50 Cent: Skinny Scary for New Movie Role!

Check out these new pics of the super slimmed down 50 Cent while he was shooting upcoming movie, Things Fall Apart.

The 34-year-old actor plays a football player diagnosed with cancer.

50 Cent dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks. Wow! “I was starving,” he admitted.

Now he’s back on tour and performing, 50 says, “I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time!”

  • Saudia

    Wow.. that is dedication. @nirvanic: he does look like DMX .. I hope he doesn’t end up sick after this geez!

  • yo sista

  • Donovan

    He better be a good actor! It’d be ashamed to do all that and suck.

  • just wow

    wow

  • callmewhatever

    It better be a good movie but like you all said, I do appreciate his dedication. I always liked his personality whenever I see him in interviews, dont care for his music however.

  • dollhouse

    I don’t normally care for rappers trying to be actors, but this is dedication. I commend him for his effort and I hope he gets recognized for it in some way.

  • MAxA

    Great way to fcuk up your health. Hope the check is worth it.

  • Michelle

    I used to dislike 50 Cent, but ever since I saw an interview he did on Craig Ferguson, I’ve really admired him! He’s so much more dedicated than people realize. And he’s hilarious, too! Who would’ve thought?!

  • [marie]

    He better be good.. I’d hate to see him put all this work in losing weight and not a good performance…

  • fran

    SCARY….

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    “50 Cent: Skinny Scary for New Movie Role” …so corny. ahahahahahaa..

  • Gabby

    Now that’s just freaky. Talk about dedication. He doesn’t even look like the same person.

  • Lillie

    he looks like those things from I AM LEGEND!

  • Phie

    Is this the movie he decided to laser his tattoos away for? Very, very dedicated.

  • KH

    going to far

  • Nic

    Woah, did not recognize the man!

    Well i wish him all the best, if he is willing to go to extremes fo rhte role he must feel its worth it, i hope hei s smart about it, damn!

  • Alyson

    Lillie, I was thinking the SAME thing! Creepy looking.

  • jaye

    That’s stupidity, not dedication. He was starving himself; his body and mind and exercising too much. . He’s lucky he didn’t have a heart attack. The next stupid thing would be gaining the weight back too fast and by eating the wrong foods.

  • ++Logan++

    Yes that is amazing dedication. When reese witherspoon puts on 50 pounds for a movie no one says anything.

    He might actually suprise us all.

  • http://j ivanka

    @Lillie: yeeeeees

  • nessi

    wow i hope he does good in this film and hopes he gets some awards

  • Mike

    I hope he gains weight/muscle quickly. Those pictures are scary. He honestly looks like he is dying.

  • Philips

    Where are tattoos ?

  • Jasmine

    I don’t know how good of an actor he is, and I laughed at news of him trying to become one but this? This is impressive. That takes serious dedication. Props to him for that, it couldn’t have been easy!

  • T pain

    Woah……

  • AutumnM

    Wow, what a transformation! I also hope 50 will be great in the role. I’ve always liked his personality.

  • Reta

    If he wants to be taken seriously as an actor, he should drop the stupid nickname and be known by his real, given name. Time to grown up.

  • Jokergurl

    This guy is just tough, he was shot nine times and survived. I don’t think you have to worry about him getting back into shape. He has charisma, I hope he keeps up with the acting and of course the music. At least he didn’t pull a “Christian Bale” slim down like for the Machinist, YIKES!

  • jdub

    it’s like when Christian Bale lost all that weight for a movie…i hope the movie is good

  • Lean

    He looks kind of scary. I like the fuller looking 50.

  • Sassy

    wow

  • Jay

    thumb up 50 I almost dint recognize him

  • sam

    THANKS FOR SHARING THE DIET…JUST THE ADVICE I NEEDED..
    THIS IS WHY MEN ARE SO DIFFERNT THAN WOMEN

  • Max

    You shouldn’t do anything extreme to your body like that.

  • iamAWESOME

    i hope this doesn’t inspire anorexic lil btches..

  • Wes

    Wow!! I hope this movie is amazing!!!

  • yeah

    Would not have recognized him if the article wouldn’t have specified it was him… I do think it’s dedication though, bad or good that’s his business.

  • lee

    EWWWW… lets see if he can act now…

  • KC

    WOW that is some impressive dedication! I don’t think I could do that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/serenityspace Yelekal

    this is not dedication…..but its some type of obsession with fame and can be serious and deadly problem…..50 not smart thing to do i don’t think its healthy man.. u have enough money bro just pry for more years to be added to your life so u can enjoy what u have…instead of killing yourself for what u don’t have and trying to gain.

  • http://Yahoo.com Persia

    Wow! i was so shocked to see this. hope he gains it all back and the movie is good! this is a major sacrifice!

  • Shakirakitten

    Fifty is so amazing. I am a white woman in my fifties and I love him, his music and his style. He has just displayed another part of his character that makes him even more attractive and that is dedication to his art. Amazing transformation and such a risk taker. LOVE IT!

  • Reexy

    hope he gets better, i understand its for the movie but this can also be deadly, he has a kid to think about, and i also hope he gains it back after because he looks horrible, i still love the guy, im proud that he’s landing roles and all, but got damn..

  • Reexy

    hope he gets better, i understand its for the movie but this can also be deadly, he has a kid to think about, and i also hope he gains it back after because he looks horrible, i still love the guy, im proud that he’s landing roles and all, but got damn..

  • Katie n

    How tall is he? Because I am 160 and looks nowhere near scary thin as he is. Must be many inches over 6 feet or it got to be lot less pounds than 160.
