Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway may have faced her toughest role yet playing a moustachioed lad in a new music video.

In drag, Hathaway stars alongside actresses Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson, of 21 Jump Street, in the clip for Just One of the Guys, an indie-pop single from singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis. 

One minute they are in feminine form, barefoot, wearing cream-coloured suits as they play back-up to Lewis. The next, they are in chavvy tracksuits, flat-brimmed hats, wigs and moustaches.  

The "guys" are by turns coquettish and fierce. 

Hathaway has mock-brooding intensity, and even sheds a tear, in between some very bad breakdancing. Stewart larks about while Larson pumps her fists and sings her heart out. 

The video has already racked up more than half a million views in its first day of release. 

Its antics, plus the song's sweet sing-along chorus, contrast with serious lyrics about ageing and fertility. 

"No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys, there's a little something inside, that won't let me," Lewis croons as she holds a pregnancy test. 

The Voyager, Lewis's first album in six years, is set for US release on July 29.
