Pictures of famous quitters -- Daniel Day Lewis

Daniel Day-Lewis was missing in action from films for many years. After winning a Best Actor Oscar for My Left Foot in 1989, he appeared in many films up until The Boxer in 1997. He wasn't seen again until 2002's Gangs of New York, then was gone from the movies again until 2005's The Ballad of Jack and Rose. He has since returned to semi-regular acting including oilman Daniel Plainview in 'There Will Be Blood', which earned him another leading man Oscar and as President Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln'.
