No, that ain’t Pookie from New Jack City 2, it’s 50 Cent!
But don’t freak out. According to xxlmag.com:
50 dropped the weight for a role in the upcoming film Things Fall Apart in which he plays a football player who’s been diagnosed with cancer. He lost over 50 pounds to get into character.
Over a period of nine weeks the G-Unit general stuck to a strict liquid diet and a three-hour-a-day treadmill walk regimen to drop down to 160 pounds.
I hope his movie does well, for his sake. I know I wouldn’t wanna walk around looking like DMX’s crackhead brother just for a direct-to-DVD movie.
Anybody else suddenly have the urge to play Street Fighter 4?
