Heidi Klum revealed that a client insured her legs for $2 million

On Jan. 18, Heidi Klum appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. During a game called “Heidi Blanking Klum,” the model had to fill in a sentence with the first thing that came to mind. One of the sentences was, “My legs were insured for $2 million … another body part that should also be insured is my ___.”

Klum playfully cupped her breasts and smilingly answered, “Is not, but should.”

She then clarified that she was not the one who took out a policy on her famous legs. “I didn’t insure them, by the way,” Klum told DeGeneres. “It was a client who insured them, it wasn’t me.”

Back in 2017, the model opened up to People about her famous gams. “I always enjoyed, and I still do, wearing super short miniskirts showing off my legs,” Klum said. “I think legs are sexy. I do like to put a focus on my legs when I go out or when I get onto the red carpet. I do.”

Klum also shared with DeGeneres that one of her legs is insured for more than the other, and there is a very specific reason for the price difference. 

“One was actually more expensive than the other because when I was young, I fell into a glass and I have, like, a big scar,” the model said. “Obviously I put so much spray tan on right now you can’t see it right now but yeah, one was more expensive than the other one.”

The scarred leg is insured for $1 million, while the other is insured for $1.2 million. Klum added, “It’s weird the things that some people do.”
