MTV star STEVE-O - real name STEPHEN GILCHRIST GLOVER - created the name Steve-O to avoid any connection with Hollywood actor Danny Glover.
The former Jackass star, notorious for such antics as stapling his scrotum to his thigh, became increasingly annoyed with questions linking him to the Lethal Weapon star, even though the latter is black and Steve-O is white.
Glover tells MTV news, "By the age of eight I was frustrated with that stupid joke, 'Any relation to Danny Glover?' So I eradicated the last name.
"When people ask me what the 'O' stands for, it's very simple. I tell them, 'It stands for f**king nothing, you idiot!"
