Melbourne, June 18 : When staying in hotels, celebrities employ an interesting technique to avoid the press or escape fans - check-in pseudonyms.
Stars come up with the oddest aliases when they want to travel in disguise or break away from their fans.
Actress Kate Beckinsale uses 'Sigourney Beaver' as a fake name when she registers in hotels.
"I check in as Sigourney Beaver," Courier Mail quoted her, as saying.
"It was a spur of the moment thing. When I was first asked my name it just came out. I guess it was because I admire the American actress Sigourney Weaver," she added.
However, Beckinsale revealed that the only trouble is that when she travels with her husband he hates her using the alias.
"He doesn't like it when they call to ask him something and they say, 'Hello, Mr Beaver,'" she said.
When Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were together, they would sometimes use odd aliases when they stayed in hotels.
And their pet pseudonym was Mr and Mrs Ross Vegas.
Hollywood hottie Johnny Depp resorts to 'Mr Stench' when travelling incognito.
"It's hilarious to get a wake-up call at some ludicrous hour, like 5.30am, and the guy has to say, 'Good morning Mr Stench'," he said.
