Strange Celebrity Insurance Policies are just about insuring specialized cars, homes, private planes which the average insurance company has to cover. But the actors, actresses and sports heroes start to get really specific with their coverage. You will not believe that they are specific down to the finger in fact.
Here are top 10 Strange Celebrity Insurance Policies You Had No Clue About.
1. Mariah Carey’s Legs For $1 Billion
After signing a deal with Gillette, the singer took out $1 billion in coverage on her legs. Her people reported that it was necessary because she was about to start another big tour, and her popularity made that investment necessary.
2. David Beckham’s Whole Body For $195 Million
In 2004, Beckham was billed as the highest paid player in history, between salary and endorsement deals. Maybe that’s why the internationally-renowned footballer took out the largest personal insurance policy in sports history, namely $195 million, on his own body. It insured against injury, illness, and disfigurement.
3. Jennifer Lopez’s Butt For $27 Million
Jennifer Lopez’s singing and acting career has been immeasurably helped along by a famous rear end. How much is a golden booty worth these days? Apparently, around $27 million.
4. Heidi Klum’s Legs For $2 Million
Razor brand Braun reportedly took out a policy for her toned legs worth $1.6 million (Not close to Mariah Carey’s legs). But that’s not the strangest tidbit. One of her legs is insured for $200,000 more than the other, because of a small scar on the left.
5. Troy Polamalu’s Hair For $1 Million
Shampoo maker Proctor & Gamble insured this Steeler’s curly Samoan locks for $1 million, after he signed an endorsement deal with Head and Shoulders. He hasn’t cut his hair in over ten years, and with a price tag like that, he probably won’t go near a barber anytime soon.
6. America Ferrera’s Smile For $10 Million
Aquafresh saw a lot of potential in America Ferrera’s gleaming teeth. They expected to make so much profit from her celebrity endorsement that they insured her smile for $10 million.
7. Keith Richards’ Middle Finger For $1.6 Million
Not the whole hand, but a finger that is only useful to put up in the air and say ‘off’ was insured for $1.6 million. That’s what happens when you’re a guitar genius.
8. Dolly Parton’s Breasts For $3.8 Million
Because the singer is best known for her incurable bounce. There might be a bit of sticker shock though, when you read the price tag: $3.8 million for the pair.
9. Gene Simmons’s Tongue For Around $1 Million
This long tongue surely deserve this amount. Simmons’s tongue has got the healthiest color and it suits the make up he wears on his face. But insuring it for a million dollars is still very, very insane.
10. Rich Hall’s Sense Of Humor For $1.5 Million
This is smarter rather than strange. If you cannot make people laugh anymore. you still get 1.6 million dollars for that.
