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.

[From MTV.com] Which celebrity would you most like to "mistakenly" hook up with online? During Sunday's MTV Movie Awards pre-show at 8:30 p.m. ET, Mark Wahlberg, Anna Kendrick and Joe Manganiello fall victim to the first-ever three-way celebrity Catfish, captured by no less than "Catfish: The TV Show" stars Nev Schulman and Max Joseph.
This special installment of "Catfish" — not to mention all our live red-carpet coverage on the Sony Pictures Studio lot — leads up to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards at 9 p.m. Sunday. Watch a sneak peek of the unbelievable case of (multiple!) mistaken identities above, and find more good stuff at MTV.com and the MTV Movie Awards home! Get More »
Shia LaBeouf continues his crusade to not be in movies with giant robots in "The Company You Keep," the Robert Redford-directed thriller in which the past comes a'callin' for a bunch of senior citizens who did something bad back in the day. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Well, he's not going to be in Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel," but maybe Johnny Depp will be in Wally Pfister's "Transcendence." Deadline reports that the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star is in talks to join the feature directorial debut of Christopher Nolan's go-to cinematographer ... the plot of which is, of course, being kept under wraps.
• You know, Bradley Cooper is just about as perfect for a Cameron Crowe movie as, oh, Emma Stone. The "Hangover" star is set to make his already ultra-busy schedule even busier as he's in talks to join the "Amazing Spider-Man" beauty in Crowe's untitled romantic comedy, which is said to be in the vein of "Jerry Maguire" and "Almost Famous."

Anna Kendrick admits that she runs a prostitution ring and drowns kittens in this week's episode of MTV's "After Hours With Josh Horowitz."
When it comes to Anna Kendrick, believe the buzz. The girl is all that and a bag of chips. Girl crush alert!
Chances are, you've been hearing her name a lot lately, and it's no surprise. From "What to Expect When You're Expecting" to "ParaNorman" to "End of Watch," she's had a lot of flicks make way to the cinema this year, and she's not slowing down just yet.
Her latest is the college a cappella competition movie "Pitch Perfect," in which she not only puts her acting chops on the table but also gives her vocal chords some serious exercise. With her sharp wit, self-deprecating sensibility and sheer talent, the girl's going places at lightning speed (she may even be the newest badass of the "Captain America" franchise). Get More »
The singing, dancing and performances by Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and crew aren't the only things perfect in "Pitch Perfect."
You see, the Bellas aren't your typical college a capella group, and aspiring deejay Beca isn't your typical freshman. Once she reluctantly joins the group, she mixes up more than just their music — she takes their style to the next level.
Not unlike the music itself, "Pitch Perfect" is filled with outfits for your everyday life, ones we have to confess we're already trying to snatch up ourselves. Check out the latest Get the Goods to find out which stores we'll be aca-hitting.
One's about a group of girls who are misfits among the misfits — apparently, there is a social hierarchy among glee clubs, and they're at the very bottom — and the other is full of pretty, popular girls with shiny hair and teeth flipping around in cute cheerleader outfits. Both are the kind of movies that, on paper, sound really silly and kind of embarrassing but prove to be incredibly satisfying and fun to watch by yourself or a gang of friends.
Cheerleading and glee club have more in common than you'd think, or, for that matter, than what most high schoolers would like to think. Both are highly competitive activities most people think are a waste of time, but they actually take a lot of practice and talent. Both require matching outfits and strong personalities, which inevitably leads to lots of drama. And, sometimes, these activities lead to injuries and/or projective vomiting. Get More »
Have you ever thought to yourself, "I wish someone would mash 'Heathers' and 'Glee' into one perfect little firebrand of a movie?" Wish no more, because that very movie exists and it is absolutely "Pitch Perfect."
The always-delightful Anna Kendrick plays Becca, the new girl in an all-ladies a cappella group who seeks to update their song roster for the 21st century so they can take on the boys in a no-holds-barred singing competition. Get More »
What does it mean to be cool? It's pretty damn subjective. So when compiling our list of the 25 coolest people making movies right now (somebody had to do it, right?), we accounted for various factors.
These are the actors who not only impress us onscreen (though that helps), but convey a certain genuineness off it, be it at awards shows, on TV appearances or during our own personal experiences interviewing them. They can be multi-talents, also excelling at music, art or writing. And they can make a habit of turning up in hilarious viral videos or even at your local karaoke bar.
But most of all, these are the 25 actors we'd really just like to sit down and have a beer with.
Welcome to NextMovie's 1st annual Cool List – and let us know who makes your own list in the comments section below. Get More »
