Anne Hathaway can act, sing… and rap.

The One Day actress said on TBS' Conan Tuesday that she made up a rap to "vent anger" about the paparazzi trailing her as she films The Dark Knight Rises. She plays catwoman.

"I just started doing it," she says of rapping. "The paparazzi attention has been a little intense."

Her song (watch below) is "in the style of Lil Wayne. He recently wrote a love song called 'How to Love.' It's really beautiful."

When it was done, Hathaway quipped, "Once again, my need to be a ham has threatened my career," presumably referring to her stint as Oscar host (alongside James Franco) earlier this year, which earned mixed reviews.

Hathaway says of the paparazzi, "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."
