Bar Refaeli Biography and Pictures
Bar Refaeli was born on June four, 1985, inside a rural area of Israel. She grew up on a horse ranch, but her countryside origins never inhibited her ambitions. She started modeling before she could even walk and talk. At 8 months old, Bar Refaeli had been doing commercials.
After this early career start, Refaeli had to undergo that traumatic experience that each child fears: getting braces. Obviously, getting braces quickly derailed her modeling profession. So, for more than three years, Bar Refaeli resorted returning to her normal life — a life devoid of modelling.
Once the braces came off in 1997, however, Bar Refaeli wasted virtually no time getting right back into the business. İn the tender age of 11, she burst back onto the modeling scene and has been there since. The woman then appeared in numerous advertisements and infomercials in Israel.
