AT 12, ROSE HAD REVEALED HER SEXUAL IDENTITY
Orange Is the New Black star Ruby Rose (right) has revealed that she opened up about coming out as a lesbian to her mother at the age of 12. The 30-year-old actor, who is currently dating singer Jess Origliasso, said she was initially hesitant to talk about her sexual identity with her mother but when she did, she was surprised to find that her mother already seemed to know, reported The Huffington Post.
“She knew when I was six apparently. I didn’t know anyone else who was gay or a lesbian. So I didn’t really know how to word it. So I was just like, ‘I think I should let you know, that when I eventually get a boyfriend, there’ll be a girl.’ And she was just like, ‘I know’,” Rose said on an American show.
She added, “I was like, ‘Really, mom,’ I don’t even think I knew then. I didn’t think it was possible. Apparently it is and it makes sense.”
