New Batwoman Trailer offers first look at new lead Javicia Leslie in action

Javicia Leslie stars as the new lead in Batwoman and looks to play a role very different role from former lead star Ruby Rose, who portrayed Kate Kane.

Leslie will become the first black woman to play Batwoman and was excited for her new role.

Leslie said in July: “I am extremely proud to be the first Black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honoured to join this groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community.”

New teaser footage shows New Batwoman, Ryan holding up Kate’s batsuit in homage to the former character.

She then proceeded to pop up behind a villain, upside down by the way, and yell “boo!”

The short clip suggests we are going to see a very light-hearted and fun version of the superhero, even giving off vibes similar to Tom Holland’s portrayal of Spiderman.

Last month Javicia, said that it was important her Batwoman has a distinctive look from Rose’s.

She explained: “I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman – it’s her style, her swag, and her moment.

“I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl.

“With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!”

Ruby Rose revealed part of the reason why she left her role on Batwoman was a back injury she sustained while filming.

Will Batwoman be Cancelled? We Could Have a Long Wait for Season 2

Batwoman may have just arrived here in the UK but the future of season 2 looks uncertain.

It’s safe to say that the TV series Batwoman has not had the easiest starts in its short lifespan to date.

Now fresh doubt seems to be creeping into the show’s fanbase as many are now starting to ask is ‘Batwoman cancelled?’

Batwoman first arrived on TV screens in the US back in October 2019 and now, in April 2020 has finally made its way onto UK screens courtesy of E4.

After just half of Batwoman’s first season had aired in the US, the show was renewed for a second season with production scheduled to take place during 2020.

However, production on the show’s second season has stopped, thanks to the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus which will likely mean a delay to the original release, although no date had been confirmed.

Rumours are now circulating that the show may be panned.

Ruby Rose takes on the character of Batwoman, known to us originally as Bruce Wayne’s cousin, Kate Kane.

While most comic book-based shows like to plunge us right into the action, dealing with the whys and wherefores later, Batwoman went back to the beginning, laying out the superhero’s original story.

After months spent travelling the world and learning survival skills, military school dropout Kate Kane returns to Gotham, where Batman has long vanished under mysterious circumstances.

In his absence, her father founded a private security firm to keep the city’s criminal gangs in check, but shuts her out of his operations in a misguided attempt to keep her safe. Taking matters into her own hands, Kane soon discovers a certain secret belonging to her missing cousin: Bruce Wayne.

Admittedly, Ruby Rose gives an uneven performance as the title character.

New Picture of Ruby Rose in Batwoman Costume Gets Us Hyped About ‘Elseworlds’ Crossover

Ruby Rose is set to make her Batwoman debut in this December’s Arrowverse crossover, and this week we received another sneak behind-the-scenes at her in action.

Director James Bamford has shared a new image on Instagram featuring the red-haired heroine.

He captioned it:

“@rubyrose and myself kickin’ it crossover style….Episode 709….ARROW….#Elseworlds………watch out for this woman…..she’s a force! What an absolute pleasure to work with this human!”

The new crossover rapidly approaching – bringing together the likes of The Flash, Superman, Green Arrow, Supergirl and Batwoman – this new glimpse of Ruby’s character has predictably thrilled legions of fans.

First look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman Revealed

The star has begun filming her first episodes as the character

The first image of Ruby Rose as Batwoman has been revealed as filming begins on her first appearance as the hero.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bot3iS6n1zh/

The actress will be seen this December in crossover episodes of existing series The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl ahead of having her own TV series. She will then star in her own TV show focusing on the character’s adventures.

Speaking about her casting earlier this year, Rose told Jimmy Fallon:

“It’s a game-changer. I found out an hour before I did the premiere for The Meg and I was so nervous doing the red carpet so I basically skipped everybody because I kept spontaneously crying. I feel like the reason I got so emotional is that growing up, watching TV, I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero, you know?”

However, fans weren’t as impressed with her casting, criticising the decision to cast a non-Jewish actor to play a Jewish character. Some also suggested Rose shouldn’t portray the first openly gay lead character in a live-action superhero series because she “isn’t gay enough”.

Responding to the backlash, Rose said:

“Where on earth did ‘Ruby is not a lesbian therefore she can’t be batwoman’ come from? Has to be the funniest most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. I came out at 12? And have for the past 5 years had to deal with ‘she’s too gay’ how do y’all flip it like that? I didn’t change.”

 

Ruby Rose reveals her queer icons

After deleting her Twitter account following backlash over her casting as BatwomanRuby Rose has shared a video in which she opens up about her queer icons, including Angelina Jolie and Ellen DeGeneres.

In the clip, Rose says:

“So, growing up, there wasn’t as many gay, queer, lesbian icons are there are today. And I’m so glad there are so many more.”

She goes on to discuss the actress Angelina Jolie:

“When Angelina Jolie came out as bisexual. That was a great one, I was so stoked.”

Rose went on to discuss an incident where Jolie reportedly said she was “most likely to sleep with my female fans,” after she questioned by reporters when she won an award for being the “most beautiful” person alive.

“I just loved the way she said it, like it was nothing. And, of course it was something to me, and it was something to a lot of people. But for her it was just a throwaway comment.”

On Lennox she explain how her the singer was the “showed me what androgyny was and how to be unapologetic about the way you look, the way you act, and the way you’re just yourself.”

“The other thing I love about Annie Lennox is that she has not stopped fighting for LGBT rights and trying to find cures for AIDS, and different foundations and she’s very involved in the community.”

Of DeGeneres she gushed,

“Ellen is amazing. Watching her over the many years that I’ve been a huge fan and then getting to be on her show was one of the highlights of my life.”

Speaking of LGBTQ rights, Rose said,

“I wouldn’t want to stand here and say that [LGBT+] kids being born now or being born five, 10 years ago, are not going to encounter a struggle. I don’t think that [discrimination] is going to be erased entirely in the next five years, 10 years or 20 years. I think we’re on the right path and I think it’s amazing and I feel blessed because I haven’t been through what the people before me went through, and I know the people after me will say the same thing. It’s just going to keep being a work in progress.”

Rose also mentioned other queer icons that have inspired her including David Bowie, Boy George, and Madonna.

Watch the full video below:

After news broke that she had been cast as Batwoman, the announcement was met with criticism with some social media users complaining about the choice.

Of her critics and her decision to quit Twitter, Rose said

“I wish we would all support each other and our journeys. When women and when minorities join forces we are unstoppable.. when we tear each other down it’s much more hurtful than from any group. But hey I love a challenge x.”

She continued:

“I just wish women and the LGBT community supported each other more. (…) My wish was we were all a little kinder and more supportive of each other. Sending everyone my love and gratitude, it’s been a rollercoaster of a year, this month especially.

I am looking forward to getting more than 4 hours of sleep and to break from Twitter to focus all my energy on my next 2 projects.

If you need me, I’ll be on my Bat Phone.”

Ruby Rose As Batwoman Will Be First Openly Gay Superhero

Ruby Rose will play the first openly lesbian lead superhero in a new TV production of Batwoman.

The Australian actress will play the title lead in a new series on The CW Network in America.

The series will see Batwoman’s alter ego Kate Kane portrayed as a lesbian, and is expected to air in late 2019/early 2020.

Kane has been openly gay in the comics since 2006, in an effort by DC Comics to make its publications more diverse.

One of the show’s writers posted on Twitter that the show had “struck gold” with Ruby.

Celebrating the casting news, Rose responded to fans congratulating her.

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/1026886262085496832

The series is part of a collection on The CW focusing on characters from the DC Comics universe.

They include Supergirl, Arrow and The Flash.

It’s believed Rose will make her debut as Batwoman in an upcoming season crossover of all three.

And it’s fair to say fans are excited to see what she can bring to the table.

Ruby Rose Accuses Prada of Using Her Face Without Her Permission

Ruby Rose has taken to Twitter to confront Prada for using her likeness on a handbag without her permission.

The Orange Is The New Black star claimed that the Italian brand had used a photograph of her on one of their Spring/Summer 2018 handbags.

Rose shared a video of the handbag via Twitter, which features a graphic of a woman with short hair, morphing into a picture of her.

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/940425868828016640

Rose then went on to share the photo she was referring to, along with the caption, “I’m obviously just super common looking. No big deal.”

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/940426248924282880

Rose went on to respond to fans on Twitter, stressing that she has no association with the bag or the label. She went on to joke that she was going to go and create a vegan version of the bag for fans.

While it’s a little strange that Prada has decided to use an illustration that looks so much like Ruby Rose in their design, you have to wonder: how many bags have been sold off the back of this mini-controversy?

Anna Kendrick And Rebel Wilson Sound Off On Ruby Rose In New ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Trailer

The first trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 has been released, and the Bellas are officially college graduates.

Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow are all back for the third installment in the franchise, while there are also special cameo appearances from DJ Khaled and Ruby Rose.

But as the new trailer for the film makes clear, things are looking pretty bleak: Nobody can keep a job and their musical skills aren’t getting them very far.

The solution? Ditch the grind, get the gang back together, and play for the troops on an overseas USO tour. (If only every post-grad had this option.)

Pitch Perfect 3 is scheduled for release in December 2017, so we’re all going to have to be extremely patient until then.

Daily Juice: Tributes Flood In Following Devastating Attack On Ariana Grande Concert

At around 10.30pm last night, an explosion went off at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena, killing at least 22 people and injuring at least 59 more.

The bomb was detonated in the minutes after the popstar walked off stage.

Grande has since posted on Twitter that she felt “broken” by the attack.

The 23-year-old American singer posted a tweet to her 45 million followers saying: “From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”

According to reports, she has now suspends her world tour’ following explosion.

Friends and collaborators of Grande took to social media to express their horror too.

Kristen Stewart isn’t here for sexist fashion rules at cannes

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter; Stewart said

There’s definitely a distinct dress code, right? People get very upset at you if you don’t wear heels or something.”

They do indeed. In 2015, Cannes faced backlash after women were reportedly barred from a red carpet premiere — for Todd Hayes’s pro-LGBTQ romance Carol, no less — because they were wearing flat shoes.

But I feel like you can’t ask people that any more. It’s just kind of a given. If you’re not asking guys to wear heels and a dress, you cannot ask me either.”

Daily Juice: Ruby Rose Is Taking Back All That Stuff She Tweeted About Katy Perry

When Katy Perry dropped Swish Swish, her surprise single with Nicki Minaj, people immediately started speculating that it was about Taylor Swift.

What was a little more surprising was the fact that Ruby Rose, a known member of Taylor’s squad, openly called Katy out on Twitter after hearing the song (which has no *direct* references to Taylor).

However, it would appear has had a change of heart. Over the weekend , the model/actress/squad member took to Twitter to say she felt bad about the tweets.

“Being mean doesn’t suit me and leaves me feeling dirty,” she wrote.

She also shared that she instinctively steps in when she thinks bullying is happening, because of her own history of being bullied.

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/866011664117673984

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/866011959996465152

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/866012280248426496

She stopped short of directly apologizing, but explained that her tweets were a reaction to dealing with bullies herself and a desire to stick up for the “underdogs.”

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/866012959985680384

For her part, Perry says the song wasn’t inspired by any one person, in particular. On a The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon appearance, she said it isn’t a diss track, but rather an anti-bullying anthem.

Call the Midwife has some bad news

The show’s lesbian characters, Patsy and Delia, will no longer appear on the new season, but BBC bosses stressed none of the characters would be killed off, leaving the door open for their possible return for the lovers to return. (The Mirror)

Emerald Fennell, who plays midwife Patsy Mount is leaving to play Lady Ada Lovelace in period drama Victoria; Kate Lamb who plays her lover Delia Busby is leaving too.

In 2015 it was revealed Patsy was in a relationship with Delia. The pair’s secret love proved a hit with viewers, as it showed how tough it was being gay in the 1960s.

In the finale of the latest series they were shown for the first time sharing a kiss.

Ruby Rose Doesn’t Seem To Be A Fan Of Katy Perry’s New Music

The Orange Is The New Black star took to social media to criticise the Chained To The Rhythm hitmaker’s new song, which she dubbed a ‘sloppy mess’.

Following the release of Katy Perry’s new single ‘Swish Swish’, star took to social media to criticise the Chained To The Rhythm hitmaker’s new song, which she dubbed a ‘sloppy mess’.

Pose tweeted: “‘Purposeful poop’ to ‘bomb a petit’ to a sloppy mess of writing over the top of Funkagenda..stop trying to make ‘Wit..I mean ‘fetch’ happen.”

Perry teamed up with Nicki Minaj on the song and Rose went on to praise the collaboration, which she says did the ‘only part that doesn’t sound a mess’.

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/865423626392158208

Fans have speculated that the new song is a response to Taylor Swift’s single Bad Blood, which many believe is about the feud between Katy and Taylor.

Rose is a close friend of Taylor’s, and the two are often seen at events together as part of Taylor’s infamous ‘squad’.

Lyrics to Swish Swish include:

A tiger don’t lose no sleep, don’t need opinions from a shellfish or a sheep, don’t you come for me.” In one of her most self-assured songs ever, Katy calls herself a “courtside killer queen” and tells her rivals to “kiss the ring”.

Is this a diss at Taylor? Listen for your self and decide.

Daily Juice: Sarah Paulson’s Reaction to Seeing Madonna At The Met Gala Is Everyone’s Reaction

Sarah Paulson seeing Madonna at Tuesday’s Met Gala was all of us.

Paulson had a major fangirl moment as she walked the red carpet.

Unbeknownst to American Horror Story actress, she was just feet away from Madonna, 58.

Photographers captured the truly epic moment when she turned around to catch a glimpse of Madonna  with her date, fashion designer Jeremy Scott.

Also in attendance was Cara Delevingne who had painted her entire head silver to achieve this look.

Kristen Stewart’s new Victoria’s Secret model girlfriend, Stella Maxwell stunned in this white, beaded, plunging gown.

Ruby Rose rocked this white, multi-tiered gown and her sexy tattoos made the look complete.

However it was Rihanna who stole the show. In a 3D, multi-patterned floral number (because you can’t just call it a dress) the Met Gala queen shut. it. down.

While being interviewed for PEOPLE’s annual World’s Most Beautiful issue, Amandla Stenberg talked about the constraints of the gender binary and the fluidity of gender identity.

I tend to believe that gender as we’ve set it up in current-day society doesn’t actually exist. I’ve said before that I’m comfortable with using the pronouns ‘they’ or ‘them’ alongside ‘she’ and ‘her’ just because that’s a conversation that’s important to me. I don’t necessarily always subscribe to female pronouns just because I don’t think that pronouns are necessarily very meaningful.”

Ruby Rose has also been honoured, and she embraces her sexuality in the issue.

I’m very confident and in tune with my sexuality. I feel very blessed for that, because in different places around the world, people can’t be.”

Wall Street isn’t necessarily known for being gay-friendly. Yet Goldman Sachs is now asking prospective employees to come out as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender right when they apply for the job.

Anilu Vazquez-Ubarri, Goldman’s chief diversity officer and global head of talent, says

We ask for this data because we want to keep ourselves accountable,”

In other words, she says, the bank wants to make sure it is not unfairly discriminating against LGBT applicants. (Fortune)

Ruby Rose Set To Return For Season Five Of ‘Orange Is The New Black’

After taking some time off the Netflix series to focus on her Hollywood career, Ruby Rose is set to make a comeback for the prison drama’s fifth season.

According to the The Daily Telegraph, Rose will appear sometime in the second half of the season.

We last saw Rose on the show in a tiny cameo role in last year’s season four after a major role in 2015’s season three.

A character arc saw her disappear for season four, but it’s understood that Rose will reprise her role on the show in the upcoming season five, which is set to hit screens later this year.

Ruby does not appear in the trailer for the new season, but it’s understood that her character will appear later in the season and is set to cause a major shake-up for the inmates of Litchfield.

“Be true To Yourself” – Ruby Rose Shares Powerful Message Of Self Acceptance

In a candid interview with Edwina Bartholomew for Whimn, Ruby Rose revealed that when she was younger she wanted to grow up to become someone kids could admire.

Rose wasn’t shy to admit that as a child growing up in Melbourne she felt she had no openly gay role models to look up to in the media, film and arts.

Growing up I always looked to the media, TV, film, arts and music to find someone I could relate to and there wasn’t really anybody. I always said that when I grew up, I want to be the person that wasn’t around when I needed them”

Rose came out when she was 12 and has forged a career as an openly gay actress with kick-arse success.

Be true to yourself. Believe in yourself. Whatever you think and feel… that’s you. There is only one of you in the world. We are all completely unique. Don’t be hard on yourself. Don’t have any kind of shame. There is a reason that you are that way.”

The Orange is the New Black star revealed on The Today Show last month that ‘it was a fine thing to do’ and her mum already knew.

She knew when I was six, apparently. I was like, really mom? I don’t think I even knew.”

Rose is currently dating Jessica Origliasso, one half of pop duo The Veronicas.

Ruby Rose Talks Gender Identity Struggles In Latest Interview

Speaking to The Edit, Ruby Rose says she considered gender reassignment surgery when she was younger.

All I wanted was a boy’s name growing up — Charlie, Billy, Max, Frankie. You just know my mum wanted a girly-girl princess!… Everyone had Barbies; I had Ninja Turtles and Superman… I was crazy about Archie comics. I played [football] with the boys.”

Adding that she may have regretted undergoing gender reassignment surgery.

I’m a woman… I want to have babies one day, so I’m glad I didn’t make changes earlier in my life.”

Of her fairly newfound fame, she adds:

It’s only when I slow down that I realise. I have pinch-me moments, like, ‘Is this my life?’ Because I’ve got four films coming out in 2017, and 18 months ago, I hadn’t even made one.”

Since her big breakout, Rose has been schooling us on gender fluidity. Even before Orange Is the New Black, she starred in a music video called Break Free that explores the division between genders.

Talking Refinery29 last summer, Rose said;

I think if I had a choice to be remembered for just one thing it would be ‘Break Free.’ I wrote it, I produced it, I starred in it — it’s my life story,”

Rose is continuing to educate us now. The actress gave a brief explainer to The EDIT about the proper language for the queer community. The term LGBTQ is constantly changing to be more inclusive — it’s fluid, just like gender.

Actually, it’s LGBTQI 2 Spirits +,” she said. “The I is for intersex and the 2 Spirits is for native people who believe that androgynous people have two spirits, male and female.”

Even Rose admits that the proper terms can get difficult.

It can be confusing.” Confusing, but not impossible. She added: “Just learn it — it’s not that hard.”

Preach. Here’s to even more Ruby Rose in 2017.

Ruby Rose Makes Debut Appearance On ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’

2017 looks to be a big year for Ruby Rose, from performing her own stunts in XXX: Return of Xander Cage, and starring alongside Keanu Reeves in John Wick 2 to harmonising with the Bellas in the forthcoming Pitch Perfect movie.

In anticipation of her year ahead, Rose made her first Ellen show appearance on Tuesday, telling DeGeneres the started-from-the-bottom origin story of her success.

I started with a blow up mattress from Target that me and the dog slept on for about a year, next thing you know I’m on the Ellen show.”

Rose, who appeared on the show to promote her latest movie, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, spoke about her time on hit show Orange Is The New Black and how that changed everything for her.

She revealed how she thought her stint on the US drama would go unnoticed, despite her cast mates telling her it would be life-changing.

Imagine not getting any work for two years and then getting to audition for the greatest show in the world. I said to everyone on the show, ‘Nobody’s gonna notice I’m in this, blink and you’ll miss it.’ And everyone was like, ‘No, this is going to change your life’…I was wrong.”

Ruby Rose Insists Relationship With Jess Origliasso Is Not A Publicity Stunt

In an interview with Richard Wilkins, the Orange Is The New Black actress says her romance with Jess came out of the blue.

I didn’t plan that, obviously. The last thing you want to do when you do a promotional tour on a film and you’ve come all the way out [to Australia] to do it is release a new relationship, so to speak, and a video. It just happened by accident but I’m very lucky.”

Rose sparked reunion rumours when she posted pictures of herself with Jess on Instagram in August, the same time the actress reportedly split from then girlfriend Harley Gusman.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BMcE212gcxD/

Origliasso confirmed the news during a radio interview earlier this month when she told Nova FM’s Kent ‘Smallzy’ Small they had been friends for eight years and “sort of fell in love” over the making of the music video.

Last week, The Veronicas released the clip for On Your Side, which was written and directed by Rose.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BMvzucKAGZ0

This video was responsible for reigniting the flame between the exes, and shows the pair getting up close and personal, looking at a “love that cannot be broken” despite one of the girls’ characters battling a drug addiction.

Origliasso said in a statement:

Ruby Rose is known for creating powerful and intensely affecting work and being given the opportunity to collaborate with her artistic force has been an incredible experience, both personally and professionally”

The Veronicas Drop Passionate-Epic For ‘On Your Side’ Music Video, Starring Ruby Rose

Ruby Rose directed and stars in the video, playing Jess Origliasso’s reckless better half.

Rose first came to the project after listening to some of the duo’s new songs in a London hotel room. She explains below.

When ‘On Your Side’ came on I stopped in my tracks and asked them to replay it… and replay it. When I first heard the song I was drawn to the lyrics. Some songs tell the first chapter of a story others only tell the last but here I was listening to a full narrative of someone’s sincere experience with love. It stood out to me and like any great narrative you wanted to know what was going to happen next. Some months later when the girls spoke about making a video it occurred to me they had never done an entirely narrative based video. One without the use of singing to camera. I felt compelled to write a short film for it and see what they thought.  They loved the idea of it and asked if I wanted to be in it. A few days later we shot it over a weekend in Auckland.”

Jess was equally enthusiastic about working with Ruby and creating these two star-crossed characters:

Working with Ruby, someone who naturally aligns with and embraces powerful and impassioned narrative, was an organic step forward for The Veronicas and an inspiring and rewarding experience for everyone involved. The video shares a story between Ruby’s character and mine. It’s a true to life look at the passion and protection of two people falling in love and, ultimately, a love that cannot be broken.”

Then Jessica confirmed the pair – who have previously dated – were back together again in an exclusive interview with Herald Sun:

I’m so proud to be with a woman I not only adore but I respect and admire highly. She is the kindest, most ambitious, most compassionate woman… neither of us were necessarily prepared for how we would feel and the fact that life can lead you back to something so special yet have it feel completely new again. It’s absolutely magical.”

Apparently, the two fell back in love while filming a music video for The Veronica’s On Your Side, and the music video itself actually maps some of their relationship.

Jess added:

When we first got together way, way back, it was hard to know how much to share. Now we are quite protective of what we have, so obviously being able to be open enough but keeping a lot of it for ourself is something that we’re very conscious of and I think it just depends on the people what you’re willing to share.”

And while it’s been eight years since Ruby and Jess first dated, they remember it like it was yesterday.

She [Ruby] reminds me exactly how much last time definitely happened. She doesn’t let me forget anything.

I don’t know, it’s just a crazy thing when you care about someone for so long and then you have the chance to be able to reconnect.
And we’ve grown up a lot, we met very early on and we were very different people.”

Even Jess’s identical twin sister Lisa isn’t surprised that Ruby and Jess are back together.

From the beginning I’ve always seen the chemistry and the connection there. [Ruby] has been a very dear friend. So obviously I’m like yeah babe, obviously you two are in this.”

We can’t wait to see the video in full and are psyched for these two are together. Expect to see On Your Side out later this week!

Watch the trailer for Resident Evil:The Final Chapter here

Behold, Your First Glimpse Of Ruby Rose in ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’

The man. The myth. The legend. John Wick is back; because, as Laurence Fishburne tells Keanu Reeves in the new trailer, he’s not very good at retiring.

The film finds Keanu Reeves reprising his titular role as legendary hitman John Wick, who is forced once again out of retirement when a former associate plots to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild.

Ruby Rose is part of the new cast, and you can see her battling Wick in the trailer.

But according to director, she will be more seen than heard in the new movie.

I don’t know if she was expecting ‘Wick’ to be as kooky as it really is, but she’s mute in the movie, she does the whole thing in sign language. She was nervous for the first couple days, and then she just went for it.”

Chapter 2 – which could potentially be a perfect date movie – drops this upcoming Valentine’s Day weekend.

Ruby Rose Voices Why We Should Be Scared Of Donald Trump

Ruby Rose has voiced her concern at those who sadly find Donald Trump funny.

Warning that we need to start taking the Republican nominee more seriously, after his son tweeted a meme comparing Syrian refugees to a bowl of skittles.

Rose questioned how, in light of this, people can still think of the real-estate mogul and his campaign as funny instead of scary.

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/778115975057203200

https://twitter.com/RubyRose/status/778116167722557440

The outrage was not limited to Rose, Skittles themselves responded to the row, issuing a statement saying:

Skittles are candy. Refugees are people. We don’t feel it’s an appropriate analogy. We will respectfully refrain from further commentary as anything we say could be misinterpreted as marketing.”

Apparently, Ruby Rose Is single Again

The summer of love has experienced a little bit of heartbreak once again.

Ruby Rose has parted ways from her model girlfriend, Harley Gusman, after a three month relationship.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BHdkEklDHvf

The break up will no doubt come as a surprise as just last month Rose shared on social media how Harley had written her a love letter for every day they spent apart to help her get “through” her summer tour.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BH5t5lXDDik/

Rose relationship with Gusman, who is the VP of marketing at skincare company Truly Organic, marked the first time she was linked to someone new after ending her engagement to Phoebe Dahl last December.

The pair’s breakup doesn’t appear to be messy as both Rose and Gusman have yet to delete their snapshots of one anotherfrom social media. And as an insider told E! News, the actress’s busy schedule was to blame.

 

Ruby Rose Has Signed On To Yet Another Action Movie

Jason Statham will headline the deep-sea thriller, playing a former Naval captain and expert diver recruited to undertake a deep-sea mission to rescue scientists under attack from a terrifying threat: a Carcharodon Megalodon, the 70-foot, 40-ton prehistoric kin to the great white shark.

Variety reported Rose would play Rose “an engineering genius and a member of the marine research team” alongside Statham, “a former Naval captain and expert deep-sea diver”

So Does Ruby Rose Return Orange is the New Black Season 4? We Now Have The Answer

It’s back, and Season 4 of Orange is the New Black does not disappoint.

But the question on all our lips this morning – will Ruby Rose be in this season????

2c72c560-16c6-0134-fd5e-0e31b36aeb7f

(Spoilers for Orange is the New Black Season 4 ahead.)

As we all know, in Litchfield, the past has a way of following you around.

So isn’t really any surprise that Piper failed to get rid of Ruby Rose’s character Sella.

Rose has cameo role in this season’s storyline, but this time she’s in Nicky’s (played by Natasha Lyonne) world.

In season 3 of Netflix’s hit, Stella was ended up being the baddy, and after seducing Piper and partnering with her on the illegal panty business, she stole all of the profits.

She also gave Piper a tattoo that said “Trust No B*tch” without her knowledge.

So, right before she was about to be released, Stella was framed and sent to max.

Piper (and all of her friends gathered) up every bit of contraband and hid it in Stella’s bunk.

Bye Stella. Hell maximum security prison.

Moving forward and to Season 4, Episode 6, where we get to see the maximum security prison up close and personal.

And guess who is there.

Yep, we catch-up with Stella once more – hanging around in the yard and attempting to start a conversation with Nicky.

a8233920-16ed-0134-24c1-0e1b1c96d76b

However, we quickly learn that Stella was taking advantage of the prison’s drug scene, so Nicky doesn’t want anything to do with her.

And that was it! Just like that, Stella was gone again.

But it does mean there is always the potential for Stella to make a return, and could come back when you least expect it.

Ruby Rose Pays Tribute To The Victims Of The Orlando Nightclub Shooting Just A Week After She Performed There

Ruby Rose has shared an emotional social media post after the horrific Orlando mass shooting, revealing she performed at the club where 50 people were slain only last week.

Woke up in tears to hear the news about Orlando. Devastated, heartbroken, sick. I played there last Friday and last night I performed after Pride in LA. From the DJ booth you see laughter, love, dancing freedom and beautiful people living their lives not harming anyone. It’s one of the beautiful things to see from stage.

This horrific tragedy has me on my knees at the mercy of a greater power to ask the simple question of ‘When will this end’ … I’m praying for Orlando, I’m crying for Orlando and I am there with you in spirit sending my love and strength.”
