You may not know Norma Jean Mortensen or Demetria Guynes, but you certainly know the people that were born with these names. Unfortunately for a lot of celebrities, their parents didn’t have their future star status in mind when they named them. For those who weren’t fortunate enough to have a marketable name, they had to switch to the stage names we know and love today. How many real names of these famous celebrities do you know?
Real Name: Katy Hudson
Unfortunately for Katy Perry, by the time she came to stardom, another actress already called dibs on the name Kate Hudson. So she was forced to change it or forever be confused with the star of How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. She used her mother’s maiden name instead.
