Spielberg, didn't appear to be present, and apparently loaned his yacht for Day-Lewis and his family to enjoy. In a recent interview with Huffington Post, Spielberg, 66, revealed that Leonardo DiCaprio helped persuade Day-Lewis to star in Lincoln, after turning down the same years before.

"I was having dinner with Leonardo DiCaprio, who is a family friend of myself and my wife and he was over at our house and said, 'What is happening with Lincoln?' And I told him the whole story with Daniel, about how he had turned me down many years ago," the director recalled. "And the next day Leo called me in the office and gave me Daniel's cell phone number. Leo had called Daniel and said, 'You have just got to talk to this guy.' And that's what started it rolling."
