Gisele: I Don't Even Own a Hairbrush

Though she never seems to have a hair out of place, and is even the brand ambassador for major hair care brand Pantene, it turns out Gisele Bundchen is a whole lot less high maintenance than one might think.
In fact, the 33-year-old supermodel doesn't even own a hairbrush.
"In my job you have to remember people are brushing my hair every day. You have to remember the last thing I want [on a day off] is a brush in my hair!" she says in a new interview with the Associated Press about not owning what most people would call a basic necessity. Her go-to style is a "sleek bun," since when she's not working, she doesn't have much time to put into her hair, she says.
And according to Gisele, looking good is really about healthy eating more than anything else.
"Products are amazing but if you are putting things that are unhealthy inside your body it's just masking stuff. ... I haven't drank soda in 10 years," she says. "My kids eat what I eat. The first [solid] food my son had was papaya and then avocado. ... He loves garlic because we eat a lot of garlic in our house. Even my little daughter. ... She will not eat anything unless there's garlic. Garlic and ginger. ... They really eat what I eat."
In the candid new interview, the often private star also dishes about her home life with her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady -- including how they both unwind at the end of the day.
"At night if my husband is watching TV and watching football, I have my little book and I put something in my ears so I don't hear it and I put my light [on] and have my book and I'm like, 'Ohhh.' He's feeding his soul and that's important to him to watch football. I only want to watch if I'm watching him," she admits.
She also gives context to the frequent paparazzi photos of the two hugging and kissing their children Ben, 4, Vivian, 1, and Brady's son with ex Bridget Moynahan, Jack, 6.
"He's very loving and it's a wonderful thing. In our house we are very affectionate," she explains. "I think it's very important for the boys to know that it's OK to hug and to kiss and you're not less than a man."
