Bar Refaeli: 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

February 10th, 2009 // 237 Comments

That was fast. Bar Refaeli made the cover of the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue which hits newsstands today. The news was announced last night on Letterman, and word on the street is Leonardo DiCaprio was silently campaigning for Bar to get the coveted cover. Sometimes he just likes to remind the world he bangs hot women. To which I say, how many trees died making this issue, Mr. Environmentalist? I’m pretty sure the pages of SI aren’t made of love and pixie dust. – - Except maybe this one. Damn your infallible logic, DiCaprio!

    She can’t do any better than Leonardo DiCaprio, who is a diminutive troll. What else needs to be said about her.

    #44, you crack me up because I know that you can’t be serious with that kind of rhetoric. I love it when stupid people view everything as a vast conspiracy. I’m thinking that Obama went to school, studied hard, and made something of himself. I’m guessing that you didn’t go to school, joined the KKK and, as I noted above, you probably move heavy objects for a living. I would encourage you to finish high school and perhaps take some community college courses. At least you mightg be able to elevate yourself out of a heavy lifting job. Perhaps you should shoot as high as junkyeard guard or something.

    #40, considering that you probably ARE number #14, etc., having an argument with yourself, I’ll take your claims with a shot of vodka. Do you really think sock-puppetry is original?

    And thanks #47, it’s good to be loved.

    This chick should be the picture under wikipedia’s entry for ‘butterface/but-her-face’. fugly ass face, smokin’ body

    @25/26,

    While I find #14/23 to be offensive I also recognize freedom of speech. I find many things offensive, especially blasphemy but many don’t care so would it be removed? Not likely. So #25/26, think long and hard about some of the things others attack such as the obese or midgets. While most of the asshats here would be amused, there would obviously be for example, some little people that were offended. It’s a bit hypocritical to want something removed if you are are agreeing with or posting on subjects that are offensive to others. I don’t mean to pick on you as you may have a great deal of integrity. Just trying to make a point.

    Also, I agree with #28 regarding this girl.

    You can pretty much guarantee that racist diatribe against the president has attracted the attention of the FBI or Homeland Security – enjoy the watch list buddy, they’re watching you.

  9. I’d like to build an illegal settlement inside her territory

    and her left nostril is slightly more hairy than the right one…

    and whoever thinks that because he was born white, black, blue or purple is better than anybody else it is probably because he hasn t got any achievements or talents or anything to show. it makes me wonder if some us citizens are like the ones pictured in the movies: drunks, uneducated, with a beer in the one hand, a gun in the other, talking bigotry…

  11. Trini

    damn right #14 and #44 are the same person… what gave it away? the racist stupidity that you spew… I hope some ‘ape’ finds you and beats the ‘conservatism’ out of you!!!

  12. Manda

    #49 – hahaha too true.
    #38 – yes!!

  13. hill

    Best thing about foreign boob jobs: silicone is so much better than saline.

  14. #38 – Yea, I split my fucking sides laughing at your comment, ass jockey.

  15. Photoshop Police

    If your girlfriend tells you that she’s gonna be on the cover before it hits the newsstands, IT’S NOT FRIGGIN CAMPAIGNING! It’s a leak! Now go back to the studio and finish Titanic 3 – Deckchair’s Revenge!

  16. Nick L

    Great body. Face is average. I’ll still print and jerk to though.

  17. Gunther

    Superlative skin. Enough for at least two very fine lampshades.

  18. lizzy

    the suits are ugly, her face is meehh, not that great, but her body is really nice. the boobs are actually a tad too big for her tiny frame. they’re gonna sag sadly one day.

  19. Courtney

    faaaaat.

  20. charles ronsonman

    @ N**** President — don’t you have a cousin to be fucking somewhere?

    @ 15 — LOL! good job on your porn bailout video dude!

  21. I CALL PARIS A WHORE IN THE BODY OF THIS MESSAGE

    @ 25

    WHOA

    Freedom of speech means does include that. People have a right to be racist. They’re just not allowed to rob other people of their rights due to racism.

  22. Sheva

    Well if it’s good enough for Leo. Photos look odd. I think she looked better when there was no breast enhancements. These don’t look natural.

    She seems to have added those and weight in a couple of shots. It strikes as odd like the pictures were not taken around the same time.

    Well Leo has pull and now Gisele is going to drive Tom Brady nuts with her rants.

  23. seriously?

    God help us all if those are considered saggy boobs or bags under the eyes.

    I’d kill to look like her (actually kill). Saying she’s unattractive in any way shape or form is just ludicrous.

  24. Anexio

    Hey, number 30, someguy….

    “Now I am all for free speech”

    No you’re not. If you were for free speech you wouldn’t be asking to have someone censured. If you don’t agree with someone then argue your point, don’t try to shut them up simply because you find them offensive.

    If fishstick doesnt like then he can take it off and he doesnt need a reason, it’s his forum. You on the other hand, can go start your own forum and run it anyway you want.

    Better yet, don’t come back here.

  25. rumble grumble gurgle roar

    well, Bar certainly is no Courtney Love. Thank God!

  26. man i’d really really like to see you ugly bitches or you ugly girlfriends!!!

  27. jaime

    ALTERNATIVE TITLE:
    “I like sports now”

  28. Courtyardpigeon

    Oh……………my……………………………………………..goodness.

  29. ugh

    wow, there goes my self esteem. i think i’m doing pretty well and then i remember there are girls like that running around in the world. ow ow ow.

  30. greg

    Nice one, 74! But I really don’t think free speech applies when the current topic is actually the girl in the photo, or anything, ANYTHING related to the topic at hand, instead of a series of racist remarks that have NOTHING to do with the topic. So of course I would like to see the remarks removed- THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TOPIC. That definition of freedom of speech seems mindless.

    On the other hand, it IS someone else’s site. Totally their descision. So you are right there.

    55, I do often think long and hard about such issues. It’s just that this one crossed a personal line for me, hence a comment. The ‘Post A Comment’ guide above does say to keep the comments ‘relevant to the post’. While calling the girl in the photo a butterface is rude, it’s totally in context. But the other posts?

    But again, It’s not my site.

  31. e-rock

    SHE IS GORGEOUS!!!!! These people on here who say otherwise crack me the hell up. If she jumped in your bed, I promise you would be BEGGING for it.
    On that note, as a woman with silicone breast implants, those are definitely not real, they are just really, really, really good ones. They sag because they are so big, a liiiiittle to big, but whatever she is phenomenal!!!
    GO LEO!!!! And stop hating on Leo, and blacks for that matter, what the hell is wrong with you people! karma man, what goes around comes around. they are just making up for their little dicks. hahahaha.
    anyway, this chick deserves the cover, and anyone who says “butterface” probably needs to take a good look in the mirror. I WOULD LOVE TO LOOK LIKE HER!!!!!! Props Bar, you deserve it. ;o)

  32. someguy

    74-That’s all I was saying. Fish should remove it.

    There is plenty of stuff left here to offend me, and I don’t think those should be removed. The comment in question wasn’t really offensive. It was so far gone that it just didn’t make any sense.

    Maybe I should have ignored it and commented on the boobies. They are nice.

  33. LamKram

    It’s interesting how our society’s standards have changed. If she was a little more, um, “natural”, there would be all sorts of hair sticking out, and this photo would be considered obscene and couldn’t be shown on the cover of SI (or inside, for that matter). But because she is brazilian waxed, its perfectly OK to show the skin that was underneath the hair that isn’t there anymore.

    I’m so used to seeing these completely waxed girls, that a seeing a little pubic hair seems sexier. Almost taboo. Am I alone in that?

  34. greg

    Okay, so I normally just look at the articles in Geekologie, and for the most part skip the comments. This article, for some bizarre reason, I decided to read the comments- and naturally was shocked.

    But

    Having just looked at a few of the other comment sections on here, I see now that it really IS about saying pretty much whatever you want to say, relevant or not. So I apologise for my previous statements. I don’ care anymore. Just thought I’d get that out there, before someone tried to repress my opinions with a vicious and offensive load of free speech.

    I really do think she’s beautiful, though.

  35. harrydonsweorth

    if you’re born with small boobs, as most white women and flat 99% east asian women are, deal with it! don’t get this cantaloupes plastered on your chest. Yeah, otherwise her face is very pretty as is her body, but nothing new. very cookie cutterish.

  36. she’s pretty, but lacks something. that pulling the bikini down thing, how original. i’m disappointed in sports illustrated.

  37. Deacon Jones

    @40
    Nah, that’s how the cops describe their suspects when off camera.

    But what about this PIECE OF ASS FELLAS????
    Beautiful, beautiful tits on that thing. Totally natural as well, you can always tell by the side boobage. Good work women’s lib front, keep it up.

  38. someguy

    Greg- I think you summed up my thoughts better than I did. This SI post is not about politics at all. That post by #14 et al was just so far off base that I thought Fish should remove it. Maybe move it to the one about Sarah Palin’s boots. Or the dead turkey.

  39. Jo

    She’s very pretty, but what’s with the tan lines? Rather ruins the sexy poses, when she has such clear bikini outlines.

  40. Musclechicken

    Dear, dear me… would you just look at those jahoobies! This girl is hot!
    @83 couldnt agree more, brother… a little landing strip is damn sexy1

  41. Musclechicken

    Dear, dear me… would you just look at those jahoobies! This girl is hot!
    @83 couldnt agree more, brother… a little landing strip is damn sexy!

  42. Truth

    This is “curves.”

    Jessica Simpson = lumps and bulges.

    The difference is crystal clear.

  43. Musclechicken

    Apologies for the double-post…

  44. testing

    She just isn’t that pretty. Compared to Marissa Miller, Adriana Lima and the other Victoria Secret chicks or past swimsuit issue girls like Heidi, Elle McPherson and Rebecca Romajn this girl doesn’t cut it.

  45. me

    She ordinary!

  46. Fat Ugly Old American Woman

    I have to admit she looks great. The one thing I could do without is the peek-a-boo look at her shaved pubes. Trimming it is one thing, but that completely hairless look is kind of creepy.

  47. Blah

    She’s not very pretty but she has a fantastic body; very womanly and natural looking. Not some stupid toothpick I could clean my teeth with.

  48. Deacon Jones

    @94 Wrong.

    I’ll admit to Marissa Miller.

    But I guarantee I could walk around for 5 minutes in South Beach and hand pick 5 girls off the beach that would blow the rest of that VS crew away.

  49. So Right

    Sorry, but she DOES NOT deserve the cover. Nice body and all, but not great face. I mean there are a million others more beautiful and most are brunettes. Sorry. Leo must have had a hand in this one

  50. Just sayin

    Leo definitly upgraded.. she doesn’t have Giselle’s man-face and has a great body
