365 DNI hunk Michele Morrone bags six-figure modelling deal as raunchy Netflix sex scenes amass huge fanbase
STARRING in one of the raunchiest movies of all time has really paid off for 365 DNI's leading man, Michele Morrone.
The Italian actor, 29, has just signed a six-figure modelling deal off the back of the success of Netflix's sexy, but controversial film.
The film is a Polish erotic romantic drama based on Blanka Lipinska’s novel of the same name and features a number of steamy sex scenes between the two lead characters, Massimo and Laura.
Morrone who plays Massimo has signed the lucrative deal with designer Paul Marciano, according to TMZ.
The decision to take the deal was an easy one for the actor who flew to Switzerland to meet with the designer.
He decided the same day they met, that he would sign with Marciano, whose wife also pushed for the deal after becoming a fan of Morrone's from his work in 365 DNI.
They'll complete his first shoot next week on the idyllic Lake Como in Italy, but Morrone will also do social media and fashion shows for the designer.
The actor's fortunes have certainly changed in the past month since the film dropped on Netflix.
According to Morrone he used to make about £470 per month as a gardener.
But his success has not come without its fair share of critics.
A petition to have the kinky film removed from Netflix got more than 70,000 signatures.
The Change.org petition has blasted it for “glorifying Stockholm Syndrome and abuse” and said its availability on Netflix was a “mockery” for victims and survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
It reads: "For those who have watched it, we know he talks about child trafficking, sedates her, imprisons her, sexually assaults her and has sexual relations with her without consent.
"The main character also uses abuse tactics such as gas lighting, coercion, reproductive coercion and Stockholm Syndrome to financially, physically, sexually, emotionally and digitally abuse the woman he had taken.”
It also states the streaming giant should have included a disclaimer about the sexual violence within the film, and wants it removed permanently.
The petition added: "By taking down this movie on Netflix, we can protect sexual violence in adolescent women and adult women.”
Welsh singer Duffy who has opened up about her ordeal of being kidnapped and raped also called for its removal.
She wrote in an open letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings: "365 Days glamorizes the brutal reality of sex trafficking, kidnapping and rape. This should not be anyone's idea of entertainment, nor should it be described as such, or be commercialized in this manner."
The Polish film has propelled Michele into the limelight
In the film, Laura is a successful sales director at a luxury hotel in Poland, meanwhile young and handsome Massimo Torricelli becomes a leader of the Sicilian mafia following his father's assassination.
Trying to save her failing relationship, Laura plans a birthday trip to Sicily, but all does not go to plan when she is kidnapped by Massimo and kept captive in his villa.
Massimo then vows to make Laura fall in love with him within 365 days and offers to set her free if she doesn't.
While trying to do so, the pair engage in a number of steamy romps in a multitude of locations including a boat.
