One of the biggest challenges of working with a bunch of penguins is – well, you might call it cold feet.
The new movie Mr. Popper's Penguins, starring Jim Carrey and Carla Gugino, features the work of eight live penguins (in addition to some CGI penguins), and to accommodate the subarctic creatures, the film set had to be kept between 45 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit – at all times.
"Basically, the set was so cold that I was fighting pneumonia the entire time," Carrey said at a press conference for the film. "I don't even think it's really about the health of the penguins. It's cause they're method [actors]. That's what I found out."
"It was sort of selfish on their part," Gugino remarked.

Jenny McCarthy is newly single and ready to mingle – but not with just anyone.
The actress, writer and TV personality, 38, says experience has made her more picky when it comes to the opposite sex.
"I can't do any celebrities," McCarthy, who most notably dated Jim Carrey, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM morning show Friday. "I need normal folks. I'm officially done [with Hollywood guys]. It was on my bucket list. Maybe I can check that one off my list."

Jim Carrey says the kissing scenes in his latest film, I Love You Phillip Morris, had at least one important thing going for them: Major chemistry.
"I mean, look at the guy. I have to say, he is a great kisser," Carrey, 48, tells Parade of his smooches with costar Ewan McGregor.
That's not to say Carrey – who plays an incarcerated man who falls in love with a fellow inmate – wasn't warned about potential problems with kissing a man.

Jenny McCarthy has figured out the key to a happy relationship with new boyfriend Jason Toohey: honesty – and lots of it.
"I have been so open and truthful in this relationship – it is amazing," she tells PEOPLE at a signing of her new book, Love, Lust & Faking It: The Naked Truth About Sex, Lies and True Romance, Friday at Miami's Epic Hotel.
"If he wants Chinese [food] and I don't, I say it," she says. "If he wants to go out and I want to stay in and watch Dancing with the Stars, I tell him so … Sometimes we both want to play poker and we have a blast at home."
Adds McCarthy, 37, "Our relationship is stronger because of the honesty."

Jenny McCarthy is known for making her life an open book.
True to form, in her newest work, Love, Lust and Faking It: The Naked Truth About Sex, Lies and True Romance, the actress offers her candid, no-holds-barred take on love and sex. But there is one topic that's off-limits in the book: her five-year relationship with Jim Carrey.
"I just have to respect his privacy," she tells PEOPLE. "There were broken hearts on both sides."
Still, she reveals that she learned a lot from the romance. "What I got out of that relationship was a lot about self-love," she says. "It's about being happy."

They were all but inseparable starting in early 2007, but by this past April came the news that Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey were going their separate ways.
While others – including Hugh Hefner, a fan of the former couple's – speculated on what went wrong, Oprah Winfrey is getting right to the heart of the matter by asking McCarthy herself, "Tell me, when did you know it was over? "
In her response that airs on Tuesday's The Oprah Winfrey Show, McCarthy, 37, says, "You know, the simple word I can give – and there's a few, so let me say a few. The first thing is, when it's not fun anymore, you need to start investigating and do an inquiry into the relationship."
