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.
