Ruby Rose says she’s glad she didn’t undergo gender reassignment surgery

Joseph McCormick January 19, 2017

Gender fluid actor Ruby Rose has opened up about considering gender reassignment surgery when she was younger.

The Orange is the New Black star opened up in a new interview about considering the surgery when she was younger.

Speaking to The Edit, she says: “All I wanted was a boy’s name growing up — Charlie, Billy, Max, Frankie. You just know my mum wanted a girly-girl princess!… Everyone had Barbies; I had Ninja Turtles and Superman… I was crazy about Archie comics. I played [football] with the boys.”

Adding that she may have regretted undergoing gender reassignment surgery.

She continues: “I’m a woman… I want to have babies one day, so I’m glad I didn’t make changes earlier in my life.”

Of her fairly newfound fame, she adds: “It’s only when I slow down that I realise. I have pinch-me moments, like, ‘Is this my life?’ Because I’ve got four films coming out in 2017, and 18 months ago, I hadn’t even made one.”

Rose continued that she wants to be a role model, and to use her fame for good.

She says: “I want to be the person I wished was around when I was growing up.”

Ruby Rose delighted fans back in November after she shared a photo with former girlfriend – and The Veronicas star – Jessica Origliasso.

The genderfluid actor – who recently hit out at Brighton Pride and Kanye West – shared the snap shortly after Origliasso revealed the pair’s “magical” relationship is officially back on.
