CANNES -- Director Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which made its debut here at the Cannes Film Festival, provided an easy segue into personal finance during interview rounds this week. WalletPop pounced on the chance by asking Stone, a three-time Oscar winner, what financial advice his stockbroker father Louis gave him.

"Don't tell the truth," Stone answered at the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. "He said, 'Never tell the truth. It will only get you in trouble.' My father was a believer, as were many in the 1950s, of keeping a low profile, which I didn't pay much attention to obviously."
