Tom Brady Wife: Top 10 Interesting Facts of Gisele Bundchen
Gisele Caroline Bundchen is the long time love interest and wife of NFL star player, Tom Brady. She is also a Brazilian super model, an activist, and a businesswoman. Since the early 2000s, Gisele has been on the list of the highest paid models in the world and continues to dominate the industry to date.
Bundchen has been the topic of interest for several fans due to her connection with Tom Brady. Thus, our team here at Sportszion has compiled a list of the top ten most interesting facts about the model.
#1. Gisele Bundchen Was Offered a Role in the Movie, Charlie’s Angels (2000)
The Charlie’s Angels was one of the biggest movies in the 2000s. The fun and thrilling action packed movie following three trained female assassins took the market by storm. Director McG offered the role of Alex Munday, one of the angels to Gisele, giving her the opportunity to work alongside big names like Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore. But she respectfully declined the offer.
#2. Gisele Bundchen Stumbled Upon Her Modeling Career By Chance
Experiencing childhood in Horizontina, an unassuming community in the wide open of Rio Grande do Sul, Bundchen was a straight-A student with the desire of turning into an expert volleyball player. Truth be told, her abilities on the court were so solid, she may have really gotten one—had somebody not coordinated a displaying course for nearby young ladies. Bundchen just joined on the grounds that the free excursion to Sao Paulo guaranteed toward the finish of the class was so engaging.
She was 13 and had never been to a major city, not to mention Sao Paulo, which was a 25-hour transport ride away. It was there, during her first dinner at the cheap food chain, that a displaying specialist chose her from the 55 other formally dressed young ladies. At that point, “I’d never seen fashion magazines,” Bundchen said.
#3. Gisele Bundchen And Tom Brady’s Relationship May Have Not Happened
It was December 2005, at a New England Patriots game, and the supermodel had just ended her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio when she was shown a photo of the Patriots quarterback, who was dating Bridget Moynahan at the time. Bündchen’s initial take was published in the Boston Herald: “Tom Brady, definitely not too shabby. He’s cute, but if he has a girlfriend, he’s gay to me. There are too many men in the world to go after a man who has a woman. Life is too short.”
On a Boston radio program, Brady heard her review. “Oh, jeez, that’s a little harsh,” Brady said. At the end of 2006, Bündchen met a newly single Brady through a mutual friend. “I knew right away—the first time I saw him,” Bündchen has said. “[He] smiled and I was like, that is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!” Let’s just say it was love at first (actual) sight.
#4. Gisele Bundchen‘s astrological sign is Cancer
“I’m a Cancer,” she tells Vogue of her astrological sign and what it means to her, and how it keeps her grounded in the fashion industry. “The little crab. Loves the home, her sanctuary, all the cozy things. So I was a fish out of water in fashion. I was always like, Let me go to the job and go home.”
#5. Gisele Bundchen Created Her Natural Skin-Care Line, Sejaa, For Helping Teenage Girls With Low Self Esteem and Anxiety
“When I was a teenager, I had pimples—oh, God, every time someone looked at my face I thought they were looking at my pimples. I put mud on my face to dry them out, and it worked,” Bündchen told Vogue in 2010. “I wanted to teach girls to love themselves and take care of their bodies. What is the first thing you see every morning? Your face! What do you put every day on your face? Cream! I have made the simplest, purest cream—an every day cream—but it comes with an affirmation.” Lesson learned.
#6. Gisele Bundchen has Dedicated Every Single Day Of Her Life To Doing Yoga Since She Was Twenty
Bündchen is committed to a holistic lifestyle, which she embraces in numerous ways, including through meditation. She tells Vogue’s Rob Haskell that started practicing daily meditation in her 20s and has even helped implement a meditation program at her children’s school. She also practices yoga and maintains a famously strict diet.
#7. Gisele Bundchen Has A Twin Sister
Nature was generous with the Bündchen family. Gisele Bündchen has a twin sister, Patricia. They are not identical, but she is also gorgeous, and both have a great relationship. The female presence was dominant in the house since her parents had six children, all girls. The Brazilian beauty likes to have people she trusts working with her, and she hired four of her sisters. The one who doesn’t work with the model is a judge in Brazil.
#8. Gisele Bundchen May Have Become A Professional Volleyball Player
Gisele Bündchen made history as the highest-paid model in the world. But her childhood dream was to become a volleyball player. The model used to play in the school team, and since she is a perfectionist, there is no doubt Bündchen would go far.
However, things changed after she signed up for a modeling course when she was 13. She wanted to do it because at the end of the course the group would go to Sao Paulo. There, she was discovered in a shopping mall while eating at McDonald’s.
#9. Anxiety Crisis Had Taken A Massive Hold On The Super Model
The model was on the top of her career in her 20s, and she was dating Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the most desirable men in Hollywood back then. Looking from the outside, she had a perfect life, but the reality was different.
In her book “Lessons: My Path To A Meaningful Life”, the model revealed that she used to have many anxiety crises, and one day she felt like jumping from her building to end that feeling. She looked for a doctor, started meditation, and did yoga every day. That changed her life, and she became more spiritual and started to have a healthy lifestyle.
#10. The United Nations Officially Recognised Gisele Bundchen
Gisele acted as a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme in 2009. In 2011 she was honored by Harvard Medical School with a Global Environmental Citizen Award. She also supported environmental projects such as Seal the Deal, TckTckTck, and Billion Tree. And for Germany’s April 2019 “sustainability” issue, she was a natural choice for the cover.
