Bar Rafaeli was voted the hottest celebrity on Maxim’s Hot 100 List which will be published at the end of this month, says the Hollywood Gossip. The model was flattered to hear that she was at the top of the chart considering that there were many other beautiful women in the list.
There was a very strong competition among celebrities who took part at this year’s edition of Maxim’s Hot 100 List. Despite this, readers did a very good job at choosing the sexiest woman in fashion or entertainment industry. The majority of them voted for Bar Rafaeli, so the Israeli model was named the hottest woman of the year 2012.
The 27-year-old actress declared in an interview for Maxim that she was honored to be considered the sexiest woman out of the 100 personalities included in the list. The title was all the more flattering as there were many other beautiful women on the last 10 positions. The second place was occupied by comedian Olivia Munn, whereas Mila Kunis, Katy Perry and Olivia Wilde received the third, the fourth and the fifth place, respectively.
This edition of Maxim’s Hot 100 List was one of a kind due to some of the persons that featured in the top. At Nr. 92 was Amanda Knox, the young woman who was convicted in Italy because she was said to have murdered her Italian colleague. Lois Griffin, the animated character from the “Family Guy” was also voted as one of the hottest celebrities, thus managing to occupy the 85th place. Stephen Colbert made it to Nr. 69, but he was the first man to feature in Maxim’s famous list of hotties.
Moving back to the winner of this year’s classification, we tried to figure out the asset that helped distinguish Rafaeli from Mila Kunis or Olivia Wilde. We think the answer could be traced back to one of her interviews in 2010. The model told reporters at the V magazine that people think she is sexy because she has “boobs”.
Rafaeli featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2009. However, she is particularly known for her relationship with Leonardo DiCario. The two started dating in 2006, but went through a series of separations and reconciliations until they parted ways for good in 2011.
