50 Cent dropped weight and removed tattoos for his role of Deon
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, better known as 50 Cent, is a rapper and producer well-known for his tattoos and muscular physique. He abandoned them both for his part as cancer-stricken Deon, a promising college football player.
Fans could not believe it was genuine after seeing the change in his body. Fifty Cent spent nine weeks on a treadmill for three hours each day and eating only liquids. He lost 56 pounds and dropped from 214 to 160 pounds. He also had his arm tattoos removed to save time while applying makeup.
