Ruby Rose wants kids
Ruby Rose wants to have children one day.
The 30-year-old actress – who is in a relationship with The Veronicas’ star Jess Origliasso – struggled to come to terms with her gender and sexuality when she was younger but admits she is now "glad" she didn’t make any changes and undergo a transition as she hopes to get pregnant and raise a family in the future.
She said: "All I wanted was a boy’s name growing up – Charlie, Billie, 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 footie with the boys.
"I’m a woman… I want to have babies one day, so I’m glad I didn’t make changes earlier in my life."
Ruby is still unsure whether she wants to get married in the future, but if she does, she doesn’t think she’d feel comfortable in a traditional wedding gown.
Asked if she wants to tie the knot, she told Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine: "I don’t know. Can you imagine? Ruby Rose in a white floor-length gown and her Hells Angels tattoos?
"[Wear a suit instead?] Exactly. Like Annie Lennox or Karl Lagerfeld. That’s me."
The gender-fluid star admits sometimes people mistake her for a guy and address her as ‘Sir’ – but she takes it as a compliment.
She laughed: "It’s the look I’m going for, so thumbs up."
The ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ actress hopes to be a role model for other young people struggling with their sexuality.
She said: "I want to be the person I wished was around when I was growing up."
Ruby admits accepted terminology when it comes to gender and sexuality can be "confusing", but thinks they are easy to learn and understand.
Asked if she is a champion of the LGBT community, she said: "Actually, it’s LGBTQI 2 Spirits +. The I is for Intersex and the 2 Spirits is for native people who believe that androgynous people have two spirits, male and female.
"It can be confusing; I have friends who are gender-neutral and like to be called ‘their’, even though you’re talking about one person. But if you’re going to be friends with them, just learn it – it’s not so hard."
