â€œI’m now 210lbs. I was a little fat boy, but I’m back at the gym. At my maximum weight I was 214.â€
The rapper-turned-actor dropped 50 pounds for a movie role, and he’s looking less like a bag of bones now that filming has finished.
50 CENT dropped a bunch of weight for his Things Pall Apart role a few months back, and now that filming has finished, the rapper has packed on some pounds. Now he’s looking happier — and healthier.
He explained: â€œIt’s the art of eating. The no complex route. It seems everything that is fun is no good for you. I had different things I don’t usually have in my diet to put the weight back.â€
He continued: â€œI’m now 210lbs. I was a little fat boy, but I’m back at the gym. At my maximum weight I was 214.â€
In the movie, 50 Cent – real name Curtis Jackson – plays an American football player diagnosed with cancer and he slashed his weight from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for the role.
Shocking pictures posted on his website were captioned with the details of his weight loss. The caption read: “50 Cent lost a lot of weight for his upcoming movie Things Fall Apart. In the movie 50 Cent plays a football player diagnosed with cancer.”
The “Candy Shop” hitmaker canâ€™t wait until the movie comes out because he thinks his performance is fantastic. He said: â€œI think the film project is going to be great, not just the transformation and the weight loss but my performance in itself. I’m excited to see it.â€
