3) Gwynyth Paltrow

Perhaps one of the more surprising actresses who showed off her skills in the rap world was fellow Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow. The Iron Man star stunned the audience when she appeared on 'The Graham Norton Show' in 2011, when the star showed her love for the West Coast by rapping a section of N.W.A’s breakthrough track ‘Straight Outta Compton.’

With actor Geoffrey Rush and comedian Jason Byrne (sort of) providing the backing music, the performance showed that rapping is 'Nothing But A G Thing' for Gwyneth.

4) Natalie Portman

While 'Saturday Night Live' has brought us some memorable sketches over the years, one of the most surprising featured Black Swan actress Natalie Portman revealing some of the more… errr… unexpected aspects of her ‘private life.’

Casting aside her sweet, wholesome image by portraying herself as a violent thug, the Oscar winner raps with The Lonely Island in between a fake interview about her status as a role model - hilarity (and profanity) ensues.

5) Emma Stone

Okay, technically the Amazing Spiderman actress was miming for this one, but to be able to lip-sync DJ Khaled’s star-studded track ‘All I Do Is Win’ as convincingly (and aggressively) as Emma Stone did on her appearance on 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon' earlier this year is no mean feat.

The actress was declared the winner of the show's lip-sync battle ahead of the funnyman host following her fast-paced rendition of the song. Similarly, it is worth checking out other heroic lip-sync rap performances from the show by Sin City 2 star Joseph Gordon Levitt (miming Nikki Minaj’s ‘Superbass’) and British comedian Stephen Merchant (Fresh Prince - ‘Boom Shake The Room’).
