Holly Madison insures breasts: Other celebs with body part policies

Holly Madison, a former Playboy covergirl and Hugh Hefner girlfriend, has insured her breasts for $1 million, as was noted in Thursday’s Celebritology morning mix.

“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.”

Lloyd’s of London granted the realty star’s request.

(Quiz: Can you match celebrities to their insured body parts?)

Although the worth of Madison’s breasts may be questionable to some, she’s not the first celebrity to take out a huge insurance policy on a body part.

$1 million insurance policy with Lloyd’s.

Mariah Carey won the honor on 2006. Her legs were insured for a whopping $1 billion.

Indeed, it seems that legs are a very popular choice to insure.

Jamie Lee Curtis, Mary Hart and Heidi Klum all reportedly have had their gams insured. David Beckham’s $70 million policy on his legs make sense, considering his career.

As does Tom Jones reported $7 million worth of coverage for his chest hair. (Kidding?)
