Michele Morrone: 9 Things You Didn't Know About The "365 Dni" Star

Michele Morrone has turned a lot of heads ever since he played the role of Massimo in 365 Dni. In this post we explore 9 things you may not have known about him.

Michele Morrone has stolen the hearts of many ever since starring in the now super-popular Netflix film '365 Dni'. Many may have their reservations regarding the film's plot and storyline but not many of us can deny that the two main characters are stunning to look at.

The 29-year-old Michele Morrone is very young in the acting business with most of his work being within the last 5 years and confined to Italy. Now with 365 Dni becoming an international hit, the Italian actor may now be at the start of a wonderful budding career. With all this newfound fame we have put together a list of some of the things that you may not know about the Massimo actor. Let's get it started with the most important thing for all you hopeful ladies out there.

He Is Single

One of the biggest questions you may have about this hunk is whether or not he is taken or single. Well, good news, he's single. However, he wasn't always so. He was first married to Lebanese fashion designer, Rouba Saadeh and had two sons, Marcud Morrone and Brado Morrone. The marriage only lasted four years and they got a divorce in 2018. On his Instagram, he mentioned that the divorce took quite a toll on him and he had severe depression after.

He said, “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.”



 

He Is A Very Talented Musician

Michele isn't only an actor. He is also a very talented musician. I would assume that acting is his prevalent money-maker but he is said to take his music just as seriously. He released his debut project entitled "Dark Room" and some of his songs were actually featured in the film "365 Dni".



 

He Was Born In The Italian Municipality Of Melegnano

Michele Morrone is an Italian if you didn't already get the memo. He was born, as mentioned above in the Italian Municipality of Melegnano. He currently still lives in Italy and is very proud of his roots.

He Has Four Siblings

Michele has three older sisters and a brother who is a photographer. Not much else is really known about his family. We do know however that his father worked as a construction worker and died when Michele was only 12-years-old.

He Almost Gave Up On Acting And Worked As A Gardener

After his divorce in 2018, Michele hit a low point in his life and nearly gave up on his acting career, even taking up gardening to pay the bills. He said: “I found work as a gardener in a remote village of 1000 inhabitants because I had no more money in my pocket.” But thank goodness that he didn't let the divorce cripple his career. Or else, who would we have gotten to play Massimo? Jamie Dornan? Nah!

He Rides Horses

Ladies, I want you to imagine Massimo on a horse. Have you imagined it? Well, it's actually not something very far from reality as Michele is an avid horse rider. He even apparently has a horse of his own.



 

He Is An Artist As Well

Michele is an actor, model singer, horse-rider, and.......an artist. Yes, the 29-year-old is also a talented painted. This dude is crazy multi-talented. You can see some of his work here.

He Almost Changed His Mind On Going For The Role Of Massimo

Michele will now forever be remembered as the hunky gangster Massimo. It definitely takes some guts to star in such an erotic role and he had to rethink the decision. He told The Western Journal:

I decided to get involved in this film, although of course I had to rethink this decision. It was an opportunity for me to go beyond Italy, start an international career. And as you can see, it paid off

He's Bilingual

As an actor, singer, model, etc, etc trying to make it on an international level it is very important to know English. Michele speaks fluent Italian but can also speak English. His songs are mostly in English
