Now I must apologize, I’m not here to make fun of any deformities. I just couldn’t find a picture of DJ Paul’s (from Three Six Mafia) right “baby arm” and the only example I could think of is that freaky dude from Scary Movie 2. So with that said, DJ Paul’s right arm is deformed into when he likes to call his “baby arm”. Due to a disease he had when he was younger, his right arm just never grew. DJ Paul keeps his “baby arm” in a cast at all times.
Actress and former host of Top Chef Padma Lakshmi has a large scar on her right arm which was the result of a car crash when she was fourteen years old. Her arm was shattered and her right hip was fractured. After surgery, she regained use of both of them but was left with a huge scar on her arm. Padma recently said in an interview, “I love it because it makes me a person who has an interesting past, and it reminds me that I can survive any pain.”
Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo was born with his left leg 44 mm (1 3/4 in) shorter than his right leg. After the success of The Blue Album, Cuomo underwent a procedure to correct the condition. This involved the surgical breaking of the bone in his leg, followed by several months of wearing a steel brace which required self-administered “stretching” of the leg four times daily. An x-ray of the leg is part of the album art for “The Good Life” single, and the experience inspired him to write the song.
Bollywood’s hottest actor Hrithik Roshan carries two thumbs on his right hand. The additional thumb is a small extension which curves inwards towards his main thumb. Hrithik Roshan recently said: “I had this extra thumb…I stammered and in school – you know what kids are like – well, it was hell most of the time. My being quiet and sensitive came about as a consequence. I never felt normal. I always felt abnormal. I always felt I did not fit in.”
