Last week, the world was treated to the amazingly entertaining spectacle of "The Dark Knight Rises" star Tom Hardy performing an impromptu version of Krs One's classic track "Hip Hop vs. Rap." And lo, it was awesome.

But while Hardy does get some bonus points for having a baby strapped to his chest, he's hardly the first celebrity to flex his flow for an internet audience. So with that in mind, here's a roundup of some of the hottest (and not so hottest) raps performed by your favorite movie stars.

Because after all, considering how many rappers have gone on to successful film careers, isn't it time for a little reciprocity?

Anne Hathaway

What better place to start our list than with Hardy's own "Dark Knight Rises" co-star? Seriously,can't you just imagine Bane and Catwoman in between takes, comparing freestyle tips and sharing hot beats while a frustrated Batman looks on in envy? »
