Default Ugly Betty insures smile for $10 million/DiCaprio sued over his basketball court



LONDON (AFP) - America Ferrera, star of the US television show "Ugly Betty", has had her smile insured for 10 million dollars (five million pounds, 7.4 million euros), insurance market Lloyds of London said.


The policy was taken out by Aquafresh White Trays, a teeth whitening product manufacturer which is working with the actress for a US charity that campaigns for free dental campaign for jobless women.

Ferrera, 23, plays Betty Suarez, an ugly duckling with train-track braces on her teeth and an idiosyncratic dress sense, who works at a snobby New York fashion magazine.

Lloyds has a record of providing unusual cover for celebrities. In the past, it has insured Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards' fingers and screen siren Marlene Dietrich's legs.

Bette Davis is reputed to have once sought cover against her waistline expanding and an underwriter was once approached to insure an unnamed celebritys chest hair, it added.

LOS ANGELES - Leonardo DiCaprio's neighbor is charging him with an offensive foul, claiming the actor excavated the neighboring property without permission and damaged plants and hedges to build a basketball court at his home.


Legal papers filed last week in Superior Court by Ronald and Joan Linclau said the construction weakened a hillside and left their deck and pool in danger of collapse.

The lawsuit seeks at least $250,000 in damages.

DiCaprio "failed to exercise ordinary care ... in making the excavations and failed to take reasonable precautions to sustain the adjoining land ... in its natural state," the suit claimed.

A DiCaprio spokesman, Ken Sunshine, said the lawsuit "is totally without merit."

The lawsuit claimed DiCaprio ignored warnings that he was trespassing on the property, located in the hills above Sunset Boulevard.
