Funnyman Jim Carrey wasn’t laughing when he was in the makeup chair for How The Grinch Stole Christmas. It took three hours a day to get his costume situated, Carrey literally broke down and told the director he’d give all the money back if they didn’t make him go through with the role.

That’s when the producer called in a military trainer who specialized in torturous situations. He spent the weekend with Carrey, and afterward, the actor was good to go with the part.
