Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli plays Einav Schwartz, an “Israeli temptress” in the upcoming film Kidon, which means spear in Hebrew, and is based on the 2010 assassination of a Hamas operative in Dubai. Haaretz has the scoop:

Refaeli, best known for gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition and being the former longtime girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, has made the crossover from modeling to acting before. She starred in the 2011 thriller “Session” and appeared in the Israeli TV series “Pick Up.”

But she said “Kidon” is giving her a taste of a job she really wants: working as an agent for Israel’s notorious spy agency.

“I would love to be in the Mossad and maybe I am. Who knows? I think that being a famous model is the best cover,” Refaeli told reporters.
