Bar Refaeli Hits Angel Ball 2009 -- Exclusive Interview

Bar Refaeli Hits Angel Ball 2009 -- Exclusive Interview

Bar Refaeli dons a silk crepe Marchesa sheath dress at the 2009 Angel Ball held at Cipriani Wall Street on Tuesday (October 20) in New York City. Here’s what the 24-year-old Israeli supermodel opened up to about:

JJ: What does Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation mean to you?

BR: I love working with charities and cancer is one of the things that touches my heart the most. Cancer research is really important, because one day we’re going to look back and say, “I wish we had that cure back then.” As soon we find it, it’ll be better.

JJ: Have any friends or family members of yours been affected by cancer?

BR: My best friend died two weeks ago. Horrible. I don’t know the name of cancer that he had in English, but it’s very rare and he had it for eight years. He was very brave – he was only 24. Very sad.

JJ: Are you in NYC for anything else?

BR: Yes, I’m working tomorrow, shooting for Garnier.

JJ: I love your commercial, by the way.

BR: Thank you! (laughs) And I just had a work lunch, and got a few jobs. I’ve been off all summer, so it’s about time!

JJ: How did you spend your summer? Did you travel?

BR: I was mostly in Israel. I loved it. Finally! I just chilled with my friends and family on the beach, in the sun and I haven’t had that for so long. I love that. It’s my favorite thing to do.


The evening raised nearly $4 million for cancer research. During the auction, Bar helped sell the $28K diamonds earrings from Lorraine Schwartz that she was wearing. It sold for $45,000!

    love the shoes

  • liverwurst

    who is this very average looking woman?

  • liverwurst

    @dundies: What? These are last years basic pumps!

  • the real lou

    Those have got to be the smallest eyes in the world.

  • Sluterilli

    There she goes! Sluuuting around!!!

  • nobody

    @liverwurst: she’s no one

  • lali


  • HA!

    There is nothing average-looking about this woman. She looks gorgeous as usual. She seems, however, pretty non-chalant ready to party for someone who lost their best friend two weeks ago.

  • Anna

    She’s pretty!!

  • tal

    she looks so hot!!
    love her =))

  • http://israel Lisa rose

    @HA!: agree, its a little wired that she partying only two weeks after she lost her friend…..but she looks AMAZING!!!

  • Honestly I don`t think she looked that great at all – as usual. She definitely doesn`t seem like someone who has just lost a close friend two weeks ago. Those photos from the other day ( lunch with her brother and another guy ) and these… Very weird!

  • ….

    It’s too bad that a beautiful dress is weared by an ugly girl. It’s me or her breast seems bigger?

  • Lilka

    @Lisa rose:

    I agree too. That’s not only about her partying two weeks after she lost her friend but to me it’s weird that in one answer she tells about his death and how sad and horrible it is and in the another one she laughs because interviewer congratulated her about the stupid commercial and talks about her amazing summer at the beach. I couldn’t act like that just two weeks after losing BEST friend (as she called him). Even 4 years after losing my friend I can’t talk about his death in one sentence and laugh in another one, because memories are too painful.

  • hahala

    I prefer Gisele – with Leo and like a topmodel

  • Pandora

    She looks awesome. As to doubting if she lost a friend — her job is not to look morose. Perhaps she grieved him or memorialized him in private. She did say he’d been ill for years so obviously they were expecting it. Why the constant comparision to Giselle? These are two diff women. One (Giselle) looks like a dude, the other (Bar) a female. So your comparision’s kinda wasted.

  • coco

    @hahala: They are both ignorant beady eyed goldiggers going after rich American men. Both shallow b&itches. That’s why Leo dumped them. Thanks for playing.

  • I don’t doubt that she lost a friend I just find her clearly good mood pretty odd…
    She definitely ruined that dress by wearing it.

  • bar fan

    Great pictures! Bar looks simply gorgeous, elegant and extremely classy! Thanks Jared for the nice interview! So I guess spending the most of the summer in Israel was also because she stayed close to her dying friend. So sad.

    I’m glad to learn she got a few jobs. Hope to see her in many events and commercials

  • wow

    @bar fan: You said:So I guess spending most of the summer in Israel was also because she stayed close to her dying friend. So sad

    That’s not what she said! That what you assumed! She spent her summer in Israel because Leo dumped her and she had nowhere to go! Imagine she was OFF FOR THE WHOLE SUMMER! Thank jared!

    When Leo’s oma died she was at the beach laughing so I’m not surprised. I’m think Bar might have down syndrome just a little bit and I’m being serious. She seems a little off sometimes! :( But RIP to her “best friend” Im sure he’s in a better place!

  • Dieter

    JARED – DID YOU HAVE A GRAB ON THE POOPER OF HERS !!!!!! I saw her one year ago in London. I got an instant hard-on and had to wank immidiately !!!!

  • bar fan

    Jared, I have to say…. you do have very elegant and respectful people who post on you blog. WOW! A shrink might come up with great results after analyzing their HQs! Is it always like that? Or they comment only on successful models with great bodies and personalities. Interesting.

  • wow

    I thought it was IQ! haha! Maybe you need some analyzing yourself! lol Bar suucks!

  • Jeannified

    She looks stunning in this dress! So elegant!

  • jsy

    Wearing an elegant dress is not going to make anyone classy, especially not Bar. x 17 o n l i n e got it right in their post about her…

  • cocoispsychotic

    Bafr fan; There’s only one person writing all those hateful comments. She’s a major psycho who stalks Bar day and night on the internet. The lunatic goes on every internet site that mentions Bar because she’s obssessed with Bar and is secretly in love with her.
    I have it on good authority that this nutcase is in a group home for the mentally ill and spends all day in the library searching for Bar information. She’s is out of control who needs to get back on her meds!

  • yeah, of course there`s only one person who doesn`t like Bar. Whatever makes you happy! LOL!

  • coco

    @cocoispsychotic: you have nothing “on authority” except the voices in your head. Hahahahaha!!!

  • SuperJeweler

    Okay, love those earrings.

  • Babs

    @coco: LOL! Good one Coco!!

  • Ckayed

    This is the prettiest I have ever seen her look. Very nice Bar, very nice.

  • didi

    who is she,and why she is so ugly!?!?!!?!?!!

  • Bar fan

    Thanks cocoispsychotic… you are completely right. I knew she had to be a total psycho to behave like that…. for sure. But you have to agree she is the perfect subject of analysis for a shrink.

  • wow

    I love how people are still asking ‘who is she’ questions! LOL! Thats great!

  • lakers fan in boston

    she looks pretty good
    the dress was ok, nothing special but she still looks nice
