Bar Refaeli Covers 'Esquire' July 2009

Bar Refaeli wears merely a white bikini bottom and some body paint on the July 2009 cover of Esquire. Here’s what the 23-year-old supermodel opened up to the mag about:

On her ambitions: “Heidi Klum. I really like what she’s doing. It’s what I picture myself as.”

On having part of a Stephen King story written on her body for the cover: “I haven’t seen anything like that ever. So I wanted to be the girl who did it.”

On her childhood on the Israeli coast: “I walked along dirt roads and picked oranges and played with dogs and rabbits and chickens and horses.”

    So….where pics of her and LEO????. Probably another 2-3 days and we’ll see lovely couple together!!!!

  • @51

    yeah, right. Even if there are going to be pictures of them together again they are going to look as miserable and distant as ever.
    So being a supermodel means naked, boring and uninspiring these days? In that case Barf is a supermodel.

  • @51


    They have never been a couple and they are not cute when they are together.

  • it’s Candace

    “I sat on the side of the road eating oranges and walnuts dreaming of the day I would be old enough to meet (sleep with) an American actor a decade older than me to advance my ‘career’ in showing mine azz naked on the covers on magazines in the U.S. Now my dream has come true.”
    Don’t forget to point your toes, stick out your collarbones, and lengthen your fingers people!!! Work it!

  • Unmoved

    All of you cute little teeny boppers can cut the jealousy game. Bar and Leo are no longer together. Kaput. Finito. Got that?
    Now calm down.

  • lola

    she”s always acted like a tart!

  • @55

    Candace that is pretty funny! lol

  • lakers fan in boston

    i hate it when ppl call any model a supermodel
    just because she’s known and is a model doesnt mean she’s a supermodel
    only supermodels in my book r kate moss and gisele, they actually have contracts with actual fashion houses
    she looks alright, i agree she’s been looking better tho

  • @55

    That is hilarious!!! LMAO!

  • anon

  • G

  • Barfie

    She will never be a Heidi Klum.
    Keep dreaming Barfie.

  • adna

    I don’t like this cover.Again naked. Its realy shame!!!.
    #55 You are right – “”Now her dream has come true.”"
    But…Who will listening our opinion???? She still continion make a naked covering and she and press don’t care what thing about this ppl, even Leo!!!.
    WHO CARE WHAT WE ARE THINKING???. And this is very sad!!!!
    Izrail must to make boykot of her!!!!. Cos its shame also for her country!!

  • karin@

    Would have seen you Leo and her together since for a long time, me not. They do not seem be any more photographed together but each from their part. Noticed you the wink of Léo one evening in the match with its enormous cross in jewel???? I think that he clearly showed us that he remained catholic I do not think of it harmless!!!! In fact I worry that a man as him, the most dreamed about the planet where billions of women dream to be his wife, where he interresse in this girl’s “kind stripped (revealed) on billions of sites ” ;o(

  • Where is Bar?

    Is Bar still in Israel or is she already back in LA?
    Does anyone of you know it?

  • @72

    @Where is Bar?:

    we don’t care about Barf but she is still in Israel

  • @72

    She was in Israel yesterday smiling and posing with Israeli soldiers at a charity even meanwhile here in the U.S. we can read about her being a draft dodger. Ironic!
    Unfortunately I think she is going to show up in L.A. very soon.

  • @72


  • Heart of Glass

    sorry, but I don’t feel like they’re dating anymore..

    I feel like Leo’s single and on the prowl right now… I truly believe that… And if you look at recent photos of him, he is oozing with sexuality, like a true scorpio…. he looks like a guy who is on the prowl. I see it very clearly in his photos and the magnetic energy of the scorpio is all around him right now.. something is going to happen for him—and i have no doubt in my mind about that !!!

  • Heart of Glass

    if you read about Scorpios right now, you will see what I’m talking about. Also, Leo has four major planets in Scorpio (his sun, moon, venus and mars) are all in scorpio…That is 4 major planets which is a BIG deal in astrology. If you read about whats going on for scorps right now, you will see what I’m talking about. There’s a major shift going on in their LOVE life … And even more for LEO b/c he has 4 planets including his Mars and Venus which are the love planets…

  • french

    @Heart of Glass:

    Leo and Barfie have never been a couple

  • @72

    It isnt ironic that she showed up with soldiers just as she was getting negative publicity for being a draft dodger. THAT WAS WELL PLANNED!! She is so fake. If she doesnt believe in the draft then be a woman( haha not barfie) and stand up for your beliefs. But dont act like she’s supporting the soldiers when she is against the draft. Hypocrite. Two face. This B*tch knows how to play the game but this too will bite her in the a** one day.

  • @79

    I just heard that showing up at that charity event with the soldiiers was part of an agreement so Fox ( the clothing line she models for ) won’t get boycotted in Israel. Wow, what an inspiration she is! Great pick, Leo!

  • Her movie ‘Session’

    The release date for her ‘Session’ is now dated on with “USA 4 February 2010 (limited) “.
    Now that sounds great! I thought they were about releasing it in September this year, but it seems their seeking for investors by eBay didn’t work out and now they plan to try it in February next year. Ugh, no, I think it won’t work either. So the best they could do is to organize a “special screening” for old fat rich horny guys on a private yacht…or better in the bin with it.

  • Barf is on the cover of the June issue of Italian GQ. Her legs wide open on the cover and you can see her fake boobs in a see through shirt inside. Typical! Class act girlfriend for Leo…

  • @82

    they r not dating anymore…

  • @83

    They broke up so many times and they got back together all the time. I wanna see at least one of them dating someone else and then I`ll believe that they are over.

  • Leo and Barfie are finito!

  • adna

    i didn’t see this cover.can you give a linck please

  • ….

    The links have been posted. Go search for it. But they have never been a real couple to begin with anyways but now Leo stop pretending to be her fake boyfriend. Now he’s really free! Lisa rose must be so sad!!! lol

  • @87

    Don`t forget that lisa rose doesn`t think Leo is good enough for Barf… I can`t believe someone seriously thinks that way but if you are right and what lisa rose wrote is true she must be happy.

  • Bar Refaeli is a biitch
  • @89

    That’s probably her favorite position.

  • OMG

    OMG! I’m speechless! How far down will she go yet?!?!?
    Does she really think a pose like that has something to do with modeling and would help her public image in a positive way?!? It’s looking like p-o-r-n and pretty much strange to everything what REAL models would do, because such poses are very provoking and vulgar and don’t belong to a decent esthetically modeling job!!! This is for erotic-magazines only. Well, I’m totally disappointed. Pretty girl, but brainless and w/o moral, it seems ;(

    #89 I saw that pic before, it’s old.

    I think all Models are doing the same thing these days, b/c I just saw another naked model on a magazine cover yesterday. Her name is Natalia Vodianova. And then there was Miranda Kerr a few days ago. So I agree that it’s getting weirder and weirder, modeling is turning into p-o-r-n…

    but at least Miranda is doing it to save the koalas LOL :P

  • french

    @Heart of Glass:

    Natalia Vodianova is a real model and she is not always naked

  • but the face

    They should have put writing on her face too so it’s not visible.
    Continuing the “ESQUIRE” over the butterface would have been good.

  • misteranlo

    Yeah, what a body. She’s a very hot topmodel!

  • @ 96

    Very funny Tzipi – she is not a top model!!!

  • Vestes de Cuisine

    That cover is so amazing!!
