Daniel Day-Lewis, Steven Spielberg Talk Lincoln

Submitted by on November 29, 2012 – 8:31 pmNo Comment

Academy Award-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis is famously publicity shy, but he agreed to his first interview on the movie Lincoln with 60 Minutes and Leslie Stahl. In a 60 Minutes Overtime web exclusive, both Day-Lewis and director Steven Spielberg share their thoughts on the making of the film, as well as the 16th president himself.

Commenting on the beloved and charismatic Lincoln, Day-Lewis says he ”never, ever felt that depth of love for another human being that [he] never met,” adding that “that’s probably the effect Lincoln has on most people.”

Unfortunately, that’s about all the insight that we get from the actor, aside from the fact that it was difficult saying goodbye to the character. Also, Spielberg discusses historical accuracy and the musical scoring of the film (he worked with long-time collaborator John Williams).

Maybe six minutes just isn’t enough time to really get into this subject (and half that time was spent talking about Jaws). Or maybe Day-Lewis didn’t say much else during the interview. Either way, I hope next time we’ll get a more in-depth look at the process of these great artists!
