Daniel Day-Lewis has announced yesterday evening that he will be retiring from acting.

The 60-year-old is the only actor to win three best actor Oscars, as well as being nominated for two Academy Awards.

He received the Oscars for his astounding work in “Lincoln”, “There Will Be Blood”, and “My Left Foot”, while the Academy Award nominations were for “Gangs of New York” and “In The Name of the Father”.

Speaking to Variety, Day-Lewis’ spokeswoman says; “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.”

The upcoming release of “Phanton Thread” in December this year is thought to be his last.
