Oliver Stone Says He'd Be 'Vilified' in Today's Hollywood Due to Cancel Culture

Oliver Stone is opening up about cancel culture and how he probably would be among the ones canceled if he were just starting out in Hollywood right now.

The 73-year-old Oscar-winning filmmaker is known for writing movies like Scarface and Midnight Express, as well as directing films like Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, JFK, and Wall Street, among others.

In a new interview with the SiriusXM radio show Jim Norton & Sam Roberts, Stone was asked about “modern Hollywood.”

“I’m really out of touch. I can tell you that if I made any of my films, I don’t think I’d last. I’d be vilified. I’d be attacked. Shamed,” he said. “Whatever you want to call that… culture, cancel f—ing culture. I mean it’s just impossible.”

“I would have had to step on so many sensitivities,” he added. “You have to have some freedom to make a movie, unfortunately. You have to be rude. You can be bad. And you’re going to have to do these things like step on toes. Holy cow. Do you think I could have made any one of those films?”

Stone was accused of sexual misconduct by actresses Patricia Arquette and Melissa Gilbert back in 2017.
