Have you ever thought about changing your first and last name? I usually use different names (and sometimes even my maiden name) just because I write on the Internet. While I love what I do and in general don’t have much to hide, I always worry about what my readers might be thinking. And if they ever turn their thoughts into actions. That’s why for the sake of me and my family, I would rather use a fake name to avoid any future problems (or wackos) that are out there.
I’m sure that plenty of celebrities feel the same way and that’s why they use stage names all the time. In fact, a lot of Hollywood actors and actresses use stage names that are nowhere near their real names! You’d be surprised to find out who we are talking about, too.
Here are just a few celebrities who use stage names!
Believe this or not, Natalie Portman’s birth name is Natalia Hershlang. She was born in Jerusalem in 1981 and was actually giving the name Neta-Lee, a Hebrew name. Regardless of whether you call her Natalie, Neta-Lee or Nat, she’s still one of the most beautiful celeb moms out there.
No, this did not come out straight from a Saturday Night Live skit but Tina Fey’s real name is Elizabeth Stamatina Fey. She could easily call herself Stamatina and we’d still think of her as the funniest woman in the biz.
It’s a good think that Katy Perry changed her name because her real name is actually Katy Hudson. It’s not enough that Katy Perry looks like so many different actresses (Zoey Desschanel anyone) but to we would have a hard time trying not to mix her up with Kate Hudson.
