    Sean Stone, son of controversial director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam in Iran last week and says he's already experiencing a Hollywood backlash.

    The ceremony was held in Isfahan, where he is researching a documentary. He now goes by the name of Sean Christopher Ali Stone.
    He told Page Six: "I've already experienced the reverse of anti-Semitism, having people within the film industry express a reluctance to work with me now that I have said a simple prayer, ‘There is no God but God, and Mohammed is his messenger.' I am sure I have [bleeped] off some powerful people." Speaking over dinner at Barrio 47, Sean told us, "Having read the Koran and having been around the Islamic culture, especially in Iran, I do believe that Mohammed is a prophet of the same god worshipped by other religions.

    "I am of a Jewish bloodline, a baptized Christian who accepts Christ's teachings, the Jewish Old Testament and the Holy Koran. I believe there is one God, whether called Allah or Jehovah or whatever you wish to name him. He creates all peoples and religions. I consider myself a Jewish Christian Muslim.

    "What I am trying to do is open up a dialogue about religion. There is such Islamophobia in the West. Islam is not a religion of violence any more than Judaism or Christianity is."

    He said his dad welcomed the move.

    "My dad said, ‘Allah be with you.' My father understands that I am trying to bridge certain gaps and bring about peace."
    But he has been shocked by the reaction from others. Sean, about to release his horror movie "Graystone," said, "I didn't realize I would be so vilified. It is almost like I am a criminal for having accepted Islam. I didn't realize Islamophobia was that deep. People have speculated that I have done this because I am from a spoiled family or that I am lost and trying to find myself. That is ridiculous.

    "I don't care if I get criticized. If I can open up a debate about religion and create some understanding, then it is worth it."

    Ah, the extents some will go to in an effort to get their name in the press. I guess checking into 'rehab' has become too cliche. Perhaps a 'photo op' at a stoning would be nice, after all, nothing says peace and tolerance like watching a woman have her skull crushed by a frenzied mob of rock throwing fanatics.
