Cuba Gooding Jr. talked about Tom Cruise and whether he believed he had work done to his face when he was younger while interviewing with Andy Cohen on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Thursday.
Us Weekly reports that the “People vs. O.J. Simpson” actor noticed red dots on Cruise’s face when he once made a surprise visit to his home. Gooding once starred with 53-year-old Cruise in “Jerry Maguire” back in 1996.
When Cohen asked Cuba Gooding Jr. if he thinks Tom Cruise has had plastic surgery done to his face, the actor said “Absolutely, yes!”
Gooding recalled a time he showed up unexpectedly to Cruise’s home to see him. Evidently, the “Mission: Impossible” actor wasn’t ready for any visitors.
“I don’t know what he’s had done, but I surprised him at his house one day, and he had all these little red dots over his face,” Gooding told Cohen in a game they were playing called Spill the Tea. “And I said, ‘You all right?’ and he said, ‘I didn’t know you were coming. And I was like, ‘I can see why!'”

This is something Tom Cruise probably really appreciates his former co-star letting out of the bag. It’s not as if there’s any secret that A-list Hollywood stars get plastic surgery done to their faces. It’s part of the business, after all. Hardly a shock.
