She’s been in the headlines for so long it’s hard to imagine Aussie star Ruby Rose leading anything but the glamorous life, but the actress has confessed that she almost hit rock bottom before securing the role that made her an international star.
Speaking to Ellen Degeneres, Ruby – who is about to hit the big screen in XXX: Return Of Xander Cage – confessed that not so long ago she was once in a very different place.
'I started with a blow-up mattress from Target that I shared with my dog and now a year later, I'm on the Ellen show,' she told the host.
Things had become so grim since she moved to LA in a bid for major stardom, that she was desperately out of work.
'Imagine not getting any work for two years and then getting to audition for the greatest show in the world,' she said of Orange Is The New Black.
