Being born with extra fingers – a condition known as polydactyly – affects one child in a thousand.
Miss Arterton had the most common form, where a small, soft digit, which does not contain a bone, can be see next to the little finger.
The doctor who delivered her tied off the extra fingers with sutures and they fell off, leaving just small scars.
Miss Arterton, who also starred in the BBC’s Tess Of The D’Urbervilles, said that polydactyly runs in her family.

‘My dad had them, and my grandad. I feel like we’re one step ahead – a sign of things to come,’ she told Esquire.

‘We could do more stuff if we had extra fingers – faster texting, faster emailing, better guitar-playing.’

Earlier this year, she revealed she was also born with a crumpled ear, which was corrected through surgery.
She said: ‘I was born with lots of deformities.’
After being seen as dowdy Tess over the weekend, Gemma showed a far sexier side when she arrived at a London party to mark the end of author Ian Fleming’s centenary year.
