Actor Michele Morrone has issued a strongly-worded statement after his full-frontal nude photos from the sets of the ‘365 Days’ sequel leaked online.
“As an actor your life becomes public. But, as a human being, I would still like my privacy to myself, and I’m a huge fan of privacy,” he said in a post shared on his Instagram stories.
Addressing the photos that turned up online while he was shooting a scene that required him to be naked in the shower, he said, “It is never ok to invade someone’s privacy and it’s very disrespectful.”
“What happened is a big offence to me,” he added.
In his post, he also went on to thank his fans, friends and members of his team who helped take down the photos from online portals.
“I really wanna thank all of my online family for taking action against all the private images of me that leaked while I was working on set professionally.”
“I really appreciate what you’ve all done guys… as always, Thank you… I love you!!” he concluded.
The paparazzi photos that were shared online, left nothing to the imagination. Photos of the actor in various stages of undressing turned up online, some that even featured his manhood.
Morrone plays the leading role of gangster Massimo Torricelli in the erotica film, ‘365 Days’. The sequel will see him reuniting with co-star Anna-Maria as Laura Biel. Despite the controversy, the phenomenal success of the film prompted makers to announce that a trilogy is in the works
