Bare Bar But Bar?

Bar Rafaeli escaped IDF military service by marrying a much older man when she was a teenager.

The Israel Defense Forces human resources chief two years ago called for a boycott of products advertised by the model when he was asked why the army did not act against her since she married under false pretenses so she could evade military service. He elaborated that, according to law, he could not act against Rafaeli. "She went and married a 37-year-old guy, so what can I do?" he said. "At the end of the day," according to Zamir, "she is the one who has to look at herself in the mirror. We are a society that has an army, and Bar Rafaeli doesn't have to participate in ads for Fox [clothing] - and if she advertises Fox then you shouldn't buy their products."

And two years earlier, the IDF was thinking of 'conscripting' her for PR purposes.  And from her recent shoots, it is obvious she has no idea what a soldier looks like:


So, should a bare Bar be barred?

Angelina Jolie, on the other hand, makes it seem easy:
