Bar Refaeli is the new 'Sports Illustrated' swimsuit issue cover model



Tbdbarrafaeli021109 Yeah, that's pretty much all there is to say. Except that Bar Refaeli is 23 and Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend. And that she told Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira and Al Roker on the Today show that she didn't even know she was the cover girl for the 46th edition of the swimwear special until she saw it.

"My agency said I had an audition at the office," the Israeli said. "And then they opened the door slowly, slowly, and they had the image of the cover like really big and there were cameras all over. It was like five minutes where I couldn't speak."

The creative directors for Sports Illustrated pored over 90,000 photos to pic this one. There are tougher jobs to have out there.
