50 Cent looked unrecognizable after losing  over 50 pounds for his role in All Things Fall Apart. The film called for 50 to play a cancer-stricken football player, but upon initial viewing of the photos many people wondered if the rapper-turned-actor was sick for real.  He achieved his transformation in nine weeks with a liquid diet and three hours-a-day workouts.
