It’s pretty well known that most celebrities are worth lots of money. However, some celebrities have body parts that are insured for thousands (or even millions) of dollars as well. This may sound a little strange, but a number of famous people have made a name for themselves because of a specific part of their anatomy. Advertising agencies and popular companies know this, so they have these celebrities insured, as a guarantee that their “money makers” will always remain intact.
If a celeb is often referred to as someone with great legs, beautiful eyes or a fabulous rear end, there’s a good chance those parts of the famous person are under an insurance policy. While this often turns into big bucks for the celeb in terms of advertising, it can be a little strange to think that certain famous people could be in serious financial trouble if they ever get hurt and the look of their body changes. Then again, the endorsements and commercials that often come from having an insured body can lead to a huge payday that could last for years.
Even if these famous people never made another music video or movie again, they could still make lots of money “using their bodies.” Here are 12 celebrities with body parts that are probably worth more than you.
12 Gene Simmons’ Tongue
11 Keith Richards
9 Heidi Klum
8 Tina Turner
7 Bruce Springsteen
6 Daniel Craig
5 America Ferrera
4 Jennifer Lopez
3 Julia Roberts
2 David Beckham
1 Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey’s legs are insured for $1 billion. Yes, you read that right. When Carey became a part of the Legs of a Goddess campaign for Gillette, she promoted the Venus razor-blades. Since she’s known for touring and performing on stage for hours at a time, she decided to insure her gams to make sure that her contract with Gillette wouldn’t be in jeopardy. This proved to be a very smart business move, since Gillette endorsements are still likely a huge part of Mariah Carey’s net worth. The mother of two (and ex-wife of Nick Cannon) is also a five-time Grammy winner. Even though her voice hasn’t been sounding the same these days, she’ll always be a significant figure in the music business.
