Bar Refaeli voted the hottest on Maxim Hot 100


NEW YORK (JTA) — Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli was voted the world’s most beautiful woman on the annual Maxim Hot 100 list.

It marked the first time that the international men’s magazine allowed readers to partake in the selection process for the list, which was announced Monday by the magazine. Refaeli, who turns 27 on June 4, beat out "Daily Show" Asian correspondent Olivia Munn.

Other Jewish honorees include actresses Mila Kunis (No. 3), Lea Michele (14) and Scarlett Johanssen (17).

Refaeli, who made the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2009, has a starring role in "Kidon," an upcoming French and Hebrew film about Israel’s alleged assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai.

Maxim launched the Hot 100 list in 2000.
