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").
Before this, all we had was that hellishly vague synopsis which read, "This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off."
Thanks to the new vid, though, a couple of things are now clear. Get More »
Sometimes, two ladies make out with each other in major motion pictures. Other times, they not only make out with each other — they simulate sexual intercourse with each other. AND because the Internet exists, each of those instances is easily accessible to everybody with a computer, context-free. I know, right? And some people claim to be "pessimists?" (laughs to himself.)

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• James Franco continues to provide evidence that he lives in a world where there are more than 24 hours in a day. According to Deadline, the crazy busy thespian has added "The Grace That Keeps This World" to his insane schedule, a family drama co-starring Brit Marling and Glenn Close that follows a father and his sons as they prepare for the upcoming hunting season.
• Michelle Williams, whom we haven't seen on the big screen since "My Week With Marilyn," is in talks to star in "Suite Francaise" for English director Saul Dibb ("The Duchess"). Williams would be playing, according to Variety, "a spirited young woman in occupied France who falls for a German officer and must choose between love and her country." She'll probably find a way to choose both.
• The con is on with Ben Affleck! Deadline reports that the "Argo" man is in talks to star in "Focus," the tale of a grifter who falls in love with a female up-and-comer — a recipe for heartbreak when one's in the business of cheating and lying. Get More »
With soccer moms now taking pole dancing aerobics at the Y, it’s safe to say that stripping (not to mention its costumed cousin, burlesque) has seduced mainstream America ... for better or worse.
However, for every relatively whimsical look at the profession ("The Full Monty," "Sin City"), there seems to be at least two darker examinations. In the case of "About Cherry," which has commenced with putting on a show in theaters as of today, sometimes working in a strip club can lead to stripping (and doing other stuff) on a porn set ... and a dubious romance with a coke-addicted lawyer (James Franco).
Still, whether their stories are super-serious or all in good fun, movie strippers certainly provide the eye candy along with a sense of intriguing, unattainable mystery. Here are 15 of our favorite on-screen adult entertainers. Get More »
Heather Graham first skated into our hearts as Rollergirl in that little late-'90s drama, "Boogie Nights," which pretty much cemented her place in cinema history. But we have to admit, even though Graham has built an impressive resume of awesome flicks ("The Hangover," anyone?), we're jazzed that she's returning to the world of… ahem… adult film for her upcoming drama, "About Cherry."
This time, however, Graham's the one behind the camera (in the movie, that is), playing a female porn director who knows what she — and, presumably other women — want. She chatted us up about exactly how she prepared for this role, what she learned about her own personal tastes and why she gets a little concerned when young actresses get really happy. Get More »
"500 dollars is an awful lot of money for lying around in your underwear."
It's an at least semi-convincing argument for pursuing a career as an adult film model, and it's the only line that's said with something resembling passion and conviction in the trailer for "Cherry," director Stephen Elliott's mumblecore expose of the porn industry. Get More »
The time is right for '90s nostalgia to be kicking in, and Doug Limon's hilarious 1996 indie sensation "Swingers," making its Blu-ray debut at last, is the guy comedy to revisit. Written by Jon Favreau as a semi-autobiographical account of looking for work and navigating the Los Angeles hipster scene, "Swingers" gave Vince Vaughn his breakout role and paved the way for Favreau to direct blockbuster movies like the "Iron Man" films and "Cowboys & Aliens."
Before Favreau and Vaughn got "all grown up" on us, the two played best buds trying to make it big in Hollywood in the '90s. Favreau is Mike, a lovesick comedian transplant from New York who is having trouble letting go of the girlfriend back home who dumped him, and Vaughn plays Trent, a fast-talking playboy actor who tries to shake his best friend out of his rut.

Ashley Hinshaw has gone from posing in Abercrombie and Fitch's ad campaign to being Miley's BFF in "LOL," but she'll be jumping toes first into a whole new world in the upcoming film "Cherry."
Hinshaw, who stars as a young woman in the porn industry, is the last piece to the casting puzzle for "Cherry." As we reported in May, James Franco will play a coked-up lawyer slash love interest, with Heather Graham as one of Cherry's directors, a former adult star herself. (Paul Thomas Anderson fans will note this is an interesting twist on Graham's role as "Rollergirl" in "Boogie Nights.") Lili Taylor is on board as Cherry's alcoholic mom, while Dev Patel will play her lovelorn best friend. Get More »
James Franco has added yet another project to his already overflowing Texas-sized plate.
And we definitely like the sound of this little morsel. Franco, along with Heather Graham, Dev Patel and Lili Taylor, have joined the indie porn drama, "Cherry," according to Variety.
"Cherry" follows the misadventures of an 18-year-old girl who moves to San Francisco, where she becomes a porn star and gets involved with a cocaine-addicted lawyer (Franco). Get More »
