Rapper 50 cent is really getting into his role as a football player who is diagnosed with cancer in the film “Things Fall Apart.” The 34-year-old went on a liquid diet and extreme workout routine and lost over 50 lbs. in just two months, going from 214 to 160 lbs. The Queens, NY native — who also removed his tattoos for the role — posted photos of his new emaciated figure on his Facebook fan page and on his blog Thisis50.com. Share your thoughts, ladies. 50 is not the first actor to undergo drastic weight change for a gig. Jennifer Hudson gained more than 20 lbs. for her Oscar-winning role in “Dreamgirls,” and her “Dreamgirls” co-star Beyonce gained 15 lbs. to play Etta James in “Cadillac Records.”
