Bar Refaeli and Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo DiCaprio & Bar Refaeli, originally uploaded by Ubiklo.

Israeli model Bar Refaeli, 24, is also an actress. A controversy arose in 2007 when it was reported that Refaeli had married a family acquaintance and divorced him soon after to avoid Israeli military service, which is mandatory but subject to certain exemptions. In January 2010 Refaeli was again in the news headlines when an Israeli army general discovered that she had applied to be registered as a non-Israeli in order to pay less tax. Also, her relationship with American actor Leonardo DiCaprio caused a nationalist Israeli organization to send her a letter in which she was asked ‘for the sake of future generations of Jews, not to marry a non-Jew.’ According to reports, her relationship with DiCaprio ended in June 2009, but media reports indicate that as of early 2010 their romance may have been resumed.
