Tom Brady chugs beer, eats first-ever strawberry on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert got New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to break his famously strict diet Monday night.

Appearing as one of Colbert’s guests, the five-time Super Bowl winning quarterback ate a strawberry that he claimed was the first he’s ever eaten. Then, Colbert offered Brady something he “rarely” indulges in on his diet: a beer, which he finished in one quick chug.

Brady was on the show to promote his book, “The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance.”

He also discussed how he felt after losing Super Bowl LII to the Philadelphia Eagles, his third Super Bowl loss in eight trips.


“When you wake up the next morning, it’s like, ‘Was that a nightmare? No, please, we can play this game again,’ ” Brady said.
