Vince Vaughn is one of the most famous funnymen on the planet. But no matter how many of the actor’s comedy films you’ve seen, you still may not have noticed his unusual thumb. Vaughn isn’t trying to hide his deformed digit, though. In fact, he has opened up about the oddity – and even revealed the shocking way in which it came to be.
Vaughn was raised in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, though Minneapolis, Minnesota, was his birthplace. His mother, Sharon, enjoyed great success selling both shares and property, and Vaughn would later cite her as a major influence on his acting career. His father, Vernon, meanwhile, was a sales representative at a toy business.
