Megan Fox has sent a message to trolls who’ve criticised her ‘weird’ thumbs.

Fox, 37, is an actress known for her roles in films such as Jennifer’s Body and the Transformers series.

With her stunning looks and on-screen presence, Fox has established herself as a prominent figure in Hollywood, captivating audiences and earning a dedicated fan base.

However, some fans have mocked her thumbs online, and now she’s hit back.

Watch as Megan Fox discusses her ‘body dysmorphia’ and ‘deep insecurities’…

Fox has expressed her confusion regarding the fan obsession with her ‘short’ thumbs.

Despite widespread online discussions about her thumbs, Fox says she doesn’t consider them to be ‘weird’ and is not embarrassed about her condition, which is known as brachydactyly.

According to WebMD, brachydactyly is a congenital condition that a person is born with.

It leads to someone’s fingers and toes being shorter than average in comparison to the general size of the body.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, she says: “I don’t know why people are so fascinated by my thumbs.

“They’re just kind of short. Is it really that crazy?”


She goes on to say that her shorter-than-normal fingers have an interesting significance in palmistry, where they are referred to as a ‘murderer’s thumb’ and thought to correlate with a shorter temper.

However, Fox clarifies that it takes a lot for her to lose her temper and that she possesses great patience, although she admits that when pushed over the edge, her anger can be intense.

The actress emphasises that she has plenty of other imperfections that she finds more interesting than her thumbs and can’t understand why people focus on them.

She previously addressed her ‘toe thumbs’ on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in 2012 after facing criticism from online trolls about her thumbs’ appearance.

During the interview, Fox also opened up about her struggles with body dysmorphia, admitting that she doesn’t see herself the way others perceive her and has never loved her body.

She explains: “I have body dysmorphia. I don’t ever see myself the way other people see me.

“There is never a point in my life where I loved my body, ever ever.”

She goes on to describe having an awareness and obsession with her image from a young age.

Fox shares three sons with her ex-husband Brian Austin Green and recently, she got engaged to musician Machine Gun Kelly (MGK).

Despite the ups and downs in her personal life, Megan Fox remains firm in her confidence about her thumbs and encourages others to focus on more important aspects rather than her physical imperfections.
