Tall, cool drink of water Bar Refaeli was born in Israel on June 4, 1985. The daughter of successful Israeli model Tzipi Levine, Bar began modeling as a baby but had to stop as a teenager thanks to a severe case of brace face. But as soon as the orthodontia came off Bar was back in the game, and she went on to smashing skinternational success as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. Bar’s been doing double duty as a TV hostess since 2005, when she hosted the Israeli TV series Pick Up. Since then, she appeared on Germany’s Next Top Model and a 2009 revival of MTV’s House of Style. Bar’s perhaps best known as the longtime gal pal of Leonardo DiCaprio, though she makes her claim on the silver screen in the Israeli film Session (2010), where she plays a psychiatric patient manipulated by an unscrupulous therapist. This blue-eyed beauty is one Bar we’re always willing to clear!
