Press/Video: The Wild, Wonderful Absurdity of Sebastian Stan’s ‘Cheat Day’

MensHealth.com –  Find someone who looks at you the same way Sebastian Stan looks at a box of donuts.

Sebastian Stan is just like you and me, aside from the fact that he’s a chiseled, obscenely handsome action star who played one of the most beloved characters in one of the most successful movie franchises of all time and will play that same beloved character in one of the most ambitious upcoming original series on the most successful new streaming service. But other than that, he’s just like you and me.

And after a long day of work (in this case, a topless photoshoot), Stan likes to unwind like the rest of us normies: with a hearty helping of junk food. In this short film titled Cheat Day, which was conceived by the Men’s Health January/February cover star himself, Stan paces New York City blocks seeking pizza, donuts, dumplings and more. He finishes his quest with a Frankenstein’s monster of sugar, carbs, and who-knows-what combined to produce the most over-the-top cheat day meal you’ve ever seen in your life. Stan also displays his encyclopedic knowledge of the Big Apple’s geography (he grew up an hour north in Rockland County, NY, and once starred on Broadway in William Inge’s Picnic), confirming “there is no 4th and Lex.”

If you only know Stan from the MCU, you might not fully grasp his penchant for absurd humor. But if you truly stan Stan, then you’re familiar with @OneMinuteMen, which features experimental short films starring Stan and his friend Will Malnati. Much like the donut-filled, pizza and potato chips taco monstrosity feasted upon in Cheat Day, Sebastian Stan has layers.
