Ruby Rose Tells 'Edit' She's 'Glad' She Didn't Have Gender Reassignment Surgery

Ruby Rose takes the cover of The Edit‘s latest issue in a fashion forward look!

Here’s what the 30-year-old Xx: Return of Xander Cage star had to share with the mag:

On struggling to come to terms with her gender: “All I wanted was a boy’s name growing up – Charlie, Billie, 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 footie with the boys. I’m a woman… I want to have babies one day, so I’m glad I didn’t make changes earlier in my life.”

On becoming a role model for those struggling with their sexuality: “I want to be the person I wished was around when I was growing up.”

On her overnight stardom: “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.”
