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.
Reporting by: Sandie Angulo Chen ("Millie 69"), Robert DeSalvo ("Rocky Waverly"), Claire Donovan ("Spunky Walter"), Elizabeth Durand ("Stephanie Veronica"), Bryan Enk ("Buck Densmore"), Max Evry ("Orion Cedar Crest "), Breanne Heldman ("Krugerrand Ardon"), Jenni Miller ("Mitzi Turtle Creek"), Kevin Polowy ("Sparkle Sterling"), Brandon Rae ("Sammi von Fernway"), Brooke Tarnoff ("Brandy W. Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
Jessica Chastain — you go, grrrl!
The Oscar-nominated star of "Zero Dark Thirty" trades her trademark red mane for a short jet-black 'do (complete with accompanying tattoos) for her goth punk turn in "Mama," the Guillermo del Toro-produced frightfest about a rather, shall we say, over-protective ghost.
Jessica's new look has us wanting to start a band that only covers Sex Pistols songs ... and gather some pics of other hot punk rock chicks in flicks. Fight the power and get clickin' through our gallery.

Lizzy Caplan is cool. She's so cool, in fact, that we named her as one of the 25 Coolest People in Movies a few weeks ago, mostly based on her exceptionally well-chosen projects (and a little bit on some extra je ne sais quoi). By our counter-culture standards, her "Mean Girls" character Janis Ian was the best of the cast, and the rest of Caplan's resume — including parts in "Freaks and Geeks," "Party Down," "Cloverfield," "New Girl," "127 Hours" and cult favorite web series "Wainy Days" — reads like an application to the Cool Hall of Fame (an imaginary institution we've just made up now, essentially guaranteeing we'll never be inducted, ourselves).
Now with a starring role in the cutthroat indie comedy "3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom," Caplan sheds some clothing and ponders the nature of humiliation: her own, her co-stars' and that of random dudes getting hit in the goolies with gardening tools. Get More »
What does it mean to be cool? It's pretty damn subjective. So when compiling our list of the 25 coolest people making movies right now (somebody had to do it, right?), we accounted for various factors.
These are the actors who not only impress us onscreen (though that helps), but convey a certain genuineness off it, be it at awards shows, on TV appearances or during our own personal experiences interviewing them. They can be multi-talents, also excelling at music, art or writing. And they can make a habit of turning up in hilarious viral videos or even at your local karaoke bar.
But most of all, these are the 25 actors we'd really just like to sit down and have a beer with.
Welcome to NextMovie's 1st annual Cool List – and let us know who makes your own list in the comments section below. Get More »
If you though "Bridesmaids" was a riot, just wait until you lay your eyes on "Bachelorette," playwright Leslye Headland's filthy, lewd, crass and totally hilarious film debut starring Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fischer as three best friends who like doing very bad things.
A hit at the Sundance Film Festival where it premiered earlier this year, "Bachelorette" centers mostly on Regan (Dunst), a privileged and high-minded young woman who is horrified to learn that one of her good friends (Rebel Wilson) — the girl everyone used to call "pig face" in high school — will be walking down the aisle before her. And, as luck would have it, said friend has picked Regan to be her maid of honor. Guess how she takes the news... Get More »
So imagine this: Your sleezebag tool of a brother secretly films you getting it on with a hottie and then, if that wasn't bad enough, sells the video to a local porn baron. Who then turns out to be said hottie's father. There's pretty much nothing that could make this a good situation, right?
Well, that's what you'd think. But thanks to the new trailer for "3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom," we now know just what the silver lining is: Ron Perlman in drag. Get More »
Yes, unlike the "Bridesmaids," the ladies of "Bachelorette" actually get to indulge in a little "ahhh, snort, grunt" (to sort-of quote Isla Fisher's character). But at what price?
"Bachelorette" stars Fisher, Kirsten Dunst and Lizzy Caplan as three BFFs who are called upon to be bridesmaids at the wedding of a girl they used to call "Pigface" (the always-hilarious Rebel Wilson) back in high school. Shenanigans and disasters ensue (don't they always?), including attending a get-together that Caplan's character describes as "Jane Austen on crack" and the unfortunate destruction of the wedding dress.

You know what we love most about Marvel and their big line of interconnected superhero movies? They seem like they're actually enjoying themselves, which unfortunately is something you can't say about a lot of blockbusters these days.
Case in point: Marvel unveiled a brand new short film titled "Item 47" at this year's Comic-Con — and we've got the first teaser from it right here.

Ever wonder what happens after an epic superhero battle leaves some hefty collateral damage in its wake?
Earth's Mightiest Heroes certainly left a pretty big mess behind when they went to get their post-victory shawarma in "The Avengers," and Entertainment Weekly has your first glimpse at the poster for "Item 47," Marvel's 12-minute-long follow-up that shows the consequences of Joss Whedon not picking up his toys after he's done playing.
