Anne Hathaway is currently out promoting her new romance One Day, in which she plays a prim and modest English woman who falls in love with Jim Sturgess over the course of 20 years. It's a prestigious, lovely movie, but that doesn't mean she can't borrow a few tricks from Lil' Wayne to get it some attention. On Conan last night, Hathaway dropped a very loud, very energetic rap about her experience working with the paparazzi on The Dark Knight Rises. Anyone who's seen her on the Oscars knows she can sing, but this is taking it to another level. You really have no choice but to watch it below.
One of the things I like about Hathaway, even when she's making crap movies like Bride Wars or Get Smart, is that she throws herself into anything she's doing, like some real-life version of Glee's Rachel Berry. God only knows how long she worked on getting that rap together, or how many writers helped her do it, but it all relies on the performance to sell it, and she totally brings it home. She's spent nearly a decade-long career playing off her princessy looks and doing silly things to get laughs, but this clip proves it's a formula that still works. Sadly you won't see any similar comedic stylings in One Day, but it is a funny and charming movie in other ways, so if this clip reminds you that you like Hathaway after all, you might want to check it out anyway.
