If you need to talk your way out of a speeding ticket, being a supermodel doesn’t hurt.
On Saturday Gisele Bundchen got off with a verbal warning after being pulled over for going 70 in a 55 mph zone, Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio said today.
Bundchen was driving along Route 6 on Cape Cod, about an hour and a half from Foxborough, Mass., where her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, played against the San Diego Chargers Sunday.
“He reminded her that the speed limit on the Cape is 55, not 65 as it is in other parts of the state,” Procopio told the Boston Herald.
Procopio told the Boston Globe Trooper Michael Hopper pulled over 25 drivers Saturday and gave verbal warnings to four other drivers who were cited for other traffic violations in addition to speeding.
“She was slightly over the speed limit. There was no other dangerous behavior. There were no lane violations, no swerving, no aggressive driving – just driving too fast,” he told The Globe.
Hopper reportedly saw two kids properly secured in the backseat but did not confirm whether or not one of them was her son.
Bundchen recently returned from Brazil where she had been promoting music festival Rock in Rio.
She shared her love affair with fast cars during a 2004 ESPN interview about her role as a Brazilian bank robber in “Taxi.”
“I like to drive fast cars! It was a fun experience. I had a blast!” she said at the time.
When asked if she had ever gotten a speeding ticket, Bundchen told ESPN she’s gotten pulled over “a couple of times,” but only got one speeding ticket when she was 17. “And I think I got that one because I couldn’t speak English very well at the time so I couldn’t talk my way out of it.
“I think being a woman is good in that department,” she said in the 2004 interview. “I drive pretty fast … I love adrenaline so imagine me in a car.”
