"I don't think I'm beautiful enough to be a sex symbol," Lorenzo told ET's Brooke Anderson. "I think I have a good face for the screen, but I'm not like Leonardo DiCaprio or Brad Pitt. They're super beautiful. I'm more of a rough beauty."
Lorenzo's fans may beg to differ once they get a load of his shirtless scenes. The young star is bare chested for a good portion of the series and even appears nude at one point. He filled us in on the fitness regimen that he undertook to get ready for baring all that skin.
"Basically I had to do 10 hours a day of training. And it was like, 'Give the best of yourself for every second for 10 hours,' and then at the end of the day you have to put your body deep into a bathtub full of salt. Otherwise the next morning you wouldn't be able to move a finger."
With its reported $90 million budget, Netflix is banking on Marco Polo to be a big success. While Lorenzo says he's not feeling any pressure at the moment, he did admit that he was one of the show's only stars to have never been a part of a massive production.
