Daniel Day-Lewis: Lincoln was 'vulnerable'

Jan 14 2013, 4:08am CST | by

Daniel Day-Lewis thinks Abraham Lincoln was ''vulnerable''.

The award-winning actor - who picked up the Best Actor prize at the Golden Globe Awards yesterday (13.01.13) - plays the pioneering US president who abolished slavery in Steven Spielberg's biopic 'Lincoln' and while the notorious figure in history is known for his strong views, Daniel also thinks he had a lot of ''compassion''.

He explained to Total Film magazine: ''I think there's a great vulnerability which co-exists with [Lincoln's] strength. Quite apart from his own tough upbringing, he had a deep sense of compassion and empathy for people and creatures that remained with him throughout his life.

''It was his essence that those two conflicting things existed side by side, and they probably gnawed at him in such a way that he couldn't have survived, regardless of the assassination.''

The film has also already won Daniel, 55, Best Actor at the Critics' Choice Awards - as well as gaining Best Adapted Screenplay for Tony Kushner's script - and leads the way at this year's Oscars and BAFTAs with 22 nominations overall.

Director Steven previously expressed how wonderful Daniel's portrayal of Lincoln is and thinks he put in an ''incredible'' amount of effort to get the character spot on.

He said: ''Daniel does incredible preparation when he tackles any role. He delivers Lincoln as I imagine. He really honoured Lincoln by reading so much about him, even more than I ever did.

''He came up with his interpretation based on everything he read and everything he experienced.''

Top 10 Jack Nicholson Films

Aug 13 2014 6:02am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Like so many contemporary Hollywood greats, Jack Nicholson started his career under the guidance of B-movie legend Roger Corman. After about a decade of acting in various exploitation films and minor flirtations with mainstream Hollywood, Nicholson wrote The Trip, a psychedelic LSD fuelled movie, produced and directed by Corman and starring Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper. This clearly laid the foundations for Nicholson's breakthrough into the mainstream when he appeared alongside Fonda a ...

Well that was a bloodbath

Feb 25 2013 12:55am CST | Source: tnmc

My best year predicting the Oscars, I got 21 out of 24 right. Usually I average around 17 right. This year? An abysmal 9 correct picks. Nine. That was just all kinds of ugly. That said, I enjoyed the show a lot more when it wasn't being completely predictable. I've said for years that I enjoy the Oscars the most when things are going off the rails. Bizarre choices for the show, weird clothes and inexplicable winners make me happy ...
