The 'Orange Is The New Black' star has confessed she used to use one ticket to watch as many movies as she could and didn't have a TV when she was growing up.

She said: "I didn't have cool clothes and we didn't own a TV, but I thought it was normal and it meant that I got to be more outdoorsy and creative. I remember seeing 'The Flintstones' and 'Titanic'. We would sneak into other movies after watching the film we'd paid for, and see as many as possible on that one ticket. We were going to make that ten dollars count!"

It was hard times for Ruby and her mother growing up but they had the help of the local church.

She added: "The parish let my mum rent a house for $200 a month, which helped us out of a really tough time.

"In return I was in the church choir and my mum would do flower arranging and make scones. It was a very free-spirited church and I loved singing ...

"[But] I didn't think singing at church was cool any more. I get a bit sad that I stopped - it was a big part of my life.

Ruby didn't see her "troubled" father much when she was younger but says she didn't really miss having a father as she had other father figures to look up to.

She told the Mail on Sunday's You magazine: "I didn't really miss having a dad; I had other father figures. My grandpa and uncles are amazing. And my mum was an all-star. If I wanted to go camping or climb trees, that's what we did."
