It is not surprising the stunning Bar Refaeli is one of the world’s top supermodels. Her mother Rachel was a successful model in the 1970s. It just goes to show you that beauty is sometimes in the genes. Refaeli actually began her modeling career at the age of eight months. As a young child, she actually begged her mother to take her in for commercials and photo shoots. It is as though Bar Refaeli has enjoyed being in front of a camera since her birth.
Of course, there is nobody complaining about her desire to be in the public eye either.
Bar Refaeli has been featured in Esquire, Elle, and Sports Illustrated along with several other popular magazines. She has been in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue numerous times and was the provocative cover girl for that edition in 2009. Diddy selected her for one of his “I Am King” cologne advertisements, and Bar Refaeli has also represented Hurley. Pictures of her in Hurley bikinis are some of the most sought after images on the Internet.
While Bar Refaeli’s looks are definitely nothing to scoff at, she is just as famous for her personal life. For the longest time, she was known as the on and off girlfriend of actor Leonardo DiCaprio, but the relationship reportedly came to an end in May 2011. This is great news for the millions of Bar Refaeli fans around the globe, but undoubtedly sad news for Refaeli. Wouldn’t you like to be the one to console this Maxim Top 100 hottie?
If you are trying to get with Bar Refaeli though, you should realize she is not your average supermodel. She may have made just about every “Hot” list there is, but she is more than just a pretty face. She has hosted several television shows, been a judge on Germany’s Next Top Model, and starred in a motion picture titled Session opposite Steven Bauer.
Perhaps Refaeli’s most controversial work to date was a photo shoot she did for GQ Italia. In the assignment, Bar Refaeli gave warfare a totally different appearance when she posed topless on the cover of the magazine’s May 2011 issue. The sultry, blond beauty wore only a helmet while concealing her breasts with one arm. This spread set tongues wagging as Refaeli had seven years ago dodged mandatory enlistment in the Israeli military.
Here at Sweaty Gooch, we are firm believers in doing your military duty, but in the case of a topless Bar Refaeli (or even a bikini clad one), we are willing to forgive.
