Jim Carrey's How the Grinch stole Christmas Life Mask...

At Universal Studios Hollywood in L.A. you can find two Life Masks that were used to create the 'Grinch' in the 2000 movie Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

At the top of the picture is the Life Mask of Josh Ryan Evans, the actor who portrayed the eight year old 'Grinch' in the movie. Sadly he passed away in 2002 at the age of 20, as he suffered from a congenital condition called Achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism.

At the bottom of the photograph are the Life Masks for Jim Carrey's teeth, nose and ear which helped transform him for his role as the adult 'Grinch'.
