Personal life[edit]

Stone was born in New York City, New York, United States. He is the son of Elizabeth Burkit Cox and film director Oliver Stone.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9] He is of French descent from his father's side.[10]

He converted to Islam in 2012.[3][5][6][7][8][9] In an interview with CNN, Stone said that he accepted Muhammad as the seal of the prophets.[11][12] In an interview with Bill O'Reilly, he added Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's statements about Israel had been misunderstood.[3][9] 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."

He is currently working on a healthcare documentary focusing on Jinns, supernatural entities in the religion of Islam.[13]
