What part of your body would you say is the most valuable? For Taylor Swift the answer is apparently her legs, which she has reportedly insured for a cool sh3.6 billion.
According to the National Enquirer, the singer and her team have taken the precaution of insuring her pins ahead of her world tour, which kicks off in May. The star is said to be “embarrassed” by the large sum, but she is far from alone in erring on the side of caution when it comes to insuring body parts. Here are a few famous attributes in the history of show business:
1. Pearly whites
“Ugly Betty” actress America Ferrara, is, of course, anything but unattractive — as demonstrated by her lovely smile. The star’s partner AquaFresh clearly agrees, having insured it for $10 million back in 2007.
Julia Roberts is another actress known for her gleaming grin, which she has allegedly insured to the tune of $30 million.
Dolly Parton paid a fortune for her breasts, so it was only natural that the star would insure them — for $600,000.
The Queen of Pop herself, Madonna, is reported to have protected her breasts for $2 million.
J-Lo started it when she reportedly secured a huge insurance policy (which reports put at varying amounts between $27 million and $300 million) against her booty — arguably the singer’s most famous asset.
Kylie Minogue is also in this camp, having allegedly insured her glutes for $5 million.
Leggy stars eager to protect their pins have included Mariah Carey, who reportedly once took out a whopping $1 billion policy when she was the face of Gillette.
Football player Cristiano Ronaldo took out a $144 million policy for his star shins, although we can see the logic in this.
Similarly, David Beckham once insured his legs for $70 million.
