The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.

Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
Once in a while, a movie comes along that singlehandedly turns one young actor into a Hollywood icon — and it happened to her. When Alicia Silverstone hit the big screen as the kneesock-loving Cher in 1995's hit comedy, "Clueless," she became a household name overnight. And, while she'll always be the virgin-who-can't-drive to us, Silverstone has spread her thespian wings ever since, most recently with her upcoming comedy, "Butter."
In case you didn't guess it from the title, the flick focuses on the fascinating and cutthroat world of competitive butter carving. Silverstone plays Julie, the adoptive mother of Destiny (Yara Shahidi), an aspiring butter-carving champion.
We chatted with Silverstone about what made her want to be in a movie about butter sculptures, what Rob Corddry is like as a husband and why she felt guilty about her first car purchase. Get More »
Jennifer Garner might have met her match. Her name is Yara Shahidi ... and she's 12 years old.
In the new movie "Butter," Shahidi plays the adoptive daughter of Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry. She also happens to be an aspiring butter carving champion. Hey, you gotta have a dream. Garner, in all her glory, is the woman to beat. May the best butter-carving lady win.
Though Shahidi has already has an impressive resume, which includes "Imagine That" with Eddie Murphy, a guest spot on "Wizards of Waverly Place" and "Salt" opposite Angelina Jolie, "Butter" really lets her show her comedy chops in a fresh way. We sat down with the young star to talk about the fascinating world of butter carving, what it's like working with her brother and why she doesn't think she has it all figured out just yet.

Millions of fans may be eagerly awaiting the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" this November, but, no matter how Twihards might try and protest, it's official: The vampire craze is dead.
And the new trailer for "Vamps" might just be the final wooden stake in the coffin. Get More »
With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »
Butter has kind of been kicked around over the last few years. You know, everybody's trying to eat healthier, watch their cholesterol, that sort of thing. It's really been a sad time for butter enthusiasts.
But that all changes right now thanks to the new trailer for the upcoming comedy "Butter." Because once you get a load of this, the only thing that's going to get clogged is your laugh valve. Get More »
Film stars and fashion go together like a horse and carriage and killer leather riding boots, and while you may live you life in Levi's jeans and Gap tees (no shame in that), you can't help but admire those chosen few who wear next season's styles like they were meant for today.
With "Crazy Stupid Love" hitting DVD and Blu-ray (featuring the ultra-fashionable Mr. Ryan Gosling), we decided it was high time to pay homage to nine movie characters whose personal styles turned the silver screen into the world's biggest runway.

Dating in New York City can be cruel… and being a member of the Extended Life Forms (ELFs) doesn't make it any easier — just ask Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter. This female tag team stars in "Vamps," the latest spin on the vampire genre, which was penned by Amy Hecklering (the scribe behind Silverstone's breakout film "Clueless").
Now, before you gag on the thought of yet another vampire movie, hear us out, because a tale of tenderness and chastity this is not. The story follows this pair of hard partying vampires whose way of life (and immortality) is threatened when they get struck by life's biggest threat: love.
If the "Rocky Horror"-style poster is any indication, this is going to be one tasty vampire romp that may prove, once and for all, that nice girls suck. But don't take our word for it, check out this sexed up vampire story's poster yourself on Hollywood Crush.
We remember Alicia Silverstone having quite the impressive (and expansive) wardrobe in "Clueless," but we didn't remember there being this many costume changes.
It makes you appreciate the costume department of the still-awesome 1995 teen comedy all the more when you see all of Cher's various duds in rapid-fire succession like this. It's even more fun to see it all set to Jill Sobule's "Supermodel." Ah, 1995...
And we had almost forgotten how funny Dan Hedaya is in this movie ("It looks like underwear!"). And Paul Rudd. And... Get More »
Virginity. It's the biggest thing you've ever lost… or will lose (just hang in there).
In some cultures, parents of a new bride will parade her sheets through town to prove the honeymoon night is her first time. Luckily, in America, we opt for our public displays of virginity and the loss thereof to be portrayed fictionally on film.
The latest to join the ranks are this month's "The Virginity Hit" and "Easy A." Get More »
