Holly Madison and Other Stars Who Have Insured Body Parts
Jennifer Lopez, Riverdance's Michael Flatley and Bette Davis are among those who have reportedly taken out policies on themselves.
Holly Madison admitted Thursday that she insured her breasts 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,” she told People. “I thought I’d cover my assets.”
The former girlfriend to Hugh Hefner and star of reality show Holly's World -- who currently appears topless in her Las Vegas revue, Peepshow -- adds that her breasts "are getting the credit they deserve. They're my primary money makers right now."
But she's not the only boldfaced name who has taken out a policy on her body.

Real Madrid announced they insured star Cristiano Ronaldo's legs for $144 million.

Bette Davis bought a $28,000 insurance policy through Lloyd's of London in the 1040s on her waist. Betty Grable reportedly had her legs insured for $1 million by MGM.
