Playing Margot Robbie Takes a 'Beer Shower' Every Night After Work, But It's Not What You Think

Well, this is a new one!

Margot Robbie opens up about her daily routine to Harper's Bazaar, revealing quite the interesting bedtime ritual -- a beer shower!

While it may sound strange at first, Robbie's not bathing in alcohol -- she's drinking it!

"I like to have a beer shower," she tells the magazine, "a nice beer in the shower."

Though Robbie's become quite a fan of the relaxing ritual, she doesn't take credit for it. The self-described insomniac actually learned the trick on the set of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. "When I did Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, I was saying, 'Oh my God, I can't wait to go home,'" she recalls. "And Tina Fey's costume lady was like, 'Me too. I can't wait to go home and have a beer shower.'"

"She said she drinks an ice-cold beer in a boiling-hot bath or shower, and it made her sleep," Robbie explains. "I was like, 'That sounds perfect!' So now when I get home from work, I have a beer shower or a beer bath if I have time."

"It takes a long time to switch my brain off," Robbie adds of preparing for bed, listing eye masks, sleep music and melatonin as ways she powers down for the night.

But when all else fails, it's a little Harry Potter that helps her get the zzzs.

"I'm a massive Harry Potter nerd, and although I've read the books probably 20 times each, I read Harry Potter before bed and it helps me switch my brain off," she reveals.

While the Australian actress seems to have worked out the perfect bedtime routine, she admits another skill could use a little work!

Robbie recently talked about inking her Suicide Squad co-stars on set, but confessed she lacked a little artistic talent.

"Picture what a 4-year-old would draw and stick it to your fridge. That's kind of one of my tattoos," she told ET. "Like little stick figures."
