Two Thumbs Close-Up

Yet another reason to be disturbed by The Break-Up...

Flipping through Entertainment Weekly's "Exclusive!" first photo shoot of Jennifer Aniston & Vince Vaughn together, I was struck by something... odd. Maybe it's just me, but look at this picture (click here to embiggen):

See anything just a mite suggestive? Think Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Or Vaughn's own Thumbsucker.

Give up? Here's a close-up, with only minor erasing to remove distracting elements:

All thumb

Do you see it now? Or is it just me?

Apparently, Vaughn "lost a piece of his thumb in a car wreck." Now we know which part of his anatomy they used to replace it (perhaps inspired by this classic film?).

Now, take another look at that Entertainment Weekly cover on your newstand or in your bathroom:

And look closer (with minor erasing):

A Swinger's finger?

Who cares. Everyone has there flaws. That's what makes everyone different. How boring would the world be if we were all the same.

Are you aware that the first hand you highlight in the first photo is his left hand and the second photo is his right hand?

You posted at 5 am...after you have your coffee, check the first picture's his LEFT, not right hand. Don't feel bad, I had to stare at their hands for 4 minutes before I figured it out! I'm very intrigued by the nub!!

no .. scarysmurf is right.. and to the person who objected...what was in your coffee?? the first close up shows the left hand. the second close up shows the right hand. If you look at the second close up, in the upper left hand corner, you see his left hand covering his right. They are focusing on the right hand, and had erased some fingers. If it was the left hand again, the upper left hand corner of the second close up would be black, his jacket, and you wouldnt see the other part of his hand.

I can't believe I hadn't noticed that. Thanks for pointing it out.

However, I believe it's fairly common for magazines to flip photos around, so it's still possible that it's the same hand in both shots.

Or maybe both of his thumbs are messed up.

both of his thumbs are messed up. The right thumb is the one that's a hammerthumb. I had noticed his thumb in movies, he always hides it, tucks it in if you will...always wondered if something happened or if it was just a hammerthumb. My friend and I are taking count on how many we see. Hammerthumbs. Mostly, I see females with them. Anyone else?
