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.

It's been four long years since 007 did his thang in "Quantum of Solace," so, for the new film "Skyfall," James Bond is finally showing signs of physical fatigue. Only took him 23 movies!
This time Bond (Daniel Craig) has been knocked out of commission after sustaining an injury in the line of duty. Presumed dead, he's back in action after MI6 is attacked by a lethal former operative named Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem). Famous characters such as Q and others we won't spoil for you make a welcome return in an installment that's already a global smash. Get More »
There are mortal women ... and then there are Bond Girls.
Truly, is there an all-female exclusive club in pop culture more capable of inspiring such lust and adoration? 007's many lovely colleagues are the ultimate fantasy women: gorgeous, resourceful, dangerous and more than willing to indulge any secret agent's other favorite kind of undercover "work."
Get briefed with our gallery, which covers every Bond Girl from the past 50 years, from Severine (Berenice Marlohe) in "Skyfall" (2012) all the way back to Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) in "Dr. No" (1962). The former opens Nov. 9.
Every now and then Hollywood has a good idea, and we gotta say, this is one of the best we've heard in a while. Daniel Craig is killing it as James Bond—and there's even chatter that he might be the new quintessential 007 (sorry Sean Connery) — but he's going to have to hang up the tuxedo someday… which makes us wonder who could possibly take his place?
Enter Idris Elba. That's right—the guy from "The Wire." According to Total Film, Elba has already met with producer Barbara Broccoli (no, we didn't make that name up) to discuss the possibility. Obviously, this has us very excited for many reasons, not the least of which is that Elba is a powerful thesp we'd love to see more of, but also because he would be the first black Bond. It's about time. Get More »
Forget Halloween and Columbus Day, because October's number one holiday is being celebrated today worldwide: Global James Bond Day, which marks the 50th anniversary of the 1962 release of the first James Bond film, "Dr. No."
And in order to really celebrate in style, not only do we have Adele's new theme song for you, we've also got a brand new clip from next month's "Skyfall" as well.
Hey, it was either that or give everyone a license to kill.
What do these 30 women have in common (besides their obvious hotness)? They're all poised to take things to the next level in 2012.
The roles are bigger, and the spotlight has never been brighter for these female thespians. Whether they're launching a new potential trilogy or making their first leap into the comedy arena, we salute these actresses for taking on roles that carry major risks and possibly major rewards.

Besides being English, what do Harry Potter and James Bond have in common? With a 15-movie difference and 40-year head-start, 007 seems like he has the major advantage, but now several castmembers have defected from the Ministry of Magic and are heading to MI6 with a quickness.
The U.K.'s Daily Mail reports that Brit Helen McCrory has joined the cast of MGM's 23rd James Bond feature. She played one bad motha', Narcissa Malfoy, in the final three "Harry Potter" movies in addition to having previously worked with new Bond director director Sam Mendes on several plays, with Daniel Craig in the little-seen 2008 film "Flashbacks of a Fool," and newly-cast Ralph Fiennes as ol' Voldy in the aforementioned fantasy franchise. Talk about being grandfathered in. Get More »
She's fought zombies in "28 Days Later" and pirates in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," but Naomie Harris' latest role pits her against her greatest opponent yet: seduction.
The 34-year-old actress has been cast as M's assistant, Moneypenny, the object of Bond's flirtatious advances, in Sam Mendes' upcoming "Bond 23" (via IndieWire).
The iconic character, which has appeared in 20 previous Bond films and two TV specials, has been played in the past by actresses Lois Maxwell, Caroline Bliss, Samantha Bond, Barbara Bouchet, and Pamela Salem.
While Moneypenny has not appeared in "Casino Royale," or "Quantum of Solace," the two most recent Bond films starring Daniel Craig as 007, she won't be the only new addition to the cast; Ralph Fiennes has reportedly signed on as a "darkly complex" character, while Javier Bardem tackles the role of the film's villain.

The Bond girl: 007's true sparring partner.
Unlike most blockbuster franchises, where we eagerly await the announcement of which villain and actor have signed on to face off against our favorite heroes, Bond is all about the romantic interest. Many famous, gorgeous faces have accompanied James Bond on his spy missions -- Eva Green, Gemma Arterton and Olga Kurylenko in recent years -- and now the long-awaited "Bond 23" may finally have its leading lady.
Naomie Harris, who previously starred in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" and "Ninja Assassin," has been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly has having met producers for possible Bond girl consideration. The site is quick to note that no deals have been struck, but after six months of swirling rumors, including the possible addition of Rachel Weisz to the cast, this is the first concrete info we've heard on the film.
