Ruby Rose is getting candid about struggling with her sexuality while growing up.
The 30-year-old actress looks gorgeous in a photo shoot for Net-A-Porter's The Edit magazine, and in the accompanying interview, she opens up about her difficult childhood in Australia. Rose says she knew she was different by the age of six.
"Everyone had Barbies; I had Ninja Turtles and Superman," she recalls to the magazine. "I was crazy about Archie comics. I played footie with the boys."
Rose says she was bullied by other girls for her unconventional ways, then later tried "the feminine thing" by wearing makeup and growing her hair. She was then accused of trying to steal other girls' boyfriends, but was still bullied when she came out as gay.
"'First you want our boyfriends, now you want us' -- that kind of thing," she explains. "I couldn't win."
