Animalistic: Bar Refaeli, in a tiny leopard print bikini, poses alongside Vinny Guadagino in the shoot for Interview magazine
Bar Refaeli is no stranger to posing with muscly models.
But the Israeli beauty was in for a shock when she met her co-stars on a recent photo shoot for Interview magazine.
As the group were none other than the 'stars' of latest MTV reality TV sensation Jersey Shore.
While the men - known as Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Paul 'DJ Pauly D' DelVecchio - wore their best designer clothes for the shoot, they couldn't compare with 24-year-old Bar's sizzling outfits.
Wearing a series of costumes which left little to the imagination, including a leopard print bikini, a black basque and hotpants and a cutaway swimsuit, Bar, the ex-girlfriend of Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, sizzled as she posed with the group.
The men have quickly gone from relative unknowns to household names in the U.S., where their TV show has become one of the most popular reality shows of the moment.

But the Jersey boys insist that far from being scared of their sudden fame, they are making the most of their popularity.
The Situation said: 'Oh, man, it’s just unbelievable. Everywhere I go, there’s just mass amounts of people. There’s people showing up at airports, wanting autographs, girls, it’s insane. It’s like The Beatles, man.
'I’ve always gotten female attention. Now the only way I can describe it is that it’s like The Beatles. At a club appearance, it’s insane that people are chasing me and fighting bodyguards, and girls are crying and screaming.
'People are always asking for a picture. I never refuse a picture. I shake hands; I kiss every cheek. I love all my fans. I love every minute. I give everybody a chance

While all the boys loved shooting alongside Bar, there was one who felt more of a connection with the stunning model.
Vinny Guadagnino is such a huge fan of Bar's ex-boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio that he took the opportunity to quiz her about her former relationship.
When asked if Bar told the boys if she had watched their programme, Vinny said: 'She’s probably watched the show a few times. Didn’t seem too hung up on it.Leo [DiCaprio] is more, actually.
'He said, “I can tell you’re a good Italian kid, from a good family." '
And Vinny also admitted he wants to follow in DiCaprio's footsteps when Jersey Shore ends.
He told Interview magazine: 'I could see myself, not now because he plays crazy roles, but if I ever got to that level, I’d like to play the roles he plays. He handles everything with such poise.
'He’s very low-key, and I’m the same kind of way. When you see me in a club, you don’t see me going crazy; you see me with a hat and a hood on, laying back. What would Leo do? What would Leo do? I keep reciting that in my head.'
