America Ferrera had a confession about her hygiene routine.

The actress played a game with her Barbie costars Margot Robbie, Issa Rae, and Kate McKinnon, and filmmaker Greta Gerwig about each other’s guilty pleasures for Vanity Fair. 

While Gerwig surmised that it was “not food related,” she then guessed that it was “a massage or something. Self-care.”

“Or looking on [real estate company Redfin's website] and fantasizing about other lives,” McKinnon said. 

But Ferrera told them their hunches weren’t accurate. “No, I don’t feel guilty about any of those things,” Ferrera responded. “But my guilty pleasure would be—I’m going to regret saying this —it’s not showering for a few days.”

"What? I never would have expected that," Robbie exclaimed.

Ferrera seemed thrilled to play the game: “Oh my god, this is like a fever dream I had once," she said, as they guessed her answers to questions like, “Favorite icon as a kid” and “Favorite cocktail”—which are Bette Midler and a spicy mezcal margarita, respectively. 

“I don’t know if you guys know this, but America loves a game,’ Robbie said at one point.

While many of the women in Barbie play different versions of the toy, Ferrera actually plays one of the film’s real-world humans, just like Ariana Greenblatt, Will Ferrell, Connor Swindells, and Jamie Demetriou. In fact, Ferrera’s character is employed at Mattel.

The cast is rounded out by Ryan Gosling, Michael Cera, Rhea Perlman, Ana Cruz Kayne, Emma Mackey, Hari Nef, Alexandra Shipp, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Scott Evans, Sharon Rooney, Nicola Coughlan, Ritu Arya, and Dua Lipa.

Barbie is currently in theaters.
