Margot Robbie thinks going on holiday helps her find acting work.

The 24-year-old actress, who starred alongside Leonardo Dicaprio in 'The Wolf of Wall Street', revealed she secured the part of Donna Freedman in the Australian soap opera 'Neighbours' two days into a trip to Canada, while her role in 'Focus' - in which she appears opposite Will Smith - came about during another vacation.

She explained: ''It seems to be the way I get jobs - I book a holiday, I get to the other side of the world, then I'll get the job.

''It's kind of my method now.''

Margot also recalled her life before she found fame, when she worked at the fast food restaurant Subway and over-indulged in cookie dough ice cream.

Speaking to radio duo Angus O'Loughlin and Ash London for the Shazam Top 20, she shared: ''I made myself sick on that stuff, I ate so much frozen cookie dough.''

Meanwhile, Margot recently revealed she hadn't heard of the popular US sitcom 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air' or DJ Jazzy Jeff before meeting the show's star, Will Smith.

She recalled: ''[Will] was... not offended, but maybe a little surprised I didn't know who Jazzy Jeff was. I didn't understand a lot of the references, which of course the crew were all over. I said his name wrong, I called him Jazzy Jam or something. Will said, 'Are you serious?' I had no idea what he was talking about. I think he thought I was a lost cause.''
