Just hours before Tom Brady announced his retirement from the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback stepped out in Los Angeles to celebrate the premiere of his new movie 80 for Brady.

After dipping his feet into the acting pool with help from co-stars Jane Fonda, Sally Field, Lily Tomlin, and Rita Moreno, Tom couldn't help but express interest in working on more movie projects.

"It's definitely something I'm interested in doing," Tom told E! News' chief correspondent Keltie Knight at the film's premiere Jan. 31. "If it always turns out like this, how could you turn this down?"

80 for Brady tells the story of a group of girlfriends who have a life-long mission to go to the Super Bowl and meet Tom. While the athlete has much more experience throwing touchdowns than acting on camera, he praised his co-stars for being so welcoming and supportive.

"Not only are they amazing actors, they are amazing women and they were so sweet," he said. "They walked me through everything I had to do and they made me feel so comfortable."
