In total, 50 Cent lost more than 50 pounds over only nine weeks, falling from a muscular 214 to a skeleton 160 pounds considering his 6 foot height. He lost the weight for a movie role in Things Fall Apart, in which he plays a football player diagnosed with cancer.

50 said this about the above photo:

“Yeah, they’re absolutely real,”
He lost the weight by going on a 9-week liquid diet and working out on a treadmill for three hours a day.
The weight loss was no easy task, and he recognizes the health risks:

“After the second week, it was crazy. They say it takes 30 days to make a habit, but man… I was on the Internet and I was looking at Christian Bale, while The Machinist was out, he almost killed himself. I was feeling like maybe I’m overdoing it and I’m dropping 54 pounds, but I was in such a good physical state prior to me deciding to go down on the weight.”

Despite how unhealthy he looks, at least his motivations are close to his heart:

"My motivation for the project was my best friend, Charles Pringle. He lived across the street from me; he actually died of cancer. It’s a serious topic. One out of eight people in the world die of cancer. It tops HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria together. If you’re not actually gonna die of cancer, chances are someone you’re active with in your life is."

The cast of Things Fall Apart also includes Lynn Whitfield, Mario Van Peebles, and Ray Liotta. 50 Cent is also a co-producer on the film, along with Randall Emmett, his partner in Cheetah Vision Films. For 50 Cent and the sake of his health, let’s hope Things Fall Apart is actually worth watching.

This doesn't look too healthy to me, but $$ talks................. right?

Do you think it’s worth losing that much weight for a role?
