Leonardo DiCaprio’s supermodel girlfriend Bar Refaeli has spoken out about the worrying trend of super-skinny models walking the runways – insisting she “gets so sad” when she sees girls looking “all shaky and hungry”.

The Israeli beauty has been modeling since she was a child and landed her first major fashion campaign when she was just 15 years old.

But the 25 year old fears for the future of the modeling industry as young stars succumb to pressure to lose weight and slim down to frightening proportions.

In a post on her page, she writes, “I get so sad when I see 15-year-old pale extremely skinny models at the agency looking all shaky and hungry… when will it end?!?!?”

Refaeli also condemns cosmetic surgery and urges fans to follow her example by living healthily instead.

She adds, “Seriously… Plastic surgery is not helping your impact on young women or your looks!… Some people are addicted to drugs and others addicted to alcohol. Me? I’m addicted to pomegranate juice.”
