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").
No doubt one of the trickiest tasks of adapting a book for the big screen is deciding which memorable moments will make the final cut—and which will end up on the cutting room floor. And we imagine the process is even more fraught if you're the one who wrote the thing to begin with, so we have to give big ups to "Perks of Being a Wallflower" author Stephen Chbosky, who expertly edited his coming-of-age novel into an affecting film without losing any of the heart—even if it did lose a scene or two.

There's more to the careers of the stars of "The Vampire Diaries" than just "The Vampire Diaries," you know!
With the show making it's fourth season debut tonight at 8 p.m. on the CW, we figured we'd celebrate them.
In case you forgot, Nina Dobrev, who plays both Elena Gilbert and her doppelganger Katherine Pierce, took a break from the undead to play Candace in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." Stephen R. McQueen, who plays her brother Jeremy, got appropriately bloodied in "Piranha 3D."
And that's just the beginning. See Dobrev, McQueen and friends front and center in their flicks in our gallery.
Charlie may be a the strong, silent type, but the "Perks of Being a Wallflower" protagonist knows a thing or two about style... and we're not just talking about his ability to write letters to an unknown friend.
Logan Lerman's character knows the finer points of wearing a suit, while his more outgoing friends, played by Ezra Miller, Emma Watson and Mae Whitman rock some decidedly looks ranging from punk rock to totally preppy. And, despite the fact that the film takes place in the early 1990s, the fashions of the film — like the themes — still totally translate.
Check out the latest Get the Goods for some of our favorite looks from the movie.
"A lot of people thought I was crazy," the Bulgarian-born beauty tells us in the video interview above. "A lot of my close friends have been personally touched and affected by the book so they were really excited that I was going to be in the movie."
Dobrev – best known for her supernatural work in The CW's beloved series "The Vampire Diaries" – plays Candace, the older sister to Logan Lerman's tormented Charlie in the buzzed-about screen adaptation of the bestseller (her character didn't actually have a first name in the book).
Now that the actress is making her mark on the big screen – she's also appeared in "Chloe" and "The Roommate" – could a "Vampire Diaries" movie be far behind? Dobrev doesn't think so.
"I always feel like you have to end on a good note, and you have to tell the story as long as there's a story to tell," she says. "I feel like they've got it all mapped out for the amount of time we're going to do it, which is six years. And if it goes any longer than that, we'll start losing quality."
If you're a fan of the book "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," you're undoubtedly wondering (or worried) about how far the movie will stray from Stephen Chbosky's original work. Luckily, we went right to the source.
We caught up with Chbosky (who also directed the film) as well as the movie's stars, Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev and Ezra Miller. They gave us some insight into how the movie differs from the original book and how they think audiences will react to the much anticipated film... and those pesky changes. Get More »
[From Hollywood Crush] As circa-1995 Alanis Morissette would hiss, isn't it ironic that Nina Dobrev auditioned for the big-screen adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" via Skype, considering the technology wasn't a thing in the early '90s (the time period in which the novel is set)? I mean, don't you think?
Well, it was all part of a journey "The Vampire Diaries" star took to land the role of Charlie's sister Candace — despite a geographic challenge or two. Get More »
Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! it's a plane! It's... "Kid Cannabis?"
Okay, so despite the title, the upcoming indie "Kid Cannabis" is not actually about Bluntman and Chronic's new sidekick. But as disappointing as that is, there is good news: According to Deadline, "Footloose's" Kenny Wormald has just signed on to co-star in it.
Did we just give you a natural high? Get More »
We've got the 420 — er, the 411 — on a groovy new movie.
Kellan Lutz of the "Twilight" saga and Nina Dobrev of "The Vampire Diaries" are set to trade drinking blood for smoking (and selling) weed as they sign on for "Kid Cannabis," according to Heat Vision. Get More »
If you've passed a bookstore or checked out the cover of Entertainment Weekly lately, you may be familiar with "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy. E.L. James' first novel is all the rage right now, but it started out as a mega-popular piece of "Twilight" fan fiction called "Master of the Universe." Seriously. The book, which now follows a clumsy, virginal brunette named Anastasia Steele as she falls for a gorgeous, auburn-haired billionaire named Christian Grey, once used the names Bella and Edward and was written with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in mind.
Unlike Bella and Edward, who don't get it on until they're married, Ana and Christian barely know each other when they begin a kinky sexual relationship in which
Edward Christian is a Dominant and Ana a Submissive. Think of it as "Twilight" minus the paranormal plus the graphic sexuality of "9 1/2 Weeks" by way of the dominant-submissive romance in "Secretary."
Now that Universal and Focus have optioned the book, the question on readers' minds is whether Robsten will consider starring in the roles literally written for them. While James, who has ultimate casting control over the leads, has said she hopes unknown stars will take the parts, she surely would love Rob and Kristen to say yes. But if they don't, here's a slate of other potential Anas and Christians that could steam it up together on-screen. Get More »
