Oscars favourite Daniel Day-Lewis is adamant money is never a factor when he is picking movie roles.

The British-Irish actor has already won numerous prizes for his star turn in Steven Spielberg's historical drama Lincoln, and is among the front-runners for the coveted Best Actor Oscar at the upcoming Academy Awards.

Day-Lewis has now revealed he doesn't let big pay cheques sway his decision when he is choosing his projects, and insists money is never an important factor for him when he is considering jobs.

He says, "I've been offered a lot of things over the years. But the sad truth is that I can't really be tempted by money. Money just doesn't do it for me.

"I'm sure I could be tempted by other things and corrupted in other ways but not by cold hard cash. In fact nothing does it for me that's going to steer me away from what I feel the need to do in my work.

"It's always been a very strong impulse and long ago I made a bargain with myself that I'd always follow my heart and that impulse."
