50 Cent Drops 50 Pounds!

 

27 May 2010

Fans all around the world were shocked this week as 50 Cent posted photos of his new, gaunt frame on his website. The dramatic weight loss was for a role in his upcoming film 'Things Fall Apart', about a footballer who is diagnosed with cancer.

The usually muscular rapper dropped down to 160 pounds (72 kilos) by sticking to a liquid diet, and walking 3 hours per day. And while that doesn't sound like any fun to us, 50 Cent was inspired by a friend who had died of cancer, pushing through despite the hunger.

Tony Yayo spoke about his boss' dedication to the role "50 doesn't party, he doesn't drink. For his new film, the guy was, like, 130 pounds," Yayo said. "He was running from the airport to the hotel. And I was like, 'Man, he has the three D's: desire, determination and [direction].' "

Wow! Are you looking forward to seeing the film as much as we are?
