Did You Hear? Daniel Day-Lewis Quit Acting
One of the most gifted actors on the planet, Day-Lewis has the high distinction of being the single performer in history to win three Oscar awards for Best Actor. His latest Best Actor Oscar came in 2013 when he played US President Abraham Lincoln for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. His first came in 1990 for his role as Christy Brown, an artist and writer in My Left Foot. Then, in 2008, he portrayed a silver miner-turend-oilman in There Will Be Blood which gave him his second Best Actor nod.
And now, the three time Oscar award winner, Daniel Day-Lewis, has announced that he will no longer act in his career. The news was confirmed by Leslee Dart, his spokeswoman. It was a private decision that was made and no reasons were given for his retirement.
Always in high demand, the 60-year old was never shy about turning down roles. He was very selective of his projects and would even wait years in between gigs.
Although he’s retiring, you will still get to see him on the big screen one more time with his upcoming untitled drama that’s based in the world of high fashion. It’s expected to be released on Christmas Day, December 25, 2017.
He’s married to director and writer Rebecca Miller and has three children, Gabriel-Kane, Cashel, and Ronan Cal.
