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.

Gosh, it seems like just four days ago we were reporting that Zach Braff wanted your money — all $2 million of it — in order to fund his latest indie project, "Wish I Was Here." And now, just 96 hours later (give or take), Braff has already reached his goal, as according to The Hollywood Reporter, the "Wish I Was Here" Kickstarter project hit the $2 million mark on Saturday and is now officially funded.
So which Hollywood star is going to come begging for handouts next? Get More »
The "Veronica Mars" movie Kickstarter campaign ran for a month, despite meeting its initial fundraising goal of $2 million in a single day, and finally closed out on Friday ... with nearly three times the loot goal and a record for most pledgers on Kickstarter ever.
With 91, 585 backers in all, "Mars" creator Rob Thomas made the Double Fine Adventure and its prior record-holding 87,142 look like a chump has-been with no friends. Okay, not really, but Thomas did bamboozle the cinematic universe by collecting a cool $5,702,153 smackers to produce the long-awaited following to the cult TV show.
So, where will all these dolla dolla bills go? Get More »
The flame will have long been doused on the romance of detective Veronica and pretty boy Logan in the "Veronica Mars" movie — or so creator Rob Thomas said — but absence does have its way of making the heart grow fonder, and it looks like actor Jason Dohring is now totally in for the Kickstarted reunion movie bonanza opposite leading star Kristen Bell.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thomas alerted the film's many, many financial supporters to the news of securing Dohring's return, writing, "We now have three actors officially cast. Veronica. Logan and the waiter who says, 'Your check, sir.'" Get More »
Two weeks ago, Hollywood became a touch more democratic as "Veronica Mars" fans put their money where their movie-wanting mouths were and ponied up more than two million smackers to make it happen. While jaws met floors nationwide as the goal was met in a single day, judging by this behind-the-scenes video of the will-be filmmakers watching the loot roll in, no one was more surprised than them.
Creator Rob Thomas, leading actress Kristen Bell and actor Enrico Colantoni documented their group reactions to each milestone — from the very first backer to the first $10,000 donor to reaching their first $1 million and beyond — and they were uber-cute the whole way. Get More »
"Veronica Mars" fans shocked everyone even remotely aware of Hollywood by coughing up 2 million smackers in a single day to Kickstart the crap out their long-awaited movie adaptation, so now the creator-lead dream team of Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell have serious some work to do to ensure their ravenous audience gets exactly what it's still paying for (the pot's up to $3.74 million and counting).
Novelists are awesome. A good book is like an old friend, and we tip our proverbial hat to anyone who can pluck a tale from thin air and entertain or, better yet, enlighten a total stranger. Put too many writers in one family, though, and the plot is bound to get thick with complications.
Well, it looks like we're going to get that "Veronica Mars" movie.
Warner Bros. stated that it would go forward with a film adaptation of the cult detective television series if the project's Kickstarter campaign reached its goal of $2 million. The campaign commenced this morning with a deadline of April 12.
That 30-day deadline was completely unnecessary, as it reached its goal in a matter of hours. Get More »
UPDATE: Who needs 30 days when you can raise $2 million in less than one?

"Veronica Mars," a film noir-style detective drama centered around a tough-as-nails teenage girl, was one of the most beloved cult classic shows of the last decade. And ever since it went off the air in 2007, creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell have been trying their darndest to make a "Veronica Mars" movie happen. Unfortunately, parent company Warner Bros. has repeatedly refused to finance a "Veronica Mars" feature film, so now Thomas and Bell are turning to a new source for their funding: You.
The stars have traveled to the sleepy town of Park City, Utah to once again celebrate movies and piss off the locals at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. We caught up with one of our favorite sexy funnygirls Kristen Bell, who is here with the coming-of-age tale "The Lifeguard." (Being a Sundance movie, how depressing it is? She’ll tell ya in a sec.)
The film stars Bell as a nearing 30-year-old who returns home to live with her parents and hopes to find herself through late nights out with friends and her high school job as a lifeguard.
Here Bell, who is six-and-a-half months pregnant, talks about how fiance Dax Shepard supports her in her time of need and why she wasn’t sweating the wedgies from the lifeguard suit. Get More »
