Tom Cruise shows off scruffy hair as he kisses Lady Gaga backstage at her Vegas show

TOM Cruise looked almost unrecognisable as he kissed Lady Gaga backstage at her Las Vegas show.

The A-list star, 59, is one of the hardest working men in showbiz, but he enjoyed some downtime by watching Gaga perform her stripped back jazz and piano show inside the MGM resort at the weekend.

The singer shared a couple of photographs of them hanging out and wrote: "Thank you for coming to the show last night. I love you my friend."

They gave each other a peck on the cheek, with a beaming Tom wearing a buttoned down shirt and smart jacket.

While Gaga, who contributed the track Hold My Hand to the soundtrack of Tom's Top Gun: Maverick flick,was in a sparkling tux fresh from the stage.

Fan reaction to the snap was mixed with many loving the surprise friendship, while others voiced concern that devout Scientologist Tom might persuade Gaga to join the religion.
