Sexy Saturday: Daniel Day-Lewis

Birthday: April 29

First, let me be honest: I was pretty sure I hated this man before I saw Lincoln. (Which only goes to show how great he is at playing a really bad man)

He is a wonderful actor and his speeches are heartfelt and poetic (his father was poet laureate in England!)

20130206-104547.jpgFun Fact:
According to Harvey Weinstein, Day-Lewis was taking time off to work as a cobbler in Florence, Italy when Weinstein, director Martin Scorsese and star Leonardo DiCaprio lured him into coming back to New York “on false pretenses” so they could persuade him to accept lead role in “Gangs of New York”.

During “The Last of the Mohicans” he built a canoe, learned to track and skin animals, and perfected the use of a 12-pound flintlock gun, which he took everywhere he went, even to a Christmas dinner.

If you haven’t seen Lincoln, yet, I HIGHLY recommend it.

Daniel Day Lewis’ acceptance speech at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. (my favorite part is around 1:50 when he addresses his wife, Rebecca)
