Former "Girls Next Door" star Holly Madison became famous for her relationship with Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner and her, ahem, assets. Now, the blonde bombshell is insuring her biggest moneymakers for $1 million.
"I've heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I'd be out for a few months and I'd probably be out a million dollars," Madison told People. "I thought I'd cover my assets."
She's currently headlining in Las Vegas in the showgirl-esque "Peepshow."
"I think it's kind of funny. I think they're getting the credit they deserve," Madison said of her enhanced breasts. "They're my primary money makers right now."
Madison went through Lloyds of London for the insurance policy. Plenty of other celebrities have insured their own body parts against injury. Probably a smart decision in this economy.
Legendary singer Tina Turner is known for both her distinctive singing voice and her sexy gams (remember the "What's Love Got to Do With It" video?) The icon insured her legs for a reported $3.2 million dollars.
Other celebrities have obtained insurance policies on their legs, including Heidi Klum, Mariah Carey, Betty Grable and Brooke Shields, among others.
It's hard to argue that Celine Dion has one of the most powerful - and recognizable - voices in music. The French-Canadian superstar insured her voice with Lloyd's of London for an unknown amount. We totally support this one.
Former "Ugly Betty" star America Ferrera insured her teeth for $10 million. Well, she didn't do it, but Aquafresh White Trays did. The company took out the policy in 2007 while working on a charity project with the actress.
It was all for a good cause: the work of Aquafesh and Ferrera helped provide jobless women with completely free dental care.
Nobody can bend it like Beckham. The English footballer insured his knees with Lloyd's of London to ensure that he can keep bending it for the foreseeable future. Maybe he should consider insuring that beautiful face of his, too?
The best insurance policy
Our favorite Lloyds of London insurance policy didn't come from a celebrity, but from a comedy troupe; the confident comedians took out an insurance policy just in case their audience actually dies of laughter.
No word if they ever had to make a claim on it.
What body part would you insure if you had the chance?
