Sitting down with Sunday TODAY's Willie Geist, Australian model/actress Ruby Rose recalled how nervous she was to come out to her mother at the young age of 12.

"I was just worried because I didn't quite know it was thing," the Orange Is the New Blackstar told Geist. "I knew how I felt, I knew what I kind of identified as, but the words 'gay' or 'lesbian...' I didn't know anyone else who was gay or a lesbian, so I didn't really know how to word it." 

Despite her nerves, coming out as a lebian proved to be not such a big deal to Ruby's supportive mother, who the actress recalls "knew when I was 6."
