Ruby Rose stays friends with exes
Ruby Rose is friends with all her exes.
The ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress recently rekindled her romance with The Veronicas singer Jess Origliasso – who she previously dated in 2008 – and while she didn’t find their reunion "weird", she wouldn’t get back together with any of her other former partners.
She joked: "We just took an eight-year break. Is that unusual?"
She then added: "I’ve been such good friends with Jess, Lisa and Colleen, their mum, for the last eight years that it just doesn’t feel as weird as it should or sounds. She’s the cutest thing in the world…
"[But] I don’t imagine getting back together with any of my exes, and I’m friends with all of them, as well. The world is a very strange place."
Ruby – who was previously engaged to Phoebe Dahl – appears in The Veronicas’ video for ‘On Your Side’ and is proud people think the clip is "important" and not just written it off as "sexy and saucy".
She said: "People are writing some really awesome things about it that aren’t just, ‘That’s a sexy, saucy video.’ They’re actually saying, ‘It’s an important video.’
"Because a lot of popstars and boy bands and girl bands, they’ll have the heterosexual love interest and nobody blinks. Nobody talks about it. And then you put a same-sex relationship and suddenly it’s controversial and it’s raunchy."
The 30-year-old actress identifies as gender fluid, and thinks it is "wonderful" that trans issues have become so "important" in the last few years.
She told 9Honey: "I think the conversation went from almost non existent to being on everybody’s mouths…
"Before I saw Laverne [Cox] in ‘Orange [is the New Black’], before I saw ‘Transparent’, before it became such a big thing, I just felt like it was LGB and the T was completely silent.
"In the last two years it’s become such an important topic and I think that’s wonderful."
