Daniel Day-Lewis, generally regarded as one of the finest thespians ever to grace the screen or stage, has announced his retirement from acting at the age of 60.
“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor,” his spokesperson confirmed in a statement to Variety. “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 Brit, who has three children with director Rebecca Miller, is the only performer ever to win three Best Actor Oscars: for the title role in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, his turn as a ruthless oil tycoon in There Will Be Blood, and his portrayal of the physically disabled writer and artist Christy Brown in My Left Foot.
Here's one of his best scenes...please don't go Daniel!
