Bar Refaeli appears to have made amends with Israel in the 2008 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

The supermodel and ex-arm candy of Leonardo DiCaprio was reunited with her native soil, where she was photographed in the lewd at Caesarea and the Dead Sea for a 50-image online gallery.

The feisty femme made headlines recently for suing Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot for publishing an interview in which she declared her pride at dodging the draft, “I don’t regret not enlisting because it paid off big time…Why is it good to die for our country? What, isn’t it better to live in New York?”

The statement strikes as a bit odd considering she absconded from Israel not for New York, but for Los Angeles, where she says she is quite happy.

In a Q&A with SI, she reveals what she thinks is sexy, who she was in a past life and what she’d do with a million dollars:

The one thing I’m absolutely obsessed with lately is: Gadgets! New cell phones; I walk around with three phones because I have all the new ones, and I can’t choose which I prefer.

On a quiet, rainy day I usually: Stay in bed and watch movies. I don’t like the winter because I don’t like staying in. I’m not at my best during the winter.

The sexiest thing a man has ever done for me is: I don’t think that when men try to do something sexy, it’s sexy! I think sexy is when you don’t try!

And the sexiest thing I’ve ever done for a man is: The same, when girls try to be sexy it’s not sexy to me. I feel that a girl is the most sexy when she is confident with herself. So if I want to be sexy I try to show confidence.

In a past life I was: I would like to think that I was someone who changed the world and had a big impact on humanity. I really don’t believe in a past life or future life. I believe in what I see, feel, do ... here and now and I try to enjoy every minute of it.

If I had to spend $1 million right now, I would: It depends. If I have enough I will give it to charity. Otherwise I would invest it in real estate.

The one place I’ve seen that I’ll never forget is: Cuba. The people there and how happy they are. They were playing music and dancing in the streets. Those moments will stay in my head for years. I realized there and then that simplicity is the best way to be.

I won’t date a man if he: Is married! Also, if it takes him longer to get ready than me.

My favorite time to be naked is: In the shower.

When it comes to nudity, most people don’t know that I: Think it is unnecessary within my industry.

If I could be anything but a model, I would be: Right now, it would be a student.

If I could be anywhere else in the world right now, I would be: I don’t want to be anywhere else. I am in L.A. right now and I love it!

To impress a cute man at a bar, I would: Ignore him.

Where’s your hometown?: Hod Hasharon, Israel

Where’s the one place you have to go when you’re in your hometown?: The falafel place! It’s a small tiny room where they make the best falafel in the world!
