'I was born with six fingers on each hand' reveals Bond Girl Gemma Arterton in startling interview

New Bond girl Gemma Arterton may be many men's idea of the classic English rose, but her path to the beautiful actress she is today wasn't so easy.

The 22-year-old starlet, who plays Agent Fields in the upcoming Quantum Of Solace, admitted she was born with six fingers on each hand.

After undergoing an operation to have them removed, she still has bumpy scars as remainders of her extra digits.

The extra fingers were 'tied', which causes them to fall off naturally.

She tells Esquire magazine: 'It's my little oddity that I'm really proud of. It makes me different.'

Earlier this year, she revealed she was also born with a crumpled ear, which was corrected through surgery.

She said: 'I was born with lots of deformities.'

After being seen as dowdy Tess of the D'Urbevilles over the weekend, Gemma showed a far sexier side when she arrived at a London party to mark the end of author Ian Fleming's centenary year.

The 22-year-old showed off her curvaceous figure in a stunning gold dress.

Her outfit was a far cry from the dowdy clothes her character Tess wears in the BBC adaptation of the Thomas Hardy novel.

An entire host of Bond stars turned out to the event on Sunday to pay tribute to Bond author Fleming, including former 007 star Roger Moore and the current Bond, Daniel Craig.

A bevy of former Bond Girls also made an appearance, including Caroline Munro and Madeline Smith.

Quantum of Solace - the 22nd film - will be released on November 14.

Arterton beat off competition from 1,500 other hopefuls to get the role as the latest Bond Girl.

The star has this month moved her new Spanish boyfriend Eduardo Munoz into her two-bedroom flat in Crouch End, north London.

The actress met the 19-year-old 6ft 2in action man on the Moroccan set of the £50million blockbuster Prince Of Persia in August, where he was employed to teach her how to ride horses.

They hit it off immediately, despite the language barrier. But she has now had to hire a translator to help them understand each other better.
