50 Cent loses 60 pounds for role

I write this blog because people in our newsroom haven't stopped talking about it.

50 Cent has shed 60 pounds to play the role of a cancer patient in a movie he wrote himself.

I don't know a lot about 50 Cent's (Curtis Jackson's) usual size, other than he's extremely muscular, but I've read today that he's usually the size of a linebacker.

So how did he do it? A liquid diet and three hours a day on a treadmill, Entertainment Weekly reports.

He went from 240 pounds to 160 pounds.

The movie, Things Fall Apart, is about a college football player who is diagnosed with cancer. There's no word on whether this movie will hit theaters. But I imagine this picture posted on 50's Twitter, Facebook, and his own website is helping generate buzz.

Do you want to see it now?
