Actor Daniel Day-Lewis has officially announced his retirement.
In a statement, the British star’s spokeswoman Leslee Dart first told Variety on Tuesday, “Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor.”
The only man to win three Best Actor Academy Awards, the acclaimed 60-year-old performer will star one last time on screen in “Phantom Thread,” premiering later this year.
“He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years,” the statement said. “This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.” No further reason for his retirement was offered.
