Oliver Stone’s Son Sean Converts to Islam

Sean Stone, son of U.S. film director Oliver Stone, attends an interview with Reuters TV in Tehran

Sean Stone, the son of director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam last week while on a trip to Iran. Sean, who has done some acting and directing work, says that his Hollywood friends didn't take the news so well and that he is now experiencing "the reverse of anti-Semitism."

Because the opposite of antisemitism would probably be "hating all people who aren't Jews," and there are lots of non-Jews who aren't Muslim either.]"I am of a Jewish … [Read more...]

So much for drinking and doing drugs: Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine says that he can often be found doing yoga before going onstage. "At any Maroon 5 concert, you'll see a room backstage marked yoga," he told Details. "Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state, and when I get on the mat to do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed."

Model Amber Rose, who is dating/possibly engaged to rapper Wiz Khalifa, recently did a radio show interview in Atlanta where the topic of drugs came up. Amber said that her mother and Wiz get along well and smoke pot together. When Amber was asked if she ever partakes, she demurred, saying "I'm a Christian." While I totally get that some people aren't into drugs, I don't really think marijuana comes in the Bible at all. And if she's such a Christian that she can't smoke pot, what's her stance on … [Read more...]

Dolce & Gabbana Think Every Stylish Woman Should Carry a Rosary

Allure magazine recently asked Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana what ten items they think every woman should own.

(I think that's a thing you "follow" and not a thing that you "have," but whatevs.) However, they did have one less expected item: a rosary. "It reminds us of our beloved Sicily, and of the roots and traditions that have become such an important part of our DNA. [A … [Read more...]

In a new interview, actress Lucy Liu says that she's open to religion and curious to learn more about different faiths. Since she works in Hollywood, it seems fitting that she was asked about Scientology.  "I think it's unfortunate when people are against something that can bring so much guidance for people," she says. "I don't know much about Scientology – I know a little bit about it – but if it helps someone become less addicted to something, or not addicted, or if it helps someone reco … [Read more...]
