Daniel Day-Lewis, one of the greatest living actors, won't be acting anymore

LOS ANGELES — Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from acting, his spokeswoman said in a statement Tuesday.

The British and Irish citizen "will no longer be working as an actor."

"He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years," said his representative Leslee Dart.

"This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject."

The 60-year-old won three best actor Academy Awards for his roles in "My Left Foot," (1989) "There Will be Blood," (2007) and "Lincoln" (2013).

Day-Lewis has been married to film-maker Rebecca Miller since 1996 with whom he has two sons and he also has another son from a previous relationship with actress Isabelle Adjani.

Day-Lewis will make a final appearance later this year in Paul Thomas Anderson's film "Phantom Thread" about the fashion world in London in the 1950s

This isn't the first time he has announced his retirement, as some noted.

During a previous "break" in the 1990s, Lewis worked in Florence, Italy as an apprentice shoemaker.

Assuming that this time is the real thing, he will most certainly be missed.
