Tupac not only had a successful rap career but he showed serious promise as an actor as well, having appeared in close to 7 films before his untimely death. One film, John Singleton’s Poetic Justice, he co-starred alongside Janet Jackson. Though Pac thought he and Janet were “cool,” he claims that before the two were to film a love scene, Janet’s people requested he take an AIDS test. Pac, insulted, declined. He said that the day after the film wrapped, Janet changed her number.
