Lincoln director Steven Spielberg has revealed how he thought he had lost Daniel Day-Lewis for the role of Abraham Lincoln after the actor turned him down. However, Steven claims that Leonardo DiCaprio some worked his magic and persuaded Daniel to accept the part.
Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln
 
Talking to USA Today Spielberg explained, “He said, 'I could never play Abraham Lincoln’. That it was just too intimidating. 'What if I don't succeed? I don't want to bring down the image of a great man'.”
 
He added, “Leo DiCaprio was at my house for dinner one night. It was just myself, my wife and Leo. And he says, 'Hey, what's going on with your Lincoln project?' I told him the sad story.”

Steven continued, “I had one shot at Daniel and he had declined. And that was that. Leo just listened. And then the next morning he called me at my office. He said, here's Daniel's cellphone number, he's expecting your call. Leo has never told me to this day what he said to Daniel. But that began this wonderful journey.”
 
Daniel Day-Lewis can be seen starring alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tommy Lee Jones in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, which is out now in the US and is released in the UK on January 25, 2013.
