We never knew she had considered it!
Ruby Rose recently revealed that she previously gave serious thought to transitioning with gender reassignment surgery, but she's glad she didn't go through with it in the end.
"I’m a woman … I want to have babies one day, so I’m glad I didn’t make changes earlier in my life," she confessed to The Edit
The actress, who came out as a lesbian at age 12 and identifies as gender fluid, began saving to become a male in her younger years.
"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 previously revealed in 2015.
"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.' 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," she added.
The Aussie beauty relishes in being a role model in the LGBT community. "I want to be the person I wished was around when I was growing up," she explained.
Being her authentic self has definitely paid off.
"It’s only when I slow down that I realize. 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. My biggest challenge [now] is to convince a network or studio head that I can play a Stepford wife … So I have no challenges. I went from being underprivileged to being very privileged," she noted.
