So This Happened: Anne Hathaway Rapping About Paparazzi On Conan

Ever since it was announced that Anne Hathaway would be playing Catwoman in the “The Dark Knight Rises,” I’ve gone back and forth in my head over how I should feel about it. To me, Catwoman is supposed to just ooze sex, like Michelle Pfeiffer did back when she took on the role, right? Right? I mean, I love Anne Hathaway, she’s a solid actress and a very pretty lady, but she’s not someone I tend to think of when I think of actresses I’d like to have dirty, nasty, forbidden sex with — and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.

I also have trouble imagining Hathaway taking down dudes — she’s just too nice. Mila Kunis, for instance, I could believe as an ass-kicker, and she also has the sexpot thing going on as well. Anne Hathaway is the sweet girl you want to marry much more than she is the girl you want f*ck, and I think Catwoman needs to be played by the dangerous girl you want to f*ck. But maybe she’ll prove me wrong and wow me with her previously unrevealed feline sexiness/asskicking prowess.

Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, the new Catwoman was on Conan last night talking about a range of things, but also channeled her inner Gwyneth Paltrow at one point and rapped about being harassed by paparazzi. If Conan’s set-up to the bit is to be believed, Hathaway regularly pens raps to vent her frustration over the things that suck in her life. Um, yeah.

Okay, so this — lily white movie stars trying to channel their inner Lil Wayne and Jay-Z on talk shows — needs to stop yesterday. It’s not really that funny, and it’s kind of obnoxious. But I’ll let you be your own judge — Conan’s full interview with Hathaway is embedded below, while her turn as a rapper is embedded above in a shorter clip.
