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").
This week: Ben Affleck directs and stars in the current Oscar frontrunner for Best Picture, "Argo," which tells the incredible true story of how the CIA helped get six Americans out of Tehran during the Iran hostage crisis by having them pose as Canadian filmmakers.
You know those words that seem impossible to spell right on the first try, but are nonetheless part of everyday language? "Apparent." "Vacuum." Even "misspell" is a tough one.
What if your name was as easy to misspell as, well, "misspell"? For some unlucky celebrities (and lucky people who write about them), typos in their names are just a part of the job. After all, there's a reason Cher ditched her birth name, Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere, in favor of a more writer-friendly moniker.
Ahead, check out the nine hardest to spell celebrity names — and examples of mistakes — that prove that no matter how famous you are, you can't escape a typo.

This week: Before he became an actor, Channing Tatum worked as a male stripper, which inspired Steven Soderbergh to direct "Magic Mike," a behind-the-scenes look at a troupe of male strippers taking it off nightly at a club in Florida.
Also new this week is the self-explanatory horror thriller "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," the sweet-natured apocalyptic romance "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" and a definitive anniversary edition of "Blade Runner" on Blu-ray. Get More »
Similar to their own beach read-based "Jack Reacher," Paramount has taken author Tom Clancy's most famous hero, CIA analyst Jack Ryan, and given him a new lease on cinematic life with next year's creatively-titled blockbuster "Jack Ryan."
Kind of a "Jack Ryan Begins," if you will, the new movie stars Chris Pine as Ryan, a character who first hit the screen more than 20 years ago in "The Hunt for Red October." With the Cold War long behind us, is the character still relevant all these years after his inception? Get More »
After a decade of delays, false starts and missed opportunities, Paramount's long awaited revival of Tom Clancy's "Jack Ryan" series is finally getting off the ground, as Deadline is reporting that not only have they finally set a release date for the film, they're also going to go ahead and turn it into a full-fledged trilogy.
All in a day's work for America's top intelligence agent.
Dormant since Ben Affleck's ill-fated 2002 effort "The Sum of All Fears," Clancy's "Jack Ryan" series has seen a lot of changes over the years, with the titular hero being played by Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford as well. Now, though, it's Chris Pine taking over in a pre-boot that will explain just how the young Ryan became a CIA analyst to begin with. And that offers up plenty of juicy possibilities for director Kenneth Branagh. Get More »
Keira Knightley is taking off the corset.
The "Anna Karenina" star is taking a break from costume dramas as she signs on to join the cast of the franchise reboot, "Jack Ryan," according to Heat Vision.
"Jack Ryan" serves as a prequel to the Tom Clancy series of novels as the title character, an ex-Marine and Moscow-based financial analyst, uncovers a plot by his employer to finance a terrorist attack designed to collapse the U.S. economy. Chris Pine will be playing the lead role, following in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin ("The Hunt For Red October"), Harrison Ford ("Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger") and Ben Affleck ("The Sum of All Fears").

Let the games begin! No, we're not talking about the Olympics — we're talking about the race to become Jack Ryan's love interest in the franchise relaunch that will star heartthrob Chris Pine as the famous CIA analyst (previously played by the likes of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck).
Buzz around Tinseltown is that beauties Keira Knightley, "Like Crazy" star Felicity Jones and "Lost"'s Evangeline Lilly are all circling the script for this high-profile role — which involves options that would potentially put the actress in three separate movies. Get More »
Keira Knightley is the epitome of a timeless beauty. She got her start in the feel-good soccer comedy "Bend It Like Beckham" and went on to travel through the ages as an 18th century governor's daughter in the first three "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, a 19th century romantic in "Pride & Prejudice" and a World War I nurse in "Atonement." If there's a time period in which Keira doesn't look absolutely gorgeous, we haven't found it yet.
In her latest movie "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," her character Penny deals with the end of time as she embarks on a road trip with her neighbor Dodge (played by Steve Carell) to find his high school sweetheart and return to her family in England during Earth's final days.
It may be the end of the world as we know it on December 21, 2012, but look at this Hot People Looking Hot gallery of Keira, and you'll feel fine.
Keira Knightley's pretty much the go-to girl for successful classic book-to-film adaptations anymore and for good reason: She's just so darn good at portraying the idyllic doe-eyed heroines of old.
The intense trailer for "Anna Karinina" is now upon us, and it proves that Knightley and director Joe Wright really are an adaptation dream team. The two — who previously paired up for "Atonement" and "Pride and Prejudice" — have concocted the movie telling of Leo Tolstoy's masterpiece in a way that is both a faithful and subtly transformative at the same time.
