Last Wednesday was the international premiere of "Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas". The movie was chosen as this year's Royal Film Performance at the UK and of course the Queen was the event's guest of honor.

Jim Carrey attended the charity screening along with Jeffrey Tambor, Taylor Momsen, director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer, make-up effects artist Rick Baker, production designer Michael Corenblith, composer James Horner and Dr. Seuss' widow, Audrey Geisel. According to Associated Press, during their meeting, Jim Carrey confided to the Queen that the Grinch costume and makeup was "excruciatingly painful" to wear.

Robin, JCO's UK correspondent, went to Leicester Square and here's what happened:

«I met Jim on the night of November 15th in the United Kingdom with his Royal Grinch premiere at London's Leicester Square Odeon cinema. I waited 7 hrs to meet him and when he finally did come with Renée he waved to the crowd and walked towards me. I had my video recorder in one hand and filmed everything then I was the first person to shake his hand, it was brill, he also said "Hi, how you doing?" what a brilliant day and well worth the wait, he is such an ace guy and it will not be the last time I see him. Cant wait to watch the movie!!! JIM RULZ!!!!»

Ali also told us to:

«Log on to the Official site of the Grinch Royal Premiere at the following address (http://www.grinchparty.com) where you can view photos on the event, watch videos or join a web chat. All that and more can be viewed by just clicking on the link above.»

Finally Chrissie also found out an interesting article at Empire Online where Jim Carrey gives a few more extra details on why he decided to pass on "Phone Booth". The mag is also announcing a full Grinch special on their site in the next few days.
