When a photo of 50 Cent appeared on the internet last year showing the G-Unit rapper 50 pounds lighter, many were concerned about the rapper’s health. It wasn’t until 50 explained that the extreme weight loss was for a role in a movie that it all began to make sense.
50 Cent lost 50 pounds for his role in the film Things Fall Apart. In the movie, he plays a football player who is dying of cancer. This week, a new photo of 50 Cent on the set of the movie leaked to the internet showing the actor/rapper in a hospital bed.
No release date for the film, which also stars Ray Liotta, has been confirmed.
