Ruby Rose: How the ‘OITNB’ Breakout Star is Handling Her Newfound Fame [Watch Video]

When Ruby Rose hit “Orange Is the New Black” the media world went into a frenzy. Who is this hot new actress making things sizzle in the Netflix hit series? Indeed, Rose’s hotness is something that she has to deal with but now fame came alongside it, how is she dealing now with her newfound fame?

According to New York Post, Rose didn’t believe it at first when she got an email from the series asking if she’s interested to audition.

“I’d been unemployed for about a year and figured they wanted me to DJ at an unofficial ‘Orange is The New Black’ party at a club somewhere,” said the 29-year old Australian star as cited in New York Post

Ruby Rose Langenheim, her full name, never dreamt of being a part in the Netflix series, which focuses in the life of women in Litchfield prison. She has always been paranoid when it comes to offers. It also included an offer for a job at Maybelline back in 2010, she thought that “someone was playing an April Fool’s joke on her.”

Now, Rose is playing the role of an Australian inmate named Stella Carlin at Litchfield Penitentiary. Rose’s character is now part of a love triangle with lead characters Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and Alex Vause (Laura Prepon). The role  has acquired her Hollywood fame and now, everyone just wants a piece of her!

With her newfound fame, Rose is dealing with it by putting it to good use. A self-confessed “lesbian” she uses her fame as her platform to speak about gender fluidity and bullying. Ever since, she has been very open with her bipolar disorder and depression.

In fact, a few months before she was cast as Stella Carlin for “OITNB” Season 3, she made a video called “Break Free” where she challenges gender norms without saying a word. It was so powerful and it immediately went viral.

There’s no better way to handle fame but to use it to help others, and that is definitely what this Australian beauty is doing.
