While many ordinary people can only afford to insure their health, cars, homes, travel and sometimes their pets, it’s becoming common for celebrities to splash huge amounts of money in insuring their body parts. That’s not just because they have the cash to burn, but because they believe – to a certain degree – that they should protect what they perceive to be their money-making features.
Whether it’s about insuring their faces, legs, voices, smiles or bums, this is a trend that has been going on for close to a century. As bizarre as it may sound, celebrities have been insuring their various body parts for ridiculous amounts of money and show no signs of stopping any time soon. The amounts involved will certainly shock you, but even more shocking are the body parts.
