Patrick Stewart eats pizza, apparently for the first time ever

Posted on

Forget outer space. For Sir Patrick Stewart, a New York pizza shop is the final frontier.

The Star Trek and X-Men actor tweeted on Wednesday that at age 72, he has eaten his first slice of pizza. Check out the tweet and photographic evidence below:

Eating pizza New York-style may be just one item on the British actor’s Big Apple bucket list. Since buying a home in Brooklyn last summer, Stewart has lined up Broadway roles opposite his buddy Ian McKellen, rescued a baby bird, complained along with the masses about Barclays Center, and inspired a Tumblr that’s out to prove Stewart is just like any other New Yorker.
