Celebrities insurance for different parts of their bodies has been around since Betty Grable famously insured her legs decades ago for $1 million. Today some celebrities consider that nothing, as in one case a female celebrity has insured her legs for an extraordinary $1 billion: Mariah Carey.
Other major celebrities with big policies include dancer Michael Flatley, who has his feet insured for $39 million, and David Beckham, who has insured his legs for $70 million. In the case of these two guys it's understandable.
Some other body parts of things insured by celebrities include taste buds, breasts, nose, chest hair, smiles, voice, sperm, mustache and hands.
Tom Jones insured his chest hair for $7 million, while Dolly Parton's boobs are insured for $600,000. With Dolly I think we all believe she got a great deal.
Who insured his sperm? None other than David Lee Roth, in case a paternity suit was ever filed against him.
