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.

"I don't want to freak you out, but 'Silence of the Lambs' is my favorite movie. 'When Harry Met Sally' is probably my other favorite movie. I think those two tie. My best friend Juliet and I have probably watched it together like thirty times. Every time we're at my house hanging out, even if we're just playing Scrabble, we probably have it on in the background.
"I know they're two very different movies, but I always loved Jodie Foster growing up because she had gone to Yale, she was very bright, she spoke French, all of that. Even before I thought I wanted to be an actor. I always had a thing for her. I was so impressed with her.
"And then that movie was the first that ever scared me in the psychological sense. Plus, I was just enchanted by Anthony Hopkins. I don't know, I just always thought that Jodie Foster was something pretty amazing."
Rachel Nichols stars in "Alex Cross" opposite Tyler Perry.
You probably recognize Rachel Nichols from her roles in numerous adventure flicks (no shame in that), because she's stood out in movies like "Star Trek," "Conan" and "G.I. Joe." But this action hero is about to embark on one of her toughest challenges yet: the romantic comedy.
Nichols' latest film, "A Bird of the Air," favors quiet subtext over CGI effects (well, except for one opinionated parrot), and a quirky librarian stalker (that's Nichols) over cliché chance encounters. Playing opposite the nearly silent Jackson Hurst, Nichols reminds us that a little crazy goes a long way.
We got the dirt on what enticed Nichols to play a character whom the audience hates, whether she'll ever get the Vulcan salute again and what's up with those rumors about Poison Ivy. Get More »
Anyone who thinks a modern reboot of "Conan the Barbarian" is going to be a watered-down, money-grubbing shell of its former self is in for a serious awakening. An awakening filled with the screams of a bulky warrior's sliced and diced victims, to be exact.
The official red band trailer for the remake popped up at IGN and gives a taste for the true mayhem in store. Like an Iron Maiden album cover come to life, director Marcus Nispel's ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Friday the 13th" remakes) vision of the legendary character is chock full of fantastical landscapes, gritty battles and splatters of blood flying in every direction.
The movie looks cheesy as all hell, but when you watch it explode across the screen like a Jackson Pollock nightmare, it's hard to imagine it any other way. Get More »
"G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" wasn't exactly the mega-hit that Paramount was hoping for in 2009; sure, the film made over $300 million worldwide, but that barely recouped all the costs involved in bringing the popular 80's action figures to life or something kinda like it. Still, it was just successful enough to warrant a sequel -- and now, thanks to a new tweet from star Rachel Nichols, we know how the studio is planning to fix things the second time around.
They're going to dump everything from the original. Get More »
The holiday season means one thing in Hollywood: big, family-friendly blockbusters like "Megamind" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
This is great, but sometimes we still like to see some good old fashioned little indie dramas, you know? Luckily, this year, film fans get the best of both worlds thanks to festival favorite "Meskada," which is set to open Dec. 3.
