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.

Though she's appeared in movies like "Blades of Glory" and "Hall Pass," you know Jenna Fischer best for her part in NBC's perennially popular sitcom, "The Office." Fischer is the heart of the show, unique among a cast of fantastically bizarre characters for her mundane, relatable humanity.
It's the same sensibility she brings to her leading role in "The Giant Mechanical Man," a charming, peculiar indie written and directed by Fischer's husband, Lee Kirk. As Janice, a woman in her 30s lacking anything resembling direction, Fischer taps into a question both terrifying and universal: How do we know where we're going when our lives deviate from well-worn paths?
With Fischer in town for the Tribeca Film Festival, we spoke about her own life path, how producing her husband's movie nearly cost her the acting gig, and how she wants to see "The Office" end, if and when it does. Get More »
Have you ever been walking through the city, seen one of those street performers painted to look like a statue or a robot and thought to yourself, "I'd hit that?" Well, guess what.
The first trailer for the new indie "The Giant Mechanical Man" is here and chances are once you get a look at "The Office" star Jenna Fischer's efforts to find true love among the painted people, you'll never look at street performers quite the same way again. Get More »
Jenna Fischer is breaking free — in more ways than one.
"The Office" darling is about to bring her own spin to the small-town widow in the upcoming dramedy, "A Little Help."
Directed by "King of Queens" creator, Michael J. Weithorn, the indie flick stars Fischer as a widow adjusting to single motherhood after her philandering husband (Chris O'Donnell) unexpectedly dies — not that he was a great loss anyway. In the midst of struggling to help her (somewhat challenging) son cope, Fischer reconnects with her high school flame (Rob Benedict)—which would be great, if he weren't her sister's husband.
