Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli was voted the world’s most beautiful woman on the annual Maxim Hot 100 list.
It marked the first time that the international men’s magazine allowed readers to partake in the selection process for the list, which was announced May 21 by the magazine.
Other Jewish honorees include actresses Mila Kunis (No. 3), Lea Michele (14) and Scarlett Johanssen (17).
Refaeli, who made the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2009, has a starring role as a Mossad agent in “Kidon,” an upcoming French and Hebrew film about Israel’s alleged assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai.
The family of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, who was slain in a Dubai hotel in January 2010,
is trying to halt the film’s release. — jta
