"According to the news, I’ve been engaged five times," the Orange Is the New Black star says. "For me, marriage is more about equal rights than the act of getting married."

"When you don’t have equal rights, it trickles down to kids who think, ‘My aunt’s gay so she can’t get married,’ or ‘I’m weird because I feel the same way.’ So, it’s important to break down that barrier," she continues. "I’m more interested in having a loving, healthy, long-term relationship with someone I might want to have kids with someday."

Rose, who has been very open about her current relationship with Australian musician and fashion designer Jess Origliasso, says she's grateful to be able to be confident and in tune with her sexuality.

"I feel very blessed for that, because in different places around the world, people can’t be. I’m lucky I can explore," she explains. "I have a very healthy sex life, and there’s something very empowering, strong, and feminist about being open and comfortable in that world."

After catapulting to success with Netflix's OITNB, Rose is ready to take on the big screen. She'll appear next in Vin Diesel's action packed film, xXx: Return of Xander Cage. But, she promises to use her star power to influence positive cultural changes.

"There are things that I’m always going to be very vocal about, like LGBTQ and animal rights," she explains.

"I have a platform and I can open up a dialogue, but I also know that I’m just an actor," she continues. "I’m just another person with an opinion no better than anyone else’s opinion. I don’t overanalyze. I just write from the heart, post it, and hope for the best. Then I move on."

The March issue of Cosmopolitan will hit newsstands on Feb. 7.
