Last december the Megan Fox thumb ‘saga’ continued at The Tonigh Show with Jay Leno, where Megan talked about her thumb insecurities (she has clubbed thumbs)… suggesting that she thinks her weird ‘fat’ thumbs are the result of her mom eating Tuna during her pregnancy of Megan!
‘What is weird to me is I was talking to my mom … and she was like, “Oh, I ate tuna every day when I was pregnant with you,” I was wondering if that was what happened to my thumbs. They’re weird and they’re really fat and there’s like a weird knuckle.’
Now that Megan has become a mom herself (in the summer of 2012 Megan wondered if she was maybe birthing a vampire baby like the one from ‘Twilight’), it is heartbreaking to see that she now has the guts to talk about her thumb insecurities. Hopefully, this will inspire other people having this physical anomaly to deal with feeling of shame!

Funny Armani commercial: ‘The tip’ (2010) – feat. Megan Fox.
Remember the funny story about actress Megan Fox thumbs being photoshopped in the 2010 Motorola Superbowl commercial? Well, in the 2010 Armani jeans & underwear commercials the producers made likewise actions on her thumbs!
For those who are not yet familiar with the shape of Megan Fox’s thumb, the recent picture below displays an impression of her ‘clubbed thumb’ which looks like a ‘toe thumb’ (a.k.a. brachydactyly type d, or BDD).
MEGAN’S ARMANI THUMBS:
Now, let’s take a look at some impression from Megan’s 2010 Armani jeans & underwear ad campaign. Notice anything strange about her thumbs in the first two pictures below? – Probably not.
So far so good?
But what is your impression of the photos below? Notice anything strange about her thumb? Yes, yes, yes! The Armani people definitely took the time to photoshop her thumb, because now it suddenly appears to be a normal ‘slender’ thumb with a longer fingernail – but that is not how Megan’s thumbs look like at all!
Obviously, the Armani people replaced it altogether. What’s wrong with you, people? Why not photoshop her tattoos, but only Megan’s thumbs… bad taste?
By the way, Megan Fox’s thumb story does not stand on it’s own. Because today Photoshopping is applied to nearly every photo of any model. And as a matter of fact: there are many examples available where the details can be studied, such as: the famous Madonna photoshop example, and here are 40 other amazing photoshop examples.
Anyway, even as a married woman… Megan definitely succeeded in the Armani video ‘The tip’ (see above) to keep her cool ‘sexy’ image alive. Definitely a funny, amusing commercial: thumbs up for Megan & Armani!

Megan Fox has clubbed thumbs!
In the summer of 2009 Megan Fox’s right thumb became news after new photos of her indicated that the beauty has a rather misshapen thumb – as compared to the ‘natural’ thumb standard that is seen everywhere in the world. What do we know about this rather remarkable type of thumb?
Having your thumb in the form of a club, which is called brachydactyly – type D (BDD), which is a minor affliction that can be found in 1 out of every 1,000 people. Local hand surgeons know everything about it there is to know.
More Megan Fox thumbs: impressions of Megan’s club thumb:
Dr. Steven Bendner, the leading hand surgery expert at Beth Israel Medical Center, explains that the case of the thumb that looks a bit flattened and therefore shorter, is often a peculiarity that comes down in the family:
“The nail of the thumb in this condition is often very short and wide. It is usually hereditary, although it could also have been caused by frostbite, or it could have been an injury to the growth plate in childhood. While one is young, the thumb often looks more or less ordinary, but with the passing of time its shortened condition begins to stand out more and more.”
So, contrary to ‘fingernail clubbing‘, a clubbed thumb is usually nothing to worry about!
Dr. Richard Kim, director of congenital hand surgery at Hackensack Medical Center, warns us not to play down the importance of the thumb.:
“You need it to be able to touch the other fingers and it is important for pinching. In Megan Fox’s case, it appears that only the last bone of the thumb is affected and that it does not involve the joint. For her, it looks like it’s just a cosmetic deficit.”
Why this story about the Megan Fox thumb? Hopefully, knowing about Megan Fox’s little imperfection will help other people to realize that – when not overplayed by the owner – a small cosmetic defect might only add to the charms of a person.
