Gisele Bündchen is one of the biggest names in the world in the fashion industry. She has reigned over the fashion world for more than two decades. During that time, the Brazilian supermodel has been everywhere. However, prior to her absence in 2023, she reminisced about attending the prestigious event with a former partner, who, contrary to popular belief, was not NFL legend Tom Brady, but someone else.

Brady and Bündchen were a power couple, a union of the best of the fashion and sports industries. They split up recently after 13 years of married life together.

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen once recalled her feelings about going to the Academy Awards night. In a 2019 interview, Bündchen said that she felt unreal when she went there with Leonardo DiCaprio in 2005

“When you go to a place like the Oscars, there’s, like, a lot of people and everyone is screaming. I remember just feeling a bit, like, squeezing his hand and being, like, ‘OK, I’m here,'” the supermodel said in the interview as reported by ET Online.

DiCaprio came to the party with his then-girlfriend and spent some time on the red carpet. He and Bündchen waved at the screaming crowd of fans, just as she described in the interview. The actor had a nomination for Best Actor for his role in ‘Aviator’. He might have lost the award that day, but the couple surely won the fans’ hearts.

Both went their separate ways later but Bündchen never forgot her experience at the place. Although she gave missed the event this time around for what otherwise would have been her first appearance since her divorce from Tom Brady, she surely must remember the feeling of going there the first time.
