The sequel to "365 Days" premiered on Netflix in April, and fans cannot get over the handsome man who stars as Massimo Torricelli.
Michele Morrone stars as the mafia boss, Torricelli, in the movie, showing the talent he has in acting. However, fans were surprised to know he is also a talented singer.

WHO IS MICHELE MORRONE?
Morrone became an overnight sensation after his first major film, "365 Days," premiered on Netflix. Before the release, Morrone was a low-key actor and model for different brands, including Dolce & Gabbana and Guess. He said:
“It was a major turning point in my life. Before the movie came out, I had 4,000 followers on Instagram, and the night after the movie was released on the platform, I woke up and had 2.6 million followers.”

The Italian heartthrob knew he wanted to pursue an acting career at a young age. Detailing his experience in an interview, Morrone said that he was around ten years old when he felt the passion kick in. However, it wasn't until he watched his first "Harry Potter" film that he wanted to star in a movie.
At a young age, he would go to small theaters in his hometown but could not afford to take classes. Instead, he watched several movies and fixated his eyes on one character.
It wasn't until after college that he had his first professional acting experience in a beer commercial. Soon, he landed minor roles in local Italian television shows. "I wanted to become a working actor, but I didn't want to just stay in Italy. I had to learn English by myself because I really wanted to work in the States," he said.
WHO IS MICHELE MORRONE'S WIFE?
Morrone was previously married to fashion designer Rouba Saadeh, founder of Le Paradis Des Fous. She met Morrone in 2013 through mutual friends and got married a year later.
The couple welcomed two sons but, unfortunately, separated after four years together. Their reason for divorce was kept private, although they continued to co-parent their kids amicably.
IS MICHELE MORRONE DATING ANYONE?
Morrone hasn't been in a relationship known to the public since, leaving the actor single. Due to their intense chemistry on-screen, he has been linked to his "365 Days" co-star, Anna-Maria Sieklucka. However, Morrone confirmed that they were not a couple. He said, as reported by Suggest:
“[Our characters] were really deep, so if we didn't like each other and had that bond on set, it wasn't going to be real-the scenes. We were forced to be friends, but we became friends for real.”
In June 2021, rumors about Morrone's sexuality surfaced on the internet, with some speculating that he was gay. However, the actor cleared the air and said that although he supports the LGBTQ+ community, he is not gay.

Whether he is or isn't, the LGBTQ+ community has been more accepted in society in the past years. There have even been shows focused on such characters, including Netflix's "Heartstopper," starring Kit Connor and Joe Locke.
