Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone recently decried the “fragile” nature of Hollywood in an interview with the New York Times, as reported by The Hill.
In the interview, the 73-year-old Stone criticized the current culture of Hollywood as having become “too fragile” and “too sensitive,” adding that nowadays “you can’t make a film without a sensitivity counselor.”
“Everything has become too fragile, too sensitive,” the director explained. “You can’t make a film without a COVID adviser, you can’t make a film without a sensitivity counselor, it’s ridiculous.” He later went on to describe Hollywood as “politically correct [expletive],” and compared it to “an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ tea party.”
Stone is considered to be among the greatest directors in history, with such iconic films throughout the 1980s as “Platoon” and “Wall Street,” and was also the screenwriter for “Scarface.” He also directed a trilogy of films focused on the American presidency, with “JFK” in 1991, “Nixon” in 1995, and “W.,” focusing on the life and presidency of George W. Bush, in 2008.
