But growing up in Melbourne — long before transgender rights were even at a whisper — she identified as male.“When I realized I was going to develop breasts, I started saving for a sex change,” she says."We just reconnected over doing this video, she wrote and directed it, and is in it with us and we just sort of fell in love."Ruby and Jess, who have come along way since 2008 when they first became an item, are approaching their relationship in a different way this time around."When we first got together way, way back, it was hard to know how much to share," the musician, 31, confessed."Now we are quite protective of what we have, so obviously being able to be open enough but keeping a lot of it for ourselves is something that we're very conscious of and I think it just depends on the people what you're willing to share."But that doesn't mean they're not trying to change everything from their first relationship.In fact, Jess confessed that Ruby loves to talk trips down memory lane."She reminds me exactly how much last time definitely happened.She’s been compared to Justin Bieber and Angelina Jolie—A-listers as famous for their talent and looks as they are their rebellious streaks.And as some have pointed out, when Angelina’s image was recast as a do-gooding mother and activist, she left a bad-girl void in Hollywood. Ruby considers herself gender fluid, meaning she doesn’t conform to male or female constructs.I feel very blessed for that, because in different places around the world, people can't be," Rose, who is currently dating the Veronicas’ Jess Origliasso, told the magazine."I'm lucky I can explore.”While she is 100 percent comfortable in the romance department, Rose, who was previously engaged to fashion designer Phoebe Dahl, isn’t so sure she will ever walk down the aisle, even though she is passionate about marriage equality."According to the news, I've been engaged five times.
But, 25 years later, Rose said she doesn’t regret never going through with the operation. “Ruby Rose in a white floor-length gown and her Hells Angels tattoos?
Rumors swirled that the former couple were back together after each shared a series of romantic photos, but the "Untouched" singer confirmed the news Monday when she told Australia's Nova FM's Kent 'Smallzy' Small that they fell back in love while filming the video for The Veronicas' new song "On Your Side.""It's me. And it is our love story in this video," Jess said.
"It's about the dynamic, the highs and the lows of people in love, in a relationship." Road trip with the most beautiful girl I've ever known and loved @jessicaveronica and the equally divine and force of nature @lisa_veronica plus my rock and soul who is my best friend in the whole world @courtneyafrica A photo posted by Ruby Rose (@rubyrose) on actress remained close. A really long time and it was just honestly the craziest thing," Jess admitted.
They clearly share a lot of history together, and it’s wonderful to see that they’ve remained friends and have cared about each other in all the years since.
Ruby Rose is happy she didn’t rush into any life-altering decisions when she was younger.
“That must be from wherever I was last.” The 30-year-old Aussie is in such high demand lately, she’s barely in one time zone long enough to reset the clock. Tomorrow, she’s off to New York to be on a panel with Gigi Hadid, Lena Dunham, Zoë Kravitz, and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman for part of Reebok’s #Perfect Never campaign.
