Shatner Refuses To Sell Hip Bone

Published on February 28, 2008 with No Comments

William Shatner has chosen not to sell the hip bone he recently had replaced – because it would be in bad taste.

The former Star Trek star sold a kidney stone for $75,000 last year, and donated the proceeds – together with $20,000 from his Boston Legal co-stars, to Habitat For Humanity for the organisation’s house building programme in devastated New Orleans, Louisiana.

And he considered approaching online site – the company that bought his kidney stone – to see if they were interested in his hip bone after a photo he was sent of the happy family, who had moved into the house his cash had built, brought tears to his eyes.

He said: “ gave me $75,000 for my ugly little kidney stone (and) I had this hip replacement less than four weeks ago and I thought, `How bad taste would it be to sell my hip bone?’ I then decided it was bad taste, and, for me to decide something is bad taste… it was really bad.”
