Margot Robbie reveals love for drinking beer in the shower

A Margot Robbie shower is a shower unlike any other.

The Suicide Squad star has admitted to doing something that many of us may have in the past, but few will readily admit.

No, Margot isn’t a never-nude or the sing-at-the-top-of-her-lungs type, instead she likes to down the odd beer or two when leaping into the shower or bath.

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, Robbie revealed that she liked to unwind after a long day of shooting by cracking open a cold one… in the bathroom.

“When I get home from work, I have a beer shower or a beer bath…”

“I like to have a beer shower — a nice beer in the shower,” she said.

The idea originally came from her time working on comedy Whisky Tango Foxtrot, where Tina Fey’s costume lady turned her onto the habit.

“I was like, ‘What’s a beer shower?’ She said she drinks an ice-cold beer in a boiling-hot bath or shower, and it made her sleep. 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,” Robbie explained.

One of Robbie’s more famous movie roles actually saw her pull the old bath-booze trick.

Her cameo in The Big Short, in which she explained sub-prime loans, saw her quaff champagne from a bubble bath.

If it’s good enough for Margot, it’s good enough for the rest of us.
