50 Cent is not only giving to charity, he’s also starving himself for a cause.
In the newly released “unofficial” trailer for his film “Things Fall Apart,” the rapper stars as a high school football player who has dreams of joining the Miami Dolphins, only to learn he has cancer.
The clip showcases 50 Cent’s highly publicized 54-pound weight loss last year, juxtaposing shots of him as a buff football player with dreadlocks with scenes of the actor as a skinny, sweaty shivering patient on a hospital bed.
Fitty, who normally tips the scales at 214 pounds, shocked his fans last May by releasing a photo of himself at a frail 160 pounds after going on a liquid diet and spending three hours a day on the treadmill for nine weeks.
“I was starving,” he revealed on his official website, thisis50.com, at the time.
The 35-year-old musician, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, also removed his arm tattoos for the role.
Directed by Mario Van Peebles and written and produced by 50 Cent, “Things Fall Apart” hits theaters later this year.
