Margot Robbie needs beauty sleep

Margot Robbie needs beauty sleep

Margot Robbie credits sleep for her trim physique.

The 'Suicide Squad' actress insists getting a good night's rest makes her look much better than enduring long sessions in the gym.

She said: "I feel like my body looks better if I get more sleep rather than an hour at the gym."

However, the 26-year-old beauty doesn't always find it easy to drop off and get enough rest.

She added to America's Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I rush home because the priority is to get as much sleep as possible. I'm something of an insomniac; I've got eye masks and sleep music and melatonin and lots of soothing scents. I do everything possible to try to sleep better. I can't go home and fall straight asleep; it takes a long time to switch my brain off. "

When she does work out, Margot prefers to do sports and activities she finds fun than spend time in the gym.

She said: "If I have the time, I like dance classes; it doesn't feel like exercise to me. Or just playing sports with friends. Sometimes I play tennis, even though I'm not that good.

"If I'm in Los Angeles, I go see Andie Hecker. She used to be a ballerina, and she incorporates ballet techniques with a Pilates machine with weights."

Perfume is very important to Margot as she uses it to help get into character.

She explained: "I always pick a new perfume to help differentiate my characters. Fortunately I was doing the Calvin Klein campaign shoot right before starting this film, and they let me keep the sample of Deep Euphoria, which is coming out in September.

"I was like, Oh, my God, that's perfect for the character I'm about to play. It was good timing. Deep Euphoria is an intense scent but still very feminine. I'm playing a femme fatale sort of character, so I thought she needed a sexy scent."
