Tom Brady poses for the September issue of Details and tells us why life is not exactly how he envisioned it, why modeling is harder than football, and why he and wife Gisele Bundchen are just right for each other.
On modeling being harder than playing football: “When I’m out on the football field, I have so much confidence in what I’m doing. With [the modeling], I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m at the whim of the photographer and the crew.”
On life and having a child out of wedlock: “That’s not how you envisioned your life, that’s not how you envisioned having children, but it happens. Life is not living in the suburbs with a white picket fence. That’s not life. Somehow our American culture has made it out that that’s what life needs to be—and that if it’s not that, it’s all screwed up. It’s not. You go through life and you try the best you can.”
On being set-up on a blind date with Gisele: “This friend told me he knew a girl version of me.” Gisele chimes in, “And he said to me he’d found a boy version of me.” [Source: Details; Photos: Steven Klein]
