Irish Central is reporting that Daniel Day-Lewis will retire to his Wicklow Farm if he wins his third Oscar. The genius actor wants some time off. The site reports:

Set to make history as the first man to win a third best actor Oscar, Lewis has confirmed his plans for a sabbatical.

The 55-year-old star, nominated for the role of Abraham Lincoln, has told friends he does not expect to appear in another movie before he turns 60.

Instead he plans to focus on family life at his remote 50-acre estate in Co Wicklow, south of Dublin.

He has told friends he wants to: ‘learn rural skills’ such as stonemasonry.

Previously awarded an Oscar for My Left Foot and There Will Be Blood, Day-Lewis has reportedly told his agents that he is on ‘sabbatical.' He currently has no films officially in production.

A third Oscar win will see Day-Lewis make history and place him above several Hollywood legends.

Spencer Tracy, Marlon Brando, Gary Cooper, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, Fredric March and Sean Penn are the other eight actors to have won two Oscars.

There is no indication of what he will do if he doesn't win the Oscar!(Photograph Below Is Wicklow Area)
