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.

For Kristen Stewart, there's definitely life after "Twilight" ... and it's hot!
Deadline reports that K.Stew will be getting kinky with it as she's signed on to star in "The Big Shoe," a fetish film that's sure to get one half of the audience all hot and bothered whilst totally creeping out the other.
"The Big Shoe" stars Jim Sturgess as a talented shoe designer who breaks ties with a family that wants to turn his work into mass-produced knock-offs (cue this song). In an attempt to lure him back into the fold, the family hires a psychotherapist named Mary Kay (Elizabeth Banks) and a muse named Delphi (K.Stew), and, well ... things will probably get very interesting from there.

Well, here's what might be the most aptly-titled film since, I dunno, "Snakes on a Plane."
Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst make for a sci-fi Romeo and Juliet amidst a strange "Brazil"-ish landscape in "Upside Down," the story of two lovers torn asunder by the fact that they live on two completely opposite and inverted worlds that aren't allowed to communicate with one another. It's up to them to prove whether, as the film's kicker says, love is stronger than gravity (perhaps not quite the compelling tagline the filmmakers seem to think it is). Get More »
"Matrix" directors Lana and Andy Wachowski, along with "Run Lola Run" filmmaker Tom Tykwer, have crafted a big, tasty slice of WTF pie in the form of their new movie epic "Cloud Atlas." The film breaks boundaries both in its narrative (interweaving six separate stories of different genres) and through its performers (the actors play multiple roles of different age, race and gender), all the while somehow remaining not just coherent but wildly entertaining. Who'd a thunk it?
While the end credits reveal who played which characters — leading to some audible gasps from the audience — we thought we'd fill you in on just who each of these actors appear as and how much Silly Putty was applied to achieve this.

The French trailer for Kirsten Dunst's upcoming sci-fi action/romance "Upside Down" has arrived and if you thought her iconic, gravity-defying smooch from "Spider-Man" was something, wait until you get a load of the wet one she plants on Jim Sturgess.

Jim Sturgess has his head (and the rest of him, at that) in a "Cloud."
The up-and-coming British actor is about to trade the decades-spanning romance of "One Day" for the centuries-spanning adaptation of David Mitchell's celebrated novel as he joins the cast of "Cloud Atlas," according to The Playlist.
Sturgess is one of the final pieces of the production's massive puzzle as principal photography is only weeks away. He joins a cast that includes Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent and Bae Doona. Get More »
Adapted from David Nicholls' best-selling 2009 book of the same name, Lone Scherfig's romance follows Dexter (Jim Sturgess) and Emma (Anne Hathaway) over the course of 20 years, starting with the pair meeting as university students in 1988 and checking up on them every subsequent anniversary of the day they met.
You'd think following two people over two decades would necessitate a time-spanning soundtrack. Get More »
You'd think that playing an upper-class bloke would be a nice change of pace for Jim Sturgess, who was last seen in Peter Weir's intense drama "The Way Back." In that film, Sturgess played Janusz, a man who escapes from a gulag in Siberia and walks 4,000 miles to India.
But Sturgess admits in our exclusive interview that Dexter, his character in the film "One Day," is grappling with his own demons... and they're no walk in the park, either. As someone who drinks and drugs his way to the top of a fancy TV career and then falls way, way down, Dexter is a complicated dude with a lot on his mind -- including his longtime friend Emma, played by Anne Hathaway.
And then there are all the fans of the David Nicholls novel, whom Sturgess knows may have formed their own ideas about Dex in their minds. Luckily, director Lone Scherfig had the final say when it came to casting Sturgess in the role. "I just have to hope that's all right," Sturgess grins.
Watch the video and see what else Sturgess had to say about Dex, the novel and the making of the film.

Usually it's a bad thing for curious fans when celebrities only give yes or no answers during an interview -- but not when the interview takes place on MTV's After Hours.
Case in point: the brand new interview with "One Day" stars Jim Sturgess and Anne Hathaway, who prove that sometimes a yes/no question is the best question of all when they participate in the newest game show sensation, "The Yes/No Show."
Is Sturgess on medication? Is Hathaway's Catwoman better than Halle Berry's? Do the stars Google themselves? If you want to find out the answers, head over to MTV Movies Blog -- and say yes to entertainment.
The romance genre is one that's particularly difficult to nail. The films walk a tonal line -- on one side fluffy and frivolous, the other too heavy for its own good. It's about finding something genuine, a relationship that can captivate as well as relate to audiences. Many have tried, few have succeeded.
This summer, Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess will give it a go under the supervision of "An Education" director Lone Scherfig, in the new romantic drama, "One Day." Get More »
