Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway have taken on a new challenge by appearing to be convincing Drag Kings as they appear dressed in men's clothes in a music video for the song "Just One of the Guys" by independent artist Jenny Lewis.

Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart of "Twilight" fame star alongside "21 Jump Street" actress in the music video where they dress in men's clothes.

The girls also appear in their natural female form in some parts of the video where they are seen wearing pristine cream coloured suits while barefoot and playing various instruments while pretending to be the back-up band for Jenny Lewis. They also appear to be singing along.

The video then transitions to the actresses wearing adidas track suits, flat bill baseball caps and fake moustaches.  

Hathaway gained critical acclaim for her singing in the musical "Les Miserables" but it's unclear whether or not the actresses' voices were actually used in any way during the recording of the single.

Despite Lewis' sweet voice and comedic theme of the video, the song speaks of more profound thoughts as the "men" that the girls portray some behaviour attributed to men that often cause problems for women such as denying fathering children.

"As far as I can see, there's only one difference between you and me. When I look at myself all I can see,  I'm  just another lady without a baby," Lewis sings. The song also speaks about other typically perceived differences between men and women.

Jenny Lewis is a singer-songwriter and the song "Just One of the Guys" is the carrier single for her album "Voyager" which is set to be released in the US on July 29. Lewis also has numerous acting credits under her name appearing starting from a young age in various TV shows as well as a number of teen-themed films. She has since pursued a musical career and was the vocalist for the band Rilo Kiley.  She now performs as part of a duo with her boyfriend Jonathan Rice or as a solo artist. "Voyager" will be her third album.
