Refaeli ‘gets sad’ to see skinny models
London: Actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s supermodel girlfriend Bar Refaeli has said that she feels sad to see skinny models walking the runways looking all shaky and hungry.
The Israeli beauty has been modelling since she was a child and landed her first major fashion campaign when she was just 15 years old.
However, the 25-year-old fears for the future of the modelling industry as young stars succumb to pressure to lose weight and slim down to frightening proportions.
"I get so sad when I see 15-year-old pale extremely skinny models at the agency looking all shaky and hungry... when will it end?!?!?" the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
Refaeli also condemns cosmetic surgery and urges fans to follow her example by living healthily instead.
"Seriously... Plastic surgery is not helping your impact on young women or your looks!... Some people are addicted to drugs and others addicted to alcohol. Me? I’m addicted to pomegranate juice," she added.
