Draft-dodging Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, said she doesn’t feel any remorse about evading military service.
“I don’t regret not having been drafted into the army, because I made out big,” Refaeli told the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot. “Why is it good to die for one’s country?” she asked. “Isn’t it better to live in New York?” The 22-year-old also said that she won’t be touring the Holy Land with any of her A-List Hollywood actor friends anytime soon.
Apparently she was miffed that during a recent visit she and DiCaprio made to Jerusalem, there was a conflict between their bodyguards and Israeli photographers, which led to a tussle. “I won’t bring anyone famous to Israel, because there is a chutzpah here that you won’t see anywhere else,” she said.
