Sally Field joins Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Rita Moreno in the new film 80 For Brady about friends who take a road trip to witness Tom Brady play in a Super Bowl. Tom also stars in the film, and Sally admitted that he was very nervous.
Sally said about working with Tom for the first time, “He was lovely. He just was Tom Brady. He was a completely lovely human. He told me, ‘I’m so nervous.’ He felt like he didn’t know where to put his feet. But he was a natural. Athletes get the same kind of adrenaline, except most actors aren’t worried that their limbs will be ripped off.”
