Bar Refaeli is an Israeli model. She was born in 1985 in Hod HaSharon, Israel. She is known for her relationship with actor Leonardo di Caprio. She’s on the cover model of the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She is definately a hottie and I’m sure that we’ll hear and see more of her in the future. I never thought that a woman named Bar could be this sexy. She’s appeared in Elle Magazine in France, Maxim and GQ. Bar Refaeli is an occasional actress as well. In 2009 she starred in her first full length English language feature entitled Sessions. She was the subject of controversy in 2007 when it came to light that Bar Refaeli had married a family acquaintance and divorced him soon after in order to avoid military service in the Israel Defense Forces. Military service is compulsory for both men and women in Israel (although there are certain exceptions). The Israeli Forum for the Promotion of Equal Share in the Burden threatened to boycott the fashion chain Fox if they hired Refaeli. Eventually the 2 parties reached a compromise. Refaeli agreed to visit injured IDF soldiers on visits to Israel and encourage enlistment in the army. Personally I can’t imagine this fine example of beauty in an Israeli Defense Force uniform.
