Gisele Bundchen - 'Vanity Fair' May 2009


Gisele Bundchen graces the May 2009 cover of Vanity Fair. Here’s what the 28-year-old Brazilian beauty opened up about:

On being compatible with Tom Brady: “He’s very close to his family. He’s Catholic. His parents have been married 40 years. He’s got a pure heart. That’s all that matters – he’s got the purest heart. I feel grateful because I have a lot of love in my life. I found the person I’m sharing my life with. I have a good man.”

On Tom’s love child with Bridget Moynahan (John Edward Thomas Moynahan): “It was definitely a surprise for both of us. In the beginning you’re living this romantic fantasy; you’re thinking, This can’t be true, it’s so good! And then, Whoops – wake-up call! , [I]t was a very challenging situation. Obviously, in the beginning, it’s not the ideal thing.”

On doubts arising from her and Tom’s relationship: “You question at times – ‘Should I stay here? Maybe you should work this out.’ But when people break up, it’s for a reason. [Dealing with baby John] was a blessing, because otherwise I don’t think I would have known what he was made of, and he wouldn’t have known what I was made of. [I love Tom's integrity and] the way he was a good person through all the times. I was like, You have the heart in a good place! It made me feel more in love with him; it made me realize who he was.”

    Tom’s a good man? Yeah, right. I’d like to hear what Bridget has to say about that.

  • bridget

    Interesting article… shes alot more of a person than she appears from the outside. Thanks Jared!

  • bridget

    response to #1… Bridget can’t say anything but good about Tom… Tom has been a great father to thier little boy, thats what every woman wants for her child.

  • vickifromtexas

    i think tom and gisele seem like a low key and happy couple.

  • lana

    she is so beautiful!!! her and tom= amazing couple!

  • llk

    I wonder why people cannot move on from Bridget already or accept the fact that Tom didn`t leave her knowing that she was pregnant. Move on, finally.
    I loved this interview and she looks incredible!!!

  • Kate

    I don’t think Gisele’s the most beautiful woman in the world, but that’s a beautiful cover.

  • elle

    so what? why do people like to make her seem more interesting than she really is? wow gisele is naked/half naked again what’s new??

  • gerard Vandenberg

    why not making career in BRASIL then?

  • Janelle

    Maybe I’m a hater but I don’t think Gisele is the most beautiful woman in the world. Pretty, yes but there are so many gorgeous women out there. But I do wish her and Tom the best.

  • Heckler

    I’m with you Janelle, I fail to see why she’s so beautiful. She’s certainly not ugly by any means, but….she’s not all people say either. especially when she’s not airbrushed.

  • Epiphany

    She may not be classically beautiful, but she’s fierce on the runway and the way she carries herself is gorgeous! I hope their love lasts.

  • Epiphany

    Oh, and I never thought she looked that great either, until I saw her on the runway!

  • Jennifer

    What bugs me the most about this article is the fact that she calls the baby 100% hers. No, that baby isn’t even 1% hers!! I think its great that she loves that little boy and that she wants to be a great step mother to that child. But saying that he is 100% hers, is taking it a little bit far. She is over-stepping her boundaries here. He has a mother who carried him and gave birth to him. Now I can see her saying that if the baby didnt have a mother in his life but he DOES have a great mother. So her saying this just makes me ..ekk.. not seem so fond of her.

  • mr.d

    #10 and 11. I think you could make that case with about any celebrity you can think of. Gisele is pretty, but not the most beautiful woman in the world. Same with Leo Dicrapio, Robert Pattyson, Gerald Bulter, etc. It’s all hype! They are really not any more attractive than the average person. It’s lightning, make up and marketing.
    On another note, it’s nice to see that Gisele has some substance under her pretty facade. She doesn’t appear to be a vacuous women, so good for Tom for snagging her.

  • do

    gosh, this model is slow and should just stick to modelling.
    I think she’s still in love with leo.

  • what the…

    so wait a minute here. she was with him when BM got pregnant? Oh yeh, he’s a great guy. whatever !~Confused~

  • bridget

    Gisele did not say the boy is 100% hers… she said thats how she FEELS.. which is actually very sweet, considering that many people see thier step-children as “his’ kid, or “her” kid. To love the child as your own is incredibly warm hearted.

  • dabu

    Jennifer @ 03/30/2009 at 2:08 pm

    She said that is how she feels about him. And how lucky is this kid to have three parents that love him and adore him?

    Why would you feel threatened by that? If I had gotten divorced, I would have prayed my ex found someone who loved our kids as though they were her own. Why would I want anything less for them?

  • lisali

    Tom found out briget was pregnant towards the end of Feb 07′.. he and Gisele began dating in Dec 06′.. Moynahan became pregnant around the 3rd week of Nov 06′. Tom & Briget broke up end of Nov.
    Tom was not with Gisele when Briget got pregnant. Gisele should’ve said “we had been dating for 2 months and 9 days when we found out”, cause that would have been accurate.. but oh well.

  • Rachel

    I’m with Jennifer (#14) while I’m not anti Giselle I think what she said was in poor taste. It’s great that she loves her step-son but she should have stopped talking about the situation after the 3rd paragraph or not even spoke about the situation at all.

  • Miapocca

    Dont these fools learn anything at all..the next cover will be why he is an dumb a-rse because he cant think byound his derierre…pictures are worth a thousand words and Tommy boy was no where around that baby till very recently when he got hurt and could not play….he only had time for a baby because he has spare time..otherwise he was running around with mss horse face here,..ahhaha

  • anthony

    She is stunning and seems smart and it’s great she loves that baby like her own since she is his step mother and is with him a lot. I’m sure Brig whoever would be happy about that because it means her son will always be in good hands.

  • Miapocca

    yeah right..when is the divorce??? keep your happiness to yourself foo–ol!!

  • Ruth

    Gisele can talk about what she likes in an interview but I feel that she has overstepped the line in her comments about her stepson. It is obvious that they are desperately trying to improve their PR, hence all the photos of her with the boy etc. On the other hand we hardly ever see little John with his own mother, who knows how to protect him from the media.

    How would Gisele like it if Bridget had given an interview giving her side of the story?

  • mina

    gisele is so sweet, i wish her and tom and the baby nothing but happiness :)

  • cawed

    you hardly see the boy with his own mother, how do you or anyone else for that matter know that he’s also not often with his father just not pictured? it truly amuses and amazes me how b/c we don’t see pictures of him with his son often, he is a horrible father that never ever saw him till recently…yeah i guess b/c you don’t see pictures of my son and his father in the tabloids he’s a horrible father too…get real. Thank god that little boy has 3 people who love him. And a question b/c you don’t happen to see photographs does that mean its not happening?

  • Heresay

    Doesn’t Harper’s Bazaar already have this transgendered, ah, female on its cover? They need new models to put on their covers. It’s the SAME people over and again.

  • Jennifer

    Dabu, you took what I said out of context. I stated my opinion on how she kinda went too far in her “wordage”. I think its great she loves that little boy and that she thinks of him as her own. Thats great because thats not always the case for step parents and step children. Just the way she said, “100% mind” is a little too far taken, especially since he isnt hers. lol

  • Jennifer

    Thanks Rachel :)

  • kris

    god. why are people so hateful and mean these days

    if you’ve read the article all 4 pages which was actually a wonderful
    interview VF never fails to deliver each time.. you’ll know what a wonderful person Gisele seems.
    She loves helping people and the environment.

    She ever praises Leo and says she admires him. She talks about what a wonderful boy her step son is .. NOT that it’s hers 100% but she feels like it .. Showing that she’s treating that little boy that she didn’t deliver the same amount of love as the mother.

    She’s a happily married woman who’s absolutely beautiful.. I don’t think there’s such thing as ‘most beautiful woman on this earth’ because beauty is subjective to everyone.. but you can’t deny she is stunning

    I liked this quote from her a lot.

    “That’s why I think it’s important to focus on what matters. Everyone has talents—you’ve just got to find them—and everyone has flaws. Wishing to be something you’re not is the biggest recipe for a sad life. All of us are special. Embrace all that you are! Treat yourself as the special being you are. “

  • agi

    congrats on gisele…i hope her all tha hapiness in the world

  • adriana

    she is gorgeous beyond words!

  • bobbi

    Initially I too was taken aback by her comment on baby John, but yanno, how lucky is this little boy that he has three loving parental figures in his life.

    What’s the alternative? That she resents the kid? Partially loves him?

    I would tend to think that even Bridget…after some initial selfish feelings, would have to agree that her son is very fortunate to have such a loving step-mom.

  • lakers fan in boston

    that body of hers is so sexy!
    no1 else has a sexy body like that,(sexy curvy body is kelly brook)
    i found it kinda weird how she was talking about toms kid, im pretty sure his ex-wife is gonna be annoyed at what she said, pretty sure a lot of ppl would…
    but whatever, love from LFIB! =D


    #16 you are an idiot! Why would she still be in love with Leo?! Tom Brady is so much hotter and seems so much nicer. I am happy for them. They are both beautiful people…inside and out it seems.

  • lady

    Some people here either are foreign or did not do well in english at school – I feel as though all of us did not read the same article – here is exactly what Gisele said:

    “I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child. I feel it is, 100 percent,” Gisele says. “I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that’s important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he’s my son, from the first day.”

  • kate

    Tom is a Catholic – yeah right! Practicing Catholics don’t have sex outside of marriage, don’t use birth control and they sure as hell don’t have babies outside of marriage. He may be Catholic by word of mouth – but seriously, when was the last time he followed the guidelines of the Church> He’s not a Catholic – he’s a hypocrite.

  • lil d20

    i don’t think giselle is pretty at all,she looks like a giraffe, but very interesting interview i must say.

  • liz86000

    What a…! You BET dear little Tom should have man up and tried again with the mother of his child instead of leaving her pregnant and alone!!! He didn’t even try! He stayed with his model, and she of course was completely ok with him not leaving her! She’s kind of a homewrecker to me, because she stopped a family to reunite.
    B*tch. But he is an *ss, thinking just about himself and not his child’s happiness… heart of gold my foot!

  • liz86000

    AND she should NOT try to TAKE the kid’s mother’s place!! How dare she say that “she feels he is her own kid”! WTH??? How disrespectful is that! She already took that poor woman her man, now she wants the kid too??!

  • his mother not

    big nose ugly bioch

  • juu

    heresay, are you crazy..gisele is GORGEOUS! did u even read what seh said? it was interesting and proved she has more substance than people like you.

  • lily

    Ham, I’m catholic and like 90% of Brazil is catholic and I can guarantee you Kate, that not all of them follow these rules- no sex outside marriage, no birth control, etc- and thank god for that! If no one used birth control there would be a hell lot more of babies outside of marriage!

  • nyc

    Welcome to the world of step-parenting, Bundchen! You are an idiot.

  • whatabitch

    So sick of this piece of trash. She poses naked in these pics and talks about a child that is not hers in this way. She got the loser deadbeat Brady why did this W*hore have to open her hole? I ‘ll tell you why she’s trying to cause trouble, she may be hard to understand but she knows exactly what she’s doing.

  • barron797

    I can say that Gisele has the most beautiful/perfect body in the world but her face? …not so much.

    Even Nicole Miller said Gisele wasn’t anything special but it was the way she carried herself on the cat walk which made her such a spectacular model. I think people take it too far when they say she’s sooooo beautiful. Her face doesn’t appeal to me at all but her body is definitely enviable.

  • piper, with a low

    It seems that Bullmastiff Bennetts is at it again.
    I have no problem with a stepparent feeling maternal towards their stepchild, but her statement seems a bit out of order. I mean, the baby doesn’t even have Tom’s last name, a deliberate action taken by Bridget, and it’s almost like Gisele thinks that the baby is John Edward Thomas Moynahan Bundchen.
    Again, it’s great that Gisele seems to have love for the boy, but she’s coming across as presumptuous. And there’s also a danger of interpreting her love for this little boy as only contingent if she can control how she feels about the baby and his mother on any given day.
    But then again, maybe Bennetts is, yet again, trying to start a catfight between higher profile women, so she can make her rounds on the entertainment shows.

  • Megan fox rocks

    Gisele is stunning woman . God

  • weirdo

    Gislut knows exactly what she said and what she’s doing. Connect the dots bimbo – JACK is a sweet kid because of how he’s being raised and for that this evil step Ho can thank the childs mom for both having him when deadbeat hubby wanted nothing to do with the kid and for raising him for the first part of his life by his mom when his Father was too busy walking your dog. Giving the actual mom credit and stating the situation was difficult for all but worked through it and all are lucky to have Jack, would have been the class act thing to do but no Gislut while posing with no clothes on had to use this to start this crap up again. She has an ax to grind but it’s going to backfire because no one is buying her Holy Step Mom rountine and the paps love to bother them both.
