Hollywood legend Daniel Day-Lewis has broken his arm in a motorcycle accident, his spokesperson has confirmed. The Oscar-winning actor appeared to be wincing in pain as he made his way to his New York City home sporting a cast and a hospital bracelet.

And his representative has now confirmed to People magazine that the 60-year-old star has broken his arm, but reassured that the There Will be Blood actor “is fine”.

People.com quoted a source as saying that Day-Lewis was wearing a helmet and that the crash “wasn’t his fault”.

The crash comes a few months after the screen legend announced his retirement.

Leslee Dart, the actor’s spokeswoman, told the Variety magazine in June that the 60-year-old star “will no longer be working as an actor”.

“He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years,” Dart said. “This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”

Day-Lewis is often called the master of method acting. He is known to be extremely selective about his roles and is the only performer to have ever won three best actor Oscars.
