This is the ultimate bromance, y'all.
Tom Brady revealed one thing in particular that helped him get through such a trying year — his friendship with A-listers Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Mark Wahlberg… casual.
Amid Deflategate and fighting ongoing divorce rumors, the Boston natives stepped in to support the struggling New England Patriots' leading man.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in NYC on Tuesday night, 38-year-old shared:
"I've been a displaced Californian living in Boston and realizing the roots and how strong the Boston culture is, so that's where I've been for 16 years of my life. That's where my kids were born, and that's where I'll live, so it's a great place to live. We live in a great neighborhood, and there's a lot of roots in Boston, so [those] guys in particular, I've gotten to know over the years and they're all friends. They believe in what we're doing, and it's great to have such great support from, you know, all those guys. That is the Boston crew man."
#SquadGoals almost seems too punny here… because, you know, football.
The pals are so close that Brady even let 43-year-old Affleck's nanny wear his four Super Bowl rings on a flight to Sin City — how nice of him!

At the event, Gisele Bündchen's husband was announced as Tag Heuer's new brand ambassador. The father of three opened up about how the company's slogan — "Don't Crack Under Pressure" — relates to his own life:
"Well, I've had a lot of events in my life that have motivated me. Starting with high school — the love of the game, the love of my sport, it started in high school. There's challenges in college. There's challenges when I started professionally. There's been challenges when I injure myself. There's challenges this off season, but, I think all of those things reinforce what your belief systems are."
Through all the ups and downs, the quarterback stays focused:
"You know, my motivation is to be the best that I can be. To be the best I can for my teammates, and never let my teammates down. I take my job very seriously. I put a lot into it. I'm happy we're off to a good start."
Seems to be paying off! The Pats are currently 4-0 and first in the AFC Eastern Division heading into this Sunday's game versus the Colts.
Maybe we will see a few familiar faces in the stands cheering him on!
