Who can be romantically linked to Daniel Day-Lewis...and how closely?

(e.g. Daniel Day-Lewis)

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)

 

Lived together with Isabelle Adjani, who gave birth to their son Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis on 9 April 1995, from 1989 to 1994.

 

He was Jonathan Demme's first choice for the part of Andrew Beckett in Philadelphia (1993). He turned the part down to work on In the Name of the Father (1993) and Tom Hanks was cast in Philadelphia (1993) instead. Day-Lewis earned an Oscar nomination for best actor in In the Name of the Father (1993), but Hanks won the best actor Oscar for Philadelphia (1993), the part Day-Lewis turned down.

 

[on creating a characterization] The intention is always the same. To try to discover life in its entirety, or at least create for yourself the illusion that you have, which might give you some chance of convincing other people of it. It`s the same thing each time, but it requires totally different work in the process of achieving that. You are set on a path that`s strewn with obstacles, but getting over them is the joy of the work. So it`s impossible to think in terms of difficulty: it all seems utterly impossible, but the pleasure is in trying to forge ahead anyway.

 

[On accepting the best actor Oscar for `There Will be Blood`] This sprang like a sapling out of the mad, beautiful head of Paul Thomas Anderson.
