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").
"It's so hard to say because do I name the kind of movie that makes me feel really great? Or do I name the movie that makes me feel really terrible? They're both valid. But I would say maybe just from an actress’s perspective, probably 'Woman Under the Influence' is the best movie of all time.
"The style of filmmaking and the performances … you don't feel like you’re watching a film. It’s hard to believe that it's actually been premeditated and constructed when you're watching that film and I find that really impressive."
Olivia Thirlby is ready for action.
A year after fighting off hostile aliens in the little-seen "Darkest Hour," the native New Yorker best known for her work in indie faves "Juno" and "The Wackness" is judging, jurying and executing in "Dredd 3D," a reboot of the 2000AD comic starring Karl Urban in the role Sylvester Stallone once proved expendable.
The difference? There are no Razzies in store for this edition. The film's getting great reviews, and Thirlby's (blonde!) Dredd sidekick Anderson is a large part of why the film whoops serious butt. She told us all about bringing the pain in "Dredd." Get More »
Artsy people just can't seem to help but want to sleep with each other.

Sometimes you don't need a big studio budget to snap up some of Hollywood's hottest names.
Case-in-point: John Krasinski (from that little show known as "The Office"), Olivia Thirlby (who proved a bright addition to both "Juno" and "No Strings Attached") and Rosemarie DeWitt ("Rachel Getting Married") are all in the final negotiations to star in "Nobody Walks."
