This sparked a lively debate and a number of theories about Tom's badonk.
The leading (and least fun) theory is that the butt belongs to a stuntman wearing butt padding for protection. But why does the stuntman have a butt that would put a Kardashian to shame? Is it necessary?
is it a stunt scene? stunt actors wear fake butts for padding (wldt put it past Cruise all the time but this one looks hilariously outsized)— Anthony Oliveira (@meakoopa) August 20, 2017
Others argue it was just a weird angle and could very well have been Tommy Boy's ass all along.
Thanks a weird angle. Here's another where it's normal pic.twitter.com/E9QaPoTaZR— Trisha M (@trismac) August 21, 2017
Others think this butt-augmenting conspiracy runs deep and proof was found in Toby Macguire's Spiderman. Are Hollywood men just concerned about having flat butts?

Nah, probably just butt-padding to protect the stuntman's hinder. Nearly all of Twitter agreed that the butt was too juicy though.
but is it TOO juicy?— swizz keats (@iluvbutts247) August 20, 2017
What do you think ONTD? Is it a stunt-butt, CGI, or does reaching clear give you dat ass?
