50 Cent Drops 54 Pounds, We Drop Our Jaws

We guess 50 Cent is really serious about becoming an actor, because the hip-hop star Christian Bale’d himself for his latest movie role. Curtis Jackson dropped 54 lbs. to play a football player with cancer in the upcoming drama Things Fall Apart, basically starving himself on a liquid diet. He’s back on tour and getting back into shape, but for Fiddy’s sake, we hope the movie turns out to be worth the work. If you can stomach the gaunt look, there are a few more shocking photos of his weight loss over at This Is 50 and Rap Radar, courtesy of Us Weekly.
