The Most Expensive Legs in History


While stars’ talent is certainly worth a million bucks, apparently their legs can be, too. The practice of insuring body parts dates back to the early 1900s, when vaudeville actor Ben Turpin took out a policy for his crossed eyes, payable if they ever went straight. Other Old Hollywood celebrities also had their figures protected, including Bette Davis for her waist. The practice became a publicity stunt made most famous by actress Betty Grable and her impressive legs, and followed by stars such as Rihanna and Taylor Swift. In honor of Grable, who’s 103rd birthday would be today, discover how her legs set the precedent for the most expensive legs in history.
