10 Best Celebrity Hotel Aliases

Celebrities (usually) love being famous, but most would rather travel incognito. So when they check in to hotels, they frequently use weird or funny names. Oh, they could always just use an assistant or another lackey’s name — but what fun would that be?

Here are the monikers stars have used before, along with what we know (or can surmise) about them. But even though you’ll now know what they are too, don’t expect a front desk clerk to put you through when you call.

Mr. Woodpond (Justin Timberlake)

Timber = Wood, Lake = Pond. We see what you did there, Justin.

Chuck Steak (Kristen Stewart)

KStew’s favorite kicks are Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars (she even wears them on red carpets), so it’s possible that’s where the first part came from. As for the second, maybe it’s just an alternate spelling of a vampire’s mortal enemy: the stake.

Frank Sinatra (Jay-Z)

In his love song to New York, ‘Empire State of Mind,’ Hova raps, “I’m the new Sinatra / And since I made it here / I can make it anywhere.” And he didn’t pluck the name from thin air — the NY Times once pointed out the extensive similarities between Jay and Ol’ Blue Eyes, saying in part, “Theirs is the story of the bad boy made very, very good.”

Mr. Drip Noodle/Mr. Oddpong/Mr. Stench (Johnny Depp)

Depp uses nonsensical names like Mr. Drip Noodle, Mr. Oddpong and Mr. Stench — not because they’re bizarre characters in his upcoming films, but because it amuses him when a front desk clerk or a concierge says them out loud. “It’s hilarious to get a wake-up call at some ludicrous hour,” he once said, “and the guy has to say, ‘Good morning, Mr. Stench’ or ‘Good morning, Mr. Drip Noodle, you have to get up now.’”

Penny Lane (Fergie)

The Black Eyed Peas singer is either a big Beatles fan, or an admirer of band aid (she wasn’t a groupie!) Penny Lane in the movie ‘Almost Famous.’

Bella Lovelace (Lindsay Lohan)

LiLo has a special affinity for the word “bella” — the phrase “La Bella Vita” is tattooed on her lower back, and several years ago she released a single called ‘A Beautiful Life (La Bella Vita).’ And in 2010, LiLo was set to play iconic porn star Linda Lovelace in the biopic ‘Inferno’ — but then, thanks to her litany of self-imposed legal woes, she lost the gig.

Prince Albert (Ozzy Osbourne)

Rock’s erstwhile “prince of darkness” took his phony name from the slang for a male genital piercing. (We’d go into more detail, but since you’re already on the internet and everything, we’re pretty sure you can find it for yourself.)

Princess Jasmine (Kim Kardashian)

Hollywood’s most famous professional attentionista uses the name of the shapely girl in Disney’s ‘Aladdin.’ Looking at the photo below, is it any wonder?

Slappy White (Chris Rock)

The comedian mixed funny and historic with his pseudonym, which pays homage to groundbreaking African-American comic Melvin “Slappy” White.

Arnold Schwarzenegger (George Clooney)

One well-known celeb using another well-known celeb’s name? Very sly, sir. “It was the funniest thing in the world, because they knew I wasn’t Mr. Schwarzenegger,” Clooney once said, “but they had to call me that and it was really enjoyable watching their faces when they did.”
