Taye Diggs – Six Fingers on Each Hand

Actor and music afficianado Taye Diggs was born with two extra fingers — one on each hand — a condition called polydactyly.

Diggs had two of his 12 fingers removed at a young age because his parents were worried the other kids would make fun of him. A wise move, that.

Joked Diggs of his additional digits, “I know you guys are thinking that I’m kidding. As a child I had an extra digit on each hand, and I remember my mom told me, they (the doctors) asked her if she wanted to let the digit grow or to remove it, and they removed it – but I could have been really handy.”
