Rapper-turned-actor 50 Cent made an embarrassing blunder at the premiere of his latest movie by forgetting the name of a previous co-worker, director Joel Schumacher.
The hip-hop star appears with Chace Crawford and Kiefer Sutherland in new film Twelve, which is directed by the Flatliners moviemaker.
But at the New York premiere of another film, Gun, the rapper drew a blank when reporters asked him about directors he's worked with.
He tells the New York Daily News, "I've always surrounded myself with great directors like Jim Sheridan, Irwin Winkler, Jon Avnet... Why can't I think of their names? This is the kind of stuff that'll get you kicked out of the film business - when you don't remember everybody's name. They're going to come out and say, 'You take your a** back to rapping, 50!'"
