Oliver Stone asked Vladimir Putin to be his daughter’s godfather, according to a transcript of a conversation released last month.
The film director was interviewing the Russian president when Putin mentioned the Russian Orthodox tradition that you can’t refuse a request to be a godparent. Stone responded by asking him to take on the role for his 22-year-old daughter.
“Does she want to become an Orthodox Christian?” Putin asked, to which Stone replied, “We’ll make her that.” The conversation then moved on to “homosexual propaganda”.
