Today we wish the great Daniel Day-Lewis a happy 64th birthday! It always surprises me that he's basically my Mom's age but I suppose it shouldn't -- he's been making movies for awhile, after all. I was trying this morning to figure out when I became aware of him -- it had to be The Last of the Mohicans I suppose, although I might've already been watching the Oscars in 1990 when everybody went nuts for his work in My Left Foot. Sidenote: I have never, still not to this day, seen My Left Foot. I guess I probably should? Has anyone seen it lately -- does it hold up? Anyway our pictures today are of course from our beloved My Beautiful Laundrette, which came before all of those films but which I didn't see until much, much later. If I was gonna do a Top 5 of his performances though I'd have a hard time leaving "Johnny" off -- it's such an atypical turn for him, sweet and low-key. You'll never convince me that DDL is overrated as an actor -- he's our best, really and truly.
