Quick funny story of the day: Jennifer Love Hewitt says she should insure her boobs for millions of dollars. Being on the show, The Client List as a call woman, they have become well-known throughout tv watchers of America. She told USA Today,”I need, like, an insurance invitation. If somebody was like, ‘Hey, you know what? We would like to insure your boobs for $2.5 million dollars,’ I’d be like, ‘Do it. Love it! Why not?’ These things right here are worth $5 million!”
Many celebrities are known for their specific calling card. Madonna is known for her gapped teeth, Marilyn Monroe for her birthmark, Barbra Streisand for her nose, so why not a women for her chest? There are very few that wouldn’t know Pamela Anderson’s Baywatch run.
What’s interesting is that most people are able to pull specific celebrities out of a lineup with just a picture of their mouths, noses or eyes. But the sad reality is that many parents recognize celebrities’ features easier than their own children’s.
Does this mean we spend more time staring at these wealthy few, than we do the people we love? Or does it mean that they are special enough to be engraved in our brains?
