Jim Carrey’s ‘Grinch’ Costume Was Too Stinky!

Jim Carrey didn’t enjoy playing his iconic role in the 2000 live-action film The Grinch. It’s all because of the costume and make-up. He endured itchy green hair, extensive facial prosthetics, and yellow contact lenses. It took the actor eight hours to get into character. He was ready to quit before director Ron Howard hired CIA operatives to teach Carrey how to comfortably deal with the long hours of getting into costume.

Salma Hayek Was A #MeToo Survivor

Salma Hayek was excited to portray muralist Frida Kahlo in the 2002 biopic Frida. But unfortunately, she worked for Harvey Weinstein, the now-disgraced Hollywood producer who has been accused of sexually assaulting many stars, including Hayek.
