Gisele Bündchen Dishes on Love and Tom Brady

From the red carpet to courtside seats at the Boston Celtics game, Gisele Bündchen and her football-star boyfriend Tom Brady make a memorable pair. But the Victoria's Secret beauty reveals her guy wasn't always so unforgettable.

"We met through a friend who knew us both for a long time. Believe me, I didn't even remember [the picture of Brady]. Our friend knew that we would like each other. And we did. So I guess he was right," the super-rich supermodel, 27, tells GQ for its July issue.

Striking good looks aren't the only thing this couple has in common – they also share a love of sports. The Brazilian-born Bündchen played professional volleyball as a child, and since dating Brady has learned "why they were all hitting each other" in football.

"I think we have a lot of things in common, and I think he is a really great person. He really, genuinely doesn't have a bad bone in his body. And he is a very positive person," she says.

The Brazilian beauty also dishes on the ups and downs of love and the heartache that can follow. Formerly linked to Leonardo DiCaprio, Bündchen admits: "I've had my heart broken."

And why she hasn't made it to the altar? No one has popped the question.

"Yeah," she admits, "it's true."
