Ruby Rose in tune with sexuality
Ruby Rose feels "very blessed" to be in tune with her sexuality.
The 30-year-old actress – who is in a relationship with The Veronicas star Jess Origliasso – feels "empowered and strong" to be able to be open about her "healthy sex life" as she knows other people are unable to be due to cultural differences.
She said: "I’m very confident and in tune with my sexuality. I feel very blessed for that, because in different places around the world, people can’t be. I’m lucky I can explore.
"I have a very healthy sex life, and there’s something very empowering, strong, and feminist about being open and comfortable in that world."
The ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ actress admits the idea of getting married is more important because of the equal rights example it sets, rather than the institution itself.
She explained to the new issue of America’s Cosmopolitan magazine:
"According to the news, I’ve been engaged five times. For me, marriage is more about equal rights than the act of getting married.
"When you don’t have equal rights, it trickles down to kids who think, My aunt’s gay so she can’t get married, or I’m weird because I feel the same way. So it’s important to break down that barrier.
"I’m more interested in having a loving, healthy, long-term relationship with someone I might want to have kids with someday."
Ruby is vocal on social media about the causes she is passionate about but she insists her fame doesn’t give her more of a right than anyone else to speak out.
She said: "There are things that I’m always going to be very vocal about, like LGBTQ and animal rights. I have a platform and I can open up a dialogue, but I also know that I’m just an actor. I’m just another person with an opinion no better than anyone else’s opinion. I don’t overanalyze. I just write from the heart, post it, and hope for the best. Then I move on."
