Having recently watched The Unbearable Lightness of Being, I delved deeper into Day-Lewis’s career and was amazed at this actor’s accomplishments and life management skills. He’s a rare bird for sure and it’s all to the good.
To begin, he’s the only male actor to receive 3 Oscars for Best Actor . . . . think about it, not DeNiro, not Nicholson, not Tracy, not Fonda, not Stewart . . . . only one!
One other actor has won more Best Actor Oscars and she’s the esteemed Kate Hepburn, of course.
