Here's a reveal that should surprise no one: Best Actor Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, famous for going to any length necessary to flesh out his film roles, actually grew a beard for "Lincoln."
Like he would have worn a fake one?
Asked what it felt like to be wearing a beard during filming, a humorously incredulous Day-Lewis retorted, "What do you mean wearing it? Do you wear your hair?"
The questions got better after that, as Day-Lewis talked about his initial reticence about playing such an iconic American as our 16th president. Thankfully, he got over such feelings of inadequacy.
