Paris finally cleared the air by commenting that she “lives with @deeptomcruise” – which is the TikTok account for the impersonator Miles Fisher. The content creator is known for using deepfake technology to digitally place Tom Cruise’s face over his own.

“As I find myself the unofficial face of this deepfake movement, it’s important to learn and that fascinates me,” Miles said. “It’s state-of-the-art.”
