Femme: Bar Refaeli
Bar Refaeli dated Leonardo DiCaprio at the peak of his bachelor powers. Not only that, they stayed together for over five years! It takes quite a magical woman to make an honest man of Leo and Refaeli is exactly that. She’s been on the cover of the 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue' and advertisement spreads all over the world. In 2012, she was #1 on the 'Maxim Magazine' Hot 100. Refaeli’s beauty is well documented over the past decade, but she is more than just a pretty face.
Born in Hod HaSharon, Israel, Refaeli began modeling as early as eight months old in commercials. She continued learning the craft through her teenage years until she took a three-year break when she had braces. As an adult, Refaeli has appeared in campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, Moet & Chandon, Chanel, and Ralph Lauren among many others. She began her ascent in 2007 when she was selected to appear in a photoshoot for the 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue' with rock band Aerosmith. Two years later, she graced the cover of that magazine and has grown as a supermodel ever since.
One of the most refreshing, human aspects of her life is her love of food. Refaeli’s favorite food to eat is a hamburger. While she enjoys a healthy diet, she doesn’t fight her cravings and occasionally allows herself to indulge in a messy dessert.
Aside from modeling, Refaeli has featured in television and film. Her first big break in film was a starring role in a thriller called 'Session'. She has made appearances as a judge on 'Germany’s Next Top Model' and several Israeli television shows since 2005, including her role as a host of 'X Factor-Israel'.
Refaeli is quite the businesswoman as well. She has an ownership stake in a designer glasses company called Carolina Lemke. In 2013, she created an iPad app, Mika Look, that allowed users to purchase clothes that models wear; unfortunately, the app was a brief success and no longer exists. She was also an investor in MyCheck, an online pay service like PayPal.
One of her passions is helping others through charitable influence. Refaeli led separate campaigns for plastic bag reduction and water conservation in her home country of Israel. She is also involved with equal rights and has publicly supported gay rights and civil marriages.
As a swimsuit model, Bar Refaeli has reached every goal one could possibly dream of. She achieved worldwide fame, featured in magazines and advertisements in numerous publications all over the planet. She uses her platform to help those in need and advocates for those people who need the assistance. Her diverse skill set has impacted people all over the world in addition to her glamorous photoshoots which inspire models to this day.
Why She’s Hot!
Refaeli has the blonde, California dream girl look we love. She is confident and has a bright smile that can make any man weak in the knees.
What Kind Of Man Does She Like?
In an interview with Hello Magazine, she said her ideal man is “someone who has family values, has a sense of humor, loves life, is intelligent, giving and understanding.” It appears she found all of that in Israeli businessman Adi Ezra, whom she married in 2015.

She avoided mandatory military service in Israel by marrying a close family friend and divorcing him shortly afterwards.
