June 20 (UPI) -- Three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from acting.

The film star's publicist, Leslee Dart, released a statement announcing the news Tuesday. 

"Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor," Dart said. "He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject."

His final film, an untitled drama directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, is set for release in theaters on Dec. 25.

Day-Lewis, 60, won his Oscars for his work in the films Lincoln, There Will Be Blood and My Left Foot.

His other credits include Nine, Gangs of New York, Age of Innocence, My Beautiful Laundrette, A Room With a View, The Last of the Mohicans, In the Name of the Father and The Crucible.
