She told Graham Norton that her dad wore the costume on set for a day while filming ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’
During a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Bryce, 42, revealed that she “absolutely” saw her dad as a director when she was a kid and “wanted to be on set constantly.”
As the Argylle star explained, her father Ron set “a really good example” for her, even teaching her lessons through how he respected colleagues such as Carrey, 62.
“Sometimes actors go through things that cause a tremendous stress and you need to move forward,” Bryce said. “Jim Carrey on The Grinch, getting all of his makeup on [was] so intense. They had him collaborate with a Navy Seal to train him how to withstand torture because it was that intense for him.”
Bryce then added that Ron, now 69, “showed up on set” one day wearing Carrey’s “entire outfit.”
“[He was] like, listen, I was in the chair for six hours also this morning and I understand that it’s hellish and I’m gonna work today as the Grinch,” Bryce recalled.
Norton then joked, “not tomorrow,” prompting laughter from fellow talk show guest Bryan Cranston, who is in Argylle with her.
Howard and Carrey's efforts ended up earning them a Christmas classic in the 2000 film, which has grossed roughly $346 million worldwide off a $123 million budget, per IMDB Pro.
Carrey opened up about training to play the Grinch during a chat on Norton’s show in 2014, when he shared that the makeup on the film was “like being buried alive every day.”
“The first day was eight-and-a-half hours and I went back to the trailer and put my leg through the wall,” Carrey said. “And I told Ron Howard I couldn’t do the movie. Then [producer] Brian Grazer came in — the fix-it man — and came up with a brilliant idea, which was to hire a gentleman who is trained to teach CIA operatives how to endure torture.”

Carrey called the scenario “quite hilarious,” noting that he did the makeup “100 times” and was encouraged to eat everything he saw, change patterns in his life, punch himself in the leg and even “smoke as much as you possibly can.”
“So I was this Grinch ... with this giant cigarette holder so the Yak hair wouldn’t go on fire. The green Yak hair that turned inward. It was horrifying. I was just like, ‘It’s for the kids, it’s for the kids, it’s for the kids.’”
