“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.” – Ruby Rose


I don’t drink or smoke. I am very healthy and treat my body very well. I think being strong is sexy. Being fit is important for my brain health and keeping me mentally focused.” – Ruby Rose


“The person I am every single day is the person that’s growing and getting better. The more people look up to me, the more important it is to be concise with what message I want to leave. That’s where I feel like I’m a role model. Maybe not to everyone, but for a lot of minorities, I am, and I kinda love that – the role model for the underdog.” – Ruby Rose


“Gender fluidity is not really feeling like you’re at one end of the spectrum or the other. For the most part, I definitely don’t identify as any gender. I’m not a guy; I don’t really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one. So, I’m somewhere in the middle, which – in my perfect imagination – is like having the best of both sexes.” – Ruby Rose


“I wanted to represent minorities in the respect of people who had been bullied in school or people who were gay or lesbian or trans or people who aren’t blonde haired and blue-eyed. I have short hair, and I am covered in tattoos. I like showing people that it’s within their rights to be different.” – Ruby Rose


“I experimented with fashion as it being more like art, allowing what I wore to express what I was feeling on the inside. Androgyny, rock culture, and grunge – they definitely had an effect on the things that made me feel cool and comfortable.” – Ruby Rose


“I love therapy. I swear by therapy. I couldn’t exist without therapy.” – Ruby Rose


“Only you know who you were born to be and you need to be free to be that person.” – Ruby Rose


“If you want to succeed you must never stop learning, never stop trying and just keep being yourself. You are your own person. You make the choices in life that affect you.” – Ruby Rose


“Not having to succumb to whatever society – whether it’s work or family or friends or whoever – makes you feel like you’re supposed to be because of how you were born.” – Ruby Rose


“Being honest about being bullied in school and my bipolar was not so much of a ‘do I or don’t I?’; it was waiting for the right time. Even before I knew what making a mark on the world meant, I knew I wanted to make a difference.”- Ruby Rose


“I could live my whole life being so comfortable doing things I’ve already worked hard to not be nervous at, or I could continue to push the envelope and make myself uncomfortable and learn and see what I’m capable of, and acting is definitely that.” – Ruby Rose

Bonus Ruby Rose Quote:
