That's a rap! Anne Hathaway takes on the paparazzi on 'Conan'

"One Day" star Anne Hathaway has a particularly unique method of venting stress: She likes to channel Lil Wayne.

As Hathaway recounted on "Conan" Tuesday night, getting to play Catwoman in the upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" wasn't without its problems. She was appearing in her dream role, but the paparazzi were making her life on set a nightmare.

"With all the stuff that's been going on with 'Batman,' the paparazzi tend to be a little intense," she told O'Brien. "You can't cuss them out. What's the point? They treat you like less than human. So I make up dirty lyrics about them."

Specifically, a rap. "It's in the style of Lil Wayne," she warned. And then Hathaway went full-out, hand-gestures and all:

After the rap, she joked, "Once again, my need to be a ham has threatened my career."

That's a matter of opinion. Who says Lil Wayne won't be calling up for a duet?
