50 Cent or The Black Powder?
Don’t be alarmed. This isn’t a photo of my alcoholic Uncle Eddie after knocking back one too many cups of eggnog at the annual family Christmas party. (Although the resemblance is striking….)

Curtis is taking this thespian thing very seriously. 50 lost almost 60 pounds to portray a promising college football player suddenly diagnosed with cancer in the upcoming box office drama Things Fall Apart. The “In Da Club” star dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill workouts for nine weeks.
