To tease its September issue (out this week), V Man magazine filmed cover model Tom Brady posing in a tux and getting all butch with Cujo’s little brother. Famed photog Mario Testino shot the spread and, while the clip is a little too industrial for our tastes, we’re loving Tom in a spiked dog collar. (The things we would do…)
Inside, fashion fox Tom Ford interviews Brady about architecture, family and his feminine side:
“I think to a degree I am [comfortable with myself], says Brady. “I don’t really have anything to hide. I grew up with three older sisters and I have a very sensitive mom and a very sensitive dad, it was an environment where people weren’t afraid to express how they really felt or to express their emotions. I’m very blessed to be able to do that because with my two boys—I kiss them a thousand times a day. My wife and I are very affectionate, it’s just part of our nature.”
“I’m not really concerned with portraying this tough warrior—I mean, that’s part of my job and I take that very seriously. But I don’t have anything to hide and I’m not concerned with what people think—in the end it’s a matter of how comfortable we are with ourselves, how we feel about ourselves when we wake up in the morning. Everyone can portray what they want to portray, but the authentic self and who you are as a person, a human being, that, to me, is what is most important. Those are the things that last.”
Brains, brawn and heart? Giselle, we are coming for your man!
