Daniel Day-Lewis, one of the most widely respected actors of his generation, says he’s retiring from acting.
His representative, Leslee Dart, says in a statement that the 60-year-old performer is “immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years” – but he will not comment further about the decision.
Day-Lewis’ retirement will make the upcoming Phantom Thread his final film. He plays a fashion designer in 1950s London – and teams up again with There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson.
Daniel Day-Lewis has won three Academy Awards and has been nominated five times – winning for performances in My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood and and Lincoln.
