Margot Robbie’s friends are worried she’s going to “burn out”.

The ‘I, Tonya’ star - who runs her own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, with husband Tom Ackerley - feels “lucky” to have been given so many great career opportunities, so tries to embrace as many as she can, despite pleas to slow down.

She said: “Things are crazy right now. I’ve done four films this year. More than I’ve ever done.

“People are like, ’You should slow down, you’re gonna burn out.

“But I’, so lucky that I get to work all the time.

“It seems too good to be true to have s many opportunities. I couldn’t possible say no to anything so I try to do everything and see where it takes me.

But the 27-year-old actress admitted her “insane” schedule is leaving her “exhausted”, though she wouldn’t have it any other way.

She added to Grazia magazine: “It’s insane and I’m exhausted but I’m so happy and grateful.”

And if Margot has her way, she’s only going to get busier.

She said: “I don’t need sleep. I want to direct and produce in the future. I want to keep the ball rolling.”

The ‘Suicide Squad’ actress insists she’s had to push herself hard to stop her being typecast from her breakthrough role as Naomi Lapaglia in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’

She said: “After ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, I knew I had to adjust people’s expectations of what I could do as an actress. I was being offered the gold-digging wife.

“I really just started searching for roles that scared me a little.

“If I read the script and thought, ‘I don’t know if I could pull that off’ then I knew those were the roles I had to fight for.”
