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.
MensHealth.com – To keep up with the Chrises, Stan upgraded his diet, training, and worldview. And 2020 is shaping up to be his best year ever.
THE COFFEE-SHOP staff is having a silent meltdown. The peppermint tea I ordered was forgotten as soon as Sebastian Stan walked in. He orders a coffee, receives it instantly, and goes to put it down on a table. The lid isn’t fully on, and the coffee spills. It’s almost a “stars are just like us” moment, but then a barista suddenly materializes with a paper towel in his outstretched palm. “It’s wet,” he says eagerly.
Stan, 37, is wearing black shorts, a black T-shirt, midcalf black socks, and a gray hoodie missing its drawstring. He looks very off-duty SoHo, which he is: He’s back home in New York City on furlough from preparations for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, an extravagant collaboration between Marvel and newborn streaming service Disney+.
He’s also wearing a blue baseball cap, which sits slightly higher on his head than it might on the head of someone with less va-va-voom hair. That hair sent the Internet into a tizzy recently, when a poster for Falcon showed Stan with a short cut. In the past when Stan has played the Winter Soldier (né Bucky Barnes), he’s had shoulder-length hair. Next to his forehead, which is giant—the White Cliffs of Dover of foreheads—the longer style made him look very sinister.
Stan is somewhat less recognizable in street clothes, but women still side-eye him on their way to the bathroom. Maybe they recognize him; maybe he’s just a little too strapping not to be famous.
As Stan talks, he maintains an unsettling deadpan, verging on a glower. “People always ask me if I’m okay,” he says, still glowering. “They’ve said I have ‘serial-killer resting face.’ No matter what I do, I’ve always had dark circles under my eyes that never really go away. Lately there might be a little moisturizer happening here and there, just in case. Preserving a couple years, or whatever.”
The more reserved the actor, the more likely he is to become part of Hollywood mythology. Between Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Captain America: Civil War (2016), a rumor circulated that he had gotten too ripped for the arm he’d worn in the earlier film, a wraparound contraption meant to look like a machine prosthetic. Redditors called him “the Winter Swoldier” and “Bulky Barnes.”
Stan laughs when I bring it up and clarifies that he used a new-and-improved arm in each successive film. With the first iteration, he had to apply lube to slide his real arm into what was essentially two rigid metal tubes. “It was like having a massive hammer attached to me,” he says, “but it looked unbelievable in the movie, and it actually informed a lot of my body language.”
Subsequent arms were more mobile, and Stan doesn’t have to lube up to get in there anymore: There’s a sleeve inside the arm for his next appearance as the Winter Soldier. But, he concedes, he did get too big for the arm used in Civil War. “I was so insecure being around these massive fucking guys, so I started lifting really heavy and ate a lot. I remember I showed up, and I was a little bit bigger than I had been in The Winter Soldier. The arm was a bit tight,” he says. “I was losing circulation.”
Stan is not a new arrival in the Marvel universe: He made his superhero debut in 2011, with Captain America: The First Avenger. But recently he’s enjoyed a burgeoning late-term fandom as his roles (and arms) have ballooned. Beyond Marvel, he starred alongside Margot Robbie in 2017’s I, Tonya, as Tonya Harding’s jackass boyfriend. When we meet in October, he’s just returned from shooting the spy film 355 in London, with Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o, and Diane Kruger. Another insecurity-inspiring roster.
For the past two years we’ve been waiting for small details about Sebastian’s upcoming film The Last Full Measure that was filmed in 2017 and where portrays the role of Scott Huffman. The film was written and directed by Todd Robinson and also stars Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Ed Harris, Samuel L. Jackson.
There was a lot of silence on the “when will it release” front for the better half of a year now but it seems everything has been figured out. We now have an official trailer, production stills and a release date which you will find in this post.
If you don’t know what the film is about, don’t worry! Here is the official synopsis below:
The true story of Vietnam War hero William H. Pitsenbarger, a USAF Pararescue medic who saved over sixty men in the U.S. Army’s 1st Infantry Division before making the ultimate sacrifice in one of the bloodiest battles of the war. Thirty-two years later, Pentagon staffer Scott Huffman investigates a decades-long Congressional Medal of Honor request for Pitsenbarger and uncovers a high-level conspiracy prompting him to put his career on the line to seek justice for the fallen airman.
On September 9th, Sebastian made his long awaited appearance on the red carpet of one of his latest films, Endings, Beginnings alongside his co-stars Shailene Woodley and Jamie Dornan at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.
While in attendance Sebastian greeted fans with warm smiles, posed for photos for both fans and the press in addition to discussing the film in some new interviews. You will find all over 50+ high quality photos from the event and their gallery links displayed below, along with a YouTube Playlist of all the interviews from the event posted so far.
EW.com — The cast of forthcoming Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are shielding plot details pretty fiercely — but when they sat down in EW and PEOPLE’s video studio backstage at Disney’s D23 Expo, they did tease a few hints.
This past weekend Sebastian stopped by the 2019 D23 Expo to promote his upcoming show The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney’s new streaming platform Disney+ which debuts this November.
