In what is being called one of the finest works of erotism, Netflix's Polish film '365 Dni' has swept viewers off their feet by showing them newfangled sexual preferences and fetishism. The internet is abuzz about the film since its release. While the movie continues to enjoy an overwhelming response from audiences, lead actor Michele Morrone, who plays kinky "daddy" Don Massimo Torricelli, has clearly found a place for himself in the hearts of fans, who have declared him to be the new "symbol of sex" in the entertainment world.

In '365 Dni', he essays the role of mafia boss Massimo Torricelli who kidnaps a sales executive on her way to Italy. He holds her hostage for a year until she falls in love with him and tries to impress her in ways unimaginable. However, there is so much more to this actor than meets the eye as his skills stretch beyond acting and being someone's daddy. The 29-year-old Italian actor is also a singer and model. Before '365 Dni', he worked in 'El Juicio' and 'Sirene'.

Morrone's advent into commercial music is relatively new. He released his debut album 'Dark Room' on February 14. Two of the songs from the album, 'Feel It' and 'Drink Me', garnered quite the attention, clocking over 16 million views collectively on YouTube. He may have impressed you as the highly desirable mafia boss in the film, but in real life, Morrone has had the experience of being a family man.

He was previously married to ex-wife Raouba Saadeh, with who he shares two children. The couple dated for a year before getting married in 2014. In their marriage of four years, Morrone and Saadeh had two sons — Marcudo and Brado Morrone. They decided to file for divorce in 2018 and Morrone went through a rough patch following his separation. Only a month ago, he shared a post on Instagram about his struggles with depression.

He wrote, "A year and a half ago I was about to leave everything, I didn't want to act anymore. I was in a severe state of depression after divorcing my wife. I found work as a gardener in a remote village of 1000 inhabitants because I had no more money in my pocket." He added, "But life is strange. When you're down destiny puts the right train in front of you and if you're strong you can take it. Always believe in yourself... ALWAYS."

He often shares intimate pictures and details about his personal life with the 3.1 million fans on Instagram. Perhaps '365 Dni' has turned fortune around on Morrone and it seems like there is no looking back for the actor who has clearly managed to steal the hearts of his audiences.
