Halle Berry and her Six Toes
Does Halle Berry have six toes on her right foot? There are people out there who have spent a lot of time pondering this question. The evidence for the six-toe theory is based on these pictures, which are at least two years old.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that, no matter what these pictures appear to show, Halle Berry is not polydactyl. If she was, she'd admit it.

Judging by the colour, it looks like a bunion or corn, as the melanin in the skin is stretched and paler than her actual feet.

I knew those X-Men films were true! Halle is a mutant! Does this mean that Rebecca Romijn is really bright blue?

Is this just something like the "Marilyn Monroe has 6 toes" thing? ANd people just randomly accuse beautiful women of having 6 toes so they can feel better about themselves...b/c they are "normal" with 5 toes...but also ugly.

Dudes, that's not a sixth toe. That's the slightly lumpy look that happens when your little toe gets shoved inwards, either from genetics or wearing tight heels too much. I've seen that before on women, especially skinny ones. I don't think it's that uncommon.

Sorry--I'm having a tough time focusing on her toes.

I counted the number of toes on the largre blow-up picture and there are only five. But the little toe does seem distorted hich may look like an extra toe on the smaller picture of her foot. But I agree with JoeDaJuggler, who wants to concentrate on her feet anyway.

Yeah, I'm surprised no one noticed her two nipples.

You raise a good point, poo (well two of 'em), but I think those were photoshopped in. If it were that cold she wouldn't be dressed for warm weather.

Let me start by saying she is such a beautiful woman...

It doesn't matter how many toes she has those have got to be the ugliest feet I've EVER seen on a woman. Hammer Time all up in Halle's shoes...

sorry - saw on a trivia show , had halle and another actress - and the question was ... which one of these actresses has six toes. So hence a search was in order.. So her sixth toe has reached game show status

There are pictures like these floating all over the web. There's also a rumor that Oprah has six toes, along with the picture "proving" it. It's amazing what we can do with Adobe Photoshop in touching up and modifying pics. A lot of people out there are mighty bored with too much time on their hands.

I am only interested by what's in between her 2 big toes
Posted by Jimbo  in  MTL  on  Mon Dec 01, 2008  at  03:12 PM
But admit it guys, she's still beautiful with or without her sixth toe.

She undoubtedly has the best feet among afro-american celebrities! Here's ultimate collection of Halle Berry's feet:

You know what people, who cares if she has 6 toes, toes does not define who you are, I don't care if she has 12 toes, her outter beauty is so pure and one of a kind for her frame and age. This women makes a statement everytime you see her, she is nothing but the truth, she looks better and younger than the younger ladies in the industry on any given day. And on top of that 80% of the time even on her bad day she probably looks better than any younger lady in the industry. Everybody is not perfect, you can be close to perfect though, the media running with this trying make us think Hally Berry is not perfect or close to perfect after all with this 6 toes thing. So what if she has a extra toe, Man Ms. Berry is close to perfect as far as outter beauty goes despite the extra toe, I dont care if she has 12 toes. You know what, real talk, if a man took this picture and blew this up and all the fellas on here making a big deal about the extra toe, I bet yall will still eat fruits off her 6 toes, how about that, take that to the bank. How old is she again? Okay then, she is in her early 40's, pass her prime and still shine. Who care about the 6 toes, fellas you will still kill to spend only 6 minutes with her and her 6 toe if you could. I will depart on this note, 6 toes does not define you.

Was born in 1950 with 6 toes on each foot. Toe was removed from each foot at reaching 12 months of age and hospitalised for 6 months until I was able to walk. Always had problems with balance and running - my mother always claimed they removed the wrong toes!!
Came about from medication my mother was prescribed during her pregnancy. I have a photo (somewhere) of myself as a baby with 6 toes prominent to view.
I am a total fan of Halle, but only realised this evening that we may have something in common!!
