Jim Carrey's make-up prosthetics from The Grinch...

The prosthetic make-up Jim Carrey wore to become the titular 'Grinch' in the 2000 movie took three hours to apply. Apparently Carrey felt so horribly confined and uncomfortable in the latex skin he needed counseling from a Navy SEAL who taught him torture-resistance techniques.

These prosthetics from the movie were on display at Universal Studios Horror Make-Up Show in Orlando on September 23, 2010.
