Catwoman's claws are most definitely out.

Think Anne Hathaway is all wide-eyed sweetness, light and poise? Well, she is. But she's also got a hard-core rapper lingering deep inside her, and she let it out (and how!) on Conan last night.

While discussing the prying lens and smack-talking mouths that are part and parcel of the particularly aggressive batch of paparazzi that have descended on The Dark Knight Rises' location shoots this summer, Hathaway revealed that she has a unique coping method to deal with the barrage of harassment she endures on-set.

And, well, you're gonna have to see it to believe it.

"You like to make up a song to vent your anger?" Conan O'Brien asked.

"With all the stuff that's going on with Batman, the paparazzi attention's been a little intense, so I actually wrote a rap song about it," she said, drawing laughs from the crowd.

"It's in the style of Lil Wayne. He recently wrote a love song…it's really beautiful. And I thought, if he can play with expectations, maybe I can, too."

Consider that done. Hathaway then launched into a hilarious and increasingly, um, intense rap about the stalkerazzi that's infested the set.

Once she finished channeling her inner gangster rapper, she reverted back to the blushing, self-deprecating Anne we're more familiar with.

"And once again, my need to be a ham has just threatened my career," she said.

Actually, we think she just extended it.

"You can't cuss them out or anything," she explained after the song. "They treat you like less than human, so you might as well write dirty lyrics about them."

Now this is a beef we can get behind.
