Tom Brady on Wife Gisele Bündchen's Modeling Advice: 'I Should Listen to Her a Lot More Often!'

Updated

Tom Brady is a four-time Super Bowl champion and three-time MVP who has led the New England Patriots on an undefeated streak (so far!) this football season. Now, he’s adding another fashion stat to his resume as the new brand ambassador of TAG Heuer watches — though he admittedly leaves most of the modeling to wife, Gisele Bündchen

“She’s a lot better at this than I am,” he told PEOPLE on Tuesday night at the launch event for the Carrera – Heuer 01 timepiece in New York City. “She should give me more advice. I should listen to her more often! That would probably be the best advice I could give myself.”

Brady, 38, describes his personal style as “relaxed,” though he loves a “beautiful watch” to add some bling to his look. But for glitzy nights out, Bündchen gives tips on how to put together the perfect outfit.

“She has her own recommendations, and I certainly listen, because if your wife doesn’t like it, then you should probably move on to something else,” he said, laughing.

The Swiss brand’s new Carrera is sleek but sporty, something that Brady, who said the first nice watch he ever bought himself was a TAG, appreciates in an accessory.

He also takes the campaign’s slogan — Don’t Crack Under Pressure — to heart, especially after fighting through Deflategate earlier this year and shutting down divorce rumors.

“There’s lots of different pressures that you face in your life, there’s lots of different pressures I face in my sport. You embrace them, and I think the challenging things that you’re faced with, whether that’s a challenging situation in a game or a challenging situation in your life, you do the very best you can do,” the father of three said. “I’ve been fortunate to be very blessed with so many friends and family that have supported me, so many teammates over the years that have given me so much support. When I win, I win for them. When I play, I play for them. I represent them, and that’s why I still do it and I still love doing it today.”
