Tom Brady Lends His 'Molten Stare' to Details


From Details September '09 cover story:

"Few would know [how tough modeling is] better than the Patriots star: he of the molten stare in the Stetson ads, he who flirted last year with becoming the new face and bulge of Calvin Klein's underwear ad campaign (but who eventually declined), he who can be seen hobnobbing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute Gala, that beehive of fashionistas, with Gisele on his arm. With his cleft-chinned, lantern-jawed, comic-book-hero face and dandyish flair for style, Brady is no stranger to the modeling life, to the tinsel of high fashion. Sure, Peyton Manning gets his picture snapped once in a while, but God forbid anyone ask him to flash his bedroom eyes. No, Tom Brady owns this particular overlap of football and fashion, of athletics and aesthetics (or co-owns it, anyway, with David Beckham). So we trust him. He knows."

More shots, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Unless he has done something wonderful for the glbt community, I would prefer not to hear about him.

  2. Maybe I am mistaken, but didn't he campaign for McCain?

  3. He's an independent.

  4. Tom Brady is a MEEEEEE-CHIGAN man (and a fine one at that)! And he's the baby's daddy to 2 future Michiagn QBs.

  5. He's a republican and he's a tool.

  6. I'm used to viewing headshots for actors...and sorry to say, there is no life behind the eyes in these the cleft chin, but he looks very mannequin-ish in these photos.

  7. sometimes you just have to set the politics aside....

    this is one of those times....

  8. I have to agree with Windy, there's not much going on behind those eyes. Boring. And where was this shot, the Ace Hotel?

  9. he has a handsome face. but i'm not getting the sex appeal vibe from him.

  10. Ih I had represented him back in my model agent days, I'm sure I would have heard constantly, "he's only got one look."

    What is the obsession with straight White guys day after day? And while it's cool to be of whatever political affiliation you want, why not at least find straight white guys who support us? Are there no straight guys of color to post about?

    Of course I love the blog, but, even a loyal reader can get a little frustrated.

  12. Tom Brady on how he plays with Matt Cassell:

    “Matt and I fight like teenage girls,” said Tom Brady, speaking of backup QB Matt Cassel. “We are always slapping each other around and wrestling and slap boxing and [messing] around with each other in the weight room. And so I decided to take that to the next level. And we were messing around in the quarterback room one day and he walked in with a milkshake, and I kind of put my foot by the door, and I kicked the door and the milkshake splashed up and went all over him. So he sat down, and I was laughing. So I said give me the towel, because I wanted to clean up the wall. So I threw the towel at his face, and it had shake all over it. He had a little shake in his mouth and he spit it all over me.”

  13. Tom was also featured in some interesting photo ads for Smart Water this past spring.

  14. He's cute, yes. Molten stare? No. He looks constipated.

  15. You guys are getting him mixed up with Brady Quinn, who campaigned for McCain. And kind of sucks as a QB.

    Tom Brady was a guest at one of Bush's State of the Union addresses a couple weeks after the Patriots won one of their Superbowls a few years ago, but that's it as far as political appearances go.

    I agree with someone else here, he's a handsome guy, but he doesn't really do anything for me.

  16. You queens are such bitches. He is hot and talented and smart and sexy! Give it a rest. Cunts!

    Posted by: Dave | Aug 11, 2009 2:27:16 PM

  17. I see him and think, rock head.
    I don't mean that as a compliment.

  18. meanwhile, Details needs to go thru a font-change... looks like a derivative from the same camp as Men's Health and DNA. In these dinosaur days of magazines they really need to notch it up abit visually to compensate for the vacuous content.

  19. Meh. Looks like he's gonna have dementia at age 79 anyway.

    Posted by: Tom A | Aug 11, 2009 4:03:50 PM

  20. Don't care if he's a rock head (which he probably is), or if he went to one state of the union address with a Republican years and years ago (kind of meaningless). He's pretty to look at and uber talented. What else matters?

  21. Derek Washington : Let's not forget that this is no more than Andy Towle's personal blog. Towleroad isn't put out by some greater gay entity. Although he tries to cover a lot of news stories important to gay interests overall, he makes choices to his own taste. I don't want to read about Lady Gaga or see his one-sided reporting on those he personally hates, etc., but he has every right to do so.

  22. Tom Brady photo shoots are always such bores. When do we get to see him with his shirt off?

    Posted by: Jordan | Aug 11, 2009 6:13:58 PM

  23. i can see why people think he's handsome but just doesnt do it for me, Ill take the hot Serb tennis player a few posts down :)

  24. I know this a total gay cliche,(ever hot guy is gay) but my gaydar was going off long before I knew who this was pictured. Total bottom, too.

  25. and Plueeeze bitches, if he was your next door neighbor neighbor you would think of little else except the quickest route to the disrobing of said neighbor.
