Daniel Day-Lewis Announces He's Leaving Acting For Good

One of the greatest actors of all-time, the three-time Oscar winner, Daniel Day-Lewis, has announced his retirement from acting.

The star of such films as Gangs of New York, There Will Be Blood, and Lincoln, reunited with director Paul Thomas Anderson for one final film, titled Phantom Thread, which is set to be released this December.  The film is a drama set in the fashion world of 1950's London where a dressmaker is commissioned to design for members of high society and the Royal Family.  Day-Lewis intends to help promote this final film, according to a person familiar with his plans.

He did not give a reason for his retirement. In a statement, Day-Lewis’ spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, confirmed the news: “Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. 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.

Even though Day-Lewis has notoriously been very picky about the roles he chooses, he has become widely considered to be one of, if not the greatest actors to hit the stage.  His work will be missed.

Be sure to check out Phantom Thread on December 25, 2017.
