8 things to know about Ruby Rose's new love Jess Origliasso
Ruby Rose, who may have been Australia's most eligible bachelorette, is now off the market, and it's all down to Jess Origliasso.
The pair dated eight years ago, but recently rekindled their romance, and it seems that their love never died in the first place. If this is going to be serious, it's time we get to know Jess Origliasso.
1. She's always loved Rose
According to Sydney Morning Herald, Origliasso recently discussed her relationship with Rose in an interview with Nova's Fitzy & Wippa: She revealed that they'd remained friends after their split, adding that "love never dies."
"We adore each other... We've supported each other through the last eight years of our lives, personally and professionally we've really grown together," she confessed. Awww.
2. She's a musician
Origliasso makes up one half of The Veronicas — a band reportedly named after Veronica Sawyer, Winona Ryder's character in her 1988 film Heathers. The pop-rock band was formed in 2004 and the other half is Origliasso's twin sister Lisa.
3. She's collaborating with Rose musically...
...which is incidentally how she and Rose rekindled their romance. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, a connection was sparked once again while filming a music video for the band's new song, "On Your Side," that Rose wrote, directed and also stars in.
4. She was also an actress
Before their days in The Veronicas, Jess and Lisa were also actresses and played the role of Sapphire and Emerald Buxton on the Australian TV series, Cybergirl.
5. And she's a fashion designer
Is there anything this girl can't do? Origliasso, along with her sister, designed a fashion line for Target Australia in 2007 — a collection which they referred to as "a bit punk princess, mixed with rock 'n' roll." But they've also modelled for Choice Calvin Klein (the denim-wear, swimwear and inner-wear brand) and endorsed footwear brand Keds.
6. She's experienced the ugly side of fame
Unfortunately, Origliasso has also experienced the dark side of fame. A topless picture, which many believed to be of her, was distributed via a porn site, leaving her embroiled in a pornography scandal.
7. She's passionate about animal rights
Origliasso lends her voice to a lot of great causes, including animal rights. In 2009, she was invited by PETA to pose nude after she was spotted wearing a faux fur jacket with the message, "fuck fur" sprawled across the back. And according to Song Facts, in 2006, both Jess and Lisa joined Steve Irwin's animal and conservation charity, Wildlife Warriors Worldwide.
8. She's not shy to show her affection
We love the fact that Origliasso is not shy to show her affection for Rose — which is clearly evident on both women's social media accounts. The pair have been spending a lot of time together recently, and it has produced some adorable photos.
Yep, they're super-cute together!
Could this celeb couple be in it for the long haul? We certainly hope so.
