To say Ruby Rose has had a fast rise to fame would be a little bit of an understatement, as she has risen to very high ranks indeed a short space of time. Not only has she gotten millions of followers on social media platforms very quickly, she has also landed roles in films such as the upcoming John Wick 2.
But naturally, there are some concerns about being the current “it girl” in the industry. When speaking to Galore Magazine, Ruby “The funny thing about being called an ‘It girl’ is, well, it’s the kiss of death. You know what I mean? It’s like being ‘in’. Anything that’s ‘in fashion’ ultimately goes out of fashion.It’s also not healthy to base your personal success or happiness on external things, like fame, attention, opinion, or money. The less you let that define you the better. Let your passion and work speak for you. As long as you are happy with it, that’s all that should matter.”
Despite her valid concerns over her rapid rise to fame, Ruby does seem to overall enjoy her status and finds various aspects of being such a household name rather amusing.
“When people say to me that I turned them gay, I just laugh, because that’s not really even a possibility. I just think that, as human beings, we are drawn to what we can’t have. We are drawn to fantasy over reality, and often are in love with an idea of a situation rather than the reality of it. I think people like the idea of ‘turning gay for someone,’ but it’s not actually that simple. Ultimately, that statement is just a form of endearment or a compliment, but it’s not real.”
She also touched on rather… odd comparison some have made between her and Justin Bieber, as apparently the two of them are (rather perplexity) compared a lot.
“If I’m going for a skate and I have a hat on, people say, ‘Oh, you look like Justin’. And we do dress very similarly, but facial structure-wise, I feel like we don’t look anything alike.”
She added, “It’s just funny that sometimes we wear the same thing to the same place, and we’re like, ‘Aww man … why are we doing this to ourselves?’ But honestly, it’s such a compliment, because he’s a 21-year-old boy and I’m not 21 anymore, so that’s kind of awesome.”
