Patrick Stewart is an intriguing man. For all his prestigious acting accomplishments and fame, it seems the X-Men actor had never, until today, eaten a slice of pizza.
The 72-year-old actor today posted a picture to his Twitter account of himself enjoying a slice of pizza. He claims that it's his first-ever slice of pizza, though the statement is unclear enough that it could just be his first-ever slice of authentic New York-style pizza:
My first ever pizza "slice". Please note: the authentic NY fold. http://t.co/X7nWRbftyh
The actor, famous for playing roles such as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, has not yet provided a follow-up tweet to review his meal, or to explain how someone could go over 70 years without trying pizza. Judging from the grease on the paper plate in front of him, however, the slice was probably fantastic.
Stewart is expected to marry his fiance Sunny Ozell sometime this year. The wedding will be officiated by Stewart's friend and X-Men co-star, Ian McKellen.
