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.

"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is currently filming in Atlanta, where "Conan" is currently having a week's worth of shows. Much to our delight, this allowed the always-charming Paul Rudd to appear on the show last night in full Brian Fantana garb (which includes a giant, healthy, super-creepy mustache), where he talked about the film's December release and even (gasp!) brought along a clip from the much-anticipated sequel.
Or so he told Conan, and all of us, and we believed him. We believed you, Rudd.
Don't get us wrong: The clip is funny, maybe as funny as any future 15-second clip from "Anchorman: The Legend Continues." And who knows — the movie might actually have a scene where a kid in a wheelchair falls off a cliff into a lake and an alien watches with delight. We can neither confirm nor deny that that actually takes place in the movie.
I'm just not sure if Rudd fully comprehends the emotional wringer he put us through for laughs. Damn you, Paul.
We all know "Admission" star Paul Rudd is both handsome and talented, but is that enough for him to pass muster on NextMovie's toughest admissions quiz?
To find out, we sat down with Rudd and grilled him about his personal life, extracurricular activities, where he sees himself in five years and what, exactly, makes him so darn special.
Watch the video interview above to find out all that and more, and check out "Admission," co-starring Tina Fey and Nat Wolff, opening in theaters nationwide Friday.

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."
The Super Bowl is fast approaching and for many fans, that means just one thing: A bunch of awesome new TV commercials featuring their favorite film stars. But why wait until Sunday night when you can check out the hottest new Super Bowl ad right now?
It's the new Samsung campaign featuring Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen. And since this is for the Super Bowl, they've got some pretty big ideas. Just one problem: The term "Super Bowl" is trademarked, as are the names of the teams involved. So what do you do? Get More »
"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 »
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 »
Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"
These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »
Here's what you need to know about the new trailer for the upcoming comedy "Admission:" It stars Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. Any questions?

Not all great cinema stars have the most auspicious beginnings to their lives in celluloid. Some start in commercials, TV, bit parts, background work. Hell, a few even dabble in porn (we're looking at you, Sylvester Stallone).
Ground zero for acting talent, more often than not, is the horror genre. This being Halloween season, we decided to highlight a few mega-talents who jumpstarted their careers in much the same way they entered the world: naked, screaming and covered in blood. Get More »
