Ruby Rose may be an internationally renowned DJ, TV presenter, model, and now budding actress but one thing for sure is that she's no diva.
In fact, the Melbourne native isn't at all fazed about acquiring superstar status, not that she hasn't already made a name for herself as one of the most recognisable faces on Australian TV.
Speaking to Access All Areas following her opening performance at Nicki Minaj's Perth concert at the weekend, Rose sounded content with how her life was panning out and said she wasn't planning to venture overseas anytime soon.
"There's a lot to keep me here," Rose explained.
"Every time I go (to Los Angeles) I go 'Yeah yeah, I can do it', and then I sort of wonder why.
"I just love Australia. So it's more that, if I go over there and everything takes off, then I'll have to (relocate) and really, I'd just be saying goodbye to a big part of my life."
With her debut single Guilty Pleasure — which saw her collaborate with renowned British singer-songwriter Gary Go on a duet backed by edgy house sounds and beats — out last month, Rose looks set to take on the music scene just as successfully as she rose to TV fame.
And it looks like she has already amassed a music fan base. Rose said while performing on tour with Minaj, even those who hadn't heard her new track were quick to soak up the beats.
"It was great, you can tell the people who are big fans because they already know all the words and that's so magic for me," she said.
"Then there are people who haven't heard it before because they're not into that kind of music that were getting into it — it was great."
When asked whether there was any truth in Minaj's diva behaviour as so negatively portrayed in the media, Rose said the rapper-singer was far from her bad-girl image.
"She's really cool," Rose said. "I know lots of people have different opinions of her but ... the only thing I saw was someone who had put a lot, probably financially and reputation wise, on the line for this tour."
Also on the horizon for the ambitious 26-year-old is her debut film role in the upcoming movie Around the Block, which sees her star alongside Christina Ricci and Jack Thompson.
The film — due for international release early next year — was initially intended as a small Australian production.
"They wanted to give her (writer-director Sarah Spillane) a bigger budget, get a bigger name attached to it, and along came Christina Ricci and honestly, I couldn't think of a better person to play the role," she said.
"Then there was another role in there and Sarah (Spillane) was like 'I'm going to give you this role because you've been amazing throughout the whole film and had we not got this film to international release we would have been using you (in the lead role)'."So to be able to work alongside (Ricci) for my first feature was very cool."
