Gisele B¨ndchen & Tom Brady
On Feb. 26 Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY, 31, and girlfriend of two years, model GISELE BUNDCHEN, 28, ended their brief engagement—he popped the question in early January—and tied the knot in a top-secret ceremony in Santa Monica. With Brady’s 18-month-old son John Edward (mom is actress Bridget Moynahan) in tow, the newlyweds later retreated to their Brentwood, Calif., home with a small group of guests to celebrate privately. Still, their chemistry is pretty hard to keep under wraps. “He is a superathlete, and she is a supermodel,” Brady’s trainer, Oscar Smith, tells Scoop. “They belong together!”

5 Questions for Watchmen‘s …
JEFFREY DEAN MORGAN
The hunky star of Watchmen talks about the perils of wearing a superhero costume, his emotional fans—and if he’s single!
1 In Watchmen you play a vigilante turned superhero. Was it a pleasant change from your role as good guy Denny on Grey’s Anatomy?
I probably could have made a living off of playing [him] or characters that might be for romantic comedies. But I wanted to take a chance.
2 What was it like wearing a superhero costume every day?
It was a pain in the ass! It looked cool, but it was hard to move in.
3 Did you work out a lot to prepare for the role?
Yeah. I’m not a young man anymore, so there were days I couldn’t get out of bed. I was really sore.
4 Ever have any strange fan encounters?
Denny provokes some weird stuff. I don’t even know how to respond to people who cry. I’m like, “It’s a TV show!”
5 You and Mary-Louise Parker ended your engagement last year. What’s your dating status?
It’s just me and my dog right now.
