If you asked me to guess what type of phone Daniel Day-Lewis prefers, I’d probably answer one of those wind up kind with a removable mouthpiece that you have to shout into and lives in the halls of 1930’s boarding houses. He’s an old timey kind of guy, so of course he’s going to use an old timey telephone. But for some reason, people seem to have forgotten we’re dealing with a man who cobbles his own shoes. It shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that he was seen on a NYC Subway using a flip phone. It’s actually more surprising that he takes the subway at all instead of getting from place to place riding one of those bicycles with a giant front wheel.
A journalist named Karen Han spotted DDL casually handling a dusty relic of a bygone era on a subway train headed downtown and #tooktotwitter to share her the news. Karen even managed to snap a shot of him looking like any normal middle-aged, vaguely hipsterish schlub.
