Bar Refaeli: Sports Illustrated Sexy

Bar Refaeli chatted with People before sharing the news of her Sports Illustrated cover model status with her friends, family or boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio. Here’s an snippet of what the 23-year-old Israeli model had to say:

What will your grandparents say about your sexy photo spread? They are so proud! My grandma says she walks down the street and people ask her, ‘Are you Bar Refaeli’s grandmother?’ I’m like, dude – I mean, you’re very beautiful, but we don’t really look alike! We have 60 years between us. She’s so proud. She keeps every single article on me.

Was getting this cover a goal of yours? It was my dream. When I was 15 and started modeling, my agent came to my house with Sports Illustrated magazines and taught me to look at the girls and the way they communicated with the camera. I learned from them.

Do you think Leo will like the cover? Are you two happy together? I don’t know. I really, really love it. I’m sure people will, too. I am very happy!

    I like that fact that she actually looks healthy. I don’t see any ribs or bones sticking out.

  • maya

  • french

  • fgh

    She is gorge and her body is great, I can see that some girls r jealoussss HAHAHAHAHA
    BUT she could lost some weight, maybe 10 pounds and then I will say: “wonderful girl”

  • llk

    I`m afraid we`ll have to see her all over the place in the coming weeks. Yuck!
    `I`m sure people will like it.` You are wrong about that. Enjoy while it lasts.

  • french

    i’m not jealous of a stupid/hypocrite girl , fake boobs , ugly face , ugly body ,….

    why when someone said that she is ugly , everybody say that she is jealous ?

  • dundies

    um…these look really amateur. //how can being on the cover of SI be a dream???? oh..right…it makes you famous

  • steven

    Smokin hot bod. Ordinary face.

    Too bad big t!ts don’t translate into more brain cells, “I don’t know … I’m very happy”.

    My 7 year-old neice has larger vocab and can describe better than this twit

  • dundies

    why when someone said that she is ugly , everybody say that she is jealous ?

    —-

    because those people are ignorant to think, that ppl *really do* have their own opinions

  • mr. d

    One thing I do know for sure This twit or any other model wouldn’t give Leonardo DiCaprio the time of day if he wasn’t a big star raking in the dough. He is one ugly mofo that would be relegated to masturbation if not for the fact that he is a celebrity.

  • french

    # 10 : yes , everybody have their own opinions

  • maya

    be sure: WE READ THOSE MAGAZINES FOR FUN, you know?

  • Tealeaf

    Honestly there are much prettier models with better bodies…and no implants..Iam jealous of Gisele career…Bar not so much

    Leo named helped her

  • hannahh

    maya what are you talking about?? Nobody said anything about her being from Israel…?????? PSYCHO.

  • hannahh

    Tealeaf you’re right…I like Gisele more.

  • stela

    bar said in an interview: “You know what?,” she says, “I was a very shy girl growing up. And I never liked the attention — you can tell today, I don’t like attention. I wanna be left alone. And I don’t like — even when people pay me compliments I’m very shy about it. I feel more comfortable in front of the camera. I wear things that I wouldn’t feel comfortable in normally, and I just take on a different character that is way more open and way more confident.” she makes me smile

  • maya

    #17 i just read the comment on the other reports and i just knew that the next comments will be like that there are people that hates her beacuse she is jew and beacuse she is from israel and i just wanted to make it clear….

  • To maya

    Who said anything about her religion or her home country? FYI there are people here who don’t like her because of the way she got out of military service in Israel and how she talked about it later. You are totally wrong and what you wrote about has nothing to do with this post.

  • maya

    #17 i saw the other comments on other reports and i just knoe their are gonna be here comments like that so i jut wanted to make it clear!

  • spanish

    my opinion: a little bit fat to be a model…
    But the truth is that not many women have natural slim complexion

  • Ihb

    Steps, you seriously believe that she actualle means it? That’s cute.

  • justmehere

    #13: I just wanted to let you know I feel with you friend and with all those people whom happened to have experienced such a hard fate! And I hope for you all people there this hurting time end for good as soon as possible…Peace for all people and all creatures on our planet, for all times!!! May the Mother Nature to be merciful to us and (willing) to save all of her children…

  • Halo

    To be honest…why is she a model? She has one the most average looking faces I’ve ever seen. I just don’t see model material here with Bar.

  • parisgirl

    That girl is fat? You guys are unbelievable lol. I actually like her body, like someone else said she looks thin but in an healthy way.
    Too bad her face doesn’t do it for me. Then again, neither does Giselle’s and look where she is now so *shrugs*

  • maya

    #tanx i hope so too :)

  • http://gpost Team Lara Croft

    10 times prettier than gisele!

  • Maria

    Maya it’s so easy to say that people don’t her like coz she is Israeli and Jewish, but i am not that this the case here… And Israel’s trouble with it’s image, especially after the last war in Gaza should not be mentioned here, it’s really not the place….
    I don’t like Bar, i think she is pretty and she is hot, but there are prettier models. But she is not ugly at all, no matter how much Leo helped her if she was ugly she wouldn’t be in SI for the 3rd year i a row…. so chill…

  • maya

    #30 listen even you didn’t like what i wrote ‘cuz you know it is true! i don’t really care ‘cuz i can write whatever i want ok?! just like you!
    and don’t tell me to chill i can do whatever i want! and i didn’t talk about the ones who dosn’t like her beacuse they think she isn’t pretty i talked about the jews haters…besides even if she wasn’t jew i think that you can’t judge a person before you get to know him and i don’t think that any of the people who says she is a **** knows
    her….so chill…

  • maya

  • haha

    #13 if you’re a nurse then I hope I never ever and I mean ev-er end up in your care. You can barely form a sentence, I would hate to see you handle a needle!

    As for Bar. I dunno. I don’t think she’s wow stunning, but I don’t think she’s ugly. I just really wish I didn’t have to read how she is Leonardo’s girlfriend every time she got posted about. It gets redundant. She’s been around long enough for me to know who she is and who she dates, without being told over and over again.

    I think her and Leo are fine for each other. I used to think he was cute when I was a kid, but now I think he’s just ok. He’s not some stunningly gorgeous guy and she’s not some stunningly gorgeous girl… they’re excellent for each other :)

    I do think Leo will make a hot older guy tho, like that one guy from Grey’s Anatomy and whatever that show is. That silvery guy is hot!

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    this clothes hanger’s getting alot of attention on this site.

  • maya

    #33 ok listen i am only 14 years old so 1. i can’t be a doctor!
    2. what do you expected i wasn’t born in america! if you know how to read you’d see that…
    and 3. it is sad that from the long comment i wrote what you cared about was my grammer mistakes?!?

  • french

    #32 : you are right
    (i hate bar but not because she is jewish , people who hate bar for that , they are so stupid)

  • bd

    i think there are other girls to put in the cover…i heard that leo want her in this cover to piss of gisele…what a child! how old is he ? its time to move on…i dont think it worked because gisele is in other level of model, she did more than 5 cover of american vogue which is every girls dream as model why she cares about this….kkkk

  • french

    #37 : Leo never said that , i think it’s bar who created this rumour
    you are stupid to believe that

  • Layla

    She is cute but far from been a topmodel, the only reason she get attention is because of her famous boyfriend.

  • ihb

    It`s a rumor that Leo wanted to piss off Gisele with Bar on the cover. I doubt it but it certainly created enough attention just when the SI cover was revealed. What a coincidence!

  • kat

    there are so many girls to put in the cover and they choose bar, because of“leo“ of course … if she was really a good model she would done more important jobs in the industry of modelling, like american vogue cover, versace,dolce;gabbana work….all this time as leo`s girlfriend she never got any of this obvius they dont talent in her…she is not ugly but only for biquini photos and thats is nothing…

  • Kevin

    Maya #13
    Like always jews are the victims! if the person is ugly is because she is jew and you are a racist , give me a break idiot
    Since you have mentioned ( no us) the israelis soldiers are not kids honey, they are baby killers, your country is doing to palestinians what hitler did to thejews and the rockets are fire works nothing else oh and also a excuse to israel governament kill more palestinians.

    by the way, when israelis will stop living off welfare of united states???

  • bad

    this cover is weak…Si made much better cover, actually with much better models…

  • jade

    She is gorge and her body is great, I can see that some girls r jealoussss HAHAHAHAHA
    BUT she could lost some weight, maybe 10 pounds and then I will say: “wonderful girl”

    ARE YOU FOR REAL? SHE HAS A GREAT BODY! UGLY FACE, BUT SHE DOES NOT NEED TO LOSE ANY WEIGHT! SHE WOULD BE ANOREXIC DUMB AZZ!

  • JGL

    She’s got a great body with an average face. Cover isn’t great. There’s been better. Prefer other pictures from her photo spread like the shot with her in the stripe bikini. I agree with some of the comments here that she wouldn’t have landed the cover if she was not dating Leo. Lucky for her. And no, #13, my comments about her SI cover is not because of her race/religion.

  • SHIAS FAN

    she is so beautiful and there are no opinions such as she is ugly !!!ok she isnt your taste but not that she is ugly!!you mus t be blind to tell her ugly…what if you see a true ugly then it will be beautiful for you!?

  • macca

    Just another beautiful airhead.

  • not me

    #13 Maya

    What you are describing as Israeli life is 100 times worse for the Palestinians that your country had invaded and occupied for a long time. So don’t cry about Israel. You are no angels either.
    And people do not really care where she is from they dislike her for sleeping with Leo to get to places. She is pretty but not stunning. Leo brought her to where she is.

  • why do you care?!

    #42 If I would have felt some kind of need to attack you I would have attacked you a long time ago ’cause it’s so easy to see the “poor” palestinians that are attacked by Israeli soldiers when we suffer for almost 10 years from their stupid attacks, kidnaps and explosions and believe me that if any other country would have been attacked like that it would have attacked those dumb arabs immediatly! only Israel is afraid of bad publicity when everybody knows that palestinians run in the streets of Gaza with children and babies in their arms as armors because they have no mercy or respect for human rights!

    I think her face is ordinairy but her body is amazing and natural and she probobly deserves it but…. its really uncool to marry an old guy to escape militairy service =\

  • Marilena

    I don’t like very much the proportions of her body, there’s something wrong in her waist/hips.
    Of course she is not ugly at all!!
