Models, musicians, actresses and athletes have to take care of themselves to stay at the top of their respective fields. However, when one reaches such great levels of popularity it�s no surprise that they take precautions in the case of the unforeseen. With this in mind, online quote comparison site www.kanetix.ca compiled a list of the top ten celebrity insured body parts.
The list takes into account two specific factors: the amount of money placed on the policy, and the sheer strangeness of it. While some body parts are certainly stranger than others (see: David Lee Roth), weight is placed equally on the strangeness of a particular insured body part and the amount of money riding on the policy.
In this sense, a few notable celebs were just shy of making the final cut: Tom Jones� insured chest hair, cricket star Merv Hughes� $370,000 mustache, and of course the legendary bassist of KISS, Gene Simmons, and his infamous tongue, which is reportedly insured for a whopping $1 million.
