Daniel Day-Lewis: Where Is He Now?
Do you remember Daniel Day-Lewis? He was one of the most acclaimed actors of his generation, winning three Oscars for his roles in There Will Be Blood, Lincoln, and My Left Foot. He was known for his method acting, transforming himself physically and mentally into his characters. He played a ruthless oilman, a visionary president, a disabled artist, and many more. He was a legend in Hollywood, but he decided to quit acting in 2017. 😮
So what has he been doing since then? Where is he now? Well, he has been living a very low-key life, away from the spotlight. He rarely makes public appearances, and he doesn't give interviews. He has been spending time with his wife, Rebecca Miller, who is a director and writer. They have two sons together, Ronan and Cashel. He also has another son, Gabriel-Kane, from his previous relationship with actress Isabelle Adjani. 🙌
But recently, he was spotted in New York City for the first time in years. He looked unrecognizable, with long gray hair, sunglasses, and a trucker hat. He was wearing a yellow sweatsuit, a black hoodie, and a blue striped shirt. He was talking on his phone, while walking with his wife in West Village. He seemed relaxed and happy, enjoying his retirement from acting. 😊
Why Did He Retire?
Many fans were shocked and saddened when Daniel Day-Lewis announced his retirement from acting in 2017. He said it was a private decision, and he didn't give any further explanation. But some people speculated that he was tired of the pressure and expectations that came with his fame. He was also known for being very selective about his roles, only taking on projects that challenged him creatively. He once said that he needed to believe in the value of what he was doing, and that the work had to seem vital and irresistible to him. 🤔
His last film was Phantom Thread, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who also worked with him on There Will Be Blood. The film was about a fashion designer who falls in love with a young waitress. It was nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Day-Lewis. But he lost to Gary Oldman for his performance in Darkest Hour. Day-Lewis said that making Phantom Thread was a very emotional experience for him, and that he felt a sense of sadness after finishing it. He said he didn't know he was going to stop acting before making the film, but it settled on him afterwards. 😢
Will He Ever Come Back?
Some fans are still hoping that Daniel Day-Lewis will change his mind and come back to acting someday. After all, he has retired before, only to return with more amazing performances. In 1997, he took a break from acting and moved to Italy to learn how to make shoes. He came back in 2002 with Gangs of New York, directed by Martin Scorsese. He also took a five-year hiatus after making The Ballad of Jack and Rose in 2005, which was directed by his wife. He returned in 2007 with There Will Be Blood, which many consider his masterpiece.
But this time seems different. Daniel Day-Lewis seems very content with his decision to retire from acting. He has not expressed any interest or intention to come back to the screen. He has not signed any new projects or contracts. He has not attended any awards shows or events. He has not given any interviews or statements about his future plans. He has simply disappeared from the public eye, living his life as he pleases.
So maybe we should respect his choice and let him be happy. Maybe we should appreciate what he has given us over the years: some of the most memorable and powerful performances ever seen on film. Maybe we should celebrate his legacy as one of the greatest actors of all time.
