Ruby Rose looks visibly nervous during her first Australian TV interview in five years as she speaks to Today’s Brooke Boney about her new charity role
Actress and model Ruby Rose appeared visibly nervous on Tuesday as she sat down for her first Australian TV interview in five years.
The genderfluid Orange Is the New Black star, 36, appeared on Channel Nine’s Today show to discuss her role as an ambassador for LGBT charity Minus18.
During her sit-down with newsreader Brooke Boney, Ruby laughed anxiously as she discussed her return to Australia after years of living in Los Angeles.
‘I’m excited, I’m nervous, I haven’t done press in such a long time… I’m thrilled. Thank you for having me,’ she said.
She later added: ‘I’m so nervous, this is insane! I haven’t been back for five years so the second I landed I just felt so extremely grateful to be back because I’ve missed it a lot and this country is very special to me.’

Ruby also discussed her role as an ambassador for Minus18, a charity supporting LGBTQIA+ youth.
‘I’m here as an ambassador for the Hilton and Minus18. They’re doing these inclusive [high school] formals,’ she explained.
‘Minus18 is an organisation close to my heart because from the age of 12 or 13 I got involved as just a participant and it was the only place I felt safe to be myself. It had these discos and we could be free to be ourselves and have this community.’
Ruby wasn’t the only one who seemed slightly unsure of herself, as Brooke also cast several nervous glances at the camera during the interview, despite sitting across from her guest on the sofa.
She may have been checking her autocue, or possibly looking at a producer or publicist trying to get her attention off screen.
