Ruby Rose returns to Australia after feeling ‘hated’

A couple of years ago she headed to Hollywood after feeling ‘hated’ in Australia.

But Ruby Rose made a triumphant return Down Under earlier this week, to promote her ambassadorial role with Urban Decay cosmetics.

Attending an exclusive cocktail party in Sydney on Thursday, the 31-year-old bared her washboard stomach in a metallic bralet and coordinating drop crotch pants. 

Abs-olutely killing it! Midriff-baring Ruby Rose, 31, made a triumphant return to Australia earlier this week…after revealing she headed to Hollywood because she felt ‘hated’

Taking to the media wall at Tank Stream Bar, Ruby drew attention to her slender upper frame.

A metallic bralet showed off her delicate décolletage and incredibly taut torso, teamed with a pair of shiny drop crotch pants that skimmed over her trim pins.

Accessorising with gold heeled boots and a tailored black blazer, Ruby was the epitomy of cool, placing her hands in her pockets. 

Twirling and pinning back several strands of her cropped locks, the actor enhanced her striking facial features with a matte complexion, kohl-rimmed eyes and a glossy nude lip.

Fulfilling her obligations for cosmetics brand Urban Decay, Ruby took part in a Q and A session, alongside the label’s founder Wende Zomnir.

Wendy cut a glamorous figure in a white lycra frock with a hemline of varying lengths, accessorised with purple velvet heels and a thin black choker. 

The event’s festivities were led by celebrity makeup artist and television personality Michael Brown.

Despite her career skyrocketing thanks to a debut role in Netflix series Orange Is The New Black, Ruby admitted back in November 2015 that she felt ‘hated’ in Australia.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph at GQ’s Woman Of The Year event in Sydney, the former MTV host said at the time: ‘My relationship when I left (for the US) was like “Oh my god, they hate me”. 

‘And that’s my country and I was born here and this is where my heart is and I felt like I have to leave, I had to leave.’

‘I think people were sick of me and I think that I had done everything in Australia that I could do,’ Ruby confessed.

Before the big move Stateside, the Melbourne-born personality hosted her own TV show, radio show, had her own clothing line, and fronted a range of campaigns as a model.

However, Ruby said Australia’s tall poppy syndrome prevents hard working and successful people from getting recognition. 

‘As soon as I got Orange (Is The New Black), and as soon as America kind of embraced me, I’ve had this huge resurgence in Australia. I love people loving me here again, because it’s been a tumultuous ride,’ she quipped.
