Sebastian Covers ‘August Man Malaysia’ April 2016

Sebastian Covers ‘August Man Malaysia’ April 2016

Here’s what the 33-year-old Captain America: Civil War star had to share with the mag:

On his biggest critic: “Myself. No one’s ever gonna beat me. I don’t care for reviews, because no one can say anything that even comes near to what I say about myself. I don’t ever relax, and I really don’t care about what people say. I will always say something worse about myself.”

On a secret about himself: “I have absolutely no patience.”

On what he would do if he wasn’t an actor: “I think I might have been a toy maker. I’m a kid at heart, and maybe some people might say that it’s immature, but the truth is, you gotta recall your childhood because it’s an important time. I guess I’ve always been fascinated by people who make toys, because they have to remain a child one way or another. I’m also interested in writing. I don’t have enough confidence to publish my own stuff yet. But with writing, you can express yourself in a different way from acting. Actually, learning to write has also made me a better reader, even with my scripts.”


Captain America: Civil War is a love story, says Joe Russo

A war movie? An action thriller? A super-powered face-off for the ages? However you’ve heard Captain America: Civil War described, you’ve probably only heard it called a love story in semi-jest. But that’s exactly how director Joe Russo termed it when Empire caught up with him on set.

“What’s fascinating about the Cap-Bucky story as well is it’s a love story,” says the co-director. Stop your sniggering at the back, he’s talking about the fraternal kind. “These are two guys who grew up together, and so they have that same emotional connection to each other as brothers would, and even more so because Bucky was all Steve had growing up.”

The picture, of course, is clouded by Cap’s guilt and Barnes’ ambiguous morality. “Is he good or is he bad?” ponders Russo. “Steve has to answer that question for himself, and there are other characters in the movie who hold the opposite point of view. It becomes a very explosive. It incites a lot of conflict.”

Bucky himself, Sebastian Stan, dials back a little on the love talk – hey, it’s not like that fan fiction needs help writing itself – instead likening the pair’s relationship to the Bad Boys movies’ Will Smith/Martin Lawrence dynamic. “I think it’s easy and generalising it to say that they’re lovers, when you’re forgetting that one has a lot of guilt because he swore to be the protector of the other, the father figure or older brother so to speak, and then left him behind.” Adds the actor: “I have no qualms with it but I think people like to see it much more as a love story than it actually is. It’s brotherhood to me.” Science Bros, eat your hearts out.

One thing that is clear is that Cap’s loyalty to his old friend, now compromised by that whole Winter Soldier thing, fuels the breakdown of another, more brittle friendship. Tony Stark is, as the movie’s most recent trailer shows, is a foe to be reckoned with.

Joe and Anthony Russo are directing this one, from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. It stars (deep breath): Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Tom Holland, William Hurt, and Daniel Brühl.

Captain America: Civil War lands in the UK on from April 29, and US cinemas from May 6.


Sebastian Talks ‘The Bronze’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War’ with Den Of Geek

Sebastian Talks ‘The Bronze’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War’ with Den Of Geek

Den of Geek: What were your first impressions of Lance when you read the script?

Sebastian Stan: Oh, man. Well, I was just laughing, really out loud, with my friend. And I just kept quoting the movie over and over again. Then I just kept thinking about the character later on, the day after, and then going to sleep at night. Usually when something sticks in my brain that prominently, I take that as a good sign. He was just this unafraid, bold, somewhat narcissistic, arrogant prick that was also just like extremely insecure and filled with a lot of emptiness. I thought the script was really just original and comedic and, at the same time, had a lot of heart. And I was a fan of (director) Bryan Buckley. So it was a pretty done deal for me at that point.

Had you worked with Melissa before?

No, I didn’t. I watched her after I met her and it I was amazed because her character in The Big Bang Theory is so different from who she is as a person. She’s also extremely different playing Hope. It just shows you how she disappears sort of in her roles. But yeah, I think she’s really, really talented.

What did you find in Lance that you could emphasize with?

Well, I think there was a moment towards the end of the film where you kind of see a little bit the cracks through this sort of heavy exterior that he puts out. That was the only moment in the movie where I felt you get to see some of the reasons as to why he is the way he is, also just kind of how his story ends up. It kind of made me feel at least like, “Oh, I think it’s OK if we really go for it.” I think this movie was not afraid to show those flaws of these characters.

You said that you felt like you were comedically challenged working on this movie, especially in terms of doing improv.

Oh, yeah. It’s still very new for me, but that was the exciting part, to want to sign up for a challenge like that, because Melissa and Thomas (Middlemitch) and Cecily (Strong), they’re all really comedic actors. They are just so witty and off the cuff. For me, I just had…because I have a European background, even though I’m very Americanized, still, in my mind, my thought process is very different. So I always wonder how that’s going to read across, because in my head it might make sense, but sometimes the way it comes out it might be different.

Fortunately, Bryan was just so encouraging for me to just kind of go out there. I think you just have to sort to jump in the water, which is why this was such a good experience for me in terms of comedy. To me, it’s a lot about taking risks and staying fearless. I think that’s a big basis of what improv is.

Did you look into the whole gymnastics culture?

I did, yeah. I looked at all the men’s Olympic teams from a few years ago, all the way to going back to ’87. I’m like, just who were the guys? Who were the people that inspire the others? Then I actually was following some of them on Instagram and social media, which was great because I got to kind of get a little bit of insight into their inside world, so to speak. And I got to see them out and about in life with their friends.

So I had this idea at one point through someone I knew that Lance always had a backpack with him that had the essentials in it or, like, what he needed. He just had this really immaculate, expensive, epic backpack that had a change of clothes in case he needed to hit the gym last minute, or a couple protein bars, a book on like…maybe Trump’s Art of the Deal could be in there. You know what I mean? So just kind of little things like that that would give me an idea of who the guy is.

What do you think the movie says about celebrity culture?

I think it says a lot. Look at Peyton Manning. I think football players deal with it a lot. But yes, our industry certainly has a fair share of it. I think the idea is that there is a dark side to success. There is definitely an underbelly underneath all the glamour and success that is quite taxing on people. I think that this movie explores a little bit of what loss of childhood is about, for example, and being rewarded to the extent that these gymnasts or athletes are rewarded so early in their lives where their psyches are still forming. Their careers kind of come to an end around 25, 27 years old. You’re not even a man really at that point.

But they learn the reward centers in their brain and so on. So it does create a monster a little bit in people, I think, at least in this movie. It sort of deals with that a little bit at the root; you know, what happens when the Olympics are over? What happens when the training is done and you go home? What happens when your body gives out and you are not able to compete like you used to? We’ve certainly seen that be a tragic sort of movie with a lot of different celebrities. So that’s all part of the film. Continue reading

Sebastian Chats with Happy Sad Confused

On the 100th episode of Happy Sad Confused, the dynamically short-haired Miles Teller returns to join Josh to talk about Han Solo rumors, The Divergent Series, and his perspective on Fantastic Four. Then, the delightful Sebastian Stan joins Josh to talk about his many nicknames, The Bronze, and becoming the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Sebastian Stan Goes for Comedy Gold in ‘The Bronze’

Millions of moviegoers will soon watch Sebastian Stan (as Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier) mix it up in the Marvel superhero-battle flick “Captain America: Civil War,” out May 7. But this Friday, he’s in a different type of battle as the cocky antagonist of the vulgar gymnastics comedy “The Bronze.”

In the movie, written by star Melissa Rauch (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Winston Rauch, Stan plays gold and silver medalist Lance Tucker opposite Rauch’s bronze-winning Hope Ann Greggory, two aging gymnasts fighting over who will coach a new prodigy, Maggie (Haley Lu Richardson).

“Both Melissa’s character and my character are adult children who never grew up,” says the 33-year-old actor. “They’re both stomping their feet and going, ‘I deserve what I deserve,’ because they didn’t really have childhoods.”

Stan talked to Speakeasy about other aspects of his role in “The Bronze,” including its buzzed-about sex scene, as well his college days, his pro-wrestling fandom, and what’s next for him – and what we can expect from Marvel Studios films starting with “Civil War.”

Stan based his “Bronze” performance on real people, some of them jerks.

The actor says he modeled much of his character’s mannerisms on someone he met, although he was worried that the person would see the movie and recognize that Stan’s arrogant bully of a character was in part based on him. “Can’t judge a book by its cover, but this individual ended up being the sweetest person in the world,” Stan says, adding that he was also inspired by jerks he went to high school and college with.

“The Bronze” sex scene was a challenge in more ways than one.

A movie featuring a sex scene involving gymnasts has to involve some, well, gymnastics. Stan said he tried to do as many flips and moves as possible while being mostly naked, with the exception of a sock covering his genitals, in front of the crew. “And you’d be surprised by what you’re capable of once you’re on the spot,” he says. “It’s almost like you rise to the challenge, no pun intended.”

Stan knows his classic wrestlers.

When asked about how “The Bronze” compares to “The Wrestler” – another, albeit much more serious movie about a washed-up athlete struggling to stay relevant – Stan lights up. “I used to love wrestling growing up,” he says. “I was into WWF, which is what we called it back then.” Mr. Perfect (aka Curt Hennig, who died in 2003 at age 44) was one of his favorites. “The Perfect-Plex was the most intense maneuver,” Stan says.

Melissa Rauch & Sebastian Stan Explain Their Insane Sex Scene in ‘The Bronze’

Melissa Rauch & Sebastian Stan Explain Their Insane Sex Scene in ‘The Bronze’

Can we all agree that the ideal husband is one who encourages you to hook up with Sebastian Stan, and even helps script scenarios that will allow you to do so? If so, then Melissa Rauch may be the world’s luckiest woman: In this weekend’s new comedy The Bronze, which she co-wrote with her husband Winston, Rauch plays a foul-mouthed former gymnast who gets it on with Stan’s Olympic coach in what is surely the young year’s wildest sex scene. Both characters bring all their athletic prowess to bear on each other, cartwheel-flipping and vaulting into each other’s naughty portions in the most R-rated floor exercise ever conceived. And with each gymnastic thrust, Rauch could count on both Stan and her husband to egg her on.

“Oh, Winston was so game throughout,” Rauch told Vulture recently in Los Angeles. “Anything for the sake of the movie! He would even be like, ‘I think we should do another take of that.’”

“And that was like the second or third day on set for me,” laughed Stan. “I remember thinking, ‘I’m really gonna get to know these people better.’”

So will the audience: While Stan is most famous for playing Bucky Barnes in the Captain America movies and Rauch has a steady job as Bernadette on The Big Bang Theory, The Bronze offers both actors a new way to cut loose, exemplified by the sort of graphic, over-the-top encounter you’d never see in their more family-friendly franchises. “We wrote it as ‘the most crazy epic gymnastic sex scene ever,’ said Rauch. “It really was a porno script, essentially. But Sebastian was so fantastic and he went for so much of it. He could have just said, ‘Have my body double do it,’ and instead he came to set in his robe and said, ‘Okay, let’s do this.’”

Rauch did, too, but for some of the more graphic moments, she selected as her body double a Cirque du Soleil dancer who had no hang-ups about the scene’s wild stunts (or nudity). “Every time I slammed into her,” Stan said, “I was like, ‘Oh my God, are you okay?’ And she was like, ‘Just go for it.’”

“I remember staring at her like a creepy old dude,” laughed Rauch, “wishing that she could body-double for me in every moment of life. At one point, I was like, ‘Do you want a robe?’ and she said, ‘I’m good, you’re gonna see everything anyway.’ And she was literally sitting there legs open, eating a sandwich.” Continue reading

Sebastian Stan Says Watching ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Left Him Speechless

Sebastian Stan Talks Sex Scene In ‘The Bronze’ That Is So NSFW: “Outrageous, Dangerous, And Over The Top”

Sebastian Stan Talks Sex Scene In ‘The Bronze’ That Is So NSFW: “Outrageous, Dangerous, And Over The Top”

There are some cinematic moments that have stayed in my memory years after seeing them. Like when Bueller breaks the fourth wall for the first time in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Or when Inigo Montoya gets stabbed but still defeats the six-fingered man in The Princess Bride. And of course when Rose let’s go of Jack at the end of Titanic (after he repeatedly tells her to “never let go”). And after seeing 2016’s The Bronze, I can guarantee that the gratuitous gymnast sex scene, featuring Melissa Rauch and Sebastian Stan, will stay in my conscious for many moons to come.

The Bronze follows Hope, a gymnast from a small town who won a bronze medal at the Olympics years ago. As she tries to hold on to her glory days, she’s forced to train an up-and-coming gymnast for her own Olympic Games. Rauch, who co-wrote the film with her husband, stars as Hope, and Stan plays an Olympic coach and Hope’s former lover. In an unforgettable scene, the pair rekindle their romance in an extremely graphic and oh-so impressive sex scene.

“In the script it was literally described as the most epic, insane, outrageous, fascinating, dangerous, over the top gymnastics sex scene there ever was in the world,” says Stan. “That was the tag line.”

The scene goes something like this: The pair barge into a hotel room, rip one another’s clothing off, throw each other all over the room, and perform a bevy of impressive gymnastic stunts — while naked — and while having sex. It’s something you can’t tear your eyes away from. And something that will surely leave your mouth agape.

“I just wanted to see what we could get away with,” Stan says. “We figured out the routine on the day of. We had two Cirque Du Soleil people, we had an Olympic winner gymnast choreographer, and we were all standing there at 8 am with coffees in bathrobes, going: ‘Can you flip this way? What if we do this? What if we do that?'”

The not-to-be-missed scene also reveals his character’s Olympic-inspired (and very phallic) tattoo. “That was on there for at least a week afterwards. I was in the gym in the steamroom and was like, ‘Ugh, I’m that guy now,'” Stan recalls.

Stan’s co-star, Thomas Middleditch, who plays Hope’s other love interest, was impressed with Stan’s willingness to commit to the tricky scene: “He really went for it. Another actor would be too timid or be too crass about it, but he manages to hit that sweet spot. As a result the scene is legendary,” Middleditch says. “It’s remarkable. The only time you’ve seen anything close to it is in Team America — and that’s with dolls. These are real people doing the craziest and weirdest shit. It’s not in a porno — it’s in a comedy — and somehow it works.”

“I never get sick of that scene. I wish we were shooting it today,” Stan jokes.

See the scene in question — and Stan’s outrageous tattoo — when The Bronze hits theaters March 18.
