This is a sad day indeed. Powerhouse actor, DANIEL DAY-LEWIS, has decided to retire from film. His spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, gave this statement to Variety: “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. ” His last film will be Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Phantom Thread, which releases in theaters on Christmas.
