Rumor Control: Daniel Day-Lewis Is Leaving Acting To Become A Dressmaker

Presumably, he'll still find time to write about comic books for BMD.

According to the New York Post, three-time Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis - who recently announced his retirement from acting - has already landed on a new profession: dressmaker. Says the Post:

"Friends of Daniel Day-Lewis say the Oscar winner hatched his plan to quit acting years ago and was just searching for the right film that would allow him to go out on top. And now there’s buzz in Hollywood his next move could be working as a haute couture dressmaker."

Now, this being the New York Post, we have to take all of the above with a grain of salt. For one thing, they're not the most reliable source when it comes to celebrity gossip. For another, frequent readers of this site already know that Daniel Day-Lewis is scheduled to become Birth.Movies.Death.'s Comic Book News Editor in January, just as soon as he's wrapped his promotional duties for Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread (he already has a Twitter handle set up for the gig and everything).

In any event, we've all been caught off-guard by this news, and are currently working on getting clarification from Daniel Day-Lewis (or DDL, as we refer to him around the BMD offices) as soon as possible. In the meantime, be safe out there: don't be so quick to believe everything you read on the internet. You never know when someone might be pulling your leg.
