10 of the Most Expensively Insured Celebrity Body Parts

Celebrities generally aren’t known for being careful with their money,
but some major stars have realised the value of taking out an insurance
policy. We take a look at the 10 most expensively insured celebrity body
parts.



Tom Jones - Chest Hair - $7 million






Imagine that you work for an insurance company, most of your friends
probably don’t want you talking to them about insurance, but when a
request to insure the chest hair of Tom Jones arrives on your desk –
everyone you know will want to hear about that. Underwriter John Thomas
said that the request was definitely amongst the most odd insurance
requests that he’s ever had to deal with. He said, “Admittedly, this is
one of the most obscure requests I’ve had but I still came up with a
wording that addressed the need,”



America Ferrera – Teeth ($10 million)






Is any smile worth $10 million? The star of Ugly Betty had her teeth
insured for $10m by Aquafresh White Trays, who she was representing.
Ferrera said, “It’s very flattering to have my smile insured for $10
million, it’s not something that I ever imagined happening.”



Keith Richards – Index Finger ($1.6 million )






Hellraiser, Keith Richards had his index finger insured for $1.6
million. The fact that the Rolling Stones star was even conscious enough
to put his name on the contract is quite surprising.



David Beckham – Feet and Legs – ($70 million)






Known for his free kicks and pinpoint passing -the poster boy for soccer
in the USA insured his feet and legs for $70 million. With his planned
move to AC Milan in the summer of 2009 – Beckham will need to keep up
his insurance policy if he is to avoid anything happening to his legs
when he comes up against some of the most cynical defenders in the
world.



Mariah Carey - Legs - $ 1 Billion






Yep, you read that right, pop star Mariah Carey had her legs insured for
$1 Billion after agreeing to front Gillette’s “”Legs Of A Goddess”
advertisement campaign. Surprisingly, her legs were insured for more
than David Beckham who’s legs and feet were only worth a paltry $70
million.



Bruce Springsteen - Voice - $6 million






Music legend Bruce Springsteen had his voice cords insured for a cool $6
million. Springsteen’s voice was insured for $5m for Marlene
Dietrich’s.



David Lee Roth - Sperm - $1 million






You have to really go some distance to out-weird Tom Jones – but David
Lee Roth somehow managed it when he insured his sperm for $1 million.
The bizarre insurance policy was to be paid out if David Lee Roth
managed to make one of his groupies pregnant.



Merv Hughes – Moustache - $317,000






The Australian cricket legend has one of the most memorable moustaches
in sport. Merv insured his legendary moustache. The spectacular
moustache was insured for over a quarter of million dollars.



Michael Flatley – Feet- $45 million






The star of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, had his feet insured for
$45 million. According to his official website, “Michael was recognized
in the Guinness Book of World Records … for having the highest insurance
premium placed on a dancer’s legs at $40,000,000. “



Dolly Parton – Breasts - $600,000






Country singing legend, Dolly Parton had her “assets” insured for the
considerable sum of $600,000. Dolly Parton once said onstage “it takes a
lot of money to make me look this cheap”. If her insurance policy is
anything then she’s not cheap at all
