Bar To The Super Bowl

Who says an Israeli will never make it to the Super Bowl (or the NFL, for that matter)?
Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli is set to appear in the notoriously racy Super Bowl ad for
GoDaddy.com. Refaeli will join race car driver Danica Patrick.

Those hoping to see the Israeli hottie wearing very little may be disappointed, however. Go Daddy announced that the 30-second spot will feature Refaeli in either a cocktail dress or something very formal.

“The new sexy at Go Daddy is all about the customer,” Barb Rechterman, the company’s chief marketing officer, told USA Today. You might say we’ve come up in the world.”

Refaeli, the cover model for the 2009 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, will get some competition from the 2012 cover model, Kate Upton, who will star in a Mercedes-Benz ad.

Oh, there’s a football game in there somewhere.

Portman Is Hollywood’s Most Bankable

Natalie Portman is the queen of bank, according to Forbes, which reported that the star gives the best bang for the buck in box-office returns. The acclaimed Jewish actress cashed in with her performance in Darren Aronofsky’s 2010 Oscar-winning thriller “Black Swan,” in which she played a deranged ballerina. The film, which was made for just $13 million, grossed $329 million at the box office. Forbes determined its choices on the most bankable list based on the last three films of each actor, comparing the salary paid to the star with box-office results and the actual cost of the film.
