Gisele Bundchen Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' April 2009

Following her ultra-secret wedding to pro-footballer Tom Brady, Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen (in Louis Vuitton) graces the April 2009 cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Check out what she had to say:

On how she’s ready to start a family: “I want to have a big family. My parents have been together for 36 years, and that is what I want.” She goes on to say: “I love kids. It’s amazing that I have the opportunity to hang out with my stepson all the time.”

On what she loves most about her new husband: “Tom is a good guy. He has a very pure heart. He’s very naive, almost like a child. That is my favorite quality about him. One thing that I thought was so amazing when I first met him is that he is innocent. He sees the world with colored glasses.”

On life five to six years ago: “I was drinking a lot of red wine, smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes a day, and eating cheeseburgers all day. I was treating my body, which is my temple and my best friend, as my worst enemy. I was almost punishing myself. I was so tired. I was working so much, and I was numb.”

    She is beautiful

    Beautiful German woman! Brazil is a multi-cultural, multi-racial, multi-ethnic country with the common language of Portuguese. In many ways exactly like the United States. If Gisele were born in America she would be a German-American. Brazil has much more in common with American and is nothing like the poverty-stricken , uneducated countries surrounding it. Except for Argentina whose inhabitants are mostly European anyways. Americans should come to Brazil to see how marvelous and unique it is.

    great cover and I agree with you Anthony. she makes Tom sound like a child rather than a man, that explains a lot to be honest, why she’s in control and his just there.

    On what she loves most about her new husband:
    “Tom is a good guy. He has a very pure heart. He’s very naive, almost like a child. That is my favorite quality about him. One thing that I thought was so amazing when I first met him is that he is innocent. He sees the world with colored glasses.”
    ‘Naive’; ‘almost like a child.’ WTF!
    Now i ask you, is this the way to perceive your EQUAL PARTNER?
    isnt this the perfect set-up for a mother-son relationship?.
    If a woman feels so much more mature than her spouse, how is theirs a relationship between equals?
    I guess she should have had a talk with her parents for their secret to staying together for 36 years. i guarantee its not because one spouse felt that the other was ‘naive’ and ‘childlike’?

  • Abby

    Wow….I see a divorce coming after those comments about Tom.

  • BoPo

    #4, #5 , #6 – what is the matter with you people that make you so opinionated?? If you hate her so much why come on the site? Good Lord give it a rest already!

  • sara

    its sweet what she said about Tom . She loves him madly. My boyfriend it the same

  • dogma

    she looks like a skinny version of tom…too manly, there’s nothing pretty about her

  • yuck

    this girl is annoying. innocent husband my bum!! innocent men don’t abandon their pregnant girlfriends.
    & we in europe know what kind of “german” gisele is and no one is proud of her (and many brazilian/argentinian) roots. where do you think all of the nazis who got away went to?

    Oh poor BoPo. I dont hate Gisele. In fact, i quite like her – given that i know nothing about her or any other celeb (rolling eyes).
    But you must admit, what she said about her husband is very unfortunate. I would hazard a guess that when Tom saw that, he was not amused.
    Put yourself in his shoes. And if your spouse told the world that you were naive and just like a child, would you be happy about that? I know she meant no harm and was in fact, trying to show how much she loves and adores her husband. But with that revelation about how she perceives him, it just doesnt augur well for their future together.

  • jenni

    A bit insulting to say that your favorite attribute of your husband is his naivete?

  • wateva

    sara @ 03/11/2009 at 1:06 pm its sweet what she said about Tom . She loves him madly. My boyfriend it the same

    Btich, how many times must i tell you! that picture of Brad that you have on your screensaver is not your boyfriend!! Now go take your meds. Fcuking reeeeeetard.

  • bobbi

    I love Gisele but why oh why would she comment about Tom being like a child. He’s an NFL quarterback. I can only imagine the ribbing he’ll have to take after other players get wind of this.

  • bridget

    Duh… Gisele always talks like that. I think what shes trying to say is that he always sees the good in people,hes really a tender guy under the whole football guy exterior… If you’ve ever read other interviews with Gisele, she tends to describe things in very broad terms.
    Being that Tom is married to her, and has been with her for over 2 years, he’ll prolly laugh if he reads the interview, its simply very Gisele.

  • Maryc

    Gisele called her husband Naive not STUPID! Anyone want to bet how long it will take before we find out that the comment was made out of context? In some respects Tom was naive to think Bridget was innocent in setting up getting pregnant. And for all those peple who are going to defend this (1) She went with the guy for 3 years and nothing happened – WHY because she was on birth control and into her career (small as it is). (2) She gave an interview in a magazine and TOLD the interviewer that she planned getting pregnant! OMG what a surprise! I think Gisele AND Tom knew exactly what or rather WHO she was referring to when she said he was Naive. Gisele has said in other interviews that he is a geniunely kind and good person. That interview came right after the one Bridget did with all her “Oh I never expected to pregnant and alone”. I bet you didn’t missy. So here is the bottom line- no matter what any of us think – Tom loves Gisele and Gisele loves Tom. Except for Tom’s son, Bridget is so out of the equation and I bet she likes it that way.End of story!

  • Lara J

    Go Gisele, Go! Amazing pictures!

  • steffi

    All atheletes are ´very naive. My boyfriend is a ice-hockey player so I know what Gisele mean

  • wateva

    Maryc @ 03/11/2009 at 1:49 pm
    ……”the comment was made out of context…….”
    Are you stooopid? First of all, how does one make one’s own utterances “out of context”? LOL
    And that just one example of the stupidity of your long-azz post.

  • sara

    wateva you are a bitch. My boyfriens playes soccer and like steffi say all players are very naive.
    She said nothing bad about Tom. She try to say how much she loves him

  • athena

    She wouldn’t be my choice for the cover, although it’s great to see models do the covers of fashion magazines again.

  • http://Giselebundchen debbie

    steffi and sara are groupies from who are just making the whole idea of Tom being naive worse.

  • sara

    wateva@ I HAVE A BOYFRIEND. She said not bad about Tom. He and other athletes see the world in other eyes. That said she. And Tom said about himself he is naive.

  • wateva

    sara @ 03/11/2009 at 2:30 pm wateva@

    Oh Oh. What’s happening sara-the-reeeetard? Seems like youre losing your grasp of the language, huh bet/dj/fcuking stalker of HW royal couple.
    Repeat after me:

  • Maryc

    wateva- Do you even know what out of context means? It means you dumb ass, to read the WHOLE article because only portions were taken out of it. And as for terrorizing Sara. I have NEVER seen a more viscious, insulting response to anyone on any site. Get a life you Crazy Psycho Bitch!!! So much anger, so much hate. Pathetic. I would love to wash your filthy mouth out with soap. So why don’t you respond back so we can all laugh at you?

  • Queenie

    WTF, beeotch needs to stop the bulls#it. He wasn’t that innocent when he got his ex preggers and left her for Gisselle. I guess if you have the kind of money the boy has he would see life with a pair of pink color glasses…what an a#ss.

  • wateva

    Maryc……..we have already established that youre an idjit. LOL
    Angry? why should i be angry on a blog? its not even Brad and Angie’s thread. LOL
    Im btich-slapping sara-the-moron, thats true. What, you want some of that?
    I know youre not sara cos she’s a little bit stooopider than you. But just as sara is obsessed with stalking brad and angie, you seem to be obsessed with giselle and her husband and his ex.
    people like you and sara who stalk celebs and talk trash about their life and their family like you know anything about them are the scum of the earth. Decent people dont go around casting aspersions on people with a public profile, just because they are easy targets. You make me sick.
    But its fun giving y’all a taste of your own medicine. And a slap-a-troll btich slap every now and then.

  • Naima

    I understand completely what she means, you guys are taking her words too seriously, I think their relationship is secure enough and they understand each other well.

    That being said, I love Gisele, she’s smart, down to earth and pragmatic, her business sense is on point and she is definitely the best model out there.

    Love her and love the fact that she found a real man who can can appreciate the powerhouse that she is unlike Di Caprio who insists on being with that cold and dumb little girl.

  • mediterranean

    The things she said about her husband, her stepson are so beautiful just like herself.

    To completely blame Tom for the pregnancy of his ex-girlfriend is so nonsense. The ex has much more responsible for this.

  • sky

    way to go G, u just pulled a robin givens when talking about your husband. You just made your husband seem like a childish, professional sissy instead of a grown a*s man. Thanks for clearing this us for the reset of us, now we understand his childish behaviour towards his ex-girlfriend and their child. Now I know who wears the pants an it ain’t tom brady.

  • she is annoying

    I dont’ know, but she’s really annoying, every time i see her on tv saying anything at all. They all sound so stupid. After reading her latest comment, I guess you all see what I mean. Her husband’s Naivete is the most attractive attribute? She ate cheeseburger all the time, WTF?!

    Besides, innocent husband don’t abandon their pregnant girlfriends.

    lastly, after the cosmetic surgery she’s had (, she still has a horse face. She is just sad.

  • kaylee

    she was eating cheeseburgers all day?! haha yea okayy

  • kate

    I agree with Anthony about Brasil. I am in college with several Brasilian friends and they have educated my so much about Brasil. Brasil does seem to have more in common with the US than they have with other South American/Central Amercian countries.

    This is not meant to be insulting to my friends, but they do tend to look down on their South American neighbors (somewhat understandably, as Brasil is by far the geographically largest, most populated, and economically viable country in Latin America). I asked their opinion about Hugo Chavez and they said “idiot, brutish, oil pimp”. They also seriously question the intelligence of people from other South American countries.

    For those of you who will criticize my comments and compare Mexico, please remember that Mexico is located in North America.

    Just my two cents.

  • Davis

    She looks like a man. I don’t know why people think she is pretty.

  • Myguy

    Wateva– Take your medication!! I just read through this thread, because I am a BIG fan of G&T and see you have trashed about 5 people. You spend a lot of time telling off people on a thread. How often do you come back to this? Maybe you should invest a little time and learn how to spell. It’s surprising you can not spell “Idiot”. Get a grip girl or whatever you are.

  • Abbie

    Cool article and wonderful pics of Gisele!!!!

    She must be so much happier now that she has found the right man! I can’t wait to see them having a big family!

  • karinefrench

    #4 I couldn’t say better !!

  • catik

    she looks beautiful in this cover

  • mediterranean

    This is so clear that in this world there are beautiful survives by vomiting their hatred by using the names of the people whom they don’t know anything about.

    First and still Angie and Brad, now Gisele and Tom. The problem is that they are happy and you are stil not!

  • lakers fan in boston

    love u gisele, u can be so funny =D

    For people who keep bringing this nazi subject, a lot of germans came to Brazil in the 19th century, so nazism hadn’t happened yet.

  • Bianca



    B R A Z I L !

  • Juliana

    I’m brazilian and i love her!

  • camerondiaztwin

    lakers fan, I hate to have the break the newsto you, but there really ARE women like that out there: who can eat like cows and still be thin.

    My mother is one. I, sadly, am not – I gotta watch what I eat :(

  • hohum

    there’s just something about me that annoyed her. i don’t know whether it’s because she is in the middle of a situation that bare similarities to mine, she playing the role of my ex’s girlfriend, or if it’s just because i’ve never liked her. but i do have to say that she at least encourages tom to spend time with his son and treats him as her own, rather than try and play his mother and make “their own family” – if that makes sense. and you know what, being naive is not stupid. and you know, you don’t know what conversations they have. he could be very aware on some things, but very unaware on others. he’s from america, she’s from brazili… they could learn/teach each other plenty. man, i can’t believe i just complimented her! Haha! And no, I didn’t get pregnant on purpose. It took two people, which I’m sure it took with Tom and Bridget. I think the he said/she said should just stop because I’m sure Bridget is just as over it as the Bradys.
