Speaking to The Edit, the 30-year-old revealed she struggled to come to terms with her gender while growing up. “All I wanted was a boy’s name growing up – Charlie, Billie, 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 footie with the boys.”
However, Rose admits she’s happy she didn’t undergo any surgeries as she feels at peace as a female. “I’m a woman… I want to have babies one day, so I’m glad I didn’t make changes earlier in my life.”
And that’s not the only realisation Rose has come across of late, theXx: Return of Xander Cage actress admits she’s still adjusting to her international level of stardom. “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.”
