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.” [Is the word you’re looking for “anti-Islamism”? 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.]
Sean says that his father has been accepting of his newfound faith. Sean’s latest project, a horror movie he directed entitled Greystone, comes out next week.
