If you thought that actors obscured their identities with cool and bad ass aliases, I'm gonna suggest you have a seat, because a new batch of documents from the Sony hack suggests that most actors—including Tom Hanks and Daniel Craig—pick the lamest fake names possible.
A new round of files were put on Github today by Guardians of Peace, the organization that claims to be behind the hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment. The hack has already been responsible for troves of embarrassing internal documents being released into the wild (to say nothing of the intensely personal), and this list of aliases probably won't make some of Hollywood's most high-profile talent too happy.
In the latest batch of files leaked by a hacking group known as "Guardians of Peace," there is a folder containing "publicity bibles" for many recently released Sony Pictures films. These documents, which are compiled and distributed among film staff, serve as contact directories for the duration of filming. They include phone numbers and e-mail addresses for directors, producers, publicists, cast members, and crew. And, in some cases, they include the false names stars assume in order to protect their privacy.
Via Roose, here are a bunch of dumb fake names for people like Tom Hanks, Natalie Portman, Daniel Craig and Jude Law (and Rob Schenider):
Tom Hanks: goes by "Harry Lauder" and "Johnny Madrid"
Sarah Michelle Gellar: goes by "Neely O'Hara"
Tobey Maguire: goes by "Neil Deep"
Natalie Portman: goes by "Lauren Brown"
Clive Owen: goes by "Robert Fenton"
Rob Schneider: goes by "Nazzo Good"
Taye Diggs: goes by "Scott Diggs"
Jude Law: goes by "Mr. Perry"
Daniel Craig: goes by "Olwen Williams"
Jessica Alba: goes by "Cash Money"
Ice Cube: goes by "Darius Stone" and "O'Shea Jackson"
Debra Messing: goes by "Ava Harper"
Jessica Alba aka "Cash Money." Hollywood is very cool and normal.
