Tom Brady admits that he has a rather immature side when it comes to getting his wife Gisele Bundchen’s attention.

The American football star has two children with the Brazilian supermodel however the parents can’t help but act like youngsters themselves at times.

“I’m a guy, what doesn’t she get on me for? That’s just what wives do, he told Man of the World magazine’s Fall issue. “I like attention from her, so when I’m not getting it I let her know in immature ways, like a young, immature child would. You throw fits and you pout and you whine until you get what you want.”


Although the sportsman’s actions used to do that trick when he craved the star’s attention, now his tactics are less successful.

“She’s on to me, she knows all of my tricks. So now I have to learn new tricks, he continued.

Tom is known as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all NFL history, and is profiled by Geoffrey Grey styled by Deborah Watson and photographed by Randall Mesdon in the publication’s latest instalment. Speaking candidly, he reflects on family, leadership and finding peace on the field.


“My wife speaks five languages. I always tell her I speak two: English and football,Tom – who sleeps with his playbook next to his bed - joked.

“In a weird way, even though it’s hyper-intense, I really am my true self out there” he added. “I can be who I am without having to be polite or having to be on. If someone messes up, I can let them know.

“If I want to be excited, I can be excited. If I want to be pissed, I can be pissed. I’m more myself in front of 70,000 people.”
