Hollywood celebrity spotted at a Budapest restaurant!
Academy award winner American celebrity actor, Adrien Brody celebrated his 50th birthday in the Hungarian capital.
Brody and his family paid a visit to Rosenstein Vendéglő for the special occasion, where he posed for a photo which was later uploaded to the restaurant’s official Facebook page, Telex reports.
Adrian Nicholas Brody was born in the United States of America on 14 April 1973 in New York City. His father is of Polish Jewish descent, while his mother, Sylvia Plachy was born in Budapest. Sylvia’s father was a Hungarian aristocrat, which makes Brody ¼ Hungarian.
The actor first came to prominence in 2002, when he starred in the role of Władysław Szpilman in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist. For his performance, Brody was nominated for the Oscar Award for Best Actor, which he won. This makes him the youngest ever to obtain an academy award in the category. Throughout his career, he made appearances in several other successful movies and series as well, such as The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) or the third season of Peaky Blinders (2017).
Brody is currently in the capital for the shooting of his latest production, The Brutalist. The movie tells the story of a Hungarian-born Jewish architect László Tóth, who moves to the USA with his wife to flee Europe, torn apart by WWII. The cast includes numerous other well-known celebrity actors, such as Felicity Jones, Guy Pearce, or Joe Alwyn. The movie is an international co-production between the US, the UK and Hungary. Filming began on 16 March, but the release date is unknown for now.
Adrian Brody is not the first international celebrity actor who popped up at Rosenstein Vendéglő. In late July 2022, the star of Dune (2021), Timothée Chalamet also paid a visit to the establishment. So did fellow cast member, Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård, well known for appearing in hits such as Good Will Hunting (1997), Mamma Mia! (2008), or Pirates of the Caribbean (2006-2007). Other world-class actors such as Willem Dafoe or Mark Ruffalo have also previously made an appearance at the diner.
The Hungarian-Jewish Rosenstein Restaurant was founded by Holocaust survivor Tibor Rosenstein in 1996. Tibor, born in 1943, still works in the kitchen of the facility on a daily basis. However, he leaves the running of the restaurant now to his son, Róbert Rosenstein, seen in the picture with Brody. If you are interested in trying out the cuisine Rosenstein offers, make sure to pay them a visit at Budapest, Mosonyi Street 3, 1087, or visit their official website.
