These days, fat celebrities are a pretty rare thing. Hollywood seems obsessed with the slender and the skinny and consequently, those carrying a little extra chub are expected to shed the pounds in order to meet societal expectations or just to play a part in a movie. Here are some of the most dramatic weight loss experiences in show business, some for the better, some not so much.
1. 50 Cent
50 Cent’s dramatic weight loss was not a fashion choice but rather an extreme measure to get in character for his role in the movie All Things Fall Apart in which he played Deon, a cancer sufferer. Thankfully however, he is back to looking his muscle toned best, something that is sure to delight his legions of female fans.
