In the video, Morrone, while touching upon the topic, can be heard saying that, "This morning, I woke up with my team calling me and saying, ‘Hey, there’s a lot of articles…saying that you came out,’ because of the picture I took with Simone.” He continued, “He became a very good friend of mine, we’re like brothers. We’re shooting a movie together. Guys, it was just a picture. Nothing more.” “And by the way…I’m a very big supporter of the LGBT community. But we’re just talking about a normal picture. I didn’t come out,”. Additionally, while addressing the caption of the photo, which read, "I'm a liar", he can be heard saying that, "An actor is a kind of liar. That’s why I wrote that. Acting…someone who is not. I didn’t come out,”. While concluding the statement, the actor, musician and the 365 days cast member said that “So, I’m so sorry for the confusion. As I said, I’m a big supporter of the LGBT community. There’s a lot of young guys and young girls…they would love to come out but they don’t do it because of their families. You know, happiness is priceless, guys.”. The pool selfie that sparked the aforementioned rumours can be found below.
