Insurance is indeed a good thing in case the inevitable happens. Many people take in all sorts of insurances like life insurances, education insurance and auto insurances in case something happens to their cars or the passengers involved, they are covered. Taking auto insurance is something that’s abiding by law in most countries especially for commercial drivers.
But our attention today is to have a look at the world’s most expensive legs. Some celebrities have their legs insured that runs into millions of dollars. We have had several instances of some celebrities insuring some weird places of their bodies and it sometimes comes as a shock to many. Like Kylie Minogue; the Australian singer insuring her b.utt for more than 3 million pounds. She isn’t the only celebrity to have her b.utts insured, our very own Jennifer Lopez for instance has her butt insured for more than 10 million pounds. It makes one wonder why will anyone do that?
America Ferrera for instance has her smile insured for close to 7 million pounds. Yes, you read it right, the American actress has her smile insured against any inevitables in case the worst happens and she can’t smile again.
Miley Cyrus also for instance has her tongue insured a little over a million dollars. Asked why she has her tongue insured instead of her voice since she is a singer, this was what she had to say; “I didn’t know what to do with my face, so I stuck my tongue out, and it became a rebellious, punk rock thing.”
It appears taking insurance isn’t something for only female celebrities. There are male celebrities who have taken in some weird insurance policies as well.
Fernando Alonso who is a Formula One Driver has his thumb insured for a reported fee of 9 million pounds. And one Merv Hughes, a former cricketer has his moustache insured as well for close to $370,000.
Now let shift our attention to the most expensive legs in the world when it comes to insurance.
BETTY GRABLE, $1 MILLION
Betty is the first celebrity in the world to have had her legs insured. The American actress had her 42 films during the 1930s and 1940s grossed more than $100 million; for 10 consecutive years. While her talent was certainly there, it was her legs that drove people to the box office and made her the highest-paid celebrity between 1943 and 1951.
During World War II, this leggy picture of Grable was the most popular among soldiers, making her the number-one pin-up girl of the era. In 1943, an impression of her leg had been made in the cement in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater and later that year her legs were dubbed a “major Hollywood landmark” by LIFE magazine.
At the end, she had her legs insured for $1 million.
