Bar Refaeli has confident alter ego

The Israeli model has topped Maxim’s Hot 100 list and is amazed so many people think she’s sexy. The 26-year-old doesn’t view herself that way, explaining she is actually very nervous. Bar uses an alter ego to help her look confident when working.

“It’s a really big compliment, like an alter ego kind of thing… I feel I’m sexy when I need to be in front of the camera. I kind of play with it, and I’m very, very confident. But on an everyday basis, I don’t think I’m that sexy at all,” she told The Cut.

“I amp myself up by being in front of the camera. If I’m on a stage in front of a lot of people, I will shake, and I won’t feel comfortable at all. But I was born with this confidence in front of the camera. I don’t know how to explain it, but when you put a camera in front of me, I feel like I can let loose and act or move in a way that I’m kind of embarrassed to do around my friends or other people.”

Bar has her own underwear line called Under.Me which she created after struggling to find the simple lingerie designs she craved.

She describes it as “basics”, such as T-shirts, tank tops and leggings. The model is now considering branching out into another clothing area which can be tricky for people to get right.

“We’re constantly improving the fabric and the style and the fit. So, yes, we’re going to expand the line a bit, but we’re going keep this company basic. I have thought about doing it for jeans. I just need a good jean company to do the jean that’s hard to find,” she said.
