Retired acting legend Daniel Day-Lewis has been photographed in public for the first time in years.
The reclusive three-time Oscar winner, who directed his last film in 2017, tried to remain incognito while running errands in New York City on Thursday, wearing dark sunglasses and a black baseball cap.
But the 66-year-old star’s identity was given away by the fact that he was using a clamshell phone – a device he quickly became known for use in 2018.
Day-Lewis was also spotted signing his name as he picked up his package during his day trip in the Big Apple.
The ‘Gangs of New York’ star is famous for her edgy fashion sense and didn’t disappoint on Thursday’s outing.
In addition to the baseball cap, Day-Lewis defied his age by sporting a black and blue tracksuit.
The British-born actor, who shaved his head in 2017, now sports silver shoulder-length locks that he lets flow freely.
On Friday, the star was spotted for the second time in as many days, donning the same hat and glasses and walking hand-in-hand with longtime wife Rebecca Miller, 60.
The ‘My Left Foot’ star spends his time between New York City and Annamoe, Ireland with Miller, to whom he has been married since 1996. The couple have sons Ronan, 24, and Cashel, 21.
Ronan recently graduated from Yale while Cashel is currently attending Oberlin College in Ohio.
Day-Lewis is also father to 28-year-old son Gabriel from a previous relationship with French star Isabelle Adjani.
Gabriel has followed in his father’s footsteps and is now pursuing an acting career.
Meanwhile, Day-Lewis retired from the business in June 2017 after a glittering career that spanned more than three decades.
The star shocked Tinseltown with the announcement, which he made when he was just 60.
“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor,” his representatives said in a statement read back then. “He is extraordinarily grateful to all of his staff and audience over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will comment further on the matter.”
He later admitted he wasn’t sure why he retired from acting, stating in November 2017, “I haven’t figured it out. But it settled with me and it’s just there.”
“I wanted to draw a line. I didn’t want to get dragged into another project again,” he shared. “All my life I’ve talked about quitting acting and I don’t know why this time was different, but the impulse to quit took hold of me and it became a compulsion. It was something I had to do.”
Since then, the star has avoided the limelight and has only been photographed in public a handful of times.
The Post has reached out to Day-Lewis’ agent for information on the star’s recent activities.
Day-Lewis is the only Hollywood star in history to have won three Academy Awards for Best Actor.
He received his first Oscar in 1989 for his role in My Left Foot before securing a second statuette in 2007 for his role in There Will Be Blood. Five years later, he again won the coveted statuette for his role in Lincoln.
Day-Lewis was last seen on screens in the 2017 Paul Thomas Anderson film Phantom Thread.
