Anne Hathaway spits rhymes Lil Wayne-style on 'Conan'

Last night on Conan, Anne Hathaway proved she’s got Weezy’s swagger down pat (call her s–t Patricia?) by throwing down a rap about her frustration with the guerrilla cameramen stalking the Dark Knight Rises set in Pittsburgh.

“With all the stuff that’s been going on with Batman, the paparazzi attention’s been a little intense. So I actually wrote a rap song about it,” Hathaway told Conan O’Brien. “It’s in the style of Lil Wayne.”

Hathaway then proceeded to spit verses in true throaty, straight-faced Lil Wayne form — and then quickly snapped out of it, finishing off the performance with a dazzling smile and a ladylike giggle.

Has Anne got Tunechi’s raspy rattle mastered? Watch below and decide for yourself:

Give us your thoughts, PopWatchers: Will Anne Hathaway follow in the hallowed footsteps of Joaquin Phoenix and Shaq by branching out into hip-hop?

    Natalie Portman rapping > Anne Hathaway rapping.

    • Holla

      NOT rapping >>>>> rapping.

      • BATMAN

        ugh, not a fan of either. I have a bad feeling that the next Batman will stink and Anne will be a reason why. I also hope she will not portray Judy Garland in the upcoming biopic, Judy deserves better

      Anne Hathaway’s singing > Natalie Portman’s singing.

    • LOL

      GOP fears Anne Hathaway.

  • Michael

    I love her but I wasn’t expecting this to be so good and fun! I was ready to cringe.

    Can’t wait to see “One Day” this weekend!

  • Karl Bourbon

    Anne is lovely, gorgeous, sexy and beautiful. I love her. She’s a really sweet girl.

    • Jeff

      Will you keep loving her when you find out she was smoking some Italian’s pole for the better part of four years?

      • @Jeff

        You mean…She’s a sexually active adult who was in a relationship? Noooooooooo!!!!

      • ripsaa

        criminal italian pole to be exact

      • Fender

        Criminal Italian Pole? That’s be a great name for an indie band.

        “Tomorrow night on Conan…”

    • jen

      lovely, gorgeous, sexy and beautiful, and available for birthday parties

  • OCC

    no one cares…

    • Bob

      Then why did u watch or check out the article?


        Becaue I like to read about people who annoy me.

  • Tucker

    When you do that with movies like Robert Downey Jr. said about The Dark Knight and Inception, and when you do things like that about a man like Christopher Nolan – I’ve kept really quiet, but I’ll tell you something, he went down in my estimation when he said that – we have not resorted to that. But I’ll tell you – we’re still fighting for box office supremacy, and The Avengers has to compete with The Dark Knight Rises next year and get something, and I tell you honestly, I will love it if The Dark Knight Rises outgrosses The Avengers, I will love it if we beat them, love it!

    • Ash

      Lay off the meds, sweetie

    • @Tucker

      What? Your incoherent rank makes absolutely no sense.

    • Emma

      I’m very confused as well. Huh?

    • Schwah

      Tucker… not much overlap between fans of starlets rapping on EW and fans of rants by crazed English football (soccer) managers in the mid-90’s. But you got a chuckle out of me even if that was a complete non sequitar. Everyone else, google Kevin Keegan and “I will love it if we beat them.” COME ON YOU SPURS!

      • EK

        A fellow spurs fan! Thanks for clarifying what that rant was referring to.

    • Tucker 2

      When you do movies with Rachel’s Wedding like Nick Nolte commented on The Smurfs and Garfield 2, and when you eat things with like that kind of woman like Ellen Paige- I’ve said nothing, but now I’ll say she lost all credibillity in my eyes and ears – it has forced us into that situation. But listen to me – we will never stop attacking Joss Whedon, and his movie has to go against other movies next decade and get stuff, and I explain to you truthfully, I will reach the highest point of ecstasy if Garfield 3 outgrosses Smurfs 2, I will explode all over, explode!

      • Tucker3

        The thing most people don’t know about The Dark Knight was that hidden scene. I’ll never forget it because it matched Rise of the Planet of the Apes but let’s not get too carried away with what James Franco said because I really can relate to that. That Chris Evans, though, boy oh boy…I no longer take him seriously. Captain America will be in The Avengers next summer maybe that will make a difference…I hope. Chris Hemsworth might be dropping out though…that’s the last thing I heard but it could be a rumor. When The Hobbit is released you just wait and see…Guilermo Del Toro might be in for a run for the money or maybe the border. Just mark my words…trust me!

      • Reality

        Hey, Tucker3 . . . Avengers is already half-shot and Hemsworth is in the teaser trailer. Good work there, Sherlock. And Del Toro has been out of The Hobbit for a year; Jackson started shooting it months ago. Were YOU frozen in ice?

      • alan of montreal

        @Reality–I believe that Tucker 2 and Tucker3 are engaging in what is known to intelligent folk as “sarcasm”

      • Stephen Hawking

        –or perhaps “parody” of Tucker’s comment.

    • Elizabeth

      “We”? I looked up your name in IMDB and didn’t see it…

  • anna

    I wish I liked her more but she just tries SO hard that it puts me off.

    • MMM

      +1 She needs to go back to being herself, wipe that constant look of incredulity off of her face, and act like someone over the age of 8.

    • same here

      I thought I was the only one who observed this too…..

    • same here if to say “look at me..I can act dammit!!!

      • jules


    • Amy

      Natalie Portman’s rap was so much better.

      I always thought Anne Hathaway tried too hard, which was exemplified at the Oscars.

    • Just A Guy

      I anxiously await a Lea Michele/Anne Hathaway fight to the death.

    • Jeremy DC

      That was perfectly put. I know most don’t agree but those are my exact thoughts of her.

  • Sam S.

    One Day must be tracking pretty poorly.

    • Ben

      To Sam S; One Day is bombing like a B-52 with the critics. It’s got a 36% approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes. It got a C- from EW. Casting Anne Hathaway in a role that should have gone to more qualifed British Actress is one of the reasons the film is getting bad reviews. It will probably come and go this weekend with hardly anyone paying money to see it, and then go directly to the video store. and wind up in the $5 bin at Wal-Mart before too long.

  • Teuta

    It doesn’t seem like she put on weight to play Selina Kyle with an ample cleavage, fuller legs and fuller backside. In the comic books, Selina has huge boobs with nice, womanly curves.

    • Alex

      I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but in comics, most women have huge breasts.

      • Reality

        But Catwoman in particular.

      • Alex

        Power Girl, Storm, Rogue, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn. Any character drawn by J. Scott Campbell. The list goes on.

    • M-ro

      Hey Weirdo, it s comic book…

    • Just A Guy

      I’m disappointed that the people who have portrayed Superman aren’t actually bulletproof.

      • Liz

        HA! Made me laugh! Thanks.

    • erin

      Uh, when was the last time you saw someone with “womanly curves” in a Hollywood movie? Keep dreaming…

  • Total Yinzer

    Here is the thing about Anne Hathaway and filming in Pittsburgh. I’m from Pittsburgh and I work downtown and I’ve walked around the sets. There are paparazzi everywhere, but it’s no different than any other movie. I just saw pictures of her the other day walking her dog somewhere around here and you could tell she was screaming at them (paprazzi) in the photos. How about stopping and just letting them get a few shots? Remember, this is the life you have chosen for yourself. You opted to become an actress and have the media follow you everywhere just like the paprazzi opted to take pictures for a living. You also decided to take on this role. NO ONE FORCED YOU TO BECOME FAMOUS. No one forced you to play catwoman. Of course there is going to be paparazzi everywhere. Sure, some paparazzi are obnoxious and I understand that they go to far to get pictures sometimes, but honestly wtf do you expect?

    • Michael

      I don’t understand how anyone can stick up for the paparazzi. Of course she knows that because she’s an actress she will get media attention, but the paparazzi are something entirely different.

      • Total Yinzer

        @Michael, I was not sticking up for the paprazzi. Like i said, some pap’s are obnoxious. I was just stating that she shouldn’t complain about something she knew came with the job.

      • Captain

        That’s not exactly fair. The level of media attention someone like Britney Spears gets where she can’t even drive her car because she’s so swarmed with photogs, is completely different than the attention a B-level actress gets. It’s not like everyone who goes into acting knows they’ll be swarmed by paps.

      • Stephen Hawking

        One can’t complain about something that comes with the job? That’s a hard standard for anyone in any job to adhere to.

    • xs

      You can’t just “decide to become famous” the public decides that ya Yinzer.

    • ol

      Disagree. Just because it “comes with the territory” does not make it right and she has every right to complain about paparazzi. By your argument, that means if someone becomes a waitress/waiter, they know that rude and belligerent customers come with the territory. If a customer behaves very badly and inappropriately to the waitress, they should suck it up and let them abuse them and not complain about it because hey, that comes with the territory. If she was complaining about giving interviews, the photogs at entertainment events, then I would agree, but the paparazzi are leeches that stalk her during her “private” time! Big difference.

      • Captain

        Amen. When they’re running you off the road and breaking into your house, you have every right to complain.

    • Not a Yinzer

      I know it’s hard to grasp, but actors are actually working and doing a job. They are already set photographers there. Paparazzi are extremely aggressive and have no boundaries. Now shaddup and go eat your sammich.

  • Javadude54

    That was cool.

  • harry


  • miggietomgirl

    That was awesome.

  • Newt

    That was surprisingly unattractive, even coming out of Anne Hathaway.

  • dj

    she is such a hottie!!!

  • Boof

    I thinks she’s both sexy and talented, which is unusual these days.

    • LOL

      Anne rapping > any rap currently on radio
