Curtis James Jackson aka 50 Cent has always proven to be so dedicated to his career as a successful rapper and now he proves the same in his career as a movie actor, how is that? Well 50 is portraying a college football player who is dying.
His shocking weight loss from 214 to 160 (54 pounds) he accomplished in nine weeks by taking a liquid diet and walking for three hours on the treadmill, the first picture of 50 when he was down 30 pounds was revealed in March, his pal and fellow rapper Tony Yayo commented on 50’s discipline during his diet.
"50 doesn’t party, he doesn’t drink. For his new film, the guy was, like, 130 pounds. He was running from the airport to the hotel. And I was like, ‘Man, he has the three D’s: desire, determination and [direction].’ " Tony Yayo said.
50 also said that he was starving the whole time, he said that he was supposed to lose 65 pounds, the pictures were taken when he lost 54, check those pictures out here! Wow! I can’t imagine how he would look with another 10 pounds lighter this is way too scary for my taste.
