Celebrities' Insured Body Parts

Heidi Klum's Legs = $2.2 Million

The Project Runway host and supermodel, who at the height of her career earned the nickname, "The Body," insured her money-making limbs for over two million dollars. The right leg is worth $1.2 million, the left $1 million -- because of a slight imperfection. "They are different values because I have this little scar. I had to be examined in London. A guy came and inspected my leg," explained the mutli-talented mom.

Heidi Klum isn't the only star to get extra appendage insurance. Soccer star David Beckham's legs are insured for $70 million, Mariah Carey's for $1 billion, Rihanna's for $1 million and Tina Turner's for $3.2 million.

Dolly Parton's Breasts = $600,000

Along with her mile-high hair and twangy voice, Dolly Parton's, um, treasure chest helped raise her to iconic bombshell status, thus requiring a bit more protection than just a reinforced bra. Which is why the country singer reportedly insured her 40DD's to the tune of six figures.

Football Player Troy Polamalu's Hair = $1 Million

Head & Shoulders recently took out a $1 million Lloyd's of London policy to cover the Pittsburgh Steelers safety's bushy dark locks. The spokesperson for the anti-dandruff shampoo said that he hasn't cut his hair since 2000.

In other hirsute news, Tom Jones has his chest hair insured for $7 million!

America Ferrera's Smile = $10 Million

Who would have thought Ugly Betty's grin would be the fairest (and costliest) of them all? In 2007, Aquafresh White Trays secured America Ferrera's teeth for the princely amount, establishing one of Lloyd's of London's most-valued policies.

David Lee Roth's Sperm = $1 Million

Leave it to the Van Halen frontman to redefine "protected sex." Back in his free-lovin' days, the high-flying '80s rocker insured his sperm for one million bucks. The policy's intention was to guard against any potential paternity suits from knocked-up groupies.

Other top performers include Keith Richards' middle finger: $1.6 million, Kiss singer Gene Simmons' tongue: $1 million, and Rod Stewart and Bruce Springsteen's voices: $6 million each.

Santa's Beard = Undisclosed Amount

As the face of Father Christmas for Macy's, Brady White a.k.a. "Santa to the Stars" earns his jiggle with those white whiskers, and fake facial hair will just not do! "All sorts of things can happen to Santa's beard and I wanted to know that it was protected. Children can be a little rough so it gets tugged and pulled a lot, and then there is the soot and the danger of being singed when I head down the chimneys," explained Old St. Nick.
