Model Gisele Bündchen is reflecting on why her five-year relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio came to an end in 2005.
In PORTER’s Spring issue, Gisele says of the split, “No longer numbing myself with smoking, drinking and too much work, I was becoming more and more aware of things that I’d chosen not to look at.”
She continued, “Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”
Bündchen went on to date and marry New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The 38-year-old offered a little glimpse into her nearly 10-year marriage, as she described their fashion differences.
“I’m a jeans and T-shirt kinda girl. If you see me once a year at the Met [Gala] dressed up, it’s because I have to wear a dress, otherwise I’d show up like this,” she told the magazine.
She continued, “It’s so funny. Tom actually loves clothes more than I do. Sometimes I’m like, ‘What is all this clothing that is showing up at my house?’ He just loves it. The only time he asks me advice about clothes is when we go to the Met Ball, and he wants to coordinate with what I’m wearing.”
Gisele and Tom have two children, Benjamin, 9, and Vivian Lake, 6. Brady also has an 11-year-old son, Jack, from his relationship with Bridget Moynahan.
