Daniel Day-Lewis says he's retiring from acting

The movie has proved to be a big hit

Acting Legend Daniel Day-Lewis has officially announced his retirement from acting, stunning legions of fans, many of whom consider him one of the greatest actors to ever appear on screen.

He previously won Academy Awards for his roles as a paraplegic Irish writer in "My Left Foot" (1989) and a greedy early 20th century oil baron in "There Will Be Blood" (2007).

The renowned actor will step down from the profession at the age of 60 following decades of lauded performances, three of which earned him Oscars for Best Actor.

This statement seems par for the course with Day-Lewis, doesn't it? But Day-Lewis has also always been an exceptionally deliberate performer who often spends years preparing for a role, crafting his characters with an uncommon, methodical completeness.

There's one more film loaded in the chamber - the Paul Thomas Anderson flick Phantom Thread, but after that one he say's he's done.

Long road: Koepka's journey now includes a US Open title
A fourth place finish at the 2014 US Open had given Koepka a taste of what it might be like to challenge for a major. Never mind "The Home of Golf", Scotland nearly represented "The End of Golf" to Brooks Koepka .

Others suspected that Day-Lewis might pursue political ambitions. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the may years. Dart's statement continued "This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject".

Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and wife Rebecca Miller arrive at the Oscars in 2013.

It's hard to think of this film as one of Daniel Day-Lewis's finest performances, as he so perfectly embodies the role of Abraham Lincoln that he nearly becomes Lincoln while watching.

The record three time Oscar victor is a patron of the Wicklow Hospice Foundation and was responsible for bringing the the Premiere of "Lincoln" to Dublin with all the proceeds of the night going to the Wicklow charity.
