Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the greatest actors not just of his generation, but in the history of film.
One person who knows that more than a lot of people is his half brother Sean Lewis.
The only problem is Sean will never be able to voice his admiration to Daniel directly.
And hasn't been able to since 1994 according to Sean in a new interview.
“I made a terrible mistake by helping an author who was writing a so-called biography of Dan. I only gave him my book [a biography of his father, C. Day Lewis: An English Literary Life, which Sean wrote in 1980]. I wanted him to get the facts right, and he didn’t even do that – he got birthdays on the wrong days. It was full of errors. Anyway, he acknowledged my help in the foreword and Dan saw that and completely blew me out of the water. He phoned me up and told me to 'fucking get a life. fuck off,’ he said. I couldn’t get a word in. That was in 1994, and that was our last conversation.”
Daniel Day-Lewis is a notorious private person, so it probably isn't the easiest thing in the world to get a hold of him.
But if he could, would Sean like to make amends with him?
“Yes, I would like that. Very much.”
How about it, Mr. Day-Lewis?
Will you give your family a chance??
