It’s been a while since we’ve seen 50 Cent in any music videos or making news headlines but yesterday Thisis50.com released a recent picture of the famous rapper on their website and holy shit…when did 50 cent looked like 5 cents? Apparently, this is all just for his new movie Things Fall Apart where he plays a football player diagnosed with cancer.
He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks.
“I was starving.” Now he’s back on tour and says, “I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time!”
So basically he pulled a Christian Bale for a role. Well it looks like he’s taking his acting career seriously. Since we’re on the topic of singers turned actors on a hardcore weight program, when is anyone casting Kelly Clarkson in a movie? The producers of Shrek should give it a thought.
