Robbie: “My body looks better if I get more sleep”
Margot Robbie believes she looks better when she gets enough sleep and insists that a good night’s rest is more effective than spending an hour at the gym.
She told America’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine: “I feel like my body looks better if I get more sleep rather than an hour at the gym.”
However, the Suicide Squad actress says it’s not always easy to get enough rest and she describes herself as an insomniac.
“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. ”
Rather than spending long sessions at the gym, Robbie prefers sports and activities she can find fun and more engaging.
She continued: “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.”
The actress also explained how perfume helps her get into character as each scent strongly resonates with her respective movie roles.
She added: “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.”
