5 Actors With Uncomfortable Memories In The Makeup Chair

Published

on

It’s always a great feeling for actors to transform into a new character. With the help of prosthetics and makeup, their transformation develops even further. Sometimes, these new additions can lead to some uncomfortable moments on camera. These five great actors had some memorable encounters with the makeup department on the set of some of our favorite films.

Dave Bautista

Dave Bautista shows off his funnier side as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy. Getting all of that material off, however, was no laughing matter. “I have to sit in a sauna for 45 minutes to an hour before they can come in with chemicals and almost peel it off,” he told Metro U.K.

Marvel Studios

John Rhys-Davies

John Rhys-Davies earned praise for his portrayal of Gimli in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Unfortunately, his time in the makeup chair was dreadful. The actor was allergic to the prosthetic used to create the character. Rhys-Davies is thankful he doesn’t have to endure that pain anymore. “I am not sure my face can take that sort of punishment anymore,” he told SyFy.

Michael Chiklis

Emmy-nominated actor Michael Chiklis didn’t like the feel of his Thing costume. “It’s 60 pounds and it’s insanely hot. And I rarely got into any kind of cardiovascular area, but my heart rate went up immediately because of the heat,” he told Fox News. Luckily, he learned how to focus comfortably in the suit.

Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey had a horrible experience while trying on the Grinch outfit for the first time. “On the first day, I went back to my trailer, put my leg through the wall and told Ron Howard I couldn’t do the movie,” he told radio host Graham Norton. A former CIA trainer was brought in to help Carrey through the process.

Universal Pictures

Peter Weller

Peter Weller had to spend 10 long hours daily to become the iconic Robocop. The Wisconsin native managed to endure through this long process without breaking down. “There were 27 days of absolute – I wouldn’t say ‘misery,’ but it really demanded a Zen sort of discipline,” he told SyFy.
