Underrated – Daniel Day-Lewis
It may seem crazy to include Day-Lewis on this list because he’s a three-time Oscar winner. Everything he touched in the movie industry turned to gold. His brilliant performances included star turns in Lincoln, There Will Be Blood, and Phantom Thread. Day-Lewis’s consistency is incredible but many people forget about him because he retired.
“Whenever the topic of the greatest actor of our generation comes up, nobody mentions his name,” one fan wrote. “It’s always DeNiro, Penn, Streep, maybe Hanks or Pacino. Nobody ever mentions Lewis. That’s why I say underrated.” This is a great point and maybe it’s also because Day-Lewis is English.
