Gisele Bündchen Shares Details About Her First Date with Tom Brady


-Welcome back to the show. -Oh, thank you.
How are the kids? -Oh, they’re just beautiful
and awesome. Started kindergarten,
and I didn’t cry, which is good. -Oh, that’s good.
That can happen. -I did actually cry,
but that’s okay. I won’t tell anybody.
-Shh, shh, shh. -Won’t tell.
Thank you for playing the game. You said you’re not —
You don’t really — -I normally don’t play
those kinds of games. You know, we are usually a bit
more intense in our family. Like, I mean, sometimes
we do that one with the phone like that,
but I never played that one. That was the first time, so… And I got stuck with that thing
twice in my hand, so I don’t know
if I was too good. -No, you were fantastic.
[ Laughter ] You said you play
more, like, physical — Yeah. -Your husband is very
competitive, obviously. -Yeah.
And you know what I found? You know, I come
from a family of five. I have five sisters. And we usually —
we used to play volleyball, so it was like a team sport. We all played in the same team. But Tom’s family
is a little different. You know, his sisters are —
he’s the baby, he’s got three older sisters,
and they’re pretty hard-core. I mean, when they play,
it’s like — -Really?
They go for it? -You know that game that you —
Dodge ball, is it? Where you go, and you like
throw really hard at a person, And then they die —
they’re out of the — [ Laughter ] -Well, yeah, if it’s Tom Brady
throwing a dodge ball, yeah. That might happen. -But you would be impressed
because there is Maya, there is Julie, and, I mean,
they’re pretty strong. They were softball players.
They’re intense. -The whole Brady family
can throw? -Oh, yeah.
-Of course. -Oh, yeah.
-I would never play that. I’d be like,
“Hey, let’s play Catchphrase.” [ Laughter ] -Yeah, you might want
to do that, if you play. If they invite you
to play this game with the ball, make sure that
you’re ready for it. -You brought a quick second
of you playing dodge ball against Tom Brady.
[ Laughter ] This is his sister versus Tom.
Look at this. -Oh! -Oh, my God.
What?! [ Cheers and applause ] -It’s a little more intense
then what we just played, but it’s pretty fun.
-Yeah. -It’s pretty fun. -Where did you and Tom meet? -We actually had a blind date. Because it was a funny story,
because for some reason, everybody thought they needed
to, like, find me a boyfriend, so it actually
was my third blind date. And the other two were dinners, which I was stuck there
for an hour and a half, like, thinking,
“When can I get out? Where’s my food?”
-Too long. -The third blind date
was actually Tom. And I was like,
“This is — That’s it. I’m not going
on any more blind dates.” And I figured,
“Let’s meet for a drink,” because, you know, a drink can
take three minutes or two hours. You know what I mean?
-Exactly. -You can go drink,
or you can go sipping. [ Laughter ] But, you know,
when I saw those kind eyes, I literally fell in love,
like, right away. I was like, “What?”
I mean, he was just so — You know how sweet he is. -Oh, I’m in love with him, too,
yeah. [ Laughter ] You can’t help it.
Can’t help it. -I understand.
I understand. -Now, tell me about this book,
“Lessons.” I want to —
Why did you write this? -So, you know,
I believe in signs, and I had,
for the last three, four years, different friends
would come to me and share stories
about people in their life that was struggling with anxiety
or different things. I felt like,
“Well, that’s very similar with something
I’ve experienced in my life.” And I felt, “Well, if I can
share from a real honest and open pl–” You know, make them feel
like they were not alone. So I started writing letters to people
that I really didn’t know. Just friends of friends, or… And the feedback I had is that
it really helped them. You know,
somebody was being bullied, they started an anti-bullying
program in school. A person was suffering
from anxiety, and some of the tips
I gave her helped her. So, I felt like,
“Well, there’s just only a few people
that can get to me.” So I figure, if I do an open
letter to talk about things, challenges I faced,
and things that have helped me, maybe I’ll be able
to help more people. So that was the intention. -It’s great,
because I’ve known you for a long time, but I — From just looking at you,
you go, things are pretty great. I mean…
[ Laughter ] -You know, that was actually
one of the big things, you know, I think I was
very judgmental of myself for feeling
the things I was feeling, because I felt like my life — I have a great family,
I have a great relationship, I have a great job. Like, why should
I feel this way? I didn’t want to tell anyone
because I was very, just, you know,
just feeling like I’m not allowed
to have a problem, you know? And then, I kind of held it in.
-Wow. -And then, finally, you know,
the bubble burst, and then you have
to deal with things. And, you know,
it’s been wonderful, but I had
so many different lessons. It’s not just that.
It’s the quality of your life depends on the quality
of your relationships. You know, that’s huge.
-Yeah. [ Applause ]
-Because, you know, there are so many different — Be mindful with your words.
You know they’re very powerful. We are creating
our own reality by our thoughts, by what we are feeling. We are putting — Where your attention goes
is what grows, so… -One thing in here that I like,
to help you with anxiety, you said breathing is a very
important key, which… -Yeah.
No, breathing I think is — -…I think I’m pretty good at,
but I… -Have you been meditating? -I have been meditating.
I got inspired by you. I have.
-Good. Then I’m happy. Because meditation is —
It really is key, because it allows you to — -Do you guys meditate?
Do you guys — [ Cheers and applause ] Not everybody. -You know what?
How about I teach you guys. There is a pranayama
breathing technique which is called
alternate nostril breathing, and it’s
a pretty simple technique. -You’re gonna teach us
how to breathe? -Can I?
Would you be okay with it? [ Cheers and applause ] -Of course.
-So, maybe we can just do it really quickly here,
but if you want to sit at home for 5 or 10 minutes,
it really is effective, because it balances the right
and the left side of your brain. So, basically, all you need
is yourself and your fingers. -Uh-huh.
And, usually, I use these three fingers,
and I put this finger in my third eye, or here,
just to kind of like — You know, that’s just what I do. I’m sure there’s
lots of different ways, so just put it here.
-Yeah. -And you’re gonna
do a big inhale first. [ Breathes deeply ] And then, you’re gonna
close your right nostril and exhale to the left. -Wait, I’m sorry.
Close your nostril? What did I miss?
-So, basically — So, basically —
So close the right nostril. -Oh, with your thumb.
-Yeah, with your thumb. And then,
inhale to the left side. [ Breathing deeply ] [ Laughter ] Close the left,
and exhale to the right. -Oh, and close the left
with the other finger. -And now inhale to the right. [ Breathing deeply ] And exhale to the left. [ Laughter ] Jimmy, are you doing it? -This is more advanced —
I’m doing both nostrils. -No.
[ Laughter ] -You just made millions
of people meditate right now, so thank you, and breathe. [ Cheers and applause ] -Do you guys feel good?
[ Cheers and applause ] They feel great! Gisele Bundchen, everybody! Her new book, “Lessons:
My path to a Meaningful Life” is available now.

    She’s obviously of European blood. It’s silky native Brazilians think they are of the same blood line

    I think that in the end when she started to teach about the breathing exercise, the people didn't understand the real importance of the subject and how that could be useful in their lives.

    This woman is truly incredible. So smart, so thoughtful and grateful, beautiful and even her accent is so lovely. So much to learn from people like her.

    You had that elegant Roman Catholic wedding in Brazil. Do you realize you're miserable because you and your husband are living a lie and don't even come close to following the precepts of Christ's church?

    That meditative exercise is Jewish Kaballah, old Hebrew mysticism. I've been wanting to study some old Jewish mysticism to know more of the foundations of our Roman Catholic faith.

    “I believe in signs”

    Beautiful or not, she’s still just a bat shit crazy broad just like the rest of them…

    WTF was that? No matter which nostril you breathe through it goes to the same lungs! Is she brain dead? This does not 'balance' your brain whatever the hell that means. Another con artist.

    I really don’t find her as attractive as the rest of the world seems to think she is. I mean don’t get me wrong, she’s stunning. And she’s perfect for the look of a model. I guess it’s more of just a personal opinion. Oh and by the way Giselle, your husband kisses your 12 year old son on the lips and holds it for like seven seconds. I swear to God he does that. He does it with his clothes off while a grown man massages him. Swear to God, look it up! It’s true!

    Honestly she’s not that cute. So I don’t know why people are going crazy over her looks. Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria and Eva Mendes all look better then her.

    She seems like a lovely person, but I really don't understand the physical appeal. Am I the only one who thinks she looks masculine?

    I didn’t know anything about her before watching this interview. She seems a very down to earth person.

    Who Cares!!!! I'm beautiful and my husband is good at football, is this what most Americans find entertaining? i'm embarrassed. All late night shows are scripted advertisements, and people still eat it up because of their obsession with celebrity. This is where we are intellectually? Ouch

    Beautiful woman for sure but there is no way in hell I would've let go of Bridget Moynahan for Gisele but that just me.

    Brazilians are great – in United States… but the ones in Brazil… you need to watch out… just cover your ASP.

    She’s Brazilian she needs to go back to her country. Is people like her and thousands more that come to this country and their plan not to stay a few months they plan this by marrying an American and stay here. This needs to stop before it gets way out of hand.
