Thanks to a childhood accident he never got around to fixing, actor Denzel Washington's pinky finger on his right hand can be bent at a 45-degree angle.

Washington used his disjointed finger as a parlor trick of sorts, which helped him in his early acting career.

Said one of his co-stars, "He has this pinkie that goes out of joint and he’d freak you out with it. He’ll tell a child, ‘come and touch my pinkie,’ and it will collapse."
