Give her a hand — please!
Kimbra Hickey wants some recognition for her pinky-size role in the "Twilight" phenomenon.
Hers are the slender, ghostly hands cupping a red apple on the now-famous cover of the first hit book by Stephenie Meyer.
But Hickey's lack of fame has her cracking her knuckles in frustration.
"It was major exposure for my hands," said the petite, 40-year-old model. "But nobody knew who I was."
The story goes on to make you feel really sad for Hickey—she stops people who are reading the book to tell them she's the hand model on the cover, and she carries an apple in her purse when she goes to bookstores in order to convince people of her tiny part in Mormon-vampire-publishing history—but the real star here is the writer of the article, Joseph Goldstein. Fine work, sir. I salute you.
