Brian does as Tiffani
Former Beverly Hills 90210 star Brian Austin Green has dropped his fake middle name. The handsome actor denies reports that he is following another young star, former girlfriend Tiffani-Amber Thiessen who dropped her Amber. Says Green, "I can't make any sense of Tiffani myself. Her real name is Tiffani-Amber Thiessen. But my name is Brian Green by birth. Austin was made up by my parents when I was nine, because there was another Brian Green in the Screen Actors Guild. Imagine doing a show for 10 years that's this hugely successful thing," he continues, "and every time you pick up a magazine, you say, 'That's not me! Who the ***** is that?' I feel so corny and ridiculous when I introduce myself to somebody and say, 'Hi, I'm Brian Austin Green' I can't do it anymore." Laughing, he adds, "That's the only reason I'm trying to slowly lose the Austin. It's not like a big 'Ooh, maybe 90210 audience members will not realize it's me' or 'Ooh, I'm being slick.'"
