Since announcing his second consecutive retirement from the NFL in 2023, Tom Brady has been enjoying his newfound freedom by spending time with his children, celebrating on vessels, and jestingly posting thirst traps on social media.
Furthermore, Brady has been associated with several women since his divorce from Gisele Bündchen, his wife and co-parent. Initially, speculation circulated that he was dating reality star Kim Kardashian, but he was subsequently observed socializing with model Irina Shayk.
Tara Reid, an actress who dated Brady informally before her engagement to Carson Daly in 2000, recently reflected on their time together when he was a rookie with the New England Patriots and she was a Hollywood rising figure due to her work in the American Pie films.
"We would only see each other intermittently," the Sharknado star explained to Bustle in an interview. "It was enjoyable but not serious in nature." We would go to establishments that served beer while dancing and having a good time. "He was quite cool."
She then added that Brady strikes a very different figure these days, and implied that she found his younger, pre-seven-time Super Bowl champion self more charming:
"He’s all skinny now," she said. "He’s so serious. He used to laugh. When I watch his interviews, he’s so cocky now."
