Megan Fox Uses Thumb Double For Super Bowl Commercial
Even gorgeous gal Megan Fox has her imperfections. So much so that her clubbed thumb was replaced by a stunt thumb for Motorola's Super Bowl commercial. Wonder how many millions on top of the millions they spent for a 30 second spot on top of the thousands they probably paid Megan were spent.
If Motorola's Superbowl commercial proved anything Sunday night, it's that there are one too many bloggers out there who are overly familiar with Megan Fox's body parts - especially her thumbs. The commercial features the sexy "Transformers star au natural in a bathtub filled with strategically placed bubbles.
According to the Daily Mail, after the commercial aired, meticulous bloggers noted that Motorola employed a hand double for Fox's closeups.
After Fox's promotional movie photos surfaced last summer, revealing a candid look at her abnormally shaped thumbs, the Daily News learned that the 23-year-old actress has a hereditary defect known as brachydactyly.
"Literally, what it means is short finger," Dr. Steven Bendner, a hand surgeon at Beth Israel Medical Center, told us. "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." (source)
If only my thumbs were imperfect.
