I’ve added high quality photos of Sebastian from his cover shoot for the January/February 2020 issue of Men’s Health Magazine into the gallery. In addition to high quality screen captures from behind the scenes of his photoshoot AND the “Cheat Day” Short Film which you can find here in case you missed it!
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.
MensHealth.com – Toss your old, ratty basketball shorts for this stylish upgrade.
As you prepare to take your fitness game to the next level in the New Year, rest and recovery are key to crushing your goals. And when you’re training hard, you’ll want to be as comfortable as possible before and after the gym. Sebastian Stan — Men’s Health January/February cover star — knows that all too well, donning a casual-cool look of black shorts, a black T-shirt, mid-calf black socks, and a gray hoodie to his recent interview for the magazine.
“I mean, next to Evans and Hemsworth and all those guys, I feel like I’m 50 miles behind,” says Stan during his in-depth interview with Men’s Health. “I don’t think I can get to that size, to be honest. My body right now is probably the best its ever been.”
Its not easy achieving superhero abs like the modest Avengers: Endgame star, but if you plan to crush some brutal workouts, its worth investing in stylish-yet-comfortable athletic shorts that’ll help you achieve the ultimate relaxation pre – and post-gym. For the most wear, opt for a pair that looks cool enough to sport around town and feel seriously cozy for lounging around your home, like these Armani Exchange shorts worn by Stan in his Men’s Health cover shoot.
So, why are these shorts so special? It’s all about the luxe, velvety-soft fabric that makes them look way more expensive than any ratty basketball shorts in your closet. The rich texture elevates your wardrobe of basic tees and hoodies, while providing a nice contrast to your fresh white sneakers.
With minimalist design details like contrasting side piping, these sleek Armani Exchange shorts are perfect for understated, cool style– something that’s hard to achieve. Sure, these Bermuda shorts might be 80’s-inspired but they’re far from the wildly-bold fashions of the decade that might come to mind.
If you’re willing to invest in wardrobe essentials like the best pair of jeans and sneakers, spending $100 on cool and comfy shorts that can be worn anywhere seems reasonable (if not a total steal). While this purchase doesn’t guarantee an action hero physique, it will help you achieve effortlessly cool action-hero-off duty style.

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.
