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.

Nicki Minaj's army of barbs are surely rejoicing today because the feisty hip hop artist and "American Idol" judgette is now set to make her real big screen debut, dahling.

You may not have seen actress Leslie Mann's most flattering side yet: Her two most memorable roles are the drunken French toast craver who hits on Steve Carell in "The 40 Year Old Virgin" and Debbie, the "crazy chick in a pink dress snatching up babies" in "Knocked Up." In "This Is 40," however, out on DVD and Blu-ray Friday, Mann had the chance to reprise the latter role, showing the (somewhat) softer side of Debbie.
"This Is 40," directed by Mann's husband, Judd Apatow, focuses in on Debbie, Pete (Paul Rudd) and their daughters (Mann's real-life kids, Iris and Maude Apatow), who were relegated to side character status in "Knocked Up." The "sort-of sequel" to the 2007 hit, "This Is 40" catches up with Pete and Debbie as they grapple with the trials and tribulations of middle age.
NextMovie caught up with Mann for a brief telephone chat recently, and found out what it's like to have your husband tell another man to kiss you, whether "This Is 40" is Debbie's revenge, and who she'd cast as her love interest, given the choice. Get More »
This week: Peter Jackson returns to Middle-earth with "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first of three movies based on the classic fantasy novel "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien, which features Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen reprising his role as the wizard Gandalf from "The Lord of the Rings."
Just by virtue of being an active, (appropriately) 40-year-old woman, "This Is 40" star and wife-to-Apatow Leslie Mann has probably seen her fair share of boobs. She's been around the boob block a few times. Seen a boob or two in her day, one would assume.
And as for the best boobs she's ever seen? The competition is officially over. Yes, as our blood brothers at Starpulse report, Mann has admitted that her "This is 40" co-star Megan Fox has "better boobs than (she's) ever seen in (her) life." Indeed, every other boob that's ever been in Mann's life will have to go home empty-handed. (Empty-boobed?)
Her admiration didn't stop the famous "This is 40" scene featuring Mann groping Fox's boobs from being a little awkward.
"In that situation I knew there were a lot of dirty boys around having weird, gross fantasies. And so I wanted to get her shirt back on as quickly as possible," she reported.
But not before marveling one last time, we're guessing.
"The handicapped stall is like a free hotel." We never looked at it that way before.
Judd Apatow has a knack for making us see everyday (and not so everyday) things from completely new perspectives, and there are a lot of perspectives going on in this five-minute deleted scene from his new comedy, "This Is 40." Get More »
If there's one thing the Apatow family ("This Is 40" director Judd Apatow, his wife Leslie Mann and daughters Iris and Maude Apatow, who all star in the movie) excels at, it is antics. (And, some would say, filmmaking.) Get More »
When you're a potential Oscar nominee, there's no end to ways you will humiliate yourself in order to win over the mostly 80+ year-old voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Somewhere between appearing on "Oprah" and busking on a subway lie these jolly fellows, who all appear to be singing "Jingle Bells" (or at least trying) because you may or may not have gotten those candy canes they sent out lined with $100-dollar bills. Get More »
Comedian types are always pretty quick to dish it out, but the question always remains whether they themselves can take it. Enter the trusty Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to find out.
Funny or Die took the mean-spirited faux pooch to the set of Judd Apatow's "This is 40" to haggle him and his central cast — including Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Megan Fox and John Lithgow — to find out just how thick-skinned these supposedly funny people are. The appeal of Triumph, of course, is that he gets the jabs in nice and deep, and it's up to his victims to play it cool under the heat of his hateful barrage. Get More »
"Here's where you make out with my wife."
If you've ever said that, you're either recreationally into that sort of thing (and we here at NextMovie hold no judgment) or you're a Hollywood director married to an actress in the movie you're directing. Get More »
