Anytime Bar Refaeli poses topless it’s going to attract a lot of attention. Put her in a military helmet and all hell breaks loose.
Refaeli went topless for the May issue of GQ Italia covering her breasts with her right hand. Glance inside and you’ll find her topless again, but this time in tiny army shorts and an ammunition belt.
If she were just a regular model, everyone would think its hot, but because she managed to avoid being drafted in the Israel Army, it’s kind of a big deal.
According to NY Daily News, Bar avoided the draft by marrying an acquaintance and though they later divorced, she had no regrets about her choice.
“I don't regret not enlisting, because it paid off big time," she said. "That's just the way it is, celebrities have other needs. I hope my case has influenced the army."
"Why is it good to die for our country? What, isn't it better to live in New York? Why should 18-year-old kids have to die?" she reportedly asked. "It's dumb that people have to die so that I can live in Israel."
But now, years later, she said she’s proud of her country and encourages enlistment. Can you say damage control? She tells the magazine she wishes the country "peace and prosperity."
But this is only after protests against her threatened her contract with Fox, an Israeli fashion company.
