Megan Fox's thumb: So does this make her a 9.99?

Megan-fox-thumb_l According to the all-seeing eye of Google, the Internet is abuzz (oratwitter, or whatever the kids are doing these days) about the factthat Transformers babe Megan Fox appears to have a slightlyshorter-than-average thumb. And by “slightly,” we mean “totallyunnoticeable until you zoom to 600 percent, but hey, isn’t that what computersare for?” Anyway, the haters (“Megan Fox is a freak!”) and thedefenders (“Nobody is actually perfect”) have already startedattacking each other over whether or not this bumps Her Foxiness downto a 9.999, but we think the real question has a lot more to do withthe perils of being a sex symbol in the digital age.

Gone are the dayswhen a pretty face and a nice figure did the trick. Now you have tosubmit to a full-body inspection, with millions of eyes scanning everyinch for freckles and stray hairs. Not only that, but you’re expectedto be on your game 24/7; no fair trying to get the mail or walk to thegym looking like a normal person. The world will see, and they won’t bepolite about it. As for Ms. Fox’s digits, we’re pretty sure this isn’tgoing to put much of a dent in her fanbase (something tells us theireyes spend a lot more time on other parts of her anatomy). But the factthat this is even out there is a little disturbing, isn’t it?

What do you think, PopWatchers? Has our idea of perfection gotten outof hand? Or do sex symbols like Fox invite the scrutiny by playing uptheir physical attributes?

    My sister sucked her thumb til she was seven. To this day (she’s 25 now), the thumb she sucked is significantly shorter than the one she didn’t. Assuming this is also true for Megan Fox, I submit to you that the shorter thumb will actually make her seem hotter.

    • Freak thumb

      I too suffer from the dreaded “toe thumb”… Actually to be perfectly honest I find my thumbs hilarious! I use to suck my thumbs too, sadly one more then the other, both retarded but one slightly more so. I find it weird that they went to the trouble of using a thumb double though, I mean COME ON its a thumb, who would notice and more to the point who would care!

    I can’t believe I’m commenting on this, but… is the “debate” based on the inset in this image? Because from that picture, the shortness of the thumb looks just like perspective foreshortening to me, i.e. her thumb is bent and coming toward the camera.

  • E

    I’m surprised she hasn’t had plastic surgery to fix that thumb just like what she’s done with her face.

  • Whammy

    Yeah, thanks to Howard Stern this is a popular topic. Someone called in and then Howard and everyone checked it out.

  • DK

    The debate was started over this image, actually, which shows the weird thumb much more obviously:

    I still say she’s attractive but obnoxious. Her thumb has nothing to do with me not liking her.

    people need lives if they spend their time analyzing someone’s thumb

  • GeeMoney

    Two words…. WHO CARES!

  • BrandonK

    Oh, two of my aunts have that kind of thumb! I don’t think it detracts from Megan’s “hotness” or whatever.

  • KR

    I’m beginning to hate the internet. We need to find a way to block all psycho haters from using it. How many people are beginning to bail from these new technologies cuz of the animosity out there? Trent Reznor is one.

    I believe that thumb may be called *splayed*, and as both mine are of that sort I’m kind of turned on right now… not that Megan Fox ever did anything else to me! Interviews I’ve seen/read w/ her only make her all the sexier… she’s not a brain surgeon but she’s no bimbo, either. She knows she’s hot and she knows how far that gets her- the rest of the way is personality and hard work.
    Know what her thumb(s) mean for sure? That her hands have to be doubled in close-ups.

    • Shara

      She might not be stupid but, I don’t like her because of how much of bi**h she is. You can’t treat people like crap and think you can get away with it. Hence, not being in the 3rd Transformers movie.

  • Allie

    It’s called a “clubbed thumb” (Wikipedia it) and Megan Fox totally has one. That’s a bad picture to show it off, though, and I don’t think that’s the correct thumb anyway.

    It’s called a “clubbed thumb” (Wikipedia it) and Megan Fox totally has one. That’s not a good picture to show it off, though, and I’m not even sure that’s the correct thumb anyway.

  • plushpuppy

    Even Cowgirls get the Blues

  • brittney

    I have the same exact shape thumb!!

  • brittney

    I have the same shaped thumb. So what it is not like it makes her any less popular if anything it will make her more popular. And like she really cares you you all say bad about her. Because I am not famous and I love my retarded thumb. (as my dad calles it)
    and it is not because you suck your thumb why it gets shorter it is genetic!
