Movie Stars Reveal Their Porn Star Names

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 over 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Channing Tatum, Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Salma Hayek, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100+.

Reporting by: Sandie Angulo Chen ("Millie 69"), Robert DeSalvo ("Rocky Waverly"), Claire Donovan ("Spunky Walter"), Elizabeth Durand ("Stephanie Veronica"), Bryan Enk ("Buck Densmore"), Max Evry ("Orion Cedar Crest "), Breanne Heldman ("Krugerrand Ardon"), Jenni Miller ("Mitzi Turtle Creek"), Kevin Polowy ("Sparkle Sterling"), Brandon Rae ("Sammi von Fernway"), Brooke Tarnoff ("Brandy W. Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").

The 15 Worst Accents in Movies Ever

Killing Season Millennium

So many actors have tried, and so many actors have failed. Accents have long proven to be one of the hardest things to hone when it comes to a film role. While Irish seems to be the most challenging of dialects to lock down, there are also other accents — even American — that have yet to be mastered in cinema.

Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents. Get More »

Gerard Butler Cracks a Walnut With His Ass on German Television


As an actor, there are certain things expected of you that maybe aren't expected from your everyday insurance claims adjuster. You have to be on your theatrical game at all times. You can't just be Gerard Butler, for example, you have to be "Gerard Butler" and break out your song and tap dance and "This is Sparta!" talents to entertain the masses every now and then. It's just another part of the gig.

Like when you appear on German television and the host expects you to crack a walnut with your ass and then pour ice down the front of your pants, because it would be funny and it's supposed to be an entertaining television program. That's when you're "Gerard Butler," and indeed, that's when Gerard Butler was "Gerard Butler, Ass Walnut Cracker." Get More »

Gerard Butler to Destroy Robots With His Mind in 'The Raven'

Who needs "300"-style Spartan abs when you can just blow robots up with your telekinetic powers?

That's a question you'll have to ask Gerard Butler, since according to Deadline he and his abs are in negotiations to replace Liam Hemsworth as the lead in Universal's feature version of sci-fi short "The Raven." No relation to that bird crap John Cusack movie of the same name, or the Lou Reed album either.

And, no, it's not the same movie as "The Crow," either. Nice try. Get More »

9 Foreign Actors Who Do the Worst American Accents

Olympus Has Fallen FilmDistrict

People are always complaining about how much Americans suck at doing accents, whether it's Kevin Costner as "Robin Hood" or Keanu Reeves seemingly coming off a heroin addiction in "Bram Stoker's Dracula." And we do suck sometimes, yes.

However, we want to at least even the playing field a little by pointing out some bafflingly bad American accents perpetrated by thesps from overseas. Europe and Australia may have the best acting academies and such, but not every graduate is as versatile as they should be, starting with a certain Gerard Butler from this past weekend's "Olympus Has Fallen."

"Madness? THIS. IS. SPARTA!!"

So did Gerard Butler set a new standard for alpha male-ness in Zack Snyder's epic swords-and-sandals man-fest, "300." And every man has been struggling to reach such seething levels of testosterone ever since.

Hollywood hasn't seemed to know what to do with Butler ever since he rocked Frank Miller's violent, bloody world, banishing him to the catacombs of lame romantic comedies and generic action flicks. It's a good thing he's good-lookin', eh? Check out our collection of pics of the "Olympus Has Fallen" star in movies and on the red carpet.

Olympus Has Fallen FilmDistrict

"Olympus Has Fallen" hits theaters this weekend and if you've seen the trailers, well, it might look just a little familiar to you. Gerard Butler plays a disgraced Secret Service agent who finds himself trapped inside the White House when it's overrun by terrorists. Armed only with courage and, well, a gun, he wages a one-man war to save the President — and America itself.

In other words, it's "Die Hard" in the White House. Get More »
