Damian Attends MOMA Film Benefit: A Tribute to Tom Hanks
by Gingersnap – damian-lewis.com – November 15, 2016
Damian attended the 9th annual Museum of Modern Art film benefit for Tom Hanks on Tuesday, November 15, 2016. Other guests included, Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg, Anna and Graydon Carter, Clint Eastwood, David Geffen, Ron Howard, Karl Lagerfeld and Julianne Moore. The event, presented by CHANEL, honored Mr. Hanks as a steadfast screen presence of more than 30 years, from the early days of his career to his greatest accomplishments.
Both Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg were instrumental in Damian’s early career, casting him as Dick Winters in the famed HBO miniseries Band of Brothers.
All proceeds of the event benefited the Department of Film, MOMA.

Damian Lewis at The Dorchester
by Natalie Theo | Factory Magazine | Fall Issue, 2005
Damian Lewis really wants to be Widow Twanky. Thankfully Factory has asked him to camp it up as an all-dancing James Bond hero for its shoot at the Dorchester Hotel’s London ballroom. “I went through a lot of pantomime when I was young – I mostly wanted to be Widow Twanky”. Well, as I say, thank God we are more 007 today. You see I am blushingly helping Damian Lewis into a pair of elegant black Ralph Lauren trousers, shirt and diamond studded De Beers cufflinks. We are tucked away in the dark refines of the Dorchester ballroom’s coat check cubicle.
The men’s loos are unavailable for trouser tucking. Better to be tucking him into a Ralph Lauren number rather than a figure moulding pair of panto tights. Lewis has gamely agreed to swirl six dashing young actresses dripping in De Beers diamonds and slinking about in Ralph Lauren eveningwear for the day with his very own barman, sent along on orders from Dublin courtesy of Jameson Irish Whiskey, to see him through. His lead role as Major Richard Winters in HBO’s Band of Brothers, produced and part directed by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, precedes a slew of feature films due for September and early 2006 releases: Lasse Hallstrom’s An Unfinished Life; Brides produced by Martin Scorsese; Lodge Kerrigan’s Keane; Phillip Haas’ The Situation; and Martha Fiennes Chromophobia. So I can’t quite believe Widow Twanky is the be all and end all of the ultimate hero situation.
