50 Cent's immature acting
09:30 23 June 2005
50 Cent is finding it difficult acting in his new movie - because he hasn't emotionally matured yet.
The rapper, who is currently filming 'Get Rich Or Die Tryin', says that crying for the cameras does not come naturally to him because when he was in a gang he was used to hide his feelings.
He said: "When I was on the street and someone got killed, we'd go to the wake, pay respects and then we were gone. Emotionally, I am probably five years old."
Meanwhile, 50, real name Curtis Jackson, has vowed never to return to his criminal past dealing drugs.
He said: "As long as I keep myself away from situations that I know will aggravate me to the point that I could possibly do something that ain't healthy for me, I'm happy.
"The only thing I'm afraid of - is me."
Despite, his shady past the hip-hop star insists he is now a good role model for children.
He told MTV.com: "I see myself as a role model. I write about harsh realities - the things that actually go on in the environment that I grew up in. What I say to kids is, 'Watch what I do, not what I say'".
