There is more to Ruby Rose than her ‘Celesbian’ Status.
Talking to Net-a-porter.com’s digital magazine The Edit, Ruby Rose – who set to shine in season 3 of Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black – slammed the title she’s often given — “celesbian’’.

Her new posse includes fiancée Phoebe Dahl, actress Evan Rachel Wood and actress Ellen Page.
