50 cent or 25 cent. I'm a bit confused people. Look at this picture of him that he posted on the twitter page. omg!! that's scary. He lost this 50 pounds (nearly 25 kg) of massive weight for his role as a cancer diagnosed star high school footballer in the movie "Things Fall Apart". 50 cent - real name Curtis Jackson, the rapper normally weighed 215 lbs. But after the nine weeks on a liquid diet, he's now 160 pounds and appears gaunt. I like the fact that he is very committed to this role.
He said to one of the popular magazines, "I had so much muscle on me that it was hard for me to lose definition even as I got lighter and slimmer. I started running to suppress my appetite. Towards the end it was really difficult. It was like, if I don't get close enough to what my best friend looked like to me at that point before he passed, then I'm not doing the story any justice". After reading this, respect for you 50 cent.
Inspired by De Niro, Hanks and Bale, he told the Associated press, "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."
