Tom Brady: I’m sometimes ‘a young immature child’ with my wife

Tom Brady on the cover of Man of the World’s fall issue.

It must be football season because Tom Brady is showing up everywhere. The Pats QB is on the cover of the new issue of Man of the World magazine, and he’s atypically candid in talking about life as Mr. Gisele Bundchen. “I’m a guy, what doesn’t she get on me for?” he says, seeming to lend at least a little credence to a recent Star magazine story that characterized Bundchen as “supercontrolling” of her husband. “That’s just what wives do.” (He may regret uttering that last line.) But then Brady goes on to say that he sometimes feels ignored by his globe-trotting wife. “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.”
