List Rules Vote up the body part most worthy of being insured and protected

Being a celebrity means having to do a lot of ridiculous stuff in order to enjoy your wonderful lifestyle. One of the most ridiculous parts of the Hollywood star machine is the idea that you might need to take out insurance on the body part (or parts) that make you stand out from the crowd. Celebrities with insured body parts range from football players who are also hair models, to singers who make their living on the road, to actresses who have certain... assets. If you’ve been thinking about having a body part insured but haven’t had the guts, take some inspiration from these celebrities who insured their body parts.

No matter who you are, you probably have one defining quality that you’re proud of. Maybe it’s your smile, or maybe you have really nice eyebrows. Now imagine if you made your living from having nice eyebrows - you’d probably want some assurance that if you lost your eyebrows in a grease fire, you’d still be able to pay your rent. That’s exactly what these celebrities have done. Celebrity insurance isn’t a new thing, either - it’s a practice that goes back to at least 1915, when Charlie Chaplin insured his twinkle toes. To find out which other celebrities insured their bodies, just keep reading.

Which celebrity do you think went overboard with their insurance? And who do you think should take out even more insurance than they already have? Let us know what you think in the comments.
