Bar Refaeli: Bikini Babe in 'Maxim' September 2012!

Bar Refaeli: Bikini Babe in 'Maxim' September 2012!

Bar Refaeli heats up the cover of Maxim‘s September 2012 issue in a tiny black bikini.

Here is what the 27-year-old Israeli model, who was voted to the top of Maxim‘s Hot 100 List earlier this year, had to share with the mag:

On being voted to number one: “It doesn’t feel real, because I still can’t believe it. I feel like someone’s going to call and tell me there’s been a mistake.”

On not getting asked out much: “It’s true, and I think part of the reason is that I’m not out much. I’m usually at a photo shoot or going to sleep early. I don’t really have a chance to meet people other than businessmen on planes. They’re all married and much older, though.”

On her favorite body part: “My stomach is hard, and I’m very proud of it. I still eat, though. To me that’s one of the best things in life.”

  • lisa

    Uhoh, Here come the haters/anti semites in 5,4,3, 2, 1….

    Bar Rafaeli naked? C’mon, tell me something new, please!

  • LOL

    Yawn. Playboy next.

  • DB

    I do wish her hips were a bit wider and rounder (to match her bust) but she s a pretty lady.

    Wonder if they Photoshopped off some of those hips?

    She’s no Salma Hayek but she’ll do. :)

  • DB

    Jokingly, on that cover she sort of looks like the star in a modern reboot of “Attack of the 50 foot woman”

    I’ve seen Bar Refaeli this year in Barcelona I can assure these pics have photoshop, Bar is not as thin as there and she has a huge bottom (at least wearing Jeans) nobody looked at her ’cause she is quite normal except when she is working obviuously she must have something like photogenic…

  • MMM


  • Leo

    Photoshopped into oblivion.

  • Kim

    yep, “oblivion” – same Word equaling any chance of LEO winning an Oscar this year!!! — Next!!

  • Mimi

    That’s wrong on so many levels….

  • Stacy

    like no one else gets photoshop right? Every mag does it.
    Plus its not in her hands, its in the editors so don’t bash her for it
    She looks pretty good, even when shes not photoshop. Unlike most ppl shes does cover herself w/make-up all the time. Keeps her skin good

  • SaraT


  • Lorelei

    Thanks JJared I bet this edition will sell a lot.

  • Villain


  • //\\

    the photos are great and the interview is cute and fun.
    i don’t understand why she has remained single.

  • LaCroix


  • creed

    She is dating shaun white.

  • Ava

    Photoshopped or not, ordinary looking or not, as a straight female, I chose Bar over kate upton anyday!

  • Geez

    Its kinda sad that after all her hype in the beginning as ‘the new Gisele’ her contemporary now is a newbie porn – model like Kate Upton.

  • Chico

    She is way better looking than what her ex-boyfriend is dating right now.

  • Danuuu

    @Geez: well they’re both swimsuit models from Sports Illustrated. Like Brooklyn Decker also.

  • nanette


  • mmm

    It doesnt feel real because it isnt…….that list is a derby for publicists, not a real judge of popularity or beauty.

    Bar does look good here, not a super toned body but OK. Face is pulled up/photoshopped to make it look interesting, they always try to pull her eyebrows up to make her look interesting.

  • shir

    she’s now following half of the usa swimming team on twitter. Not suprised!

  • Stunning

    Beautiful girl

  • Mary

    Dear Hatres, Bar has so much more for you to be mad at, just be patient.

  • butterface

    Great body!

    She should live in bikini’s. Oh wait, she does.

    Does not give good (model) face though. Plain/borderline pretty. Boys don’t care about that much tho.

  • guest

    She is not Israeli. Probably her parents fleed from Germany and leave in Israel. She has a full German punched face like every German model has. If you look German models they all look similar to her. Israelis are not blond. Its like Nigerians yould be naturally blond.

  • ri8now

    hmmmm thannxxx good piczzzz

  • OOO

    So hot :) photo shop, no photo shop, make up, no make up, so so hot -


    @guest: israeli’s are not blond? lol, from germany lol, idiot. she was born in israel, all her siblings were born in israel, both her parents born in israel, her grandparents some born in israel and other from Poland. Israel was only decalred a state from 1948 so it is normal for people great grandparents or grandparents to be from europe or russia etc…

  • Tom

    In real life she is even better looking stunning and thin. PERFECT WOMAN

  • Georges

    Her beauty and joyfulness drive many women into crazy jealousy.
    She is not only beautiful and sexy but also a nice girl. She suffers from jealousy in Israel and all over the world. Women can be so mean. Thank god I’m a guy. And thank you God for your wonderful creation Bar Refaeli

  • moe

    32 though 35 are the same person. You’d know her EXACT lineage how? Because you’re just someone random and a man. NOT.

    OK, first off, she dyes her hair. You can see the line. Also in her early pictures her hair was brown, not dark blond, brown. And before the plastic surgery not even cute. She’s Israeli, but the “blonde’ is from a bottle.

    As for jealousy, in Israel it more like plain old HATRED, for the draft dodging etc, the orthodox wanted some her more naked pictures off store fronts so they didnt have to see them.

    She looks like shit without makeup and like hell in person I’ve heard.
    As far as “boys not caring” no little boys just see a bikini being yanked down, gee has bar ever done THAT before? Women just see someone they dont like, and no amount of PR can change that…

    also the truly beautiful super models dont have to post constantly on Just Jared to make themselves look famous or write a check to Maxim magazine….you fool nobody

  • me

    F*ck her!
