Patrick Stewart tweeted yesterday that he had his first pizza slice ever with his fiancee. While he has clarified that he has, indeed, tasted pizza before, his first ever slice of it happened yesterday.
"People misunderstood. There was a school of thought that I had eaten my first pizza, but of course how could that possibly be true? I would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar," he said.
"But nevertheless, this was my first slice of pizza, which I was only eating because my fiancee and I were a little hungover yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink - and she was right. It solved the problem."
"In fact, it was my first slice, and when it was brought over to me, my first comment was, 'there's no knife and fork.'"
"I know that will sound bizarre to you, but I grew up in a small community in northern England."
