London: After his Oscar-winning turn as former US President Abraham Lincoln, actor Daniel Day-Lewis has said he is taking a break from films. The London-born actor, 55, wants a break because he fears he could never top his performance in 'Lincoln', reported Daily Star.

His role as the US President made him the first star in history to scoop three Best Actor awards.

"I don't have any projects lined up I haven't got anything planned for a length of time. I can't imagine what I would try to do after playing Lincoln," he said.
