Oliver Stone speaks at Hill School graduation

POTTSTOWN, Pa. -

One of Hollywood's elite gave some final advice to some of Montgomery County's finest high-school students.

Academy Award winning producer and director Oliver Stone addressed the class of 2013 Saturday morning at The Hill School in Pottstown.

Stone -- who graduated from the Hill School himself in 1964 --- is famous for such movies as Platoon and Wall Street.

He joked with the grads saying -- times may have been tough during his tenure on the Hill but it's made him who he is today.

"Over time I came through Hill's crisis and I had success..far greater success than I ever imagined. Eventually as life goes on, you'll fall down but have more rising up," Stone said.

Stone was also honored as the school's 15th recipient of the Sixth Form Leadership Award in a private ceremony last night.
