Apart from his tremendous basketball career, Charles Barkley is known for his big personality and interesting comments he makes every time he is hosted on various tv shows.
During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Barkley didn’t disappoint and shared an interesting story about meeting Tom Brady prior to the Super Bowl that was held in Atlanta. Barkley is a good friend of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick who invited him into their locker room when the funny situation happened.
I made a mistake, Jimmy. looked Tom Brady in the eyes. I’m looking at these guys and all of a sudden I look at Rob Gronkowski and then Tom Brady is right here, and I look him in the eyes, and I said, ‘Damn, you’re a pretty man.’ That’s what I was thinking to myself. I got so embarrassed I started turning my head to talk to him. Like, I was like, ‘Hey Tom, it’s good to see you, man. I haven’t seen you in a while.
“I see why he scores all those touchdowns because the defense is looking at his eyes and get mesmerized. That Tom Brady, he’s a pretty man. He’s a nice guy, too, but man, I can’t look him in the eyes.”
