(Newser) – The British actress who plays the Bond girl in the upcoming Quantum Of Solace admits she was born with six fingers on each hand. Gemma Arterton, the 22-year-old starlet who portrays Agent Fields to Daniel Craig’s James Bond, underwent an operation to remove them, leaving two bumpy scars as the only reminders of her extra digits, the Daily Mail reports.

She tells Esquire: “It's my little oddity that I'm really proud of. It makes me different.” Earlier this year, she revealed she was born with a crumpled ear, also corrected through surgery. “I was born with lots of deformities.”
