Video: President Barack Obama plays Daniel Day-Lewis playing Obama in 'biopic'
Monday 29 April 2013
Never one to take himself too seriously on the right occasions, American President Barack Obama has 'played' himself in a spoof biopic.
In the short skit shown at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, the President pretends to be the actor Daniel Day-Lewis who is 'playing' him in the film Obama.
Pretending to be Day-Lewis, Obama says: 'Was it hard playing Obama? I'll be honest, yeah it was,' before adding 'you wouldn't believe how long it takes to put these ears on'.
The spoof was filmed by Steven Spielberg and features the director talking about his inspiration for casting 'Day-Lewis' in the role of Obama.
Day-Lewis won Oscar for his portrayal of American President Abraham Lincoln earlier this year and is well known for his method acting and immersing himself into the characters he plays.
