Could be for a movie role.— New Yawka (@GerardH17) October 11, 2021
Others thought the change in his looks was the result of health issues…
What the hell is going on with his face?? Is he having an allergic reaction??— Virginia Olivieri (@simplyfabbyv) October 11, 2021
…or a botched surgery and side effects from medications.
My guess is he may be taking prednisone for an accident or illness which can cause fat deposits on the side of your skull, giving you a round-faced appearance known as moon face. Moon face can also be a symptom of other health conditions like Cushing Syndrome or Hypothyroidism.— GSG the Original (@GSGtheOriginal) October 12, 2021
Yikes, too much face fillers TC! Take a lesson from Brad Pitt...age gracefully, however Brad was always hotter and still is!🎃🍁🍂— Gloria Smith (@Carrollcomom) October 12, 2021

Yes it's him. His son Connor is sitting next to him.— Gustav Renfro (@GustavRenfro) October 12, 2021
Despite a flood of bitter comments many users said that the actor still looks good.
He looks great to me, as usual. He's also a fantastic person. He stopped to say hello, while spending time with his son. What a guy. I just love him!!!— Candice Bridges (@CandiceBridges9) October 11, 2021
