Stone was born in New York City, New York, United States. He is the son of Elizabeth Burkit Cox and film director Oliver Stone. He is of French descent from his father's side.
He converted to Shia Islam in 2012. In an interview with CNN, Stone said that he accepted Muhammad as the seal of the prophets. In an interview with Bill O'Reilly, he added Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's statements about Israel had been misunderstood. Following his conversion, he told a news conference, "It's a mistake to believe that Islam is antagonistic towards Judaism and Christianity. What we need is to understand each other's beliefs and to establish dialogue. The most important thing is I hope I can help Americans to understand the true nature of Islam. I feel good when I enter a mosque. I believe there is only one God and with this view it is not important whether you are Muslim, Christian, or Jewish."
Stone sits on the Board of Advisors for the company MindShare Ventures Group based in New York City. The company is involved in several business areas, including entertainment, commodities, healthcare, real estate, tech and venture capital . He was invited to the Board in 2013 by Founder and Chairman, Ali Naqvi.
