Tom Brady Ranks 23rd on GQ’s List of Top 50 Coolest Men No. 1 in the hearts of Patriots fans, quarterback Tom Brady ranks 23rd on GQ’s list of the Top 50 Coolest Men.

The three-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback is no stranger to being recognized for his coolness. He was named Esquire’s Best Dressed Man in the World in 2007, and is the husband of Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, whom Rolling Stone called "the most beautiful girl in the world."

Not to mention, he looks like a supermodel himself.

"I get so embarrassed having everybody looking at me," Brady told’s Rick Reilly back in 2007. "I just want to stop and go, 'What are you staring at?’"

Brady prefers to stay out of the spotlight, rarely appearing in commercials, unlike many other big-name athletes.

"You realize you're turning down a lot of dough, yeah, but it's just not me," he said. "I'm just not going to go out and do a Chunky Soup ad … Like that [MasterCard] ad Peyton [Manning] did about, 'Cut that meat! Cut that meat!' — our D-line yelled that every time he came up to the line. 'Cut that meat!' Man, I'm so glad I didn't do that one."

GQ chose the coolest men based on "enviable sense of savoir faire, a talent for transforming the mundane into the extraordinary, or just a really edgy haircut," according to

Thirty-seven and a half was the cut-off age for the men on the list.

Topping the list was red-headed royal Prince Harry, with actor Robert Pattinson at No. 2 and President Obama’s aide Reggie Love at No. 3.

Other athletes on the list, which will be released in the July issue, include Usain Bolt (No. 6), Roger Federer (No. 14), Shaun White (No. 20), and Tiger Woods (No. 38).
