Hugh Hefner's former head girlfriend Holly Madison is taking no chances with her most valuable assets. The Playboy bunny, who appears topless in part of her glittering Las Vegas showgirl-style production Peepshow, has taken out a huge insurance policy on her breasts.

"I've heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not?, because if anything happened to my boobs, I'd be out for a few months and I'd probably be out a million dollars," Madison told People. "I thought I'd cover my assets."

Madison's $1 million insurance policy is through Lloyd's of London, a group that has also insured the legs of Betty Grable, Brooke Shields,Tina Turner and Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley, the fingers of Keith Richards, the vocal cords of Celine Dion, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, the smile of America Ferrera, the hair of football player Troy Polamalu -- and the breasts of burlesque star Tempest Storm.

"I think it's kind of funny. I think they're getting the credit they deserve," Madison said. "They're my primary money makers right now."

Not bad for a set that probably cost her about $10,000 -- she has admitted she jumped from an A-cup to a D. She became Hugh Hefner's main girlfriend in 2001 and became a near-household name in 2005 with the premiere of The Girls Next Door.

Madison and Hefner broke up in 2009, and Hefner later became engaged to Crystal Harris -- a match about which Madison was vocally suspicious. When Harris took off just days before the wedding, Madison ripped the runaway bride a new one on Twitter.

Madison still has not commented on the engagement of her ex Criss Angel.
