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").
People are always complaining about how much Americans suck at doing accents, whether it's Kevin Costner as "Robin Hood" or Keanu Reeves seemingly coming off a heroin addiction in "Bram Stoker's Dracula." And we do suck sometimes, yes.
However, we want to at least even the playing field a little by pointing out some bafflingly bad American accents perpetrated by thesps from overseas. Europe and Australia may have the best acting academies and such, but not every graduate is as versatile as they should be, starting with a certain Gerard Butler from this past weekend's "Olympus Has Fallen."

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Seth MacFarlane has scored quite the cowgirl! The "Ted" funnyman has rounded up the gorgeous (and quite funny herself) Charlize Theron to star in his new film, "A Million Ways to Die in the West," a self-described "Blazing Saddles"-type comedy about a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him.

• Colin Farrell and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain are going classical with "Miss Julie," director Liv Ullmann's take on August Strindberg's 19th-century stage play about the sexually-charged battle of wills between a wealthy socialite and one of her head servants, with the servant's fiancee popping up every now and then to make things even more interesting. Samantha Morton is also set to star. [The Hollywood Reporter] Get More »
This week: Wes Anderson's latest heartfelt comedy, "Moonrise Kingdom," chronicles the great romance between two 12-year-old runaways during the summer of 1965.
Also new this week is the animated sequel "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," the found footage-ish horror flick "Chernobyl Diaries," the Adam Sandler comedy "That's My Boy" and an edition of "Avatar" on Blu-ray 3D that one can buy without it being bundled with a hardware purchase. Get More »
This week: Sam Worthington plays a prison escapee who orchestrates an intricate heist while clinging to the outside of a tall building in the appropriately titled action thriller "Man on a Ledge."
The sequel to 2010's "Clash of the Titans" is here ... with a vengeance. "Wrath of the Titans" picks up a few years after its predecessor, with Perseus (Sam Worthington) still denying his godly roots; but when his papa Zeus (Liam Neeson) is taken captive by Hades (Ralph Feinnes) in a plot to bring fearsome Titan Cronos back to power, he gets back in action faster than you can say "3-D glasses."
If you're wondering, yes, the IMAX 3-D is way good this time, and director Jonathan Liebesman does his darndest to make this new romp through Greek mythology bigger, grittier and more epic than the last. Get More »
Fans of epic video games can be forgiven for their confusion today, because the brand new teaser trailer for "Wrath of the Titans" is here -- and it looks like nothing so much as a tease for "God of War IV."
Which is a very good thing. Get More »
Valentine's Day is upon us, love is in the air, and we are so on it.
Oh, we don't mean candlelit dinners and flower deliveries -- we mean romantic movies, in which every meet-cute and heartbreak has a soundtrack; and hot, sensitive characters say "I love you" better than your significant other ever will.
You know who loves romantic movies, too? Celebrities. From Channing Tatum to Christina Hendricks, these 20 famous folks name their favorites and give us some pretty good ideas for what we might be watching (again) this Valentine's Day.
"'Lethal Weapon 2.' People laugh at that. Look, obviously I have many movies that are near and dear to me. From 'Girl on the Bridge' to 'City of God' to 'Three Days of the Condor,' 'Cool Hand Luke,' things like that.
But I watched 'Lethal Weapon 2' and I thought, 'If they can have that much fun and get paid for it, I want that job!'
It's 'The Three Stooges' is what it is, and that's why I like it. It made me want to make movies."
We've heard of commentary tracks on DVDs before, but it's not often you get a commentary track for a movie trailer -- and if "Man on a Ledge" turns out to be half as entertaining as the new trailer commentary track from Elizabeth Banks, it's going to be the best damn movie of the year.
We dare you to watch this and not be entertained. Get More »
