Bonding With 007's New Girl

Bonding With 007's New Girl One of the Bond girls from Quantum of Solace has been surprisingly candid lately about some of her more unusual physical attributes. Get your mind out of the gutter--it's not that kind of physical attribute. London's Daily Mail reports that Gemma Arterton reveals in the newest Esquire magazine that she was born with six fingers on each hand. The extra digits were tied at the base an allowed to wither up and fall off naturally. If you look closely, you can see the slight scars that remain. Although, considering she plays one of 007's famously beautiful love interests in the upcoming pic, it's unlikely many will be looking at her hands when she's onscreen. Her polydactyly isn't the only thing Arterton is revealing, either. Click on through for Quantum spoilers.

Another report in the Daily Mail showcases Arterton as she films her character's final scene. Her nude body is drenched in crude oil (or whatever the movie magic substitute is) and laid out across a bed in a pose purposefully reminiscent of Shirley Eaton's metallic finale in Goldfinger. Arterton is relatively new to acting, but she deserves kudos for managing to strike a modelesque pose while looking like she just went swimming with Exxon Valdez.

This may have been one of the talents that helped Arterton beat out 1500 other hopefuls for the role. Her reward? As Agent Fields, she gets to bed Bond. She's supposed to just "keep tabs" on him, but one thing leads to another and really, MI6 should know better than to send sexy spies after James Bond. All too often, things don't end particularly well for the babes in Bond's life. But luckily Arterton describes Daniel Craig as "an incredible kisser" and the whole thing came off as a great experience. What's a little black goo all up in your nooks and crannies for that kind of trade-off?
