Wrinkle free at 49? It's not a Mission: Impossible for fresh-faced Tom Cruise, who looks younger than ever

Wrinkle free at 49: Tom Cruise looked more youthful than ever as he headed out in New York yesterday

He's rapidly approaching his 50th birthday, but Tom Cruise is looking younger than ever.

The actor, who first shot to fame at the tender age of 19, showed off his fresh-faced complexion as he headed out and about in New York yesterday promoting his new movie Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

With no wrinkles visible on his smooth forehead, Cruise seems to have the appearance of a man significantly younger - with only the slight increase in laughter lines around his eyes giving away his age.

No difference: Surprisingly an older Tom looked as fresh-faced as he did 11 years ago (right)

Compared to a photograph of the Hollywood actor back in 2000, as well as his skin appearing smoother 11 years later, his teeth look straighter and whiter.

It was claimed last year that Cruise had started using wife Katie Holmes' skincare products in a bid to keep his complexion looking as young as possible.

A source said: 'He’s freaking out over the new lines on his face, the grey hairs on his head and on his face, when he shaves. He has started applying Katie’s high-priced facial creams, cleansers and even her make-up and he loves the results.

'He even slathers on Katie’s foundation before public events and lightly applies her mascara to make his eyelashes look fuller.'

Cruise's appearance is unlikely to please One Shot fans, however, who have already complained that the actor is not rugged enough to play Jack Reacher in the big-screen adaptation of Lee Child's novel.

There have also been complaints that he is not tall enough to take on the role of the former military policeman, described as 6ft 5in in the books.

Cruise has been working hard in recent weeks promoting his latest offering - the fourth installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise.

But the actor still found time to enjoy a romantic dinner out with wife Katie Holmes following the premiere of the film in New York last night.

The pair headed to The Meatball Shop Restaurant to grab some food after the event, with Cruise looking dapper in his navy suit while Katie radiated glamour in her matching navy sheer polkadot dress.
