Actress Joy Bryant got so close to 50 CENT on the set of new movie GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN' the rapper let her feel the bullet lodged in his tongue.

The IN DA CLUB hitmaker, who was famously shot nine times and lived to tell the tale, stars in the Jim Sheridan film, with Bryant as his love interest.

And the actress was thrilled when the rapper insisted she touch his tongue.

She says, "It's a trip; there's a bullet in his tongue. We were having dinner, and he was like, 'You want to feel?' And he stuck my finger in his mouth.

"I mean, he is definitely walking around with scars that he can't help but see and feel every day."
