This is what Ruby Rose thinks of girls who tell her they’ve ‘turned them gay’

Ruby Rose is a gay, gender-fluid model who can't turn anyone

Ruby Rose has opened up on the trend for people to say they’ve been ‘turned gay’ by her.

The gay, gender-fluid model and star of Orange Is The Black laughed off the idea that anyone can change their sexuality for anyone.

‘When people say to me that I turned them gay, I just laugh, because that’s not really even a possibility,’ she told Galore Magazine, noting how many girls have sent her flirty messages over Twitter.

‘I just think that, as human beings, we are drawn to what we can’t have,’ she added. ‘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.’

Rose also worried about being the ‘it girl’.

‘The funny thing about being called an ‘It girl’ is, well, it’s the kiss of death,’ she said. ‘You know what I mean? It’s like being “in”. Anything that’s ‘in fashion’ ultimately goes out of fashion.’

She added: ‘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.’
