Ever since the released of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier“, the popularity of Sebastian Stan has been steadily growing, with him quickly establishing himself as one of Hollywood A-listers and a household name.
Having been on several landmark productions, it’s hard to imagine that Mr. Winter Soldier himself would ever feel “insecure”. However, that was exactly what he felt whenever he stood next to his fellow muscular Marvel co-stars like Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth.

After 7 years with @donsaladino I caught a good day, sucked it up and finally posted this… Been working with this guy through years of self judgement and mental wars when it comes to fitness and LIFE, and TODAY I’m giving myself a break and acknowledging the hard work we’ve done for @355movie (and this other small thing we got comin’ 😉) ! Proud of what we’ve accomplished pal! Love you. And thank you. 👊🏻❤️ #donsaladino #drive495 #355movie #marvel #TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier
In speaking to Men’s Health, the 37 year-old let loose on his insecurities during the early days on set and how it motivated him to go do more training. “I was so insecure being around these massive f**king 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. I was losing circulation,” he recalled.
When the conversation turned to his fellow colleagues Sebastian Stan commented, “I mean, next to Evans and Hemsworth and all those guys, I feel like I’m 50 miles behind. I don’t think I can get to that size, to be honest. My body right now is probably the best it’s ever been.”
