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").
In case you haven't heard, "The Change-Up" follows two friends -- played by Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman -- who accidentally swap bodies. Like the many body-swap comedies that came before it, hilarity ensues.
But what if this could happen in real life? Even if it were just for 24 hours, who's shoes would you want to fill?
We asked 23 celebrities -- from Emma Roberts and Jesse Eisenberg to John C. Reilly and Hilary Duff -- who they would want to be for a brief moment. Their responses were, well, rather interesting. One person even wanted to try being Charlie Sheen for a day!

"Absolutely, hands down, number one, my favorite movie of all time is 'My Life As a Dog.'
"It's by Lasse Hallström and it is just -- it will make you cry like crazy. It's about this kid growing up in Scandinavia, but that's not why you cry.
"I saw it after I read Alec Guinness' autobiography which is called 'My Name Escapes Me.' In that book, someone asked him what the best film ever made was, and he said, 'My Life As a Dog.' And I thought, okay, well, if Alec Guinness says the best film ever made is 'My Life As a Dog,' I should probably be seeing that.
"And then I saw it, and I agreed with him, because it's amazing. That's the end of that story." Get More »
Tom Lennon's acting credits include everything from "Reno 911!" (he of the short-shorts) to "17 Again" to "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" (that role is technically uncredited, but he also co-wrote the script).
But something tells us this talented actor-writer is just getting started.
"Bad Teacher" brings him back to school, or, more accurately, the school testing board, as Carl, the socially awkward man with the answer key to the state's annual standardized exam -- which is what brings the titular educator Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz) to knock on his door, or, more accurately, to lounge seductively across his office desk.
