Before her cameo in the hit series, Orange Is the New Black, Ruby Rose was a sensation. In 2014, summer sizzled with her viral video, Break Free. Like an unorthodox Cinderella, she bedazzled in blonde hair, a crimson pout, and today's glass slippers: Chelsea Boots. As she adorned her face with mascara and lipstick, Butterfly Boucher's music fluttered in soft crescendo.
Dressed in white, Ruby Rose personified societal beauty. Just like Cinderella, Rose desired escape. However, her freedom wasn't found inside Prince Charming's castle. With scissors in hand, she cut her locks, shook her wig off, and faced the mirror. She was no longer a princess; she was a king, dressed in tattoos and business casual. As she lit a cigarette, she spoke with her middle finger.
In 2017, her sit-down conversation with Ellen DeGeneres gave fans insight. Before Rose's overnight success, she schooled the host on relative poverty and unemployment. She explained, "I started with a blow-up mattress from Target that me and my dog slept on for about a year. Imagine not getting any work for two years and then getting to audition for the greatest show in the world."
In Jenji Kohan's program, Rose played the love interest, Stella Carlin, of protagonist, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling). On the Season 3 finale, Carlin stole money from Chapman. The betrayal led to Carlin's unfortunate punishment: a maximum-security prison sentence. Even though her fate remained uncertain, Rose's achievements heightened her influence.
This year, Ruby Rose's appearances showcased her as a stuntwoman and actress. The movies Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2, and Pitch Perfect 3 were graced with her presence.
While her career's important, her girlfriend, Jessica Origliasso, was instrumental to Rose's well-being. Daily Mail reported, "They're the exes who rekindled their love late last year ... On Monday, The Veronicas singer was on hand to support her lady love as she was interviewed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show." Hopefully, they'll live happily ever after. If not, their romance will always serve as a crucial reminder: love's love. Maybe even Disney can take heed, and recreate timeless affection on-screen, but with same-sex characters, obviously. Not every princess needs a prince and vice versa.Watch the interview from The Ellen Show below:
