Daniel Day-Lewis, 60, is retiring from acting, it was announced on Tuesday. He is known for movies like, Lincoln, There Will Be Blood and Gangs of New York.
A rep for Day-Lewis 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.”
No explanation for his retirement was given, but this is the second time the Oscar winner has given up film making.
He previously took a break in the late 1990's at which he focused on woodworking and shoe making. He returned to acting following a five-year absence.
It’s not clear if this new retirement will be permanent.
