Ruby Rose mentioned that ‘I guess what Sydney and Australia taught me was really to be fearless and to be true to myself, not every woman, not every human in the world gets to do that, and I do, and I get celebrated. I want everyone to be celebrated and true and to be honest with themselves.’

Ruby said she felt she’d done everything in Australia that she could. “I think maybe in that regard I should have done things differently in my career because I was everywhere, but at the same time, when you’re getting those opportunities and that’s your dream to do that job, it’s really hard to say no, so my relationship when I left was like ‘oh my god, they hate me’”.

Ruby Rose told that ‘Gender fluidity is not really feeling like you’re at one end of the spectrum or the other, for the most part, I definitely don’t identify as any gender. I’m not a guy; I don’t really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one. So, I’m somewhere in the middle, which — in my perfect imagination — is like having the best of both sexes. I have a lot of characteristics that would normally be present in a guy and then less that would be present in a woman. But then sometimes I’ll put on a skirt — like today.’
