Bar Refaeli: Break From Leo Was Good for Me

Bar Refaeli may just be the luckiest woman in the world. Not only does she have a booming modeling career and a great bod, she has Leonardo DiCaprio as her man!

In the issue of L'Isha magazine, Bar admits that her half-year breakup with Leo was really rough, but it was a great learning experience. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On their six-month break:
"It was a half year for which I am very grateful. I needed it. I came to understand a lot of things about myself. I worked on myself [and] I grew up. I didn't know what 'alone' was like. Today I know that a relationship can work only if you know you can be alone and you are not afraid. Today I’m not afraid of being alone."

On the engagement rumors:
"I'm not thinking about getting married. I'm still young, not yet 25."

On no PDAs at basketball games:
"No one needs to know how we kiss."

On not attending red carpet events with Leo: "I am there for him and I am at all the events. . . I just don't walk in hand-in-hand with him. I don't see any reason. I don't need to strike poses with him in front of the cameras."
