The shocking photo emerges last week of 50 Cent extreme commitments to his movie role. The rapper lost he weight for a role as a footbool player with cancer in an upcomming movie “Things Fall apart”.
Speaking to Cleveland’s Call and Post about why th movie was worth the sacrafice. “It’s myself, Mario Van Peebles, Ray Liotta, Lynn Whitfield, and it’s a project that I wrote, produced and financed myself,” he said of the film. “It’s about a Heisman hopeful who could possibly be going to the league and everyone is assuming he’s gonna make it, and then he’s hit with an illness. I had a friend of mine who actually experienced cancer, and it’s what motivated me to write this screenplay. You don’t have to make everything personal, but that project was. That’s why I committed to playing a role where I lost 54 pounds. I had to discipline myself enough until I achieved it but … I got it.”
50 finds acting to be a great outlet when he wants to take a break from music.
