>How Michael Douglas became the ’80s icon

THE HAIRDO ”

The slicked-back hair was an early thought [during the making of 1987’s Wall Street],” Douglas says, “but I feared it might be over-the-top for a character named Gekko. Then I happened to go to dinner with my old friend [NBA coach] Pat Riley, and the rest was history.”

“Gordon was too old to hit the weight room in prison. He did a lot of thinking.”
