What do Christian Bale and Daryl Hannah

have in common?

They’re both celebrities? They’re both human beings (we think)? Sure, but they’re also both missing part of their left index fingers.

Hannah lost hers in a well-pulley accident at age three.

Bale reportedly injured his in a dirt-bike accident earlier this year.

"I had a dirt-biking accident and chopped it off at the end. You have something as extreme as that - you've lost the end of your finger - but it didn't hurt.

“I just kept looking at it, going, 'Why is that not hurting?' The body's amazing. (The finger) looks horrible. Everyone else almost faints looking at it."
