In an exclusive interview with Zap2It blog, actress Vivica A. Fox said when she saw the dramatic weight loss photos of her former lover 50 cent, she thought to herself, ” ‘Ooh, he looks like a crackhead.’ [He did a] good job sacrificing.”
Vivica said she knew that Fiddy wasn’t sick or depressed — he was losing weight for a role in a movie in which he plays a football star who’s diagnosed with cancer, and she respects him for it. She said he told her about it after he cast her as his leading lady in his music video for “Do You Think About Me?”
“I was proud of him,” she says. “Because when we were filming the video he told me he was about to go into two, three films he had written and was going to be heavily involved with. I was glad to see him making that transition.
Vivica was also relieved because being in Fiddy’s video meant that all the rumors about the two hating each other would be laid to rest.
“Well, first of all, it was peace to be honest with you,” says Fox. “Because everybody thought for years that we hated each other so much. That couldn’t have been further from the truth. So, it was good to know that publicly he let everyone know we’re cool and that we can work together.
“It was funny, because he wanted me to play the girlfriend that will always be there,” she explains. “I said, ‘No, dude. I want to play the psycho chick. That’s the more fun role.’ And I did it and it was wonderful.”
Vivica is currently involved in a serious relationship with local club promoter, Slimm. I bumped into them at the Georgia Aquarium last weekend and they told me they have a big announcement coming up. Hmmm, I wonder what it is?
