Celebrities have been insuring parts of their body for decades now. This fad began around one-hundred years ago, when Hollywood stars on the silver screen wanted to ensure nothing would happen to their body part – and if it did they would be compensated thoroughly for the issue. Today, musicians, models, sports stars, and actors are insuring their bodies for ground-breaking sums of money. This amount of cash would make most people blush with envy. Some of those parts are just bizarre and ridiculous, though. Here are ten ridiculous body parts insured by celebrities.
Ben Turpin was one of the first celebrities to insure a piece of their body. The silent film comedian took out a $25,000 policy just in case his eyes ever uncrossed.
America Ferrera, the star of Ugly Better, had all of her teeth insured by Aquafresh during a charity promotion. Her teeth are now worth an incredible $10 million.
