When Sir Patrick Stewart found himself "a little hungover" Wednesday morning, he turned to a proven soak up the alcohol meal: a slice of pizza.

But the moment was something of a milestone for the 72 year old actor, who was indulging in his first ever slice of pizza.

He took part in the grand tradition of a slice post-drinks in New York and, even as a first-timer, exhibited the proper local folding technique.

Not that the actor doesn't know his way around a pizza he has had the stuff before.

"To clarify," he tweeted Wednesday evening, "1) I've never had a 'slice' 2) I've been a Habs fan all of 4 weeks 3) I'm also a fan of Mayor Bloomberg's soda legislation."

As Stewart later explained to New York Magazine's Daily Intelligencer:

"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. But nevertheless, this was my first slice of pizza, which I was only eating because my fiancée and I were a little hung-over yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink  and she was right. It solved the problem."
