Daniel Day-Lewis Calls It a Day


The actor's last production, "Phantom Thread" is set to release in December, a London based movie on the 1950's fashion world.

"Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor", spokeswoman Leslee Dart said, according to Variety. Why the sudden decision was taken is not clear. One for 2007's There Will Be Blood, another for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln and the third for playing an artist in My Left Foot.

No one believes you, Daniel Day-Lewis.

Whether you know him from the roles mentioned above or from one of his wildly successful other films, including Gangs of New York, The Last of the Mohicans, or Nine, Daniel Day-Lewis has had an incredible career.

60-year-old actor is the only man to have won three Oscars.

Day-Lewis plays turn-of-the century oil prospector Daniel Plainview, whom the film follows from his beginnings as a silver miner to a finale almost 30 years later. He made his film debut in the unaccredited role of 1971's Sunday Bloody Sunday and has since been catapulted into the ranks of the Hollywood elite.

"For My Left Foot", he spent weeks living in a wheelchair, and while shooting "Gangs of New York" he was known for sharpening knives between takes to capture the menace of his character Bill "The Butcher" Cutting.

In 2002, he told The Guardian: "I didn't really want to be involved with films".

Day-Lewis lives in Ireland on his family farm in County Wicklow.

Day-Lewis has been married to film-maker Rebecca Miller since 1996 with whom he has two sons and he also has another son from a previous relationship with actress Isabelle Adjani.
