummed he’s leaving gma.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I love Louis too! I have only seen the monologue so far, but I am looking forward to watching more of the skits later.

  12. PunkyMomma says:

    Isn’t Tommy sporting a Beiber? And his cheeks do look a bit chubby. You know, he never pings – straight or gay.

  13. MonicaQ says:

    He’s hanging on to his youth tighter than I hang on to girl scout cookies.

  14. Mouse says:

    No country is responsible for the little brat bieber is today…that’s all on him

  15. SunnySide says:

    As an American (specifically, Californian) living in Canada I am going to have to defend Canada on this one. Bieber didn’t turn into a raging douschebag until he was stateside for awhile. He is responsible for his own actions but I can’t blame Canada for their “No returns on damaged merchandise” mentality. He was a cute innocent kid in Canada, and now that he is bad Canada is getting an unfair amount of blame.

    • Leigh says:

      Couldn’t agree more SunnySide.

      NOW Canada hates him?
      I think we were on that bandwagon well before most Americans were…

      • Clever hand says:

        There simply aren’t enough people in Canada to have made him that successful. He sold millions overseas and stateside. Being a famous singer or actor in Canada is NOT like being famous in the states. For example look at drake who acted and made songs for many years in Canada but didn’t have a dime until he got big in the states.

    • TG says:

      I think you can blame his parents and specifically his mother for raising him with a double dose of the “I am special” syndrome. Canadian celebs who make it big in the US do tend to be gracious people, however. I thinking of the adorable Rachel McAdams, in particular.

    • Godwina says:

      I hate to generalize, but anecdotally I kind of have to agree based on my experience with friends who were perfectly lovely individuals in Montreal, moved to LA for work, and turned into assholes who say things like “Kindness is a bullshit value.”

      Of course logically there must be countless people who live in LA and remain delightful folk. But I have seen that industry/city turn people faster than a zombie bite. And because of this I’m a firm believer in Acquired Situational Narcissism syndrome.

      For all of this, however: LA can keep little d-beebs, thanks.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Could be that “stardom” appeals to certain kind of person, and not that LA turns people into a certain kind person?

  16. JH says:

    Kendra looks like the best version of herself- good for her! She looks great!

  17. MsT_Shady says:

    Also, it looks like a weave to me. A good, very expensive one but a weave nonetheless.

  18. Kyle Randall says:

    Bieber? We didn’t make him. Canada birthed him. The US made him.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I disagree completely. His Canadian parents are the ones who let him get to this point.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Let’s not turn on each other. Lol He’s responsible for his own behavior.

  20. 'p'enny says:

    that hair is looking like a wig, and he defo had face fillers or botox. He is going to fight the ageing the Madonna way.

    I think he needs to spend some time in rehab and escape that scientology- loony bin and get back to what he was good at, popcorn acting. He’s a nice guy just so delusional and vulnerable.

    • FingerBinger says:

      Tom will never “escape” COS. At this point he IS Scientology.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Can you imagine what would happen to his career if he denounced the CoS and left it like a bad husband? I think his career would sky-rocket!

  21. CatJ says:

    Just finished reading “Going Clear” by Lawrence Wright. OMG, it delves into the psycho that LRH was, and what goes on behind the scenes, and, there is some info on TC and John Travolta.
    It is frightening to think that there are people that get sucked into this nonsense and can never be free of it, even if they try to leave.
    “Bare-Faced Messiah is another profile of LRH that the “organization” tried to suppress. They can’t deny the expose but they did try to have it stopped.
    I am disappointed in all of the Hollywood “stars” that are involved in this circus. Are they not allowed or invested in reading about their cult? How do they justify it? I won’t support or watch any actor or performer that I know is involved in this mess. Can’t wait for Leah’s memoirs.
    Tom, I think you are done, and “done”.

  22. Ruffian9 says:

    Ok, I’m sure that I am not imagining this: Dude’s face has actually changed SHAPE. His jaw is different. Hiding, indeed.

  23. TG says:

    I just wonder if Tom values this new award more than his Freedom Medal of Valor award given to him by hiss BFF Miss Cabbage? I can never say “Freedom Medal of Valor” without laughing my head off.

  24. junegorilla says:

    Bad fillers. The CDAN blind item was right on the money. I feel for him. He probably paid a fortune for all of that work. Hopefully Laura Prepon doesn’t keep up on her eye appointments. I am about his age – 47 and I went for a consult for a face-lift. One of the Dr’s suggested fillers instead of any type or surgery so I really look at people’s faces now. The cheek fillers are weirder than the pulled look. They make people look puffy and bloated like they are bulimic or alcoholic or both. His career was in enough trouble this is the LAST thing he needs. I’ll be that Dr’ ended up in a Sea Org workcamp.

    • nico says:

      “Which barely-hanging-onto A-list actor who is an Academy Award winner/nominee is in hiding because of a botched face-lift? ”

      It doesn’t look like a botched job to me. Wouldn’t a face lift have removed the wrinkles around his eyes?

  25. FingerBinger says:

    If Tom has had work done why does he still have lines by his eyes? He looks different because he’s gained some weight.

  26. Snowpea says:

    At this point Tommygirl is looking like a fullblown, loonytoons, mad as a cut snake, few roos loose in the top paddock, stark raving lunatic.

    And that’s being kind.


  27. Trashaddict says:

    Courtney Stodden aka “Porn Iguana”. I think that’s my favorite new nickname! Thanks for making me laugh today, Kaiser.

  28. Triple Cardinal says:

    Botox? Fillers? Tight, shiny skin? Tom is looking more and more like Nicole.

  29. Pumpkin Pie says:

    What do Thetans say about getting plastic surgery?….

  30. Leslie says:

    So, according to Blind Gossip, Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lawrence will be announcing their engagement NEXT WEEK. Does anyone really believe that is going to happen? Haaaaaaaa!!!!
