Ruby Rose has become an overnight sensation after stepping into the role of Stella Carlin on the widely-acclaimed show “Orange Is the New Black.”

But lately, it hasn’t been her acting making the headlines. Rather, it’s been her introduction to the idea of gender fluidity.

The 29-year-old said she doesn’t feel completely man or woman. Some days she feels like wearing a skirt, other days she prefers men’s clothing.

Ruby also discussed why she decided to go against sex reassignment surgery, following the news of Caitlyn Jenner.
“I had this jar that I would collect dollars – in fact, we were so poor, it would have been cents. So I probably had 19 cents to go towards this surgery that I didn’t really know a lot about. I think I had seen like a daytime documentary, probably something on Oprah and I was like, ‘That’s what I’m going to do.’ And so I started saving from probably the age of 5,” she explained in an interview with Access Hollywood.
“When I got to 15 was when I kind of decided to get more into my body, and I shaved my head, and my mom was just like, ‘I don’t know what’s going on right now, but if you are happy, then do it,’ ” Rose explained.
“And I decided to change the way that I dressed and talked and realized that I didn’t want to transition, I just wanted to be more comfortable in my own skin.”
About a year ago, Ruby uploaded a short film on gender transitioning called “Break Free,” in which she transformed from a feminine look to a masculine one. The film has since raked in a whopping 9.2 million views.
