Watch Anne Hathaway Channel Lil Wayne in ‘Conan’ Rap [VIDEO]
Anne Hathaway might never get to host the Oscars again, but she could very well have a future in gangster rap.
In an appearance on Tuesday night’s ‘Conan,’ the elegant actress spoke about the negative press she’s been getting surrounding her role as Catwoman in the upcoming ‘Batman’ movie. When Conan asked how she blows off steam, Hathaway said, “The paparazzi attention’s been a little intense. So I actually wrote a rap song about it.”
After explaining her rhymes were “in the style of Lil Wayne,” Hathaway cut loose a swaggering, guttural, rapid-fire rhyme that would put many best-selling artists of the genre to shame, spitting out lyrics like “Yo I’m a paparazzi / I don’t play no Yahtzee,” “I tell the truth about what I see / And sell it to Perez Hilti,” and “Don’t act all hotsy totsy / B*** I know you from Jersey!”
Her hip-hop homage reminded us of another starlet who tried rap — Natalie Portman, whose hard rhymes in a Saturday Night Live Digital Short went mega-viral.
Watch both below, then tell us — who’s a better rapper, Natalie or Anne?
