Many actors and actresses rarely use their given name from birth. This may be because it is hard to pronounce and therefore it may be hard to remember. Also, actors and actresses want names that roll off the tongue. So, many actors and actresses change their name to something easier to remember and say.

However, they may also change their names to something different if their given name is the same name as another famous actor or actress. For instance, Katy Perry was born Kate Hudson. Since there was already a famous actress named Kate Hudson, she changed her name to Katy Perry. Another example is that Ellen Burstyn changed her name to Edna Rae Gillooly to make it simpler.
