NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Oscar winner Adrien Brody has never forgotten his Queens roots nor the pizza. The Woodhaven native returned home after winning the Best Actor award in 2002 for his role in 'The Pianist' and broke down in the middle of the street with a pizza in hand.

"I love Joe’s Pizza. I had a moment when I came back to New York and I had a slice of pizza and I was on the street and I cried. Because I realized it was something I had taken for granted my whole life that I could afford to have that at any moment. People all around the world, everywhere you look, do not have that luxury. I cried. That’s what I mean. If you have an opportunity to gain insight from portraying a character, it seeped into me to the core, it changes everything," said Brody.

In his latest role, Brody plays one of three 'parts' to a relationship:

"It’s a beautiful film. It’s three intertwining life stories and that really at the heart of it, it’s about the complexity of relationships. The crux of it is in every relationship there is a third person. Trusting and learning to trust again when there are failures," said Brody.

The film, 'Third Person,' was shot mostly in Rome but takes place in Paris and New York.

    Two years ago, Nicole Pagliaro of Staten Island dropped off her wedding gown to be cleaned and preserved at a local dry cleaner when superstorm Sandy hit. The store was destroyed and Pagliaro assumed so had been her dress.  As her wedding anniversary approached, Pagliaro and her husband drove by another dry cleaner in town and saw the gown in the store's window. “I held on to the ticket because this was my only connection to my wedding dress,” said Pagliaro.
