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.


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.


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

The Veronicas have shared the video for their single On Your Side’.


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.”


On Your Side is the follow-up to The Veronicas’ previous single, In My Blood, which topped the chart in the pair’s home country of Australia over the summer and has been certified double Platinum there. The duo’s fourth album is due out in 2017.
