50 Cent has revealed that he was inspired by Christian Bale whilst losing the weight for his new movie.
The rapper turned actor has dropped four stone for his movie Things Fall Apart, in which he takes on the role of an American footballer who is diagnosed with cancer.
Speaking to Rap-Up.com he said: “Yeah, it was a lot for me to actually get there. After the second week, it was crazy.
“They say it takes 30 days to make a habit, but man. I was on the Internet and I was looking at Christian Bale, while The Machinist was out, he almost killed himself.
“I was feeling like maybe I’m overdoing it and I’m dropping 54 pounds, but I was in such a good physical state prior to me deciding to go down on the weight.”50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, was last seen on the big screen in British crime movie Dead Man Running with Danny Dyer and Tamer Hassan.
And the rapper has been busy on the movie front with a string of projects lined up Caught In The Crossfire and 13 are both in post production.
The Dance, Love Me, Love Me Not, The Ski Mask Way and Jekyll and Hyde are all in pre-production.
