Earlier this week, Bar Refaeli was revealed at the #1 top pick by Maxim readers for their annual “Hot List,” and the responses from you were mixed. A lot of you thought Bar was the obvious choice, and others admitted to not seeing anything special about her brand of beauty. Regardless of the general consensus, Bar has appeared on “Conan” to discuss her spot on the Maxim list, and she reveals that dudes never, ever hit on her. This is the classic myth of a woman who’s so beautiful and men who are so intimidated by said beauty that they’d never dare approach her for fear of getting mercilessly shot down like an innocent bystander in a John Woo film. Now if Samantha Brick had anything to say about it, then hot women get hit on all the time, but most of us realize that Samantha Brick isn’t as pretty as she believes herself to be. Anyway, back to the dateless plight of Bar Refaeli:
It’s so hard being beautiful, isn’t it?
During an appearance on Conan Tuesday, 26-year-old supermodel Bar Refaeli explained why she’s been unlucky in love since splitting with Leonardo DiCaprio in May 2011. (The two began dating in the spring of 2006 and split for six months in 2009; they rekindled their romance the following year.)
“Let’s put it out there: no one hits on me. No one flirts with me. It’s very sad, actually,” Refaeli told host Conan O’Brien, 49. “A guy who comes up to me [directly] works. I hope that will happen every now and again.”
As for what Refaeli looks for in a guy? “There’s the obvious things: I want him to be sweet and kind with good values and morals. But the first thing I notice is his teeth. I have a fetish. He has to have a great smile and really white, bright teeth.”
Refaeli, who recently topped Maxim’s Hot 100 List, also revealed that she’s “not that confident” when it comes to posing nude.
“I actually had a thin line of underwear that they airbrushed out,” she said of the magazine’s racy pictorial. “When the model doesn’t agree to appear completely naked, then you have to use the magic of computers.”

I can sort of empathize with Bar’s frustration at not being able to get dates because I think her status (even more than her beauty) causes men to back away for fear of looking like idiots. I mean, what civilian guy would be silly enough to randomly hit on a supermodel? Basically, if Bar wants to get any action, she’s probably going to have to make the first move. I’m sure she’ll manage just fine.
Here’s the Maxim photo (that Bar discusses in the interview) for which a very “lucky nerd” (according to Conan) has airbrushed out her underwear in favor of a suggestive tanline. Nice work.
