Actor/rapper 50 Cent was here to talk about his role in the new movie Twelve. He plays a ruthless drug dealer who’s been dealing to prep-school kids from New York’s Upper East Side. 50 Cent told us what it was like to play a role that he once played in real life — that of a dealer. Recently, 50 made headlines when an unrecognizable photo of him was released and people were worried that he was ill. He told us today that the reason he lost all that weight (see photo below & The View below)  was for another upcoming film.  Twelve is in theaters now.

50 Cent is serious about his side hustle as an actor.

It was previously reported that Curtis was going to lose 60 pounds for a role in the filmThings Fall Apart about a football player with cancer. Apparently 50 stopped at the 50 pound mark, going from a size 38 waist to size 32 after going on a liquid diet and walking on a treadmill for 3 hours a day.

UPDATE: For those of you in the comments wondering about where 50’s tats went, let us remind you that 50 stated awhile ago that he was getting most of them removed.
