Not to be outdone by Christopher Meloni, Sebastian Stan showed off his melonis, but this time it's a Full Monty shot he posted on Instagram.

And did so with a teasing message that explained where you could see more. "MONDAY, the movie. Out this Friday, April 16. When I say we gave it our 'all', we literally did. Check out how to watch at the link in my bio."

The pic has Stan standing in the middle of a rain-soaked city street at night shot from the rear. He wears an open parka with his arms extended causing the jacket to rise high enough to show his buns.

His new film "Monday," directed by Argyris Papadimitropoulos, was shot before the pandemic and is out on April 16 on IFC. The film "follows the story of Mickey (Sebastian Stan) and Chloe (Denis Gough), two Americans in their mid-thirties living in Athens, who meet in the heat of summer one whirlwind weekend," reads the film's website synopsis. "When Chloe's time in Greece is drawing to a close, she decides to give up her high-flying job back home and explore whether one weekend's passion can stand the reality of the inevitable Monday."

"It's refreshingly raw and honest, standing in juxtaposition to the glossier world of Stan's Marvel series," is the way the Observer described the film in an interview with the actor.

Stan said he was a fan of the " 'Before Sunrise' trilogy" and was attracted to this film "because it felt very authentic. Like an authentic experience. A journey with a director and a co-star that asked to be a very collaborative process of truth. And the director had another movie before that I'd seen that I really loved called Suntan, which was extremely honest and beautiful."

Asked about being naked in the film, Stan said: "I didn't even care [about being naked]. The thing about the naked stuff is, right, sometimes you hear about movies having sex scenes or nudity or whatever and maybe that's all people talk about. And for some reason if anybody does highlight only this once this movie comes out then that's a shame because that's just clickbait, which is what everybody is too lazy to admit they like to rely on nowadays. Like, 'What's going to get someone to read the article? Oh my God! It's like, 'Give me a fucking break. Say an ounce of truth for once, you know?' But whatever. And I guess we were trying to say some truth with this movie.

"What I'm saying is that nothing about it felt salacious or not earned. We always discussed [those scenes] and saw them from a place of 'Yeah, in that situation that's what would happen. They would be like that or they would be naked. They would end up in that way.' Argyris never shot those scenes in a way that [made us uncomfortable]. The nudity and the sex scenes were there to help bring depth to the film or help do some heavy lifting that was not being done by the performances or the story."
