Margot Robbie sleeps much better when there are "doors banging and washing machines and people yelling" rather than in a "deathly quiet hotel room".

Margot Robbie gets lonely after 15 minutes by herself.

The 25-year-old actress has had a rollercoaster ride to the top after first finding fame on Australian soap opera Neighbours before getting her big break in 2013 movie The Wolf of Wall Street.

Since then she has become one of the darlings of Hollywood and, as such, rarely gets five minutes to herself.

But in a new interview with Oyster magazine, Margot admits even though she sometimes wants alone time, she quickly gets bored when she's by herself.

"I always wish I could be alone... but then as soon as I'm actually alone for more than 15 minutes, I'm in a group text, like 'what's everyone doing?'" she laughed.

As part of her job, Margot frequently travels the world to promote her movies. However, when it comes to her hotel choices, the Australian-born star can't think of anything worse than a "deathly quiet room".

She adds that she'd sleep much better in a room where she could hear "doors banging and washing machines and people yelling and all that."

When the magazine interviewer told the actress that sometimes he has to work alone for 72 hours to write an article, Margot replied: "I'd go insane!"

Margot can next be seen playing Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, which also stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Jared Leto as The Joker and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.

When it comes to her back catalogue, Margot recently revealed that she isn't one to avoid reviews of her work.

"I definitely read them," she told Elle Australia. "Not all of them, obviously, because at a certain point it stops being beneficial I think. But definitely I try to get an overview of what the general feedback is, you know it’s good to know how you are being perceived. I try to take it with a grain of salt, because I think if you let it get to you too much it can kind of start infringing on your work the next time. And it stops being helpful and becomes more of a hindrance."
