50 Cent drops serious weight for movie role


Not one to let Robert De Niro or Christian Bale get all the credit for being serious actors, 50 Cent is showing that he's serious about being an actor by losing something. Something like 54 pounds for his role in a movie, that is. showed off photos of the rapper-cum-actor, who apparently went from 214 pounds to a mere 160 for his role in Things Fall Apart, in which Fiddy portrays a football player who has been diagnosed with cancer. Now he's only 25 Cent.

"I was starving," the rapper says. "I've been eating. I'll be back in shape in no time."

He's already had his tattoos removed, so what's a little weight? Of course, going from a 38 waist to a 32 is something most people want to do. Too bad most people aren't willing to go on a liquid diet and take three-hour treadmill sessions to get there.
