Says the Cosby Show star reminds him of third grade teacher.
50 Cent is hot for Mrs. Huxtable! The rapper-turned-actor revealed his crush on the Cosby Show mom when the New York Post asked him about his most influential teacher growing up. "It was my third grade teacher, Miss Johnson," he said. "I had a crush on her because she looked like Phylicia Rashad." 50 said his school boy crush on Rashad only intensified as he watched The Cosby Show. "I fell in love with her," he confesses.
The Get Rich or Die Tryin' rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, will soon star in and executive produce the Sundance Channel docu-drama Dream School. The show helps troubled and bullied teens come out of their shells by sending them to a "dream school" where they can pursue their passions under the guidance of real-life professionals, including politicians, musicians, filmmakers and more.
We're sure Miss Johnson is very proud of her former student!
