50 Cent Movie Weight Loss – How He Did It?


50 Cent has had the media and fans alike going crazy over recent pictures he posted of himself 50+ pounds skinnier than what everyone is used to seeing. The reason for the weight loss comes as the rapper turned entrepreneur started filming a role as a cancer patient for ‘Things Fall Apart.’ He is playing the role in tribute to a friend who died of the disease.

50 is on tour and has already started to gain the weight back, currently at 198 pounds.

The rapper, who plays a football player with cancer in the upcoming film dropped from 214 pounds to 160 in nine weeks after liquid dieting and running on a treadmill three hours a day. Sounds like a difficult lifestyle to get used to but interestingly enough, not for 50. The 33-year-old said that when he was shot in the jaw in 2000, he could drink only liquids and his weight dropped to 157.

“This time it was a lot tougher for me,” the hip-hop mogul said in an interview Friday with the Associated Press. “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 previously 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 this 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.”
