Tommy Lee and Sebastian Stan appeared friendlier than ever while dining out together on Thursday night at Taverna Tony in Malibu following the actor’s portrayal  of the legendary rocker in a recent Hulu series.

Lee, 59, was spotted giving the 39-year-old Pam & Tommy star a big bear hug outside of the restaurant after the two shared a quiet dinner together.

While the Motley Crue drummer has been supportive of the racy biopic which follows his tumultuous relationship with ex Pamela Anderson and their stolen sex tape, the Baywatch star has been critical of the project.

Heading out of the eatery, Tommy Lee still looked every bit the rockstar in tight ripped jeans, a white hoodie and slipper slides from Justin Bieber’s Drew line. 

Lee sported a five o’clock shadow and a mess of dark hair while his on-screen alter-ego, Sebastian Stan, looked far more proper.

The Marvel actor rocked light washed jeans, a white T-shirt and a pastel cardigan with a pink and green diamond pattern.

Stan and Lee have been acquaintances since Sebastian was first cast to play the iconic drummer in a Hulu series about his marriage to Pam Anderson.

Sebastian previously told Variety that Tommy Lee ‘seemed touched and appreciative that I took the time to even reach out and connect.’ 

In the series, Stan transforms into the spitting image of the rocker complete with smudged eyeliner, nipple piercings and a chest full of tattoos.

To prepare for the role, the actor previously revealed that he took drum lessons, watched hours of videos, chatted with Lee personally and read his controversial 2005 memoir.   

The book included a particularly bizarre scene where Tommy describes chatting with his penis before having sex with Pam for the first time and producers had a difficult time making it work for on-screen.

Several puppeteers were hired for the racy scene in Pam & Tommy with actor Jason Mantzoukas voicing Lee’s animatronic genitals, Variety reported.

‘By the end of it, I treated it like it was an intimate buddy conversation that one might have when they’re falling in love,’ Stan told the outlet about how he approached the scene.

In Tommyland, Tommy Lee’s memoir, he describes having a full conversation with his private parts about falling for Baywatch bombshell Pamela Anderson. 

Starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the titular characters in Pam & Tommy, the show follows the story of the leak of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape in 1995.

Several other Hollywood heavy hitters co-star in the eight-episode series like Seth Rogen, who plays Rand Gauthier, the porn actor-turned-electrician who stole Pamela and Tommy’s sex tape, Nick Offerman, who plays Rand’s associate, Uncle Miltie, and Taylor Schilling, who plays Rand’s porn star wife Erica.

The sex tape was stolen by Rand after Tommy refused to pay for work that he had performed on their house.

When Gauthier confronted the musician about not being paid the $20,000 he was owed, Tommy pulled out a gun to scare him away.

Gauthier took his revenge by stealing the giant safe that had been kept in the couple’s garage, which mainly housed the drummer’s guns and Pamela’s jewelry, in addition to the sex tape.

'After the tape was made public, it was a very traumatizing situation and it's unfair that she is being re-subjected to this trauma, like re-opening a wound,' a source close to Pam told People this week

Pamela, 54, and Tommy, 59, tied the knot on a beach in Mexico in 1995 after dating for just four days. At the time, her mother hadn’t met Tommy. They went on to have sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 22, and divorced in 1998. 

Anderson, meanwhile, was not supportive of her vulnerable past being splashed onto the small screen in the show.  

‘After the tape was made public, it was a very traumatizing situation and it’s unfair that she is being re-subjected to this trauma, like re-opening a wound,’ a source close to Pam told People this week. 

They continued: ‘She’s a human being and a mom. There’s a sense of hypocrisy about it. It’s her life and she should have the decision [as to] whether it’s turned into a commodity for public consumption.’

Pamela had willingly posed topless for Playboy back in 1992, before going on to add more covers to her impressive roster, but having her body exposed without her consent was deeply upsetting to the star.

‘If you go back to her Playboy [cover], she always had the perspective that that was her conscious choice.

‘But somebody taking her personal home movie, that was not her choice. When someone steals your home movie, that is criminal and that’s a violation. That was her privacy,’ they explained. 

Earlier this year, Pam claimed that the video wasn’t actually a sex tape, but was merely a compilation of footage of them naked on vacation, which just happened to include sex acts.

Anderson has not spoken publicly about the series but it has been widely reported that she disagrees with her ex and doesn’t support the story being dramatized and retold.

Meanwhile, Anderson is in the midst of a professional comeback and made her Broadway debut this week as Roxie Hart in Chicago.

The blonde beauty was cheered on by her sons, Brandon Thomas Lee and Dylan Jagger Lee, whom she shared with ex Tommy, on opening night. 

The actress posed backstage with Brandon, 25, and Dylan, 24, who were dressed to impress for their mother’s big performance. 

Dylan took to Instagram to congratulate his mother on her opening night. He wrote on his IG Stories: ‘Mother killed it.’

Meanwhile, the ex-glamour model’s oldest son Brandon shared a snap of his world-famous mother as she posed for photos with fans at stage door and signed autographs.
