Actors Who Were Beyond Perfect For Their Roles

Daniel Day-Lewis Is Abraham Lincoln

It’s no surprise that Daniel Day-Lewis won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2013 for his role in Lincoln. Even without all of the makeup, the two naturally share very similar features, and apparently a surprisingly similar temperament. Although Day-Lewis did lose some weight required to achieve Lincoln’s frame, he did not require flats in order to meet his height requirements.

Day-Lewis also used his personal method acting technique that says he does not fully understand. Nor does he try to explain to others how to fully come into character. It’s safe to say he’s the most convincing Lincoln filmdom has ever seen and will maintain that title for the foreseeable future.
