Actor Patrick Stewart somehow managed to go the first 72 years of life without ever tasting pizza.

At least that's what he said, tweeting a photo of himself with his first slice at an authentic New York pizza shop, complete with authentic New York pizza fold.

Stewart, famous for his roles as Professor X in X-Men films and as Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek, is originally from England but has called Brooklyn home since last year.
