In 1988, Michael Douglas won an Oscar for playing Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stone's "Wall Street."
On Wednesday, Douglas returned to the New York Stock Exchange to ring the closing bell and deliver a speech on behalf of The Windward School, where his children attend.
Douglas kicked off his speech in the Euronext board room by jokingly saying, " It’s so nice to be back at the scene of the crime."
Douglas' speech was in order to elevate the conversation around dyslexia and celebrate the White Plains-based school's expansion to a Manhattan campus.
The Windward School is an independent school for grades first through ninth, tailored for students with language based disabilities – primarily dyslexia.
Not only does one of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones' children attend the school, but so does Harvey Weinstein's offspring, a source tells Business Insider.
Douglas says he and wife knew the school was a place they wanted to support because the academic program is designed to enable 98 percent of their students to return to mainstream education.
