Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from acting, according to a statement given by the spokeswoman for the three-time Academy Award winner Tuesday, shocking the entertainment world.

Day-Lewis, 60, whose last Oscar came in 2013 after portraying Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's biopic that also won best picture, did not give a reason for his retirement in the statement, noted Variety.

"Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor," spokeswoman Leslee Dart said, according to Variety. "He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject."

Day-Lewis will appear in the film "Phantom Thread," which is scheduled to debut in the United Kingdom next February.

He is the only man to win three best actor Oscars, also capturing the award for his role in "My Left Foot" in 1989 and "There Will Be Blood" in 2007, CNN reported. He was also nominated for his roles in "In the Name of the Father" in 1993 and "Gangs of New York" in 2002.

Day-Lewis, who has both British and Ireland citizenship, was knighted in 2014, according to the BBC News. Variety said that while he is still in high demand, the actor has always been notoriously selective in the roles that he takes, often waiting years between projects.

Fans took to social media to share their feelings about the award-winning actor.
