Is actor Sir Patrick Stewart circumcised?

No, but he spent a lot of his adult life thinking he was. His mother had told him he was circumcised, but it wasn't until he was married that he discovered he wasn't. He said on BBC One's Graham Norton show:

“One night with my wife, as you do, we were talking about stuff and I mentioned my circumcision and she said, ‘You’re not circumcised.’ I said, ‘What do you mean? That’s ridiculous, I should know. All my life my mother has told me it was fashionable at the time.’... I happened to be seeing my doctor the next day for a check-up so while he was ‘down there’ I said, ‘By the way, my wife and I have had a little disagreement, I am circumcised aren’t I?’ He took a closer look and said, ‘Not! I am Jewish and definitely know the difference!’”
