Stars shell out an arm and a leg! MEGA IN­SUR­ANCE DEALS

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ by FELIC­ITY CROSS felic­ity.cross@dai­lystar.co.uk

OUR big­gest stars are spend­ing for­tunes in­sur­ing their fa­mous bod­ies.

Foot­baller Cris­tiano Ron­aldo has his prized pins cov­ered for a whop­ping £109mil­lion.

But even that was dwarfed by the £147m pol­icy David Beck­ham, inset, took out on his legs at the height of his ca­reer.

The deal was thought to be the big­gest in sports his­tory – so big it had to be cov­ered by mul­ti­ple com­pa­nies. But the footy stars’ cover is dwarfed by the £750m price diva Mariah Carey put on her pow­er­house vo­cal chords and legs. And Jen­nifer Lopez rated her rump at a mega

£227m.

Poor Kylie’s de­li­cious der­riere doesn’t come close, with a mere

£2m cover on her fa­mous as­set. Pretty Woman Ju­lia Roberts’ megawatt smile is pro­tected to the tune of £23m.

And Bond star Daniel Craig has £7m cov­er­ing his buff bod. The wack­ier poli­cies cov­ered ev­ery­thing from tongues to ’taches.

Sex Bomb Tom Jones reck­oned his ap­peal was down to his lus­cious chest hair – so much so he landed a £3.5m pol­icy for the rug. Kiss front­man Gene Sim­mons has a £500,000 bounty on his fa­mous gi­ant tongue.

And 80s Aussie crick­eter Merv Hughes’ mas­sive mous­tache was said to be cov­ered for

£200,000.

For­mula One racer Fer­nando Alonso even had a £9m price for his thumbs as part of his old deal with Fer­rari.

Nick Heath of in­sur­ance firm Make It Cheaper said: “When your in­come is based on phys­i­cal at­tributes, ei­ther sport­ing, mu­si­cal or just aes­thet­i­cally, it’s more than un­der­stand­able celebri­ties want to pro­tect their liveli­hood with these huge in­sur­ance pre­mi­ums, should they ever be­come dam­aged.” MARIAH CAREY’S legs & vo­cal chords JEN­NIFER LOPEZ’S bum
