Daniel Day Lewis retires from acting

THERE WILL BE BLOOD!




Daniel Day-Lewis is to retire from acting, according to his spokeswoman.

The 60-year-old British actor, who has won three Oscars, will make his final screen appearance in Phantom Thread, a fashion drama that reunites him with Paul Thomas Anderson, director of There Will Be Blood.

“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor,” a statement to Variety from his spokeswoman Leslee Dart read. “He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”

The star has previously taken extended breaks from the industry, including a late-90s stint as an apprentice shoemaker in Florence. “My life as it is away from the movie set is a life where I follow my curiosity just as avidly as when I am working,” he said in a 2008 interview with the Observer. “It is with a very positive sense that I keep away from the work for a while. It has always seemed natural to me that that, in turn, should help me in the work that I do.”

4. He did a terrific job in Lincoln

If only he had remembered to be taller.

His voice seemed to exactly much the historical descriptions of what Lincoln sounded like.

6. My favorite Daniel Day Lewis movie

is The Unbearable Lightness of Being. He was completely believable as a womanizing Czech doctor. And he was so beautiful in that film.

His portrayal of Lincoln will be the definitive one for the foreseeable future.
