WATCH: Emma Watson Beatboxes for Feminism "These are the lengths I go to for gender equality!"

Emma Watson showed off her hip-hop skills in a new video by beatboxing as Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda spouted a feminist freestyle rap.

The former Harry Potter star and United Nations Women's Global Goodwill Ambassador interviewed the actor/composer as part of the organization's HeForShe Arts Week, which was set up to encourage arts and cultural organizations to get involved in the fight for gender equality.

While the two discussed everything from the importance of female storytellers to the strong women featured in Lin's Grammy-winning musical, they had a little fun when Emma offered to sort America's founding fathers into the Hogwarts houses from the Harry Potter films.

And the odd couple ended the conversation with the actress asking the fresstyle expert to make up a rap on the spot with the theme of gender equality. Lin only agreed to do so if Emma provided the beats, leaving the actress flustered, and saying, "This is going to be so bad. Do I cover my mouth? This is going to be so embarrassing."

After a few hesitant false starts, Emma finally gave him a respectable beat, as Lin rapped.

Emma finished with a flushed face and exclaimed, "I am so embarrassed right now. I'm literally the color of a tomato. Everyone go see the play and no one ever ask me to beatbox again. These are the lengths I go to for gender equality!"
