(Newser) – When you're a celebrity, certain body parts may be a bit more valuable to you than they are to a normal person. So why not insure them? The Frisky rounds up a dozen stars who have done just that:

  • Troy Polamalu: The NFL star's famous hair landed him an endorsement deal with Head & Shoulders, which took out a $1 million policy on the long locks.

  • America Ferrera: When she snagged an endorsement deal with a tooth product company, it insured her smile for $10 million.
  • Keith Richards: His middle finger is insured for $1.6 million. Presumably that's related to his guitar-playing abilities, rather than his bird-flipping abilities.
  • Bruce Springsteen: His vocal cords are insured for a cool $5 million.
  • Heidi Klum: Her legs are insured, but the right leg is worth more ($1.2 million) than the left leg ($1 million), thanks to a scar on her left knee.

They should all insure their egos, to make sure they never stop believing how incredibly wonderful and unique they are.

See, another example of why celebs are such assholes. Very, very over rated people.

It is incomprehensible to me that Sofia Vergara does not have the most valuable breasts in Hollywood.
