Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has insured her legs for £26m


Taylor Swift is, arguably, as famous for her endless pins as she is her music and group of celebrity friends.

We've lost count of the number of times we've seen Taylor flaunt her legs in a pair of teeny tiny shorts or miniskirt, not to mention in high energy dance routines on stage.

And when you're in possession of something that's so valuable, it's worth getting insurance, right? So like Mariah Carey, Heidi Klum and Rihanna before her, Tay has reportedly insured her legs for a whopping £26m. Which is actually pretty modest when compared to Ms Carey, who allegedly took out a $1bn policy after appearing in Gillett's Legs Of A Goddess campaign in 2006. Sure.

Still, £26m is a lot of money, and Taylor was said to be a little embarrassed when she learned what her limbs were worth.

'It seems like a ludicrous sum, but if something was to happen to her legs, Swift wouldn't be able to give her signature stage performances,' a source told the National Enquirer, adding 'her $200 million career would be in big trouble.'

Taylor and Mariah aside, who else has taken out insurance policies to protect their most treasured body parts?

1. Jennifer Lopez
Before Kim Kardashian, the most famous derriere around belonged to JLo, and the singer is thought to have forked out as much as £180m to insure her behind.


2. Julia Roberts
The Pretty Woman star is as well known for her mega watt smile as she is for her movie roles, so it may come as little surprise that she's insured those pearly whites for an eye-watering £19m.


3. Dolly Parton
What do you think of when you think of Dolly Parton? Voice? Sure. Pithy one-liners? Of course. Impressive cleavage? Definitely. It's the latter that the country singer got insured in the 1970s for £380,000.


4. David Beckham
While these days David is perhaps better known for his muscular torso (thanks to those H&M ads), the former footballer and England captain had his legs insured for somewhere in the region of £46m at the height of his sporting career.
