50 Loses Mad Weight

50 Cent Drastically Loses Weight For Movie

Hey folks,

50 Cent has recently posted pictures of himself having lost over 50 pounds! The reason: 50 started filming a role as a cancer patient for his movie, Things Fall Apart. He is playing the role in tribute to a friend who died of the disease.

50 plays a football player with cancer in film and went from 214 pounds to 160 in nine weeks after liquid dieting and running on a treadmill three hours a day. "I had to discipline myself not ... to actually have myself be in the physical state to convey the energy I felt. It's a passion project for me."

In order to help him get through the weight loss, 50 looked to other actors who had gone through drastic weight loss for a film. Robert De Niro, Christian Bale, Tom Hanks and Renee Zellweger are among actors known for going through the process. "I actually got on the computer, when it started getting difficult, I was looking to see what their experience was like and I got a chance to see all of the interviews they had at different time periods when they were doing promotion for the projects."
