Three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from acting. This is sad news, and I can only hope that this is somehow preparation for a role in which he plays a man who quits his job…..
The 60-year-old Day-Lewis has played everything from presidents, writers, and gang leaders in a four decades long career . He has one final film awaiting release, an untitled drama set in the world of high fashion which is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2017 . Day-Lewis intends to help promote the movie, according to a person familiar with his plans.
Day-Lewis has 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. ”
